    Yep... but if you haven't already done it, you have to lay one round on it's side and give noodling a try. It's about 10x faster than vertical ripping (a.k.a. milling), and a heck of a lot easier on your saw. There's a reason the milling folks use BIG displacement saws.

    got my bar spacers thanks to a generous member here and made some mods to the bar to fit. Threw the stihl bar and chain on and kicked the piles ass. I should be done with it by this weekend at this rate

    All the chips can't act as mulch, which might not be a good thing on a lawn. :)
