Those are all Sissy saws. Here's a Man's saw.

yep! those are cool to watch!:worshippy2:
but will it cut more than 1-3 cookies before toasting a piston?:bigrofl:
full out racesaws, bike saws and frankensaws are fun to run and watch, but they won't put wood in the stove or furnace:smile1:
i implore anybody who hears of a show near them to go and have a watch. it's a very good time and lots of fun.
good solid fun for the kids and it keeps them away from the t.v. and video games:shoot2:

Your right those are cool to watch, I dont think I would want to be the guy holding on to it though! A good example of some of the non-practical things that someone thought about and then proceeded to make, just because they could :smilewink: .

I have a 20 year old Husky #51,18" bar.The screen in the muffler stopped up the other day,cleaned it out,adjusted the carb,runs like new.This thing is smooth,starts easy,will sit and idle,doesn't shake,it's been a great saw!I wouldn't trade it today for new saw of any other brand.:bounce:

Just picked up another saw, a Stihl 044. Good powerful saw. Also just bought a new Oregon Power Match 28" bar and a skip tooth chisel chain for it. This will be the saw I use with my Alaskan saw mill.

I don't know if I qualify as owning a chain saw. I have 3, of which none run at the moment. My Husqvarna starter rope broke, plus it was running like crap already, my Craftsman needs a new primer bulb (got one but not put it in yet), and my little Poulan is in need of service too.

Yikes, the new rope shouldn't be too bad on the husky. Darn saws can be tempermental.

Not bad at all, just not taken the time. To tell the truth, it's hard to beat the cheaper Craftsman. It saws like crazy for a small cheaper unit!

I have 2 saws. I inherited both of them. One's an Echo and the other is a Stihl. They both have 16" bars on them, but the Stihl is rated for up to a 20" which I may do at some point.

Heres my ancient Stihl 041 Farm Boss. Bought for $40 8 or 10 years ago now, just finished with a re-do of some various minor issues.
Removed and cleaned the carburetor
replaced fuel hoses
replaced the "starter cup"
heated up the broken end of the rewind spring to get the original hook shape bent back into it
repaired the rear body by the spark plug where it was cracked, JBWeld, plumbers strap and a few rivets
JBWelded in some studs to the body to hold the tank side on as the holes were stripped out
custom cut a coupling nut to use on my JBWelded studs as I could not get a wrench on afterwards OOPS
All back together now and ready for a few more years. Shes a heavy old sucker but sure cuts good yet.

I bought a new Stihl 026P/20" bar in 2000 to replace my tired O-L-D Poulan 306A/20". I'd put that Poulan up against any Homelite XL's made back then. "Some day" I'll rebuild that saw just to hear what a loud saw sounds like again. I don't miss having to fill it up so often though, the Stihl runs 4 times longer on a tank of gas.

(Insert stock Stihl 026 photograph "HERE" and one of a Poulan 306 "HERE"... Best I can do tonight for the "WWP's Guys".:D)

3 Saws all Stihl as I got the best service from them, 028, MS290, MS380. All for personal use as we have a large home and burn wood all winter

I got two Stihls and a John Deere. Also, a Sihl "cement" saw which is a wheel saw that'll cut through just about anything. Pictures are due to come soon I guess.
