wow I know it is soft wood but what model saw are you running?
I would be interested in knowing what the boards look like when you saw them
and is that your dozer in the background?
The saw is a clone stilhl ms660 by farmertec. 92cc. Went that route as it is a kit saw. Essentially a grown up LEGO set you put together. Learned a ton about chainsaws while assembling it. Plus about 75% less than a real stihl. It’s perfect for the few times I need a big saw.

The dozer is the contractor that Is dumping the dirt dad is receiving from the road project. I will post pics of the boards. Will probably start a new thread for the gazebo build.

Just cut that in a 1-2" thick slab and keep!

I'm off to the local Stihl dealer after lunch for a new 311 or 391. The Poulan Pro 42cc/18" combo I received 20yrs ago is still hanging on but at end of life after this last weekend. Will keep to delimb or a backup to use if in a pinch with the new one. It's like Christmas Eve😁

Appreciate that response, both models currently in front of me, including a 391 w/25"......believe I'm gonna go 311 /20".
I have a 311 it is a good saw but it can be a bit of a bitch to start. They need to spin at a faster rate to create a spark than other stihl saws. Other than that I also run a 20" bar. Has good power.

Flooded it right out of the gates as soon as I brought her home. Was able to clear it by holding throttle open, which makes me feel better knowing it can be done in the field without pulling plugs n such. I appreciate your info for sure and will remember as I work to grow our relationship together. Just like a women, need to understand her sounds for what gets her fired up.
