Question for firefighters

Post by townlineterry » Sat Aug 26, 2017 7:50 am

Hi, there must be some firefighters on the forum, need your advice.

I have 2 houses to demolish. Looking to buy a fire and rescue chainsaw to do the job. I am looking for recommendations for a good "moderately priced" saw. Need the good the bad and ugly on different brands.

Before anybody starts with "a sawzall does it cheaper" line, stop right now. I know about sawzall, used them for years. One job will more than pay for the saw and I don't have forever and a day to spend on the jobs.

Stihl...drop the chainsaw, drop the mic, whatever you want to call it...Stihl is it.

I am NOT brand loyal by any means, but while I am not a firefighter anymore, I do log A LOT and have had several different saws over the years. When all is said and done, Husky last about 9 months, and Stihl last years. My last stihl was bought in 1994 and put to rest when I pushed a tree on it accidentally with my bulldozer. Whoops.

You pay the price, but they are a far better saw inside.
I have no intention of traveling to my grave in a well manicured body; instead I am going to slide into heaven with a big power turn, totally wore out with busted knuckles, jump off my dozer loudly yelling, Woo Hoo, another Shepard has just arrived!

whoa, TLTerry, your thinking wrong here, just rent the houses out, they will be demolished.
if you are seriously short of time, use the bulldozer.
or host a weenie roast for the local fire dept.
