    Replacement blades readily available which is great because thw handles are well made and will last decades .... or until you loose this one also
    Yeah looks alright but I think I would still like a folder.

    I was seriously looking at the reciprocating saws and battery powered chainsaws after my last leatherwood encounter. If I was staying here for longer I think I would buy one and do some track work.

    They way I look at it is, I look after some poorly funded DOC tracks for the benefit of the general public, then always seem to get lost .5km off the track and need to periodically cut my way to a bivi camp with the help of my mate Stihl!

    If you are meaning mine - it cuts Kanuka/Manuka up to 10 inch not problem - pine 12-14 inches
    As I said its a saw that runs when you pull the trigger - with the petro 035 and 031 I have - the bastards keep you working as they keep running and you feel you must keep working
    Maybe you will understand better on day in the future
    Also very good around the renovating/building site (landscaping more so) cuts a very fine cut - near as good as a Skilly

    OK - sorry
    Perfect for clearing tracks - how your chain last.

    Chains, I get them off Aliexpress for $50 for 5 posted so I don't sharpen them, just bury them when they are buggered!
    No nails, barbed wire etc where I go just bush!
    021 Stihl, the battery is 1l of 91 octane!

    I’m about as good at sharpening my chainsaw as I am at sharpening my knife, bloody hopeless. I think I will stick with the Armstrong folding saw.
    I do like the way you think with the chainsaw, but seriously there would be house sized clearings everywhere if I took one with me.

    For hand jobs, one of these is brilliant, beats a "normal" pruning saw and has 3 blades in the handle one for wood, steel and bone.... and you can remove them if you dont want the extra weight.

    I got one a few years ago from reloaders in Ak.

    Are you serious, you use a chain until it's blunt then throw it out?
    The battery chainsaws are great for post and rail work.
    Overkill is still dead.
