No pics :( it was near 24", oval shaped. Bigger than 24 one way less than 24 the other. Old farts have no appreciation for the interweb lol came to do a job so get it done!!!

The old guy loved the 365, "gimme that thing lemme show ya how we do it...."

"holy fark man now that's a saw!"

I don't know what it is about me but I showed up with my two saws. Dad wanted to take his 357 also and put some fuel through that. And this is what I ended up with.



Why does everybody give me their saws? Do they think I'm eric copsey or something?

Now the old guy wants me to toss his 450, turn a 365xt into a 372xt, and he has two big old pines down back he wants to race and see who can get theirs on the ground first. (he doesn't really want to race, just winding me up a bit) I know he'd toast me as I have next to no experience in the real world falling and I'd rather watch him and learn how he does it anyway. But he pretty much loved the way my 365 ran and wants one.

Now I saw old guy as in the old mans best friend. Dad is the old man. This guy is the old guy. Confused yet? Either way sounds like we'll get some petrol burnt and have some fun doin it. I'll be sure to get some pictures of that. It's a few weeks out anyway.

Well the crazy thing is he has a rotator cuff issue with his left shoulder and his strength is really not there. He can't lift his arm over his shoulder height and his right side isn't all that great but it's not weak by any means. But the way he just grabbed the saw and went to town while I was cutting like a turtle was pretty awesome. I am looking forward to cutting the pine trees down back next.
Learning from elders is something ill never be done doing :D

And yes, I wanted pictures too :lol:

Lol I know I know but if I put the saw down to get the camera it would have been done by the time I got it out. There was 4 guys and 6 saws there. 365, 570/576, 357, and some smallies. Blink and you'd miss it! Lol

Good post Tom, and I know the feeling. because I am usually the guys who snaps the shot's, and one of the better cutters. Not braggin but me just holding the camera, and no saw is like Joe montana sitting on the bench. LOL!:evilgrin::banana: It is hard to do both.

Tom buddy, I cut like an SOB today, and no pics, as the star quarter back was in the game all day, and no camera time LOL! Tommorow I will snap a few!

I know the feeling!! glad that you were cutting though, that's the important part. What did you cut? Difficult, easy, big, small?

These two here can be the normall, and hazardous they all are we get into unique stuff always a mixed bag. And it will well round ya. One thing we don't do is stuff in power though, it always has to be cleared of power first when the come down. This one came down last week as I was just about to go home on time LOL! On one of our highways.
