Today is the first day I used my new to me 029 Super for more then a few cuts. I was able to do in 15 minutes what would have taken me an hour with the cheap craftsman! The largest I cut was about 18" in diameter and it handled it with no complaining. I took a short video for you guys. Enjoy!

Nothing like quality to do it right.

 

Ryan, do you have a buzzsaw for your Power Kings? Or was that something even made?

Come to think of it, that's a great point.  You can cut through my part of Virginia on the way to Arkansas.

Saw sounds good Ryan, just make sure to get a pair of chaps and wear some steel toe boots. Never hurts to be too careful with a chainsaw...

Steel toe boots are my normal footwear anyway, so no problem there. I have a set of chaps, usually the only time I don't have them on is when I am taking a tree down; I feel like they slow my movement or they might get caught on something if I have to make a quick get away. I don't have a reason for not wearing them in this video, I was hoping nobody would notice... I was close. :D

Lol you were far from close bud.. They are a little expensive, but get Stihl Pro Mark Chaps, they are top of the line, light weight, and they don't slow you down. They also are great for working in a area loaded with thorns, you can just walk through them...

Great video Ryan.  Don't go getting a buzz saw for your PKs.  It just looks dangerous.  

 

Your Stihl starts and runs great.  You made real short work of those logs. :thumbs:

Since some of you have commented on how easy the start was, I thought I would take a cold start video for you all.
