Yeah I've never listened to the bureaucrats on that one.

Woaaah. Next stop for me is America!

Chainsaws are illegal in the wilderness areas.

If it needs to be cut, it'll be cut by hand.

Those who've never used one would probably be surprised at how fast a well-sharpened 2-man crosscut saw can cut. When you count time spent filling gas and oil, and cussing at the d*mn chainsaw that doesn't start no mattter how often you pull the rope - or starts, but dies the second you try do start a cut... Well, the difference isn't all that great.

It all depends on how much you use em, through the late summer - middle of winter mine gets a lot of use, starts every time, sharpen it every time I use it hard, the worst thing for em is when they sit. Especially if they sit with gas in em.

If you know you aren't going to use a saw for a while, pour the gas back in the can out of it, start it and rev it up till it quits, the carb will be empty, the tank will be empty and thus it wont varnish up.
