    Call someone local that sells firewood. Tell them they can have it for free. It'll be gone by Monday.

    I'll keep it for pruning and shit... but just bought this and it goes through soft and hardwood like a champ...

    My mom has a small Stihl saw that has the easy pull start and it is fantastic for trimming. I have a Craftsman 50cc 20 inch blade that does all the hard work of cutting down and cutting up trees for firewood. Have had it 3 years and it still runs and cuts like a champ. Also rebuilt an old husqavarna that my uncle gave me but it does not cut as good as my craftsman saw.

    Those easy-starts were the worst invention ever... at least they were 6 years ago when I used one for the first and last time.

    I have an easy start Stihl that's been in the shop twice to get the pull cord repaired and it's frozen up again. Really a lame invention.

    Hmm both of mine don't that that... even though the smaller one is considered a "Homeowner" saw... I am also running my weedwacker, and two saws on their high octane premix as obviously I don't use them as much as I did before. Also when I bought the saw if you buy a 6 pack of synthetic 2 stroke oil or a gallon of their premix it doubles the warranty... which is what I did.

    I resemble that statement!
    I get free wood whenever I can... it's $250 a cord here and I go through 4 or 5 in an average winter...But I think I might switch to pellets..

    I have a Stihl MS 170 and It's enough saw to do anything I've come across..even an 80FT ash tree that was close to 24" across...I have 2 chains...sharpen one, swap...Sharp chain is the key

    Ya that's my little one... which got like 5 or 6 years of pretty hard use... and yep I have a spare chain for both.

    One other thing that my new big saw seems to control vibration a lot better then my old one.
