I couldn't get a good Texas Chainsaw Massacre pose down, so this one'll have to do. Thanks to Brandon for running outside to take this shot for me. I won't be using the saw till later today that's why I'm not wearing all my safety gear. It isn't running either.
Until I actually started using chainsaws, I found them a little intimidating. Now this machine and I have become good friends. It's been a workhorse this winter. I've gotten considerably better at sharpening the chain too. It only pulls a little to one side now. Considering that I don't have a vice to put it in while I sharpen with just a basic guide, I'm doing pretty good.
I love this machine and am doing my best to take good care of it. Chain gets touched up after every use. I keep the chain oil reservoir full. In fact I'm more likely to run out of fuel while working than I am to run out of chain lube. It sleeps inside with the family. One of the best purchases I've made since moving into the bush.
While I work this song by The Band Perry runs through my head. What can I say? I try to have a good time whatever I'm doing.
