LOVE IT!!!   :thumbs:

 

Although it looks like someone took time to "fit" the tire chains down into the tread.   :wallbanging:

The muffler arrangement makes the machine look like a Dr.Seuss creation. Bet the Once - ler had one.

   Not entirely sure I get the muffler :poke: why would you go thru the trouble of doing something like that then point it in the direction of where you are working????  Otherwise I like it!!!  The danger aspect is great, I have one like that behind my big tractor.

With the muffler in the right location, the noise and fumes would be closer to the operator than with it above his head. Why you would point it at you though is anybodies guess unless it is strategically placed to draw the sawdust away.

The muffler is strategically placed so that when [not if] you cut yourself with the blade, you can use the heat of the exhaust to coagulate the injury so as to not bleed to death.........

wow that's the late model unit, the older one would fell or you could buck either way. Looks to be a model 19 Briggs so it would be high powered. Osha wouldn't be able to say anything about it, as they deal with work place stuff. Underwriters Lab would be the one to blow the whistle now days.

Very cool and scary. Can't say that I would be first in line to use it though :D

 

Is the muffler pipe a little loose that it might have rotated and was originally pointed in another direction? Would suck breathing the hot exhaust while cutting.
