    Nice Dave. You use any other saws for a comparison cut?

    Not same bar same chain.
    Here’s an 064 with a small compression bump.

    Here’s a stock 7910 other than unlimited ignition.

    I’m surprised that 064 didn’t walk away from the 7910. They looked pretty comparable. Maybe in bigger wood it “wood” be a different story lol.

    They are both basically stock
    With the advantage going to Dolly with the updated crank.

    How do you sleep at night doing saws compares without using the same bar and chain?

    That is the sound I am used to from mine!
    Deep low grunt, not a high pitched scream.

    Is cotton wood much softer than ash?
    From the videos I'd say yes, but I am not familiar to those two wood species.

    I will have some play time with my Dolmar's in large beech, just waiting for the acquaintance to give me a call.

    Cottonwood is much softer than ash. Grows like a weed around here. Smaller stuff cuts fast, larger wood loads up the chain and can bind. Very stringy. Weighs a ton wet but dries up light like a sponge.
