    Question Does Scott Smith Have One Of These?

    While perusing the latest Popular Science, I saw a picture of the Stihl MS 880 Magnum:
    Bar length: 5ft 11in
    Max chain speed: 59mph
    8.6 HP
    Uses 89 Octane (I'm guessing non-ethanol)
    33.1 lbs

    Yours for only $2200
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    That's a beast. It'd be fun to play with, but not use all day.

    I like making things. I have a wood shop at home. I am a terrible carpenter but I love doing it. Raymond - Charlotte, NC

    Would not surprise me if he did and maxed it out!
    Seems like he had himself and an 880 in his avatar at one time.
    NCFS District 9 had one at the district office a while back and never used it. Truly a beast to lug on a fire line.
    A 440 with a 36" bar did the biggest they needed usually. Any bigger and they had the tractor take it out.

    If he had one I am sure replaced the stock motor with a V-8 or at the least converted to run on 3 phase.

    Re: Does Scott Smith Have One Of These?

    You guys crack me up!

    I actually DON'T own an 088 or 094. Almost bought one but did not like the fact that none of my bars, chains or other spare parts would work with it. I buy chain in bulk and all of my saw's and slabber use the same pitch chain.

    Instead, I took an 066 Magnum and had it fully rebuilt with oversized piston, carb, etc. It pulls a 48" bar pretty well in oak.

    But what size saw do use for the big stuff Scott?
    Experience is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, and the lesson later.

    I've run a stock 660 before. No thanks to a hot rod. But I was fascinated with the 090G for awhile.
