    Just waiting on the last video to upload to YouTube. It’s 9 minutes long so I should have them up in about 10 minutes. This was an extremely fun day, I learned a lot

    I had to sneak a look at the video! That 254xp looked good!

    FYI, I bet on the 254xp before the video was uploaded. Lol

    Round 1, 7.5” speed cuts. We all ran our own saws and each took turns running each others as depicted in the video. We all ran each others saws right on average. I think y’all will be surprised by the end results...I was.

    Round 2 was power proving ground. 15” wood, full bar length cuts. We rotated saw operation again where annotated in the video. The 55 really showed up with the fastest single cut by .3 seconds, but in averages the 254 was 3 seconds faster. So what’s the winner of round 2 gents? The 55 is the MVP for sure. And it proved I was the best operator LOL!

    Still waiting for the damn video to be playable on YouTube . Might be a while

    The 550 did make an appearance but not for the competition. I think Josh is planning to upload the 550 and the 242 also.
