    I have NEVER owned a chainsaw before, so I am seriously stoked to have this sweet "Dexterized" Stihl 036 as my first!!

    I have already spent 2 hours in my basement practicing the "full throttle, full choke, half choke" business! And installing the chain and bar. Tomorrow I will fire up the beast and "cut some cookies" and buck some logs to get m feet wet!

    * I wonder if my neighbors would mind if I did it now! :p

    I've said it before and I will say it again and again... if you EVER need another saw, and c'mon you can never have TOO many!.... Dexter is your guy! VERY honest straight shooting man of integrity !!!

    Hi Desert Southern California 3000' level



    From what I read this is a sweet firewood saw.
    I don't think the neighbors would mind. They probably wouldn't know it was you anyhow unless you told them about the new saw =)[/quote]

    Must be the perspective of the picture - that bar looks huge.

    Wonderful looking piece of equipment. Is it true what they say about the size of a man's feet, and the size of his bar?;lol

    I dunno, looks pretty rough to me. There's clearly a smudge on the bar. For a saw that is only 15-20 years old, I would expect much more. I think ol' Dex pulled a fast one on ya. ;)

    Wait till you crack the throttle and lay them teeth into some wood. You think you are exited now.....==c

    Edit: Be aware, this is a fairly powerful unit. Approach your cuts as though you think the saw is going to try and jump off the log and get you. As you get some trigger time you will become familiar with it, but in the beginning consider every cut the next most dangerous. Move deliberately.

    Just having a little fun. 036 should be pretty well open muff compared to the 361. I had an 036 and a 361 and there just about as nice as you can get for firewood saw. Keep it simple and keep it sharp!
