Chainsaw? Feh!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:46 pm

I have often said that I refuse to own a chainsaw, because I prefer not to known as “Stumpy.” I do, however, harbor a certain fascination with bigass machines. I would actually like to play with this one, but all animal life would be well advised to give me lots of room.

Oh, and I doubt that my buddy GuyK could pick one of these units up at a local garage sale.

Thanks to Brian, the Air Force Vet.


  1. DAMN! JAMES LEWIS! Get away from that wheel barrow you don’t know nothin about no machinery!

    That thing is gonna put a lot of rednecks in the food stamp line.

  2. Fells, debarks, cuts to length, and stacks the log in seconds. Plus it keeps you in the nice comfortable cab away from the sharp parts. What’s not to like?

    Probably can clear an acre of plantation pines in a day’s work.

  3. That thing would be a hoot to run.
    Now if it would just quarter it…

  4. Have had the chance to operate a couple of these. Several different types around, Barko, Timbco, Mobark, Cat,etc. Not too bad once you get the hang of it. Brings something to mind. Was attending a forestry seminar and spotted an interesting tee shirt on a foresty student. Had a color print of our beloved earth on the front and in bold print above the print were the words EARTH FIRST! Below the print in somewhat smaller letters was (we’ll log the other planets later). Cool.

  5. Oh yeah? I can do exactly what that machine does, but better, and with my bare hands…and with people instead of trees.

  6. Jimbo, I was thinking you might want to take something like that down to the New Jersey Legislature with a short stop at the governors mansion.

  7. That’s kinda messed up, Erica. You strip folks nekkid, and then cut their wood?

  9. Wow – my Deeres won’t do that. I suppose that I could just whack the trees. Yeah, you can take the girl out of Queens, but. . .
