    Even at 6.56 MPG, it's still cheaper to move wood with the beast than my Canyon. Easier on the truck too. The Canyon needs rear springs. ;lol

    One thing not mentioned yet (unless I missed it) is when you sharpen by hand with a file, wear leather gloves! Especially as the day gets long. Blood looks cool on the bar, but in reality those cuts hurt. Done it many times. Most of the sharpening I do now is with a dremel and stone. I find it more accurate, quicker and easier.
