Tools Of The Trade

I acquired a few chainsaws in a complicated deal a while back, so now my stable is complete. Clockwise from top are the Husqvarna 335XPR arborist saw, a flyweight little ripper with tons of power for limbing and working in trees. Next is a big Stihl 041 that now has a happy home with my sister's contractor Mark near Ottawa. Then comes the big Husqvarna 385XP professional forestry saw. Depending on where I am with it, it generally is the largest capacity saw for at least 20 miles in any direction - 85cc, with 6.5hp of brute cutting power. And last is my trusty Husqvarna 353, a top quality mid-size saw, which has seen a lot of work in its life.
