Postby reeper0697 » Sun Mar 15, 2009 1:48 pm

Put me on a mountain, way back in the backwoods
Put me on a lake with biggin' on the line
Put me around a campfire cookin' something I just cleaned

I've got a craftsman 44cc with 18" bar, and just recently purchased a Stihl 290 with a 18" bar 56cc.
I've definitely got my moneys worth out of the craftsman and still use it for limbing but so far I love the Stihl Farmboss for the bigger wood.
The stihl is definitely heavier but it's a great machine.

My everyday saw is a poulan wild thing, great saw for the money.
 
My big dog is a saw made in the '50 im guessing. Its a Clinton 8hp single piston engine with a 42" bar on it. This thing takes a little while to warm up but once it does will cut anything you put it on. Only downside to this monster saw is it weighs a couple ton and if its a nice hot summer day it will shoot about a 18" flame out the exhaust pipe when under heavy load, oh yeah and its loud as it doesnt have any type of muffler on it, just a pipe.
Hunting isn't a matter of Life or Death
Its MUCH more important than that!

I have a  poulan pro 18" chainsaw,   use it alot to cut down trees and clear fallen trees from my atv trails on my property...i would say i use a chainsaw more than most and never have a problem...
 
 
Stihl  Husqvarna  are top quality saws but over kill for the Non lumber jack in my opinon..i have had my Poulan for 6 years now ...

Well I never use to have one, but this year I shot a 9pt and put him in a buck poll. I ended up winning the buck poll and won a Husqvarna chainsaw.. I LOVE IT!

That's a great prize my husqvarna is 12 years old and I cut 20 plus loads of firewood a year, I have no complaints. I've only had really two problems one was my fault and the other was mechanical.  I was responsible dropping a tree on it, that required replacing the whole lower half of the saw.  Then a couple years ago the chain oiler went out and I had to replace it.  Other than that it's been great saw.

My first chainsaw was a husqvarna 55 rancher. I have an outside wood stove so I burn alot of wood, After 9 years it finally wore out. I replaced it with a husqvarna 455 20" bar. Sweet saw. Hopefully it last as long as the 55 rancher did.
