    Hah, no doubt. While I watched the wood stack itself I polished off a Beast or two. It was a nice day for sure...

    Ported saws? Oh, they come from another country like Ported Rico. I'll tell you my Echo 49.cc looks an awful like the Stihl saw pictured above. Same gray and orange. Whats funny is when I bought my saw from a chainsaw dealer(John Deere) it was the last year they sold Echo...then they went to Stihl...I wonder if there is some connection...I do have some $500 invested in my chain saw with 2 bars and 5 chains and the Oregon clamp on sharpener. I just can't get it back from the fellow I loaned it too. I did sell him my 18" craftsman 5 years ago for a small penny and figiured it would get him off my back from the borrowing thing...but for him it is easier to borrow my stuff rather than sharpen his chain. Also I did include in the purchase a clamp on Oregon sharpening systen with files... He is such a good friend that ...I can't get too mad at him...He did promise me a return of firewood for my troubles...but lately I have just seen so much free wood lying by the side of the road...that I think , if i just had my chainsaw.... He has promised to deliver it back next week, but he has had my big bolt cutters too for the last 2 months...I have to say i don't lend tools to anyone but this guy, but he is bad enough for 5 people.

    Stee- Do you always lay your saw upside down?
    If you're going to port, do the intake & exhaust as a minimum. Just removing casting lines with a dremel helps alot!
