Depends on how many pieces you need cut. Chain is too dull after each piece, saw is no longer full of fuel, etc. need a fresh new saw for each piece for those reasons alone.

Not quite sure about the one piece and the blade is dull thing . For instance, if you are cutting 12 inch logs , you could in theory get 4 cuts before needing a sharp blade thing . Basically use a 24 " blade on a 24 " blade holder . As you are only cutting with half of it , you get 2 cuts ! Then you can use the top part of the blade for 2 more . Make sure to use safety blades as this can be highly tech ical ,and dangerous ! The end .

That went way over my head. But I think what you're saying is we should all buy at minimum 36" bars for cutting firewood all the while making sure the wood is as small of a diameter as possible? Am I right?

And to add to that, we should all be cutting on the southeast sections of our property. Any other spot is just a waste of time.

Zakly correct ! I think i also read that you can have your blades ported and cut 40% more wood .

Came home last night and found this left by the free wood fairy. Beech, hard maple, and yellow birch :banana:

You fellers sure do get some strange wood. ya'll ain't got no oaks?

Yeah there's oak here, I got some monsters to take down on an old barb wire fence line...I'm fearing for my chain :meh:

That Beech is just about the same as oak for BTU's.
