    How do you like the chainsaw buddy? My wife bought me one for my birthday a couple years ago, but I have not used it yet.

    It actually works pretty well. It is good for cutting small branches.
    It is a good idea to use on a small lightweight saw, otherwise the saw gets a bit front heavy.
    Mine is mounted on a small cheap Mculloch electric.

    All nice and shinny looks good...The 880 in a cross cut is slow unless the wood is very large.

    Jay, I hear you. For now, I'll stick to the misery whip variety above the mantel.
    My father-in-law (a logger for 50+ yrs) got the blue one for xmas. We got it running but either end was a beast to hold to. The other one next to my 372 is in use at a friends saw mill.
