What's your wood cutting tool? I just ordered this because I'm a weeb. No bully.
>I'm going to make it, dammit.
>not cracking the wood in twain with an angry grimace
folding saws are great, anon. essential gear.
>buys folding saw
>im such a dweeb! Kind of look like katana!!!
I also use a folding saw, but not for chopping down the tree, thats what axes were made for.
>hurr de during an axe is better than a saw
Oh, those gas powered axes must be amazing.
I hate those dead gays so much.
Yeah but you gotta admit a conference table from a slice of that would be so based.
What did that redwood go to? Did they make cool shit that’s still around or did they turn it into a shit ton of 2x4’s?
it rotted in a warehouse after WWI
Really? Damn. If the wings of the Spruce Goose were made of those trees and it was still in a museum, I would allow it.
Trees grow back, Anon. Each person in that photograph had an individual soul.
>2,000 year old tree just grows back bro
You're retarded. The lowland forests are on a 50 year harvest. What they did was a crime against humanity.
>fell for weak bait
>incoherent autistic screeching
>says nothing interesting or intelligent
People actually believe that. Not that someone your demographic has any clue one way or another.
Except for the chainsaw behind the hedge trimmer
trees also have souls
trees are part of mycelium networks they don't have individual souls, just contribute to the overall soul of the forest
cutting down a tree is like removing a persons finger not the head
do you lose your soul if you get nerve damage to your spine?
i mean this from the very bottom of my heart. do us all a favor and redact yourself
>chopping down the tree
why are you chopping down trees to make a little fire?
Just shoot through the trunk with a 12 gauge, moron.
>PrepHoleolorado PrepHoleamping trip years ago.
>We forgot the hatchets and saws in the car a mile from our campsite.
>I brought high brass steel birdshot.
Yes, some PrepHoleommandos decided to use a shotgun to cut firewood to length. Yes it worked with one shot per section.
A whole mile oh my lord what a mission to go back and get them
nothing weebish about folding saws, just don't put waifu stickers on it
I recommend a over the shoulder sling through the hole in the bottom of the handle, small string will work fine, gives you both hands to carry the wood back and not need to go back to get the saw
Folding saws are for sternums, not sticks
Silky gomboy and gfb hatchet
Like a true redditor
I wouldn't know, but maybe
There’s also the mini cordless chainsaw depending which zone I’m camping in.
That’s a hedge trimmer you gay
Who you steal the gear from Armaud?
Imagine actually carrying power tools with you to cut firewood.
A shitty rigid brand at that.
Back when I was running DeWalt, I had to bring 2 sawzalls in my overnight pack.
why.. why not just bring extra batteries anon? what aren't you telling us about your adventures.
it's an actual live action roleplay, from a trip go figure
it's a shitpost picture that gets posted in every "loadout" thread
ahhh, hah. okay that makes more sense
good to know you're ready for any trig problems you encounter
>this trail is closed
>pray tell, given a 90-45-45 triangle, if the base is 12', what is the hypotenuse?
>answer this and you may stay, otherwise i will call upon the other forest jannies to ensure you see justice this day!
Anon, why the blazes do you need two calculators? Why would you even need one!?
You must be oing some sketchy stuff out there.
fucking graphing calculators, this bro doing calculus in the woods lmao
>he doesn't bring a calculator in case inspiration hits and you get an idea for a new math function while tripping on magic shrooms out in the boonies
Two is one, one is none
That is a setup carefully crafted and optimized after years of PrepHoleings.
The longer I look at this the dumber it gets
I'm sure he just threw a bunch of random shit on a tarp to make a stupid image.......... surely
Cs450 saw for felling/bucking
Helko vario splitting axe
And a yardmax whatever for chipping.
Operation morel farm is going along swimmingly.
this and a katana-boy
seems like an odd place for that plate
the axe head has narrow cheeks and even on a proper stroke the top edges of the split log contact the handle there
it will wear with time so the plate protects the wood
that plate does nothing but reduce grip, it needs to be lowered its length once
What's the point of the plate, anyway? Protect the shaft if you miss?
in the summer: saw & maybe a hatchet
in the winter: boys axe and a saw
husqvarna 460 rancher.
Based I run the 460 rancher too. What size bar you run on yours? I still have the 24" on, but I think im gonna slap an 18" on it for doing my firewood and what not.
I run a 20 inch bar.
The 20" might be what I end up getting as 18s are sold putt everywhere around me. You do a lot of cutting or just occasional? I have to put up 10-15 cord a year for my house so my saws get a fair amount of use. I was using just a 37cc Ryobi and then went up to the rancher and it's like a dream, made my firewood cutting on hardwood like butter.
The 24" is cool and nice if I'm doing felling, but I just need something shorter and a little more manageable for firewood, but I'm glad it came with the larger bar on it for those occasions.
we heat exclusively with wood. All hardwood. Red, white oak and hickory. We are on 30 acres and a little over 20 is all forest so I cut a decent amount of dead fall and dead standing. The 460 is really nice. I watched a lot of videos on chain sharpening and they helped a lot. I use a Oregon chain also.
Nice. I wonder if anyone's got a 555 in here. I've been looking at them too for doing our firewood, same weight as the 460 but 20% more powerful, obviously it's more expensive though and getting into the "pro" saws meme.
