Too quiet in here, how bout some noisy saw videos?
« on: November 03, 2021, 09:26:18 PM »
Been on a quest to learn to sharpen to cut decades dead desert hardened eucalyptus. I got some discontinued oregon Duracut DPX (semi chisel). 36” on 3120/395. Seemed slow and no bite out of the box, so I took the rakers down, not much help. Did seem to hold an edge but every log is different in dirt amount. Sooooo…I put some hook in the cutters with my secondhand stihl USG and a CBN wheel. I took it out and cut a log up today after work with the 395. Still 90 here, can’t wait for it to cool off the rest of the way. Should have by Halloween. Unfortunately, by the time it does, the time will change, and it will be dark after work. Anyway…the challenge with the hardened wood is getting enough bite but but not too much. Not enough and the chain skims and the saw screams. Too much, and Clutch stall…which is what I got today. If I got the feed just right, boy howdy the ported 395 will cut, but the slightest bit too much pressure and she’d stall. I didn’t take any video today but here are some previous…and you can wander around my other videos if you’re weird and think chainsaws are cool.


28” full comp full chisel…not the best chain for this but it’s what I had. Also a little on the aggressive side.


Duracut before putting hook in it



3120 ported makes almost anything cut…I call it Thor’s hammer.

Square did well, but slow to re sharpen which needs done often.



42” .404 raisman semi chisel IIRC.

Aussies say and I agree .404 and big cubes are the best when the wood gets big.

I thought my generously MM’s 372xt would be disturbing to the neighbors, but I have never seemed to draw any negative attention from them. But then again, sometimes my neighbors only let stuff like that fester inside of them. I take stuff like that well! Besides, (like I told a boss once) if I don’t know that I do something wrong, I CAN’T FIX IT! But they sure do seem to like it when I’ll come and cut something up for them.

Those Lombard 4.2 cubic inch engines ,a Homelite XL-12 take off are noisy .I have one to top that though .McCulloch 6-10 which is 70 cc ,modified with a curved bottom muffler ,gutted .That one makes dogs howl .Ear plugs or muffs are mandatory to say the least .

@Al_Smith I got a 797 to run, between the two of us we can wake the dead! I can't imagine running that all day. WHAT?

I've got some large saws too The novelty of those redwood slayers are  rather short lived after about half an hour .None of mine ,2 Mac 125's, one Homelite 2100S ,two Partner P100's and one 2100 Husqvarna have altered exhausts so they are not that loud .They are rather heavy though .

Dirty hard eucalypt  = .404 semi chisel / file at 35° and 10° of down. Or tungsten carbide chain. Either way you want a big saw to swing it and one thing I know for sure is a 395 will do better than a MS661... the torque curve is better at lugging down and dirty hard eucs are all about the lugging down with a half blunt chain, not screaming away with a sharp one

I use the .404 myself, definitely a faster cutter than the T/C. I'm not doing it for a living anymore but I've worked with guys who run T/C and while I'd be stopped sharpening you could hear trees hitting the ground in the distance. They carry a couple spare loops and put more tons down a day.

Back when I used to go through a file a day, chain every second day, bar life maybe a week to 10 days.
The quickest way to make a million dollars with a sawmill is to start with two million.

@sablatnic that’s a BIG saw right there. I don’t know if I could hang onto it for more than a couple of minutes :D Just kidding. Every job has a tool, every tool has its particular job ;) You chose well. 👍
