well to bump it up, turn out there were more trees on that land then they said. I now have a total of 5 chains with it also. It cuts trees lightining fast, so much better then my unkles craftsman and my old poluan. It got to the point he just put his up because his chain kept popping off because of that tooless tighting system on it. There were tons of pine trees out there, it was fine on the pine's but the ceders it didnt like after about 10 of them then I had to sharpen or swap chains.
Had one tree the ms880 would of been so nice for, I had to cut one side of the wedge, go to the other side, then go through the middle. Its was a Big Mo-Fo. Took me about 15 min to get it down, and 10 of that was trying to change a hot chain out. We tried to pull it, didnt work So I halfed the tree, didnt work barried the tractor up trying to get it out. Then had to cut it 2 more times before it was light enough more the tractor to pull it. Then we only had to cut the other end once but I de-limbed it. Then he gets half way down and breaks the chain, And it was a big chain. It was mybe 12 feet long and weighed at least 75#.
That was the first 3 day weekend we did. Not bad for 2 people.
And this picture ^^^^ was about 3/4 of the way down, there is about 200 yards behind me.
All the way to that tree line, beleave it or not that is 2 acres of land they got recently.
Im going to take a picture of the brush pile next time. lol
Point is, I recomend this chain saw to any one. But if you do get one beaware that the Auto oiler needs to be all the way up for pines/ceders
