    Some people may wonder why I would cut and split firewood in the middle of winter. The leaves are off the trees and the weather is cool. What better time to cut some small oak trees, split them and put the firewood up. I do not have a fireplace. I hope to have one in a few years, but that is...

    He is getting up in years. A standard gas chain saw is problematic with him being able to start them. He has a Craftsman gas and a Stihl gas, but... He has an electric 'alligator' saw, which he loves, for limbing, and for up to four inch. Such holds the work, so he does not have to 'one...

    We've used a 16" McCullough chain saw for years. Its great. Not too heavy so easy to handle, and cuts branches and most logs without stress to equipment or the user. We use a lot of wood easy year, and wouldn't want to work without this. What are the rest of you using?

    Hey just a heads up, I just got off the phone with Cary Shepard. He is a Training Specialist for Husqvarna.
