    Mr. Billow's Insane-O Ported ms461
    hotsaws101



    Published on Aug 6, 2016
    Here we have the latest Stihl 461 out of the shop, zip kitted with the insane-o version port job. Steve wanted an animal of a 461 so we built him just that. This saw absolutely barks! It is sporting an unlimited ignition coil so we won't hear any missing due to the spark cutting out.
    The chain is an Oregon full comp, square chisel with the stops set for Redwoods so I was a little skeptical taking on this mini, inland, residual fir tree. It has enough low end torque to pull the chatter (rakers/riders/stops a fuzz low) out of the chain in hard fir. I was well pleased with the out come of the "custom saw modifications".
    This saw was a pleasure to use and I am thankful for the allowance of the first test drive for sure.
    I'm currently available for port work. Shoot me an email if you need a hand or are interested in trying something new.

    Chainsaw Bar Weight's 18in, 20in, 24in "Raw Data", A "Snap Shot" Series Video
    afleetcommand




    Published on Sep 9, 2016
    Had a bunch of these around along with wanting to change the HTSS 660 back over to a 20inch light weight bar...SO while I had all that stuff here, figured it was a PERFECT time to break out the scale and generate some raw data....

    Also you who are interested in this type of thing....WEIGHT isn't always the most important factor in chainsaw bar selection. Sometimes "stiffness" / rigidity is. That's why "Cannon" brand bars exist for the price points they sell for.

    Husqvarna 51 Dead Saw Salvage, Amazing how far things can go before they stop!
    afleetcommand



    Published on Sep 18, 2016
    This one is a favor to a friend....didn't have a lot of money for a new saw and certainly not to have a shop @ shop rates get this saw up and running. AND he needs a saw for firewood season. SO I saw an opportunity to both put a smile on someone's face AND touch of the subject of repair where there are no parts available, just have to make do with the bare minimums... NOW being who I am I strayed a little into the world of a more compete shop with machining and fabrication capabilities...SO I couldn't put this under the minimalist theme....so I ended up just being yet another Dead Saw Salvage video with a few twists...

    Timber Tuff Chainsaw Sharpener Review
    jerry bskorner



    Published on Sep 19, 2016
    Get the Timber Tuff Chainsaw Sharpener here http://amzn.to/2cK8iH6

    Get the 1/8th Grinding Wheel Here http://amzn.to/2cK7vWF

    Today i'm looking at the Timber Tuff Chainsaw Sharpener, I purchased this because I couldn't stand using a file it took too long and this seemed like a quicker method. This chainsaw sharpener works really well however the instructions are bad and if you have a consumer grade chainsaw then you'll have to change out the grinding wheel to a 1/8th. Other than that I found it to be a easy way to sharpen your chainsaw chain.

    Chainsaw vs. Piano
    SwissArmyBumpkin



    Uploaded on Jan 2, 2012
    Why should guitarists get away with destroying perfectly good guitars while irreparable piano's sit idly by without purpose? The piano was mine and STUFFED BEYOND REPAIR! get over it!
    I didn't hit a single piece of metal! (well, except the bottle cap) The saw is a Stihl MS880 (121.6cc, 6.4 kW- 8.6 bhp) the bar is 64'' long. And yes, it's heavy, the bar alone weighs 7kg. Combined with the saw, chain and fuel/oil over 20kg and VERY poorly balanced! STAY TUNED FOR MORE BUMPKIN ANTICS!!

    How To Install A More Robust Bar & Chain On A Stihl Ms180, 170, 018, 017 Chainsaw

    Published on May 25, 2012
    Filmed December 2011

    In this video I show you how to install a more rugged bar and chain on the Stihl MS180, 170, 018, 017 chainsaw. I am converting it to a .050 gauge from a .043 gauge bar & chain.
    It is something you may want to consider when replacing the bar and chain on your chainsaw.

    Jonsered CS 2255 Chainsaw Unboxing First Time Setup
    Smart Easy Repair



    Published on Sep 29, 2016
    This is the Jonsered CS 2255 chainsaw. This is an unboxing and first time set up video. It's a little bigger than The Jonsered CS 2252 which is a favorite for a lot of people. I prefer this saw over Stihl, Husqvarna, Sachs Dolmar, Echo, and Efco...I had the Jonsered 2165 chainsaw for almost 10 years now and I love it a lot! Now that I got this I can't wait to cut some trees for firewood!

    http://bit.ly/Jonsered2255 here is the best place I've found to get this saw for the best price including shipping. I hope you enjoy your 2255 if you get one!
    Thanks for watching!

    Stihl MS661 Magnum Pro - First Cut and Test
    At 91cc's and over 7hp, this is a really strong cutting saw. coupled with the 32" bar, it will make a fantastic milling saw as well as being able to cut anything we can throw at it in this area. It has an electronic, computerized carburetor which is something new to me. I'm still a bit old school on saw carbs - adjusting my own carburetor. This may be a nice feature!
    So which is the better saw? Stihl or Husqvarna? That question may never be answered :) They are both good saws.
