I wonder if you will find anything big enough that the 455 won't handle . From what I saw when I was in Anchor Point a 24 in butt was a big tree . Gearbox
A bunch of chainsaws a BT6870 processer , TC 5 International track skidder and not near enough time

Ok, some one get me a cell number that can upload pics.  I can snap one with my cell phone.  As for the 455 not being big enough was not my concern, but not lasting as long that is why I bought a medium and large pro series saw.

I don't have a clue how to post pictures but I did manage to put them in my gallery.  You can click on my profile and see them there.  The little fella holding the saw is my grandson.  He says he's gonna be a mountain man like his pops.

Is the 395 an XPG? Looks like it in the photo. Not sure if you are aware but that would have heated handles as well.  :)

Welcome to the Forestry Forum, Coastal Gun.  Your plans are what I always wanted to do.  I have visited Alaska but never came all of the way back home.  Enjoy.

That's a great picture :) I wish my 395 had heated handles like yours.

Hey Magic Man,  I has taken me almost 28 years to convince my wife to move to Alaska.  I started when we were dating and was persistent.  She finally told me in December that if I still wanted to go, lets do it.  I am buying enough land to build my cabin, pole bard, guest house, both of my daughters homes, and now more family wants to come.  Looks like I might not be retiring after all.  My woodmizer LT40HD G26 will be delivered to Mr. Parker Ritgers at the Woodmizer dealership in Anchorage for me in May this year.  Going in June to finalize the land purchase.  I got tired of working for a living and decided to LIVE.  Liquidating my business and retiring from my hospital day job.  Of course my business is in my blood so I am sure I will be starting back up after I get my home built.

Thanks for all the help with the saws and the welcomes to the forum.

Yes, it does have the heated handle.

That is as it should be up there (and here). Hopefully the 562 is an xpg as well?

Apart from that, just make sure you read the technical part of the manuals, and do normal maintenance. Keep the chains sharp!   ;D
