@Johnnyq60. I usually open carry at the shop, a full size on the left and right hip for balance.
@Zavier_D. A pully and rope won’t work for some of the trees due to size, in most areas ill be cutting, doubtful there will be bears, have medical kit, private property trees, have heavy duty 3 finger gloves I also use at work for dexterity.
@Virgil_H. I’m aware of loose shirt dangers, it won’t be that loose and I don’t hover over the chain, its right where its supposed to be, away from me.
This saw is smaller than what I wanted but I could not justify another 700 on the saw im used too which is a 440 series with an even larger bar.
I picked up a smaller saw as well, just waiting for the shop to get it in due to shipping delays from the smoke, a tiny pocket saw MS 171.
I started off with an O36 when I was 11, safe to say I have some experience with saws, most I’ve had happen to me way chewn pants near the ankle when I was 11, was lessen enough to take all safety precautions.
