When i was 4, I was taught to operate a walk-behind. And to mow the lawn. Not cut the grass.
Kid's gotta know his limitations.

A camo chainsaw? My Husqvarna 345 is bright orange and I manage to lose sight of it in the woods all the time. If I had a camo saw I might as well throw it off a bridge to save time:rolleyes:

Doug

It just a cheap saw for real...
As blind I am.. I don't know how many times I tripped over it..

Just to be clear here, did you mow the lawn, or ahem, "mow the lawn"?

I'd forgotten about your eyesight. That puts a pretty funny picture in my head- A blind guy crashing through the woods, smashing into trees looking for a camoflauge chainsaw that's parked right at his feet:D

Doug

There ya go...:D right on the button...
What really have happened..I wasn't looking fer it... It was lying in pile of dried leaves near the stump..
I were carrying a big armload of firewood, and came about 'round the that thar stump... caught my foot in its handlebar... firewood went that-a-way and I went this way.. What a "big AIR time" too...

To anyone that witness this... Would think I was trying to juggle some firewood, holding a chainsaw with one foot while standing on the other foot..

Did you drop the trees across the drive, or along the drive?

Dropped them, bucked them to firewood length and hauled them away.

Bought a new Husquvarna chain saw last week, my old Chinese cheapie has refused to start any longer, given up the task, I thought. So I go to get the new one out first time and the oldies lying there and I wonder....................... Started first pull and has gone like a train since. :mad::eek::confused:

But you are keeping the Husky, right? I mean, it's a tool, and although we buy tools so that we can find the ones we lost, we never return them unless they're broken. It's a man-code rule. Number 38 I think.

Doug

Within the next year, I'll be going from two houses down to one. That'll mean lots of duplicate tools. Do I dare break man-code rule 38 and have a garage sale?

I do have many old and broken tools, including an old chainsaw. They just sit on a bench, waiting for judgement day.

methinks Doug has a large print copy of the man rules...

The only acceptable way to dispose of duplicate tools is to give them to your kids(the inferior of the two goes, you keep the good one)(Rule #56). The best option for duplicate tools however, is to put an addition on your shop so you have room to keep them. Building additions requires the purchase of more tools (Rule #17).

DougCan you send me a framed copy I can mount somewhere prominent?

Yeah, Doug - we MUST have a copy of the rules...

I've got a little 16" Husky limbing saw that's bright orange and I can lose that thing in the leaves - no problem.

My next door neighbor needed a tree cut up that he lost to ice last winter. I sharpened the saw, cut it into a few pieces and hauled it away - was a small, spindly cherry, maybe 5" at the stump and 20 odd feet tall. Took longer to sharpen the saw than to do the work.

The following Tuesday evening the neighbor shows up with a six-pack of Bass ale and another of Oaked Arrogant Bastard ale.

"Need any more trees cut?" :D

Say, if Katherine didn't know the trees were cut, how could she know to bring you a "restorative beverage" after the work was done?
