I have one on my Stihl MS880. Cutting wood is fairly easy with it. Cutting wood fast however, is not.

You don’t need a Husky or Stihl if you already have a saw and are cutting logs that small. I’d say if you were cutting a bunch of logs often… you probably need to upgrade. That doesn’t seem to be the case.

My mill is made by Granberg and was a little pricey, but I figured since they were including a huge bar (66”) and chain that was to be expected.

You should consider something like this:

As for how fast overall, you can bet on a couple of weeks cutting logs of that size if you’re not doing it full-time. Figure at least 45 minutes to 3 hours per log (I don’t know how fast your saw cuts or how well you sharpen chains).
