this weekend we had our city brach cleanup day (Sat).
made 6 trips in 4 hours with my 16' car trailer... the hedges (mostly trees) used to be as tall as the wire...

good workout for the tree loppers and chainsaw...

More firewood duty with a new Husqvarna 435 - seems to be a very nice firewood saw. Can handle about 20" diameter well. 16" bar. anti vibe, and under 10 lbs - Happy with it so far.......

I'm just running a Poulan Wild Things but picked up a stihl 021 with a scored piston. For $24. Just need to rebuild it.

Poulan's are Husky's made in China (I think). I have a friend with an 021 and that saw won't quit - we've used it a LOT and it always keeps running. $24 for one of those is a steal - I think the scored piston is probably a result of someone running straight gas through it. I know you can get a new piston off ebay for under $30 shipped. If that's all you need, you've really done well. :up:

yeah, I've been watching eBay for the piston kits... haven't had time to dig into it yet... I can get a full rebuilt engine for $100 from eBay, which would still be a deal....
