    I'm also getting to the point where I might buy a crap used saw, fix up, and keep for a loaner. I'm all for letting folks borrow my saws, but I've realized that since they don't cut much, the chain comes back in real bad shape and who knows what they are cutting. Had a friend ask to borrow a saw next week to cut up some logs - I looked - they are completely rotten punk logs on a hillside - with, I'm sure, lots of dirt buried in them from the run-off. No need to subject my good saws to that. Cheers!

    When I loan out a saw,
    I go with it :)
    I've seen & heard a few thing that make me cringe.
    "Oh, you have to add oil ?. " (have heard both "to the saw or to mix the gas")
    "I thought both tanks took gas."
    "What is mixed gas? "
    "Not a very good saw, after I hit something shiny , it took 2 tanks of gas to cut up one log"
    "Your chain sure gets loose & comes off allot"

    So after a nephew lost some parts off my Husqy 61, if the saws goes cutting, so do I. ::P

    There you go Dave - too true. I lent my 025 (gone now) to a buddy for a little bit of cutting - brand new chain - came back with rounded teeth - barely able to file back into shape about about an hour of work - PITA! Cheers!

    I don't think he's ever used them. The user is sitting on the ground, out of site. I don't even see the obligatory grime around the bar oil filler!

    Funny, they were all just freshly cleaned and I try and clean them after every use, the 550 was new, and that is mostly hickory and red oak. The 445 was bought in 2008.

    That comes from noodling a round. Those aren't cross cut chips.;)

    It's called noodling, comes from ripping logs or rounds length wise.

    I'm a firm believer that my tractors should be green, and my saws should be Stihl... but that is one sweet picture!
