    I've heard Lyme is common in CT. If I got Lyme for every tick bite, I'd have gotten it 100 times. I've heard of some one developing some sort of alchohol intolerance/allergy or something from Lyme.

    There's always the risk. Brand new, something could have been made wrong or not checked properly and fail, too old and it can of course fail, but partially used could have been abused too, and so could fail.

    That extra bumper gets in the way of sharpening. I had to use a flat file vertically on the middle bumper to get a round file to fit. The saw Mitch modified for me: <iframe width="704" height="396" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/W2xGVLIgvJM" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    None, and no attachment point for any. I guess one could cut off the mount tabs on the 2511's spike bumper, and prep the surfaces well and use lots of JB weld to hold it on.

    Do you refer to the protrusions on the trunk as trees or branches? You could log the branches off that! A vertical timber forest...efficient

    Nutball started a thread Echo 271t in The Trading Post
    $160 shipped I've had it since April 2015. Starts easy and runs good. The 14" bar and chain has only 1 tank of gas of use. It has some cracks in the plastic as shown, but they've been there ever since the first day I used the saw when it was new. I think it still has plenty of life left in it, I just don't use it as much. Spark plug is good. Compression is still good, it's been run on both 50:1 and 40:1 much of its life. As you can see it's getting time for a new sprocket and bearing after using up this chain and maybe another, then it should be converted to 14" Stihl 1/4 .043 for smoother and quicker cutting. A 1/4 pitch sprocket for an Echo 280 would probably fit if you can find one. Muffler modded. 105-114dB at operator's ear. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/pR4622xzt-k" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Glad you like it! I put my 271t up for sale a week ago. It's just so heavy and slow in comparison, with smaller gas caps, and a bulging muffler cover, I just don't care to use it much anymore.

    Hover flies. Supposedly flies and not stinging bees, but we call them sweat bees around here, and they've been known to have an annoying little sting when caught under clothing. Check out the tiny bug at the bottom right of the pic below This one is popping its neck

    Nutball replied to a thread Sick tree? in Tree Care and Health
    I don't think I've ever seen one overcome a branch, that gets plenty of sun, dying back. And they don't do a good job at all of filling in with new branches where bare spots are.

    Likely sap. Wood peckers might be one cause, also dripping pine cones over time, wind damaged branches, old wounds can ooze for a long time. Maybe boring insects. Fun fact: you can collect the white dry sap to use as incense when placed on hot charcoal.
