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.


  1. sweeeeeet! got a little 346xp and a big 395xp out here for the stuff i do! gotta have big saws for the stuff we cut around these parts!

  2. Nice pic, reminds me of Sesame Street.... three of these things belong together, three of these things are kind of the same!