24” here too
Are you referring to the folding saw itself or the brand folding saw? If the latter what brand is this
Do you like it?
I have a silky and a hatchet. Don't usually need to cut anything larger than that down kek.
Silky Sugoi 420.
I got a lot of other tree felling tools and equipment but that always goes camping with me. Great for dead stobs on conifer trunks.
thanks for the suggestion
That dude making camp saws with the carbide sawsall blades
just used one of these bad boys the other night for firewood. used to bringing the hatchet but damn she cut through wood like butter
It looks gay, though.
I have used it 5 days a week for 2 years. Lightweight and super portable. Uses standard 12" blades too. I just checked the price and holy shit it more than doubled. RIP
Is it still made in Canada?
Why is the trolling in this thread so low effort?
cold steel norse hawk and a menards $20 pruning handsaw that cuts better than my silky zubat
I use a buck saw that collapses completely in a tube.
The blade itself was shitty and i couldn't find a good one in the required length. So i bought a big blade, cut it in half, drilled holes in it and put a nail in the holes to secure it.
For better grip i put some hockeytape on the tube.
i really like it. At first it takes a little longer to set up, but when you're used to it's a great tool. The packsize is perfect.
That's pretty neat, do regular blades fit it or you got to get weird proprietary ones?
the original blades are 32cm/12.5 inches.
I don't like the original blades, they dull to fast, are clear coated and tend to get stuck.
I find it best to buy long blades and cut them in half like i mentioned in the previous post.
I use this kind of saw (Felco) for limbing things in the garden all the time. Works great. You are gonna make it, OP. Mine just isn't the folding variety, since I don't take it hiking.
Husqvarna 460 rancher
Sven Saw. I've tried the folders and for the times that I am actually cutting wood for a fire I just didn't find them efficient. Having a packable bow saw is really nice, breezes through stuff. At under a pound I actually will strap it to the backpack for an overnighter.
Saws are for fags and tourists, real men and grizzled
PrepHole pros use axes, the heavier and larger the better
Jokes aside saw fags are annoying to camp with
Ultimately if you arnt PrepHole or casual get a saw and timidly masturbate the logs untill they split. (I'm a kukri kinda guy, I'm 1/1097th nip btw)
they aren't mutually exclusive, axes and saws to different jobs, you carry both
Let me introduce you all to best girl
Who let you off of the cross!?
Myself. Was getting kinda sore up there, you know?
>MFW I still prefer my 440 magnum that is nearly 20 years old. To the 500i at work.
>MFW my boss prefers his 462, as does my coworker.
>We still always grab the 500i because it is a damn reliable and retard strong chainsaw.
No one likes it over their old favorite.
For me it’s the weight. Those couple pounds dropped from the 66 make a huge difference when it’s on your hip all day. Never used a 44. 36 and 46 are great saws but sometimes it’s just not enough on some of the big big climbing removals we get here, where a longer bar and having the ability to finish from one side is of a lot more value than say if you were logging. Going from 661 to 500i was a fucking godsend. Next step will be to get the 42” bar for it. I just got this thing a couple ago. I panicked at the saw shop and didn’t even ask about swapping the bars. What do you do anon, climb or log?
Residential tree removal, private forestry management, hazard removals, fire mitigation. We do a lot of shit from all arboriculture professions. Had to tie into a tree today to piece out another tree that would have snapped under my wieght. Forested suburban developments to 40 acres treed plots. In an a pre logged area at over 7000 feet. Ponderosa pine makes up like 90% of the tree population. Thick forest but it's average age is like 70 years. We got some old fuckers but not many, loggers took most of the straight ones, more big old co doms are around.
Not as many trees out here require a full size saw in the crown. Most climbs are handled with hand saws and top handles.
That's hecking cool anon, sounds like the real deal. I am all urban production tree care. Get a fair number of big tight quarters removals with no crane. Need the big saw for those chunks. Also get to prune lots of big old trees and the people I work for are usually eager to listen and care about the tree health so I'm thankful for that. Lot of sketchy work happening in this business.
Thanks, I'm also blessed with a lot of great customers to work for. 20+ years of training and I'm not even thirty. Get paid to play innawoods and possibly keep people safe in the event of a fire.
>First day I ran a chainsaw, the 440 I run to this day. My dad and I put out a grass fire on the side of the interstate. Watched the brush truck I called drive past us and come back 5 minutes later.
>My first experience with kick back pirouetted me, nearly touched my dad's hand with the bar tip. Thank God for kick brakes.
Was hooked on tree care at an early age.
And city tree work gets my respect, that shit is always a lot more diverse in species and way too fucking tight for my claustrophobic ass. And we get no respect, no respect from motorists!
>when the .44 magnum isnt good enough
Yes talking about chainsaws you dumbfuck.
It's a joke you fucking autist
Are you allowed to have assault hand saws ?
Gomboy 240 and a Fiskars X5.
Classic bow saws absolutely rape wood and are quite light relative to thier effectiveness. Big issue with how awkward they are to back though. I'm talkin those orange, steel tube frame bow saws, not the ones that collapse all nice. I find that those aren't as reliable.
