    Re: New toyl on the farm!

    Will you use it as a chainsaw mill? Or are you planning to cut some of those redwood trees in CA? Sure does make my 026 look like a child's toy. Doggone nice saw Scott!

    Bruce, I use a dedicated chain slabber that I designed and built (with a friends help) on a spare Peterson sawmill carriage a few years back. This saw will primarily be used to end trim large logs, buck them to length, and on occasionally rip them down (if they are larger than the 6' maximum diameter of my dedicated slabber).

    Chainsaw milling can be quite tedious....

    Dennis, it actually has teeth about every 1.5". What you're seeing is only the cutters on one side.

    Depending upon how well the saw cuts I may modify one of the chains to make it a skip tooth.

    Unfortunately this uses .404 / .063; everything else I have is 3/8 .050.

    Wow Scott that's a huge one!

    What size did Paul Newman use when he cut the desk apart? Don't remember the movie, but that scene!

    Ed, the movie was "Sometimes a great notion" and was made in 1971. Paul used a McCullough chain saw, which was one of the better, professional saws back then. It looked to have a 36" - 42" bar on it.

    Re: New toyl on the farm!

    Thanks Scott, for answering. Years back I had Belsaw mills, and each was a different model. I enjoyed saw milling until the Amish started moving in all around us and took over the saw milling in the area. $120 per thousand B' for hemlock and pine left all the mills in the area without any customers. But I sure did love milling! Rock on brother!

    Hi Steve, great to hear from you. Up until I bought the 880 my biggest saw was an 066 that was rebuilt (and hopped up) a few years back. We pull a 48" bar with the 066 and it does ok.

    Yesterday I used the 880 for the first time to end trim a 44" oak. Holy Smokes! It went through the log somewhere between 2x to 3x faster than the 066.
