I've never owned my own chainsaw. Never really needed to. But I picked up a Stihl M291. It seems to be a nice saw. We have a HE Natural gas furnace. But, we also have a nice Fisher wood stove. I haven't turned on the furnace yet, and I don't want to. I'm a mans man, but I've got a HEALTHY amount of fear for a chainsaw. I run a green chain. And that's just fine with me. Now I need a bigger trailer. 6x10 single axle ain't gonna cut it.
