Ok folks, I have issues. I know. A property very close to me had several medium (18-24") sized Oak trees dropped (professionally, very close to the little house) on Thursday. I of course, wandered over there inquiring about the wood, business cards in hand of course. The property owner (whom I have spoke to on the phone before, I cut up the blowdowns from Sandy in the front yard of the same property.) was over there with his Dad's 039 and I could tell from 500 yards off that the chain was beyond dull. I told him to take a break and I would see to his saw. (Threw the chain on the grinder quick and cleaned his air filter.) He said the wood was spoken for but if it fell through, he'd be giving me a call. The wood was promised to a girl I'd met before (also during Sandy ....) so I said if they didn't want to bother with the big stuff, I'd gladly take it and if they needed help with any of their equipment, I was local and ........ Saturday comes around and I hear a chainsaw wailing over on that side of the neighborhood. Me and my son took a stroll over that way and I noticed she was going after the logs with a brandy new Husky 455R. Good on her, but that chain sounds awfully dull! I didn't stop her and she left shortly thereafter. Today I hear two saws screaming, so I'm real curious now. I could hear neither saw was doing much other than burning fuel and making noise. This is horrible to listen to. I'm sure many of you reading this can relate. So after some brief consideration, I saddled up the aftermarket 460 (20", 8 pin rim) , donned the chaps, threw the cant hook and my fuel/oil into my little tractor cart and cruised on over there. She had reinforcements, 2 young guys (20's?) that looked fairly capable and a F350 dump truck. (gotta love a woman who comes to the job prepared.... ) One was trying to "saw" (you know the motion) through a round with his MS290. The conversation went like this: "How long?" "Huh?" "How long do you want the rounds?" "Oh we're just cutting them small enough to lift." "OK, easy 'nuff." "You want to help us out?" (she asked, puzzled) "I have an hour or so before I have to go. We'll see how much I can get through." "Thanks!" Little under an hour and a half later, I had 95% of everything over 12" (and there was quite a lot of it, best guess maybe 3 cords give or take?) turned into either rounds or chips. The MS290 was the first saw to get sidelined followed by the 455R. The guys loaded the truck and she took off to dump it. (about a 15-20 min round trip) It took all 3 of them to keep up with me and that 460. I rocked SIX chains in the process, changing them out like tissues. Ran through about 3+ tanks of fuel. I've never seen so much metal in trees before. A hose hanger, screws, nails, a 1/2" lag bolt. Jeeeeze. So I will be grinding chain again soon, no biggie really. I am getting two 4'-5' lengths for "test logs" so be on the lookout for more videos soon.
