    Now THIS is a Saw

    This looks like it could do some damage if you dropped it on your foot.

    That is TOO COOL!

    But you'd better be pretty careful with your movements if you're the pilot. Drift to the side too far, and there are going to be a lot of people in the dark. I'd also hate to be the guy on the ground crew that has to be around when that sucker sets down.

    I'd love to see one of those running in a video. That's pretty darn cool.

    Thats how the power lines are trimmed around here. Quite the action to see.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you dont know what tool to buy next, then you probably dont need it yet.

    For videos, youtube.com and "helicopter chainsaw" this one gets in pretty close: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oceC9DzDLlE

    "Helicopter Chainsaw" Wow, yeah I wouldn't want to be anywhere near underneath one of those.

    Reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSXceuQyYTg
    I saw an article about something akin to this in an Australian Geographic years ago and always wanted to see one in person!

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
