    60" is no joke. Very cool Mike!

    It’s a lot like real work. When the saw is eye level and you still have to go to the other side to finish the cut with a 42”. Longest bar I have any more is the 34”. If I can’t get it with that then we’ll noodle or just let it rot

    Runs great with 60" but 61" would be way too much for that saw.

    Soft Springs.

    That’s the only Meh for me.

    I wish it had Springs stuff as a 2 ton Studebaker.

    The rest is golden.

    Gotta be some kind of fix for that Heath. I thought they made springs in different flexes? Soft, medium and stiff???

    Sorry about your luck, but there is already a saw named Popcorn owned by the farmer of lead. You'll have to go with Jiffy or Orville:D

    That’s one of the meh for me too. Stiffer springs /better filter seal would be simple for stihl to do as a upgrade to the saw. Maybe a stronger av limiter pocket too.

    Just thinking outside the box here. Could one adapt the Hooskie springs to the Stihl?
    Should be good for a tenth in the cut, no?

    You need black locust around here for ground contact. Heart wood only.
    Not any hedge or orange around here.

    @Redbull661 Tightening your clutch again? Mine was a *b-word to get off after running that 40 full comp in big pin oaks.

    Ported chainsaws are just as silly today as they were last year.

    This one be the Southern R&D Popcorn variety.

    Rodidney’s is more Transcendental in the Mathematical terms.

    You know, it made no sense.
