Thanks for the video and pic's.  Looks like a neat saw. 

 

But on the safety side, I don't think I would be out there cutting up trees in shorts and tennis shoes, no eye protection.

with a 3/8 chain on the saw if it was sharp it would toss saw dust out the size of your little finger nail.

shorts in the woods cutting fire wood is a real no no!  I wear long pants,  and safety glasses,  but the biggest safety thing ......

That's the first time I've heard of a 2 cylinder chain saw. I wonder why they went that route. Buddy is taking a huge risk in his shorts and sneakers. I cringe when I see stuff like that.

they only made the 66 sv for 2-3 years    too much saw for the average user.  its better to be safe than sorry.

Cool!  Never seen a 2 cylinder saw before.  Pretty dangerous sawing like that though.  Need a good pair of chaps, a hard hat with ear protection and mesh visor along with a good pair of safety goggles when running a saw.  Long pants don't really offer the same level of protection that chaps do.  They are made to tangle up in the bar when their hit stopping the saw before it can do much damage.  We have been cutting right-of-way along roads at work for the past 3 weeks now and I would not want to be out there without all that protection when cutting and feeding the chipper.
