    I’ve been looking at battery chain saws. You ever consider one of those (not that is has anything to do with your chain problem)?

    I used one while turning three apartments into two. It worked quite well without spewing fumes into the building.

    I have not...but considering the problems I'm having with this Lowe's cheapie it's time to consider something else. I don't know anything about them...how's the torque?


    Just went to Consumer Reports, general consensus with the battery chainsaws is "short run-time per charge and slower speeds make these units strictly for light-duty sawing". Saw (HA...get it??:D) this on more than one review site, including Popular Mechanics. FWIW

    Battery chainsaws aren't there YET, but the best right now in a reasonable price range is the Dewalt 60V.

    I have a gas powered 14" Echo and a cheapie $80 14" Homelite corded electric I got for backup. I gotta say.... that POS corded Homelite has been a workhorse. I had to take several trees down for a fence, along with other clearing duties, and it has been a champ through that, and also 2 hurricane clean-ups. I think it may be on it's 3rd chain. I don't even touch the Echo anymore. Talk about $80 paying for itself over and over again...

    A lot of what I see is from a bike.
    This is a typical ride from the house.

    For car nuts, this is Shelby 260 Cobra #CSX2000, the very first Cobra ever built. It was sold at auction in 2016 for a cool $13.75 million. It's on display, along with tons of other Shelby cars and memorabilia, at the Shelby American Museum in Boulder Colorado. To the right of CSX2000 is a Cobra Daytona Coupe and to the left is an original GT40.

    I have two questions for car guys. 1) When did they start putting the 427 engine in the Cobra? 2) I thought a 427 was a Chevy engine and Ford made a 428? 2.1) Why the 427 for the Cobra and not the 428
