    Stihl MS201

    X2 jomoco. Reg did sum it up nicely. It can be hard to explain why a powerful chainsaw is important in some situations. "pull of gravity" & "downright dangerous" yep.

    Stihl MS201

    Yes, the 201 is good when modified. I had Snelling in Ohio do mine. Muffler mod, ignition advance & unlimited adjusters. My new complaint is the cheap AV mount on the lower handle. Cheap little spring - I bent it in an Apple tree...

    Morbark 2060d

    Picked up my 2005 Woodsman 18X from mechanic today... The new clutch did not go as easy as hoped. The spindle / shaft was damaged. Sent to machine shop to weld, patch, and balance. $1,500 parts - $1,500 labor. A well spent $3k but - ouch! Back to work!

    Who hangs their chainsaw from a caritool?

    Paddle biner here... Kong with the name scratched off! I do not use a lanyard to attach a saw to myself. Scares me. I have only dropped one saw in 12 years. Old husky 335. I may have thrown it! :)

    will a chainsaw cut through a steel core lanyard?

    X2 what he said. Always double tied in when cutting. Almost always... I too have "accidentally" hit my steel core with a 200T and also heard and felt it. I can not imagine removing trees with a rope lanyard. That's what I use for a trim job.
