Wel thank you, thank you very much ther bobo, get out in the wood there much bobo?
Helpful Sponsor Ads!
BTW there bobo: 3120xp, what is that? is that some fancy Canadian motor cycle?
I think when bobo walks out in the woods ..ALL THE TREES JUST GIVE UP AND FALL DOWN !
Wish it were that easy.
Whoa! Another Poulan man. Old Yaller the 405+ Poulan Pro and his little brother the Woodshark 1975 say welcome to Huskey and Stihl land!
And by the way, my favorite chain is the sharp one.
I use 3/8 and 404 chain
Heck Bobo, if ya wanted a Stihl chain, they come on Stihl saws as standard equipment.
Well, again, thank you all again for the warm welcome to the site, been reading about stoves for a while now, just ai'nt played with the saws to much, my wild thing rocks! Expecially after my little Homelite Ranger died.
404, what kinda saw is that bobo?
I use Stihl chain on my Huskys and my Stihl's.
From what I am hearing here I am going to have to try one. This last couple of redesigned Oregon chains have been a PITA.
Its big saw chain.
I didn't know they made anything bigger than the wild thing What kinda saw do you really need?
I run the same skip tooth chain also even on shorter bars to. Cuts fast and fast to fix if you hit something.
I run a narrow kerf skip-tooth on my HomeLite Super XL. It doesn't bogg down as much running that type. I really like skip tooth, but I have never tried it on my larger saws.
Not trying to hijack the thread or anything, but Yogi's high ratings of the "wild thing" made me take a little interest at sniffin' at the specs. I CAN'T find any! Even the Poulan website doesn't state hp ratings. The only thing I found is that at the BEGINING of the manual is states "For occasional use only". I can find cc's oil/gas ratio and stuff like that, but nothing for the motor head in me.
I found this.
Poulan Wild Thing- 40 cc, 18" bar. 50:1 12, 600 max rpm. 11.2 lbs It did say for "occasional use."
I also found a site that listed a Poulan Pro Wild thing. & it was listed at 2.6 CI/42cc, and also one that was listed at 34 cc w/ a 14" bar. But nothing else.
I don't know what all ya need to know but most saw manufacturers don't publish HP numbers. Just CC's. Here is pretty much every thing you will ever find out about the Wild Thing:

The purple must be the selling point of that monster.
The bore on the Wild Thing is about the size of the bore of the carb on the 3120XP.
That 3120 is a bear..
Have you done any modifications to it?
bobo that is some big hardwear. What do you do for a living?
NNNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICCCCCCEEEEE. How many cord a year do you do.
Every year it is different. We remove top's after the loggers are done. We also clean up windfalls that can make for alot of firewood.
