   With that big saw i hope you bought at least some safty gear to go with it. How long of a blade did you get and is it easy to handle.

24 inch bar on the 066, though it will take up to a 36.  I needed something larger than my 038 for felling and a larger pine job I have next week.  I have protective shirt, pants, gloves, hardhat with screen and ear protection.  Have had that stuff since 88.

Get at least one spare rim retainer clip to keep on hand, some locktite and the proper torx wrench to tighten up the odd loose screw.
The 066 is a nice saw.

Woodmills, welcome to the 066 club. ;)  They are a very nice saw.  I use a 36" bar on mine.  I have used mine to rip some 6' Sequoia logs I had last year.  It sure makes for the long curly shavings.  8)

G'day James,

Had an 066 once, bought it 3rd hand.  Was a sad day when it finally gave in to old age and over use!  Great saw.
Cheers
Charlie

been using the 066 the last few days on some large pine beastly logs.  Man that thing can really cut some wood.  I tried some ripping just to see,  and WOW!

We've gotten a lot of use out of 066's.  Definitely great saws.  Got nearly 3 million board foot of timber out of my favorite, and then some jerk stole it out of the back of my brother's truck out in the middle of a field a half mile off of the road next to the patch of timber we were dragging out.  Boy I missed that saw, but I still hoped it would blow up on him.  :'(:(
