Either you don’t hang out on Arboristsite at all, or you’re a regular there taking a quick self-amusement break from debating favorite two-stroke oils there by dropping the Stihl/Husky bomb here.
Thinking of that, it might be funny to drop in there and say something about tonewoods, or tone being in the fingers.
Pass the Tide-pods, brush. . .
Why is chainsaw guy wearing camo? Poor deer, it’s inhumane!
I joined a Facebook group a couple weeks ago called "Looks like an OSHA violation but ok". It's filled with these sorts of pics and videos....most real, some staged like the chainsaw. The real ones will curl your hair...or uncurl it!! I actually 'snoozed' the page for 30 days because there was way too many posts and I got tired of looking at dumbasses doing dangerous and stupid things. I can stay home and get all of that I need thank you.
On any given day, we do things that might kill us, many times without giving it second thought.
Just kidding. My good friend is a Stihl guy, I'm a Husqvarna guy. We're always giving each other crap about it.
But after owning a 371xp Husqvarna for over 20 years that took melting in a fire to kill it. I'll buy another Husqvarna. Use Stihls at work, used a lot of them before that. Just like the Huskys better.
But only the PROFESSIONAL saws!
No way would I buy the cheap ones they sell at Home Depot or whatever, for one cord a winter homeowners, in either brand.
Not real sure about the new saws with the electronic tuning gizmos either.
Really it's the "Ford vs Chevy" pickup type argument.
They both make good saws and they've both made bad ones.
You can tell who's never used a chainsaw in this thread
Or pulled a trailer.
Speaking of chainsaws. After the fire my brother grabbed a trashed 372xp Husky for me, really cheap. Guy ran it way lean and took out the piston and scored the cylinder.
Out of curiosity I pulled apart the mostly melted 371. Surprisingly the cylinder "jug" and piston are still in good shape, I'll use those and the flywheel. All the plastic stuff and the carb melted.
Considering the amount of use it got since 1998 I was shocked to find it still looking this good!
Especially after using my buddy's gas all one winter. He bought the dreaded ETHONAL gas. Had I known that at the time I wouldn't have put it in my saw. It didn't hurt it at all.
Just gonna do this one up cheap, and buy a new smaller lighter saw, maybe 50 or so CC.
71 CC is nice, but I'm getting to the age where a little saw would be nice. I'll still have the bigger one if I need it.
Your piston skirt seems happy with your carb tuning, and the state of your crank seals!
I was kidding too. As it happens, I inherited a relative’s new, never been fueled MS170 last year. A “leisure saw.” But it’s been great for around the farm. Suits my needs: brush and limb cleanup, the occasional fallen tree, and firewood for the occasional-use garage wood stove. Well balanced, comfy handles, well-engineered fuel and oil caps (not the flippy caps). My old beater 42cc Poulan (muffler mods and richer tuning) is faster, but heavier, noisier and leakier.
Back onto the subject of assisted extinction through dangerous powered equipment, I got this brush shredder blade for my Redmax trimmer for Christmas and so far have nuked a lot of thorny, viney stuff and still have all my toes and fingers.
Florida man strikes
@mexicanyella That's a wicked looking blade! Bet it works pretty good!
Now that is dumb !
I thought the rock face was a separate picture.
So I saw the trailer hitch picture on Facebook and of course comment in my usual non-offensive way about the stupidity and danger to the other poor soles on the highway.
I offended somebody. Can you believe it?
Guy posts something about how I must've been born after 1970. Because people born prior to 1970 have knowledge that people after that don't.
Being born in 1964 the only "secret knowledge" I've got is, stupid people have been around as long as people have been on the planet.
There's no arbitrary date for stupid!
We learn skills based on the time we live. Old skills are lost and new ones come along.
Stupid is timeless.
Going out to cut some firewood, I can't quite get photo #2 out of my mind
Hopefully I am a little smarter than that
