I have noticed, to no big surprise, but more than I expected, that a lightweight smaller chainsaw incurs a lot less effort than a powerful larger chainsaw. The cheap Echo saw I got as a part of a trade, requires a lot less effort than my Stihl 461, even though it bogs down sometimes. The chain causes more vibration, the low quality of the saw (compared to the Stihl) is readily apparent, but I find myself using it a lot more than the Stihl.
Nice Costco gloves 😂😂😂 I have 5or 6 packages of those

It’s a little on the larger side but I love my echo Timberwolf. Thing I’ve learned with it is if you feed it right it runs great. Used to bog down but took it apart and cleaned the carb real good and have since only given it TrueFuel.

Me and the boys were out yesterday using it. Cutting, splitting, and stacking some extra firewood.

Picked up a bug out home.... Got a dual-fuel generator for it as well so we can boondock a bit if necessary.

Yesterday I stacked the firewood I cut the day before, then I pulled a fruit tree out of the ground using my big truck; it had leaned over way too much. I have another I need to pull out. I am thinking of cutting down a cherry tree that has never produced any cherries in the ten years I have been here. I have some large maple branches to cut up too. The late snow we had in early spring/late winter did a number on a lot of trees and I am accumulating a large burn pile for when the rains start and I can finally burn it without causing a conflagration:

Then I started cutting into a madrone tree that died and that I had fell last year. Turns out madrone trees are good firewood - who knew? Today I will cut up the rest of the madrone and the fruit trees. Most of the fruit trees will go onto the burn pile but the trunks should make some decent firewood.

Last year I picked up a nice BL-22

Haven't shot it much yet, but it was a good deal and I wanted one. That and the Winchester are good lever action rimfires.
My shop recently got a BL22 in made in Japan I like, but I found a model of Henry with long barrel threaded for a suppressor I may go for.
Interesting bit of info. Thanks for sharing
If you want a deal on a machine, dropshipped to you, Lincoln City Sporting Goods will have the best prices and bough in Oregon, no sales tax...
