    Dropped a log on the 310 from my pallet forks. I've been planning a 441C-M.

    The 310 wasn't worth fixing. Blew a hole in the oil tank when the log hit it.

    Oh well. I THOUGHT about going out to the log pile with the headlights on the Kubota.. but the wife already thinks I'm nuts.

    Well guess that's one way to make sure you can have a new toy, destroy the old one! Looks nice.

    Nothing nicer than a new Stihl! My 361 is plenty of saw for me... will cut whatever I ask of it, and will power a 25" bar is asked to do so.

    I'm figuring I've got to cut 10 cord a year. I've got about 15 cord CSS, and abotu 5 cord of 100% red oak not included in that.

    Right now... the wood roads are pretty frozen. I'm just twitching back and cutting to 10 foot or so lengths. Piling it up using the forks. I think I'll have to straighten up the stacks by trying out the new saw tomorrow.. then it's out into the woods. I'll save the bucking and splitting for when the snow gets deep.

    Did you manage to smash it the first time or did it take multiple tries?:)

    LOL.

    I really WANTED to keep the 310 as a backup saw. When I first did it... I looked from the tractor and said. Oh well, new handle.

    Upon further review.. the handle mounted to a spot just below the oil tank.. and I hand torn that holder out. Figured I could replace that whole side.

    Realized at the dealers when I had it on the counter... it was pretty much integral. He said over 300 bucks to fix it. Just not worth it.

    Nice new toy JP. Have fun with it. That one will tire your arms out a little quicker I think.

    Yes that's a 28" bar in the picture. However, it wears a 20" bar for day to day work.

    Starts super easy. Runs great. Doesn't want to idle once it's hot. Not sure if that's a function of the "break in"mode or not. Says it runs different the first 5 to 15 tanks of fuel. It goes thru the fuel FAST. But it goes thru the wood just as fast. :)
