    They hurt the hell out of my forearms and back any time i use them. It's just a hell of a lot of hard, loud, nasty work using them.

    Although...at least once whenever I use one, I do get the urge to life it over my head, let out a gutteral yell, and begin running around and swinging it around. I kind of fear, one day, i'm just going to do it.

      It is a fun tool, how effortlessly it cuts especially after you freshly sharpen the chain, a child could cut down mighty old oak.

      This things are no joke, you can dig down to china with it. I did 2 miles of t-posts by pre digging the holes with a spinny noozle instead of whacking at it like a baboon using that pipe hammer thing.

      Ive done a shitton of logging, I never could master the not get the chain dull part. I sharpen too often
      Im a good sawyer but others are better than me at keeping it sharp

      Inevitably I will sink it in the dirt, and it really dulls it up in seconds. I kneel to the ones who can keep it clean and running for a long time.

      I'm just about through my SECOND winter chopping wood with my Stihl MS170 and heat only with wood from my 10 acres. I also do forestry management like downed trees. b***h just works. I haven't even cleaned the air filter. I ride her hard and put her away wet. She doesn't mind. I'm literally hard right now typing this out.

      I'm a cuck though since I take my chains back to the local dealer to sharpen, they just do such a great job grinding my baby out I can't help it.

      Don't hit rocks and dirt moron. Mine last 5 times longer if I do that. I leave a lot of logs 90% cut and just whack them with an axe to break the last 10% or turn the log if you can.

        Ryobi has an Expand-It pole saw attachment that can work with any power head. I already had the brushless 40v string trimmer (not the newer 'Whisper' version, but I think it's not worth it. The 40v brushless motor is already quiet enough!).

        It's just like having a 10" chainsaw on the end of a pole. It's at an angle, which helps when cutting limbs.

        The only gripe I have is the torque on the extension pole has to be proper, or the whole thing will rotate/loosen. It comes with a shoulder strap to help balance the weight.

          Im not interested in sticking it on a pole.
          I used a shitty electric pole chainsaw and you cant always get the angle the way you want to.
          I understand it depends on the method of attachment, but in the end getting close and personal wins in my book.
          And that means being able to cut from a ladder.
          Ive cut from a ladder both with standard electric and combustion chainsaw, and its absolute worst thing to do both from comfort and safety perspective.
          How viable is using a short, battery powered chainsaw like

          https://i.imgur.com/5BB83BY.jpg

          to loop off tree limbs the width of an arm with one hand while holding onto a ladder with the other hand? Im asking for personal experience here.

          Its better to wave around a small 1hand battery chainsaw while holding onto a ladder with the other, than doing the same with a standard gas one and not holding onto a ladder because you need both hands to cut.

            I think the favorite thing of idiots using a chainsaw was they're doing a development next door to me in North Vancouver when I lived there 15 years ago.

            The whole city has been taken over by Iranians who know frick all about anything and it shows.

            They needed to cut down a mature holly tree in the back so they couldn't get very close to all the branches so they got somebody with a backhoe to put them up on his bucket and use the chainsaw there. And then what happened is he dropped the tree onto the power lines going to a neighbor's house and rip the wires out from the roof dropping energized lines onto the ground by their back door so they would come home at night find no power and not realize what was going on.

            What's really funny about this is I have fricking photos of them doing this shit so I turn them over to work safe and BC hydro. Last thing I heard about him was that he'd gotten a fine if I think about $8,000 some of it for the violations of safety, the rest of it was for repair costs to BC Hydro for calling out a crew in the middle of the night

              Well, we never ripped power lines, and I don't think we ever used a backhoe as a lift, so it seems like we still have places to go.

      Ehhh, kinda but not really.
      Putting on/taking off the suspenders/bracers is annoying.
      So is getting grass all over your trousers, but there are also chainsaw woodchips, so moot point.
      Then again after you cut the grass you need to rake it.
      And you need faceguard for any amount of comfort.
      AND you need to be careful around gravel.
      So there, using brushcutter IS satisfying, but using chainsaw is too, but with less hassle.
      Chainsaw wins for me.

        Please note the saw blade on the end instead of the grass whip. That thing is mean for small brush and scrubby trees the size of your arm. Extremely satisfying inspite of the shoulder harness.

      what saw are you using?

    Was gonna make my own thread but I guess I'll ask here. I'm a young guy whose father is too old to use his rusty, unmaintained chainsaws anymore. I always hated working with him due to how nonchalant he'd use them though thankfully he had the skill to never injure us.

    We had a storm here a few days ago and a few big branches came down in front of our house, and they're too heavy and awkward to haul around so I have to cut them there... but first I have to get a proper new saw to do it.

    Any of you guys have any recommendations for specific saws and PPE brands in my situation? As is probably clear, I'm a nerd in his 20s who values his limbs. Thanks.

      Stihl MS 170, sunglasses, steel toe boots, ear plugs/muffs. Don't need to splurge on protection if you're just doing this one job. Might want a bigger saw if the diameter of the branches if more than like 900mm.

      You sound scared to use the saw. Hopefully your old man taught you how to actually use it... You won't hurt yourself man. They're really easy to use, and as long as you're switched on and watching what you're doing you'll be fine. Don't push the tip of the saw into anything as that's how you get kickback. Don't stand directly behind or above the saw as you cut, stand slightly to the side to remove yourself from the line of fire if it does kickback... Don't stress man you'll be fine.

          I think most complaints about chainsaws stem from the same place as complaints about snowblowers or other seasonal use gear, they tend to be hard to start if you let them sit for six months and expect them to run out of the gate.
          Anyone using them in a (semi)-professional fashion will be happy with easier brand.

            We had one as a kid, fully admit it was our fault on the neglect.

            We neglected the chain never replaced it, neglected the chain oiler, it leaked all up in the blow molded case between the layers

            and neglected the little fuel plunger and fuel tank the the point where the plastic dry rotted and we just threw it away since the repairs cost more than a new one

            Other than that it lasted 5-15 years of hard use , I think the average person would benefit from one of those new electric ones

            I’ve only cut down like maybe 30 trees with our old one … rest of the uses were for trimming trees and yard work which an electric one would excel at

            And rent when I need to down a tree

              how did you manage that? Do you mean you never sharpened it or just never took it off?
              Can't see how it would last years of use without sharpening, or replacement.
              The electric ones are great if you want to work a lot when you really need to get something done.
              But for the average person, who might only trim some branches every once in a while, they are much more abuse tolerant. A better option still would be a manual pruning saw.

              You should know how to a sharpen a chain properly so it doesn't give you a banana cut, you also need to file down the rakers every third or fourth sharpening so you're taking a proper depth of cut otherwise you'll end up just taking dust out

                It just takes practice. There's a couple of ways to do it but always use one of those plastic handles that have a little angle guide at the base of where the file fits in to guide you to being at the correct angle. But you don't have to have the absolutely correct angle just be consistent from one side to the other. The other thing that helps is to pull back on the tooth slightly angles up a bit as you're filing it to get a nice proper cut all the way around. You also have to clean your file off once in awhile does the shavings pack in and prevented good clean cut by the file as you file through the teeth on the chain.

                Having could position that's comfortable while you're filing is important too. Nothing sucks more than trying to file a chain when you're cold and you're in an uncomfortable position usually I do it kneeling over the handle and part of the body of the saw to stabilize it.
