    Anybody else seen the video on Yahoo of the Australian chainsaw about that length powered by a Holden V8? Downright scary!

    A big White Oak tree fell down at the range, and took out the gate. It would need a saw that big to cut through it in one cut. I don't know what the tree removal guys used, but it cost $1500 to get it moved and took a front-end loader. Looked like a two-cut from the stump. And that was only half a tree that branched off; half of it remains. Lots of firewood there to be taken. But you'd need a big saw to cut it off in lengths to split it.

    Back when I was a youngster, at the sawmill where I briefly worked they used a straight-eight Buick engine to turn the blade. It lasted a long time.

    Burning White Oak in the cook stove or the heaters is OK, Gene, but best not to put it in the fireplace. Darn stuff will pop and throw live coals all the way across the room. There's some stuff in the wood cells called "Tyloses" that causes it to do this. The tyloses also closes up the wood cells to movement of liquids, and that's why White Oak is used for whiskey barrels.

    Wonder if that long bladed Stihl is part of an "Alaska Mill" used to rive out boards from large diameter logs. Damn good saws, Stihls!

    Did you take it for a test drive?

    Nope, that is a pure felling saw. The engine would have to be three times that big to cut anything half as big as that bar with the grain.
    Probably bought by a tree service. One of those tools that you need five times a year, but when you need one, it pays off in time saved having it in the shop. I have seen a couple huskys that size used for that.

    Correct. Felling and linking only. I'll tell ya, linking is where you get your rest with a saw that big.

    No test drives. One does not pay 2k+ for a used saw :p

    This was bought by an individual. Not sure if it's for commercial use.

    I'll bring one that will work. It will not be nearly this impressive though.

    Make sure you keep some of the wood for the smoker.........

    It's almost a sin to bring down anything that would require that size saw. Back at the ranch we had a few old oaks that the forester that I hired to get some timber out said were probably over 300 years old. Man I loved those trees...

    The ones that big that need felled are usually a hazard or in the way of a ROW or such. I have what is called a Penns tree in my woodlot. It is a white oak that was here when William Penn was here.

    I've got a couple that are standing dead...a future hazard and are therefore destined for the woodpile. There are also a couple trees that have developed a distinct bow in the main trunk. Just doing some selective cutting. Also nothing that NEEDS a saw of that size...but it sure would be fun to run...
