Small Chainsaws

Postby Eugene » Mon Jun 03, 2019 3:35 pm

Picked up two small chain saws for trimming trees. These are replacements.

1) Remington RM1035P 10 In. Electric Pole Saw. 120V, Extendable to 15 feet. Works well, no complaints. Only problem is that it's a heavy (leverage) when extended out to 15 feet. Nice thing is that it is easy to brake down into a hand held chainsaw.

2) Dewalt DCCS620B 20V MAX XR. 12" bar. Replacement for an ancient Stihl, parts no longer available. Light weight, easy to handle, pretty easy on batteries. Quite a bit slower than a gas powered chainsaw especially when bucking logs 6" in diameter or more. I really like this saw.

Wife and I are currently trimming up black walnut trees and branches overhanging the mowing areas along the fence line, pasture and the drive way.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I got one of the Dewalt saws about a month ago. I like it, too. So does my wife. Doesn't replace a real chainsaw for the bigger jobs, though.

I just started collecting older 80’s chainsaws I once logged with. I have Swedish Husqvarna’s of all sizes from 40 cc to 100cc. The 100cc 2100 is one I used for decades. I have 28” , 32”, 36”, & 42” bars forbthe 2100. I have a Poulan pro pole saw gas powered. It’s a discontinued husky model. I also collect the Swedish partner chainsaws too. I mainly collect Swedish saws but I have some mccullochs and one italian bender Castor chainsaw, in the past I cut some big trees some gave me seven cords of firewood? I once cleaned up storm damage near where Thomas Jefferson had his horse shoes. Monster 100 yo + maple tree in the 80’s after Gloria took it down.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I have the 20” bar /chain, 24” bar / chain, 28” bar / chain, 32” bar / chain 36” bar and chain and the 42” bar and chain. All the bars use .404” / .063” gage chain on the 100 cc 2100 husky power head. I’m a spaghetti bender but I love my Swedish chainsaws. They supported my family for many decades throughout the recessions. I need a saw mill attachment next I have a giant ash tree to take down soon for a new kitchen set.

I have a small Stihl chainsaw, but hardly ever use it. I have found that my Dewalt battery powered reciprocal saw is much lighter and easier to handle, and with the good quality pruning blades will cut almost as fast as a small chainsaw. In addition, the batteries last a long time.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
