looking to save a few bucks and make your own chainsaw? these Russians are crazy.
Well, sure, that's fine for the little stuff, but sometimes you have to get a little more serious!
i'll give you that one.....but let's see you carry it up a tree to get a small branch.
I said yours was fine for the little stuff! :p:D
If the limb is too high, I just use a different tool to get it.
doesn't get easier than that.
The excavator operator has a vid and he bets his partner that he can fell the tree in a specific place and that it will reach out to a public walkway/bike trail. He was off his mark by about 6 inches and the try didn't make the trail, but shrapnel did. And yes, his partner was holding traffic on the bike trail while this was going on.
Chainsaws are great, they just need frequent service, cleaning, sharpening, oiling, gas fill ups. Can't live without them.
I don't know if this is appropriate here or not, but I just bought a Ryobi 12" 40V LiIon chainsaw and I am impressed with its capabilities. Just a little slower than my 18" Craftsman but a lot less maintenance and a whole lot easier to start. I have used the crap out it already, I've used it more in the last month than I have used my gas saw in 8 years.
Of course, now that I just bought it, I find out that Ryobi is replacing it with a new model that has a more efficient brushless motor and a 14" bar that they claim will match a gas saw the same size. The downside of the Ryobi chainsaws is they don't come with a case and there are no cases available to buy for them.
I have about a dozen cedar trees on my property which I was recently trimming up. I have an electric chain saw, but even though relatively small, it is still too big for clean cut of small branches. It finally dawned on me that I had the perfect tool for the smaller work already - my Milwaukee reciprocating saw fitted with a long, course crosscut blade. It zips right through the branches, gets into tight areas and allows a very clean cut tight to the main trunk.
