Hey guys new here. Just have a question about my new saw when I am cutting wood it takes about 25 minutes and a half tank of gas to get through a 8 inch piece of oak is this normal? I rev the saw up all the way and pull it back and forth as fast as I can while cutting but it still cuts slow and the chain smokes alot.

Yep all seems normal in here.


Sounds good. Chain smoke means the saw is buring fuel and if the saw is burning fuel that means it's running. Can't cut wood if the saw isn't running. I say keep'er goin' as is I think you're doing just fine.

Holy crap 8 minutes!!!!!!

Woods on fire before I get a quarter of the way through, so I technically don't have a time comparison as I've never completed a full cut with my wildthing. I'm definitely impressed with your results. Is it ported or something?

I'd say it's your chain. The best thing to do is just go buy a new one. in fact you should probably get a few packs of chain and maybe even a new blade...yes the blades do go bad from time to time. Make sure you have a pro put the new chain and blade on for you, I have seen some guys that try to save a buck put them on upside down and you don't want to look like a jerk when you are logging with an upside down blade on a saw with such sweet graphics.

When it takes more than two minutes to get through an 8" piece of oak it's time to throw the chain away again and buy a another new one.

MAKE SURE WHEN BUYING NEW CHAIN THAT YOU DO NOT SKIMP ON THE SAFETY FEATURES!!!!!! Get one with as many extra bumps and as few cutters as possible. If OSHA shows up and you are using the cheap stuff with no safety gear on it you could be written up.

Also make sure you put oil in the oil tank at least once a week, this keeps the chain lubed up so it doesn't get stuck in a log. The pros just use the used oil from their cars. If you ask for it at Jiffy Lube when you are done getting your oil changed they will probably just give it to you. I like to bring an empty big gulp cup for them to put it in.
