Re: 3 cup morning

wow, it takes me 3 cups just to get my butt out of the kitchen chair on a normal morning. Zero is pretty darned cold, we had 17 here. Just started freezing rain and sleet, so I've come back inside from puttering around, to see what I can get into in the house. I've got lots I should do, but nothing ...

Re: My last day of regular work is tomorrow

I turned 30 in October and I felt old. Now I'm feeling pretty young knowing I'll probably work till I die cause retirement will probably be a thing of the past in 30 more years... Pat, if I could give you some advice without offending you. When I was 22, my new wife and I (on advice of an older fri...

Re: Chain saw recommendations?

The Husqvarna dealer offered (and I did it) if I bought 3 quarts of Husqvarna’s pre-mixed ethanol-free gas when I bought the saw, the 2 year warranty would become a 4 year warranty. I will do my best to avoid ethanol gas, and the truoil or equal might help do that. Awfully expensive tho...

Re: Chain saw recommendations?

Ret, my problem with ethanol is that there are only 56 gas stations in the entire state of Maryland that sell any gas without ethanol! The closest one to me is in Hagerstown, about 30 minutes away by Interstate 70. I do plan to start going there for gas for my 2-stroke engines, but I couldn't do tha...

Re: Chain saw recommendations?

Well, I bought the Husqvarna 460 Rancher this afternoon. Dealer serviced it, filled it, and started/tested it before handing it over. We'll see, it is 3 lbs heavier than my 18" Stihl, but it is big enough to do what I need and I hope will run and last as well as the Stihl has. The Husqvarna was exac...

Re: My last day of regular work is tomorrow

Yes, great pictures! Good looking dogs and kids, and they're all great hunters from the looks of the harvest. Wow. Around here, upland bird hunters are few and far between, so I'm glad to see a family who is serious about it. Almost everybody here I know who hunts has one foot in the grave--no young...

Re: My last day of regular work is tomorrow

iasteve,

I don't see any picture! One post does have the word "image" but nothing shows up. It might be my settings, but am not sure...just wanted you to know I couldn't see any pics, or I'd probably recognize a GSP. :D

Re: Chain saw recommendations?

Anybody have experience with Husqvarna?

My local feed/farm place has one with 24” bar that’d work, and at $549 it is 60 bucks cheaper than the comparable Stihl. Thoughts?

Re: Anybody have contact with Salmoneye?

He has posted on the old KL board, though not as much as the old days. But it has been days since he last did even there. After our experiences lately with losing friends, I'm just getting a bit concerned that he's ok is all...

Re: Chain saw recommendations?

Thanks, Sid, it is worth a lot to me. One thing I've noticed is that--even with the name brands--there's about a 7-10% of folks who rate their chainsaws very low (1 star out of 5) because of some major problem(s). And many times you can read 1-star reviews of other products and see that the author i...
