    I'm going to buy a chainsaw!

    There is a huge oak tree in the back yard I'm going to have professionally cut down. It looks like I'm going to have alot of fires soon!

    Yay!

    You'll be surprised to find out how many friends you have once you own a chainsaw. Get a pickup truck to go with it, and you'll totally be Mr. Popular.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    Get an axe. Way more fun. Plus Halloween is right around the corner. Lumberjack/axe murderer is a perfect fit.

    Leatherface is a better fit. Take the chain off the chainsaw. Start it up and run around, revving the engine and chasing kids.

    If it is big and oak, call a small independent sawmill. They will come and remove it AND give you money. Then just put the money into renting a stump grinder.

    Really good chainsaws, but you better plan on cutting an awful lot of wood to justify one, I got a Craftsman that does me just fine for as much I use it.

    I have two 100 foot trees that will be down by the end of Spring. There is no way in hell I'm buying anything other than Husqvarna or Stihl. I don't need the aggravation provided by a cheaper chainsaw.

    One tree is nothing for any chain saw, and Stihl basically suck anymore, especially for the price. Husq is now the goto one, but I've cut a lot of wood with cheap saws, homelites, poulins, craftsmans, never really had a problem for years of use with them. The only way to me if I could justify buying a Husq, is if I was entirely heating my house with firewood, and I'm way to lazy to consider doing that. Plus I already have access to a pile that could probably keep me heated for 20 years if I wanted to. My uncle is a wood cutting freak.

    I have two trees along with several 30 foot pine trees that need to come down as well. I also plan on helping my boss clear out some of his woods next summer. I like Husqvarna. I had one for awhile until my mother gave it away accidentally (yes, I typed that right). I know by buying this saw, I'll have it for nearly a lifetime.

    First a chainsaw. What is next? DQ hotdogs and RWNJ propagandizing?

    Can't go wrong with one, but definitely, avoid Stihl unless you pick up an older one from the mid to early 90s. They just have been going off reputation since then.

    Of course it will never beat my Craftsman one, nothing will probably ever beat it. It was free and I doubt anyone will ever give me a free Husq.

    I saw a knock-off one at Lowes today. Then, my pants fell off.
