As the years have gone by I like many others fold into then out of the fads defined by our peers online. Since this saw thing is as much a hobby as anything, things that make it more interesting and reasons to celebrate within the community are the focus. Saw Mods and GTG's derived from motorsports & racing are an out growth of that. A way to both enhance and interact all wrapped up in one. I certainly have enjoyed all of that from modding saws to the informal races and comraderies developed as a result over time. THEN time passes. The work load increases if any thing....and the saw thing divides into to classes of thought....task oriented, fun oriented. Priorities shift. And I decided to do a self reflection a while back and move back to the farm and task oriented thought process. AND from that perspective did a comparison between my "new 4 me" this year 565 and my favorite 372 based saws, an OPINION developed after a Spring & Summer's Use....It's all Vic C's and Bob's fault.

( This fall getting back to "fun" with my Oldie but Goldie's, Husqvarna L65/77's and Jonsereds with a Homie xl925 build to happen )

  I don't seem to have start talking about chainsaws to start and argument. All I have to do is post any little, entirely honest (but generally correct) comment about women and the gentler sex here on the FF take it from there. :D

  Good luck on your saw project.

And you’re an Auburn fan.  That would start an argument in a commune full of pot smoking, Dorito munching, beatniks.  

I like the saying, “two schools of thought, task oriented or fun oriented.”  I hadn’t heard that one before.

YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it won’t roll, its not a log; it’s still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, they’re burned, and you can’t fix them.  So don’t burn the cookies.

Sawing is fun for the first couple hundred boards.

Watching the vid reminded me I did a comparo experiment a while back. Two big pine spars about 40” at the base. I felled one with the 3120 42” and one with the Dolmar 6100 24”. Not surprisingly, the big saw was a lot to swing around but easier to line up the cuts and no monkeying around. The 6100 is a lot easier to maneuver but you gotta do it a lot and be good at lining up cuts. 

When it came time to buck into firewood it was the same thing…I prefer the bigger saw and bar for that. If I was ever to be felling a lot I suppose I would run a bar a bit on the long side, just enough power for it, and maybe skip chain. 

For those two trees for example, ported 2166 with a 36” bar would probably have been ideal, or the 395, but they were at Kevin Lavanway’s getting more horsetorques installed.

I bought a 565 to try but just didn’t find it too exciting. So I sold it.
Prefer the 2165/71’s. Since Husqvarna mothballed Jonsered I’ve been buying Stihl. It will be a long tim before I buy an oranges saw, unless it’s an echo!
