Golly. I need to go lay down. I saw one of those saws on TV one time on a
logging show. It made such an impression on my mind that I actually
remembered it. But I must have been in an altered state of consciousness,
as you say there is no such thing.
I used to believe in the Statue of Liberty. But one day, during a deep
session in analytical thinking, I reasoned that since I personally, me, had
never personally seen the Statue of Liberty that it does not exist, and must
have been a recreation in some Hollywood backlot. Same with Stonehenge and
the Taj Majal.
I threw away all my National Geographics, and now my life is MUCH simpler.
If I don't see it, it doesn't exist, and people who say these things do
exist have some sinister hidden agenda that I must protect myself from.
I also deleted from my memory banks those old double engine dragsters and
drag bikes that had two engines. Now that you have cleared that up in my
mind, I know that they were some drug and alcohol induced hallucination,
and my mind is much clearer without that information.
I used to reason that if the two engines did not perform exactly the same,
the slower one would slow down the faster one, or that the faster one would
make the slower one go faster. And if they DID actually run at a very close
speed, that the power would be increased dramatically. I also cleared from
my soft hard drive all the thousands of times I have seen machinery with
multiple engines. Oh, dopey me. What WAS I thinking, and what DID I see?
Your mind must be VERY clear. I want to be like you some day.

I've been meaning to post about my Husqvarna. It hasn't been used a
lot but the last couple of years, when I try to use it I have to
completely purge any old gas from it's system (gas tank, carborator)
and mix up a new fresh batch of gas to get it to start. It won't even
run on a gas mixture that was fresh the previous day.
I'va had a mccullough for about 30 years. Bought under the mongomery
ward label. Been through a bunch of chains and a whole bunch of
trees. Got no complaints but don't know how well their recent ones
are. You're not going to avoid having to adjust the chain. Chains
stretch. Spend the extra to get a little bigger one than you think
you need. You won't regret a little extra power.
??? Care to expand on that? Put switch on choke, pull 3 or 4 times,
take choke off, pull 1 or 2 - running. Exactly the same as every
other brand I have ran over the past 30 years. Mac/Homey/Poulan/Stihl/

When you run it as few times as I do, by the next year the formula to
start it has been forgotten. I want to flip a switch and start it.
That sucks! Honestly, my 10 or so year old crapsman most always starts
in 1 or 2 pulls, even with 6 month old gasoline. (A lot more when I
forget to turn it on and pull the choke!) I must admit it's been a very
reliable piece of crap!
Look at Echo, their new motors have the longest ratings of engine
life, better than Sthil, and less maintenance by those I see using
them and my dealer that also sells Sthil but recommends Echo, My Sthil
has been repaired none of my Echos have needed repairs, this year I
will buy a few more Echos.
It is all about the purpose (intended use). McCulluch's and Echo's
are great, durable, thrash 'n' throw saws for short duration use and
construction sites. The higher end *Logging* saws are the ticket if
you intend to do a lot of all day cutting where pure balls and speed
of cut are a blessing (both falling and bucking).
A 36 inch, high end saw is a bit much for occasional limb cutting
and such, but you'll love it when you are plowing through an area
and can fell a 12" dia. tree in 30 seconds, then limb the thing
without much bending over, then come back and cut to length in
20 second cuts.
