    Let the dealer handle them. I don't mess with saws. I have a good dealer who gives us a good price for repairs. It makes better money sense for me to do what I'm good at ( killing trees) than what I'm not.

    No snow here either. This used to be the coldest time of winter and today was 40 dergees outside. Winter is a thing of the past, here. At least until the Polar Vortex breaks, that is predicted to chill us down some.

    stig replied to a thread Stihl MS462 in Chainsaws!
    Put a little silicone grease on those corner screws. I've only found one thing wrong with it so far and we have used them over 6 months in logging so that is about 1000 hours on each. The outside dogs are two weak for logging, we've broken several. But they don't cost much to replace and I think they'll hold up better for arb work.

    That is where Alkylate fuel really shines. It never goes bad. Grab a saw that has been sitting for a year, shake it and pull the starter handle........off you go!

    We got out about 9:30.4wd towing dingo and I dropped everyone into their respective places. Katy eventually got the fwd Nissan out. Never saw a plow :lol: Highways were sanded though. Long line to get home last night soon as you got 3000 feet. Most folks ignored the warning about chaining up and got stuck across the better part of 4 lanes right before our street.

    Check on Amazon. Not too bad. About 150.00 and change US$. The SMH10. Guessing that is what you had. Buying pairs saves a little and you have a back up.

    Sean, in my outfit there is no difference between employees and owners when it comes to saws. We all run the best money can buy. Want somebody to make money for you in logging. Give him/her the tools to do so. Apprentices are a different thing. They are notoriously hard on saws, so they get used ones. Which is why, giving our present one a new MS462 was our way of saying that we feel he is doing good.

    What is a mid range saw to you, Magnus. Coming from primarily hardwood logging, a 70 cc is mid range to me. Those are the ones we put the hours on. The MS880 will most likely outlast me unless I drop a tree on it. That one hangs in the shop and only comes out when we need some serious grunt. The picture is the last cuts made by the 661, before I drove home and got the 880 out of the shop ( 3 hours drive and well worth it, as we had a bunch of trees like that to fell)

    NO WAY I'd drink that shit regularly. It is simply an emergency thing. What happened was that Richard and I did a friday after work winter run down to Munich to pick up a motorcycle for me. Logging in bad weather for 8 hours and then driving about 1100 Km in the dark. The stupidity of youth, right! At age 58. Go figure. I started nodding off and Richard, knowing I can't handle caffeine, suggested I drink a couple of cans of Red Bull. First time I ever tried that stuff. He later told me that we could have switched the headlights off, my eyes were that bright!

    2 years of full time logging is a good figure. Last year we cut for 7 months, 8 hours a day. I DON'T work on saws. I can make way better money per hour by running them. When they start to fail, we dump them with no regrets. Compared to the rest of the costs, saws are not expensive. Last year, when we switched from MS441 to MS 462 and turned from MS260 to MS241, we bought 10 saws. But at the same time we used 3000 liter of alkylate fuel at 3.40$ a liter and 600 liters of chain lube at 3.9$ a liter. Add the chains and bars and the saws will seem like a small amount. Normally we don't spend near that much on saws, changing over from two models to new ones brought it up so high. Plus of course the one idiot who had one stolen and parked a large Beech tree on another one.

    I keep a can of Mønster energy drink in the truck for when I start nodding off. Since I don't normally drink coffee, so am unaccustomed to caffeine, that'll wake me up, pronto! After we switched our modus operandi to " Has chainsaw, will travel!", I typically spend 2½ hours on the road, every day.

    When you are on your feet all day, the proper boots just makes life so much better. That is why I wear caulks for logging. Far as I know, I was the first to do so in Denmark. Now we are 3 and soon 5. But they have all been turned on to caulks by me. Amazing how working in different countries can change the way you do things.

    You'll find some of the same in the "Bo", the 6 foot staff of Okinawa/Japan, that I have trained with for the last 45 years. What I liked about the video, apart from the brilliance of the performers, is the complete lack of "Hollywood" moves . They just show the basics of the craft, nothing fancy that looks good but doesn't work. It'll be interesting to hear Gary's take on it.

    We have the same thing here, in the woods. Because mechanical harvesters have mostly killed off the fallers, there has been a huge loss of skills. Now we have a twofold problem. Of the young kids who want to become fallers, most have NO idea of the hardships it entails. That is why we've lost 2 apprentices in the last year. Those who do, cannot find a place to apprentice, since old, knowledgeable fallers are getting scarce as hen's teeth. The one, we have left, seems to know what it is about, and be willing to work for it. His well used 441 started pulling the chain by idling too fast again today, so we sent him to the repair shop/dealer. Then I called the dealer and told him to make a new 462 ready and to tell the kid, that we felt he had shown the skills necessary, to be given a new saw. I imagine that quite made his day.
