    Did someone say noodles?



    The 2188 clogged a lot too. I switched to the small dual dogs with built-in catcher, and removed the chip deflector from the back of the clutch cover. Helped a lot.

    Anyone do anything creative with your noodles? I put mine under my lean to and either burn them in the wood boiler or my wife uses them for garden bedding.

    I noodle everything big, I haven’t used a splitter in years. I predominately use my 71’s on the real big stuff other wise I’ve been using my 2260 a lot. Both work really well.
    All of my noodles get raked up and put into a wagon and then get used for bedding in my wife’s horse stalls

    I also use what ever saw i have. Usually have a 3 saw plan with me at any given time. Usually a 40-50 a 60 and a 70+. My never clogg saw is a poulan 306a with no clutch cover just a aluminum strip to hold the bar on cut to a vee so its sorta like a single spike. My favorite noodler is my echo/craftsman 4.2vl with a 24 and the same aluminum plate off the 306a. That bad boy dont care one bit and never slows down after i ported it. That saw had very weird numbers and even weirder durations. But it turned out very well gaining and holding rpm much better then stock. Now i really seem to like my newest toy the 372xpw i reciently got just gotta buy a bigger bar then the 18 it came with. Cracks me up when people put little bitty bars on a big powerhead like a 372
    I would never carry around a large saw like that with a little bitty bar on it. Fun yes but too heavy to justify the speed over my others. Im now thinking of getting a regular 372 topend kit from spike to try out and save the xpw oddball kit for a rainy day. I dont like how expensive tge slugs are for those topends. Hell i can buy 2 maybe 3 oe pistons for 1 of the xpws.

    I agree, my 53’s are my 20” saws, my 60 is my 24” and the 71’s are 28” and up till I get another big saw built but I don’t really need one

    Me too.
    I keep two 55 gallon barrels full for fire starter, rest in coup. I use regular saw chip in there too. Makes for clean eggs.

    White birch is softer than maple or oak. Black birch is much harder.
