    I've got two nib Winsor 36in 50ga bars with oragon chain for $170. I put one on my 360 as I want to have a large bar on the few wolf trees I cut. I have to baby it but it's still faster than cutting from both sides.

    I bought 3 of them on the bay site as I wanted a longer bar for those few times I cut stumps and wolf trees. I've only used it about four times but it has saved time and effort. I wouldn't want to use it very much cause it isn't balanced as it is bar heavy but I can make a cut in one pass instead of two and trying and hit the other side. If I run into something bigger that I have to bury the bar I don't think I'd have enough power then.

    Sorry...

    I have split the case and replaced the bad gasket..Again the bearings were fine it was the case gasket that let go..I thought $60+ for bearings was a little much to pay to replace a $6 gasket..Anyway I had the shop retune the carb last Sat. and now shes running like a top....To seat the new bearings I put the bearing in the freezer and baked the case half at 200 for one hour...With the right sized socket they went right in...

    I also had to drop off my 038 to get a carb kit installed...

    $9 for the kit and $15 to install..I had to let them do it and save myself the trouble.....

    rough for sure...I'm to old and it is to hot lol...

    We killed two big copper heads yesterday..We seem to avg 3 a week... I like it when we walk into a hardwood haler and we get to cut timber but most the time it is what we call danger bushes...

    Ok let me elaborate a little..I was called in to cut danger trees but they are few and far between so most my time is with the hand cutters clearing anything that the bush hog can't get to.The bush hog goes just about anywhere so the stuff we do is usually strait up.One day we were talking about the fact that there just is not enough of the danger trees and someone said there are plenty of danger bushes for us to cut and the term stuck. It's one of those you had to be there type thing I guess but now when ever someone new comes along we warn them about those killer danger bushes....

    On a side note danger trees are any tree that endanger the power line..Most are not a big deal but when you come up on one that can hit the line we have to do what ever it take to make sure it doesn't..Folks may or may not know this but all we have to do is get a tree to fall with in 3 foot of the line and it will arch and run the power to the ground..It will also burn all the leaves off and zap you if you get to close..now on the big 500 lines you your self will hold a charge till to touch a truck or the tractor and so on.. You know like start to sweat a little and pick up your saw and you get zapped and not a little zap either it does hurt..Waiting for it to stop my heart one day....

    Yesterday one crew was out in a bucket truck removing some trees 80+ feet in the air in a thunder storm wind blowing and so on...Just glad it was not me :)
