using a stihl 660 cutting down hardwood trees

507 days ago by Harry Montana | 8 comments »

Hello, calling from Bolivia, I am reading the chainsaw reviews and for us working in the forest cutting down hardwood trees (ipe, massaranduba; I a mean the hardest of the hardest) there is one chainsaw suitable only which is Stihl 660. There is also Husqvarna but for some reason quality is less then Stihl. We buy each and every year at $980 here in Bolivia a Stihl 660 and its capacity is around 2000 trees per year, (average diameter of 20”), including cutting of the branches and lengthening ...

Better than I expected.

Better than I expected.

I’ve always been skeptical of electric chainsaws but when a maple blew down in our yard I decided to give electric a shot. A gas powered saw would rarely get used and probably the next time I needed it, wouldn’t run. What I really wanted was an Earthwise, not a brand I’m familiar with but they have rave reviews. Unfortunately my only choice locally was Poulan. Once home I filled it with bar oil, plugged in and went to work on a 14” wide limb and it zipped right thro...

Poulan Pro PP5020AV 20" Bar 50cc Engine

Poulan Pro PP5020AV 20" Bar 50cc Engine

To start, I want to mention I started a couple of threads on the subject of chainsaws. To begin with, I wasn’t happy having to buy a Poulan….... ANYTHING…... I’ve had my share of problems with those engines and understand the well deserved nickname of “pullin’” Some of those old saws and weed eaters wouldn’t start with starting fluid and and a stick of dynamite. However, this saw seems to be different. I bought it (Poulan Pro PP5020AV) ...

Great Electric Saw

Great Electric Saw

938 days ago by doug1980 | 3 comments »

Let me start by saying I was a lumberjack for 10 years, and only used Stihl. Even now Stihl is the best in my opinion. Having said that they are expensive, and I couldn’t justify spending over $300 for an electric saw. This saw has a 16” bar, tool-less chain tensioning and has 3.5 HP. I use it to shape my bowl blanks in the shop, since my wife has banned me from using my Stihl 290 in the shop. Apparently it stinks up the whole house, who knew. For less than $100 it was a gre...

Poulan P3314 Chainsaw

Poulan P3314 Chainsaw

1540 days ago by TopamaxSurvivor | 14 comments »

I bought this Poulan 14” P3314 a couple of years ago because I wanted a smaller saw for small jobs. It had a very good price at Lowes. I have a small electric for around home, but now needed one for woods use. My other saw is a 041 Super Stihl. I don’t recall what it weighs but I run 28 and 32 inch bars on it. It is a bit unwieldy at times and a bit tiring for all day use. This little Poulan has plenty of power for its 14 inch bar and cuts fast and straight. The only down side is the ...

Amazing little chainsaw!

Amazing little chainsaw!

1628 days ago by SchotterWoodworking | 14 comments »

I picked up the Stihl MS 180 from a small shop called Straub’s near Haubstadt, Indiana for a little less than $200.00. I had never used a Stihl and bought it based upon the recommendation of my coworker who has a penchant for discriminating taste in tools. I bought it for small chores of cleanup and light firewood cutting. The chainsaw is lightweight, powerful, and comfortable to use. It does bog down when sawing anything larger than 12” diameter logs, but the bar is only 14”...

Pruner May be Only Chainsaw You Need

Pruner May be Only Chainsaw You Need

2140 days ago by Ick | 9 comments »

I’ve been an owner of a Stihl 16” chainsaw for years. I have 50 acres that has substantial amount of Blackjack Oaks. These trees typically stay until 14” in diameter at the base, so the 16” bar has always been more than enough. A couple of years ago, my wife treated me to a new Stihl Pruner. I’ve been so impressed with this tool that my old standard chainsaw rarely gets used. Whereas I thought the pruner would be a specialty saw, I find myself reaching for...
