    There are two really good German brands, Webasto and Eberspńcher. Having experience with both, I must say I prefer Webasto. Their set up is simply more logical, at least to my brain. Quality wise I've never had reason to doubt they are the same level.

    I knew this would turn your crank. But tell me this. Is it untrue? Am I simply talking bullshit, because , according to you, I hate America or did you guys go the same way as the British motorcycle industry. Notice BTW, that if I bring up the decline of said motorcycle industry, brought on mostly by sheer stupidity and unwillingness to change things, because by god, British buildt is better and they'll just have to understand that, while meanwhile Honda put out the CB750, and blew them off the map.................................none of our British members get offended. Or come to think of it, maybe it is just the stiff upper lip thing, and they all sit at home with their cups of tea and steam literally coming out of their ears.

    I didn't expect this to ever happen..................................ever! Got me fair and square:lol: I have a vertical splitter. It is faster to just rip the chunks about half way down, then use a maul on them. I usually split most of my wood by hand. If you know how, it is faster. But not when you have Leukemia and your blood count is way low. First year I'm doing it all with the splitter. Swinging the maul really takes it out of me.

    Really? I thought I made it clear. I FRIGGING LOVE IT! Best saw I ever run, bar none. Used it for firewood again today. At one time, it had been sitting for almost 2 hours, and just to test it, I pulled the handle without priming it first. Had to pull twice, then we were up and running. Some of the logs I have are too heavy for me to lift 20" sections on the splitter, so I simply rip them. That is a good way to put a saw to the test, full bar length ripping cuts. This thing just never bogs down. It is uncanny. I still want to take it logging, Mick. All this cookie cutting is fine, but it is how it handles the real stuff that matters to me. That is probably what you see as " Fence sitting". Ask me again next thursday, when I've put in a couple of days in the woods with it. I'm pretty sure, the answer will be the same. I am NOT giving this demo saw back to the dealer.

    That is your patriotism running away with you. As early as the late 60es, Toyota was putting out cars that were way more dependable than what came from Detroit. You didn't teach the Japanese anything about quality, they figured that out by themselves. How come there are no US made pro saws on the market today. Seeing as how you make such quality products.

    "Wow those are awesome!!!! I might look into that! About how much do they want for one? " Not really. Probably way less over your way, seems to be that way with most things. I paid the equivalent of 4 grand for mine. It has a timer, that will allow you to set it to start in the morning, so you come out to a warm car, same for afternoon, when you are going home. It has 4 settings, so when we are logging and eat at fixed times, the truck is always warm for us. Also, you can call it up by phone and change the setting or start it up. When we are working a big tree and lunch is drawing near, someone on the ground will either walk to the truck and turn it on manually or if the truck is parked far away, call it. Then we have a warm place to sit and eat. Never cold starting your engine makes it last a lot longer. I got 500,000 kilometers out of my last VW truck before rust ate it up. Expensive, yes, but once you've had one, there is no going back.

    Yep. Sure footed, hardy and no more stubborn that the Irish cob, we have now. Great animals. I rode them quite a bit in Idaho and used them as pack animals, too. Totally new experience for me, you hardly see them in my end of the world.

    I've never had to take one of our saws to the dealer for a tune up. NEVER. With 5 guys runnings saws 8 hour a day for 7 months last year. Those things just work! Don't try to let the fact that the Swedes apparently can't get it working, rub off on the Germans.

    Touch the teeth and leave the rakers a couple times and it helps. Or have some Picco made for it.

    I did. I think it was Hannibal Lecter, who , as a hobby, collected newspaper clippings of churches falling down or burning, killing the people worshipping. Oh, the irony.

    Well, predictable moral position or not, I'm still wondering why the owner didn't turn the fire off. Isn't that sort of what the whole thing is about. So your superb achievement is an obscene statement to some of us. You'll have to live with that, I think.

    I'm with Jim on that one. The huge cathedrals are obscene buildings, simply made to remind us all of the power of the (whatever) church. We have one in Roskilde, my second closest city https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roskilde_Cathedral Cunningly placed on top of a hill, so no matter what side you approach the city from, you get the message. Apparently the owner wasn't awake when that burned in the late 70es. Funny thing is, they have recently buildt a powerplant in Roskilde and turned it into an architectural masterpiece. Half the people in the city hate it, because it is bigger than the cathedral. Makes for some good discussions. It is lit up from within, in different colors. For saint Patrick's day, it goes green. When that thing goes in dark red mode, it looks like something from Mordor. I love it. https://www.google.dk/search?q=energit%C3%A5rnet&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjUiuT1ktXhAhVomYsKHTI3AB8Q_AUIDigB&biw=1760&bih=851
