Well I never had a chainsaw before. But I've got one now.
A big (15" diameter) limb fell in the backyard. I figured
out what the tree removal places would charge, and then thought
"I've never had a chainsaw before" Didn't know if I should get a
gas one, or an electric, but settled for the electric. It's got plenty
of power and sawed up the limb. My grandfather was a real lumberjack in
Northern Wisconsin, before they had power saws, when he first came to the
States from Norway. I bet he'd have given anything at times for a chainsaw,
since the trees they felled, they did with a 2 man bow saw. Certain tools
make a person think of how things used to be...like this one.
