    Been putting off buying that cutoff tool and I'm officially buying one now lol. It'll be a perfect compliment to my new M18 chainsaw. (which doesn't need 20 pulls to get started 😬)

    The object of the exercize is one inch curls and twelve tanks of gas every eight hours. But it hardly matters when just a hobby. Filling by hand is the way it is done throughout the world for a reason.

    Bucking Billy has the most positive vibes of anyone on YouTube. Dude is legit spreading love through cutting down trees. Love his channel!

    There is a new video of a Swiss guy filing his Stihl with a triangular file. Goes through wood like a laser beam.

    He also specifies what angles to use in hard or soft wood. Just nuts the difference.

    As a tree guy, always get a commercial model of any brand. They will have much fewer problems. My saws sit for months at a time and start on a couple pulls. That's with ethanol gas in them. Have never replaced a carburetor or piston/jug. Seems like my friends want to use their 'homeowner' saws they start by taking them to the saw shop first. As for chains, once I put one on it stays til used up, always file sharpen.

    In my part of the world we have alot of hard woods we burn , so just a touch up after every tank of fuel with a round file . It gives the saw a chance to cool down and you never need to spend hours filing a chain you could ride to London on.

    Why not save yerself a few doll hairs and use a right angle die grinder with a three inch cutoff wheel? Just sayin…
    Sorry, don't know what three inches equates to in the evil measurements. Look it up if you dare.

    Impressive technique; tend to think users buy cheaper chains than they should and do not clean said chain after use. Particularly in damper wood, post-cutting cleaning is essential in my view. Additionally, purchasing a carbide style chain w/ an evenly broken- in bar also helps. Run a HusQ 555 X-TorQ Auto-Tune w/ hogged-out muffler and brake off tune, but still sharpening by hand.

    That hack work fine when all your cutting is pecker poles but if you ever find yourself cutting man wood the width being the length of the bar the chain will pull to one side or the other and piss ya off. That's why the bushlers are so picky about sharpening their power saws.

    Seeing any anglegrinder being used without its cover worries me.
    Seen one too many workplace accidents where people have removed them.

    I do this thing with dull chains where I look at the job of sharpening one, consider it, and then pay 70 kopeks and buy a new one every other year. That said my old husky doesn't see a ton of use.

    That's exactly how I fix up a chain that hit a nail, 1/8" wheel in an angle grinder. Then just stroke once or twice with the file and she cuts perfect. Also cut those fucking rakers way down, the saw should almost stall if you leave it to gravity when sharp that way when its a little dull it still cuts nice without leaning on it.

    My 1979 Oleomac 251 Automatic always starts on the third pull, but shes a heavy girl and the non exixtent vibration dampening will make your hands shaky after some hours of use. Anyways if it aint broken don't replace it

    Hate to be that guy, but you only get one set of Eyeballs, take it from a guy that (used to) cut fairly often, and has seen two guys loose vision in one of their eyes. SOMETHING is better than nuthin! (Also bugz don’t fog up!)

    When you said "I thought this said Husqvarna, not Poulan." I lost it and my family wondered why I was laughing so hard.
    By the way, I happen to own a Poulan.

    I pour myself a nice scotch, and then use a file on my chain .… good excuse to enjoy a single malt “for work purposes”.
    I however very much approve of your quick and dirty way of doing it … as long as you don’t go too deep and only use the tip mind you!
    Stay warm up there, just had our first snow down here on the flooded wet coast, and already turned to rain.
