Wow, does this cut wood or what

Post by rodp » 15 Jul 2017, 11:58

Felled an old Silver Birch in the garden a while back using a diy McCulloch chainsaw and a knackered Husky 45 (crank seals gone so runs on, gets hot and partialy seizes now and again :crazy: ). No way were they going to cut up the trunk and limbs, so took a chance on an old Husky 181se that was supposed to have led a sheltered life. Fired it up today and boy does this cut :thumbup: Trunk's app 2' across so the 20" bar goes across if positioned correctly.

One happy little lumberjack now :lol:

Oooh thats a classic big boy falling saw. 20" bar should be no problem for that. They will have put 36"ers on it back in be day
if its got a cast ally top cover it could well be the same age as me
when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

Do you want any more old Husqvarna chainsaws Rod :?: :idea: :think: there was a 266 with heated handle in a car boot sale this morning, think that it was the SE model, probably could have bought it for £35.00 i'sh. Compression was not brilliant but it was complete but looking dirty and uncared for :?: The owner wanted £50.00 as his starting price :?:
Same guy is bringing me some Britool spanners next week, can get it for you if it is still available :?:

Thanks
Phil
