    I need a bigger saw, so I can cut the deadfall and donate it to folks on welfare who make more than me

    eta 150 yo oak, need a 24" bar, and I'll still have to cut around

    Then I can drive my property, with the deadfall gone

    zI can drag it out of the way, but sand will get in the bark, therefore dulling future chains and bars.

    We've already determined that I am completely irrational when it comes to chainsaws. Usually when I buy a tool, I buy the absolute BEST tool that I can afford. I have absolutely no compunction about spending $200 on a tablesaw blade. But for some reason, spending more than $150 on a whole chainsaw seems like highway robbery to me. (And if truth be told, I use my chainsaw more than my tablesaw most years; certainly I depend on it more for day to day life like heating the house.)

    That being said... Slip - That plastic framing square in the background of your picture of your nice clean, well used, awesome chainsaw is an absolute disgrace! With all the money you make, you can certainly afford a decent aluminum framing square! How can you expect to do decent work, working with a POS like that?!?

    REALLY?? Two Hundred Bucks for a battery?? What a rip-off.
