    Personal Gloat!

    After my old chainsaw died last fall I knew I was in need of another.

    This is what I bought today. A Stihl 460 with a 28" bar.

    As the saying goes, It cuts like butter!

    Congrats on the saw, Pete. That's a real hoss. When I got my MS390, I got the 24" and 18" bars. I use it in the short mode the most, but it's nice to be able to go bigger if I need, and I have had several occasions to so do.

    From the looks of your picture, I'd say you're gonna need to bulk up a bit before you use that new saw much. I always envisioned you as being a bit older and taller, with bigger arms.

    Nice saw, you are going to smile each time you use it!

    nice saw. Stihl makes some of the best. I see they threw in a free hat. Hard to get a free hat in these parts.

    The hat was free, but you should see what the kid cost.

    Looking at that Avatar, me thinks he needs to go see Toni's barber.
