Last spring I bought an 18" gas chain saw, and have used it just a few times So, I am certainly not an expert with it.
This is probably a bit on the silly question side, but I did see the use of a chain saw in cutting up ice blocks, so I guess they do have a bit of versatility.
Anyway, I have to bury a run of about 40 feet of very small diameter coax cable in my backyard. Probably 6 inches deep, or so, would do it. Really don't want to rent a "Ditchwitch".
As the slit I will have to cut in the soil is so thin and relatively shallow, I was wondering about the practicality of just using the chainsaw by dragging it over and thru the soil.
Bet it would do a really quick and fine job (maybe).
Assuming no rocks, is this safe ?
Would it hurt the blade or saw ? (doubt that the soil is any more or less abrasive than wood chips), but...?)
Any thoughts on ?
