New Tools for the Plantation

Wanted to clear out more brush along the north perimeter. I knew my old trusty Echo saw was on its last legs and as I reinstalled the chain the other bolt holding the bar broke. (The first broke some months ago.)

So, off to LeBlanc's to peruse their selection of power equipment.

I am very happy with my new saw. It is an absolute animal. Only a 20 inch bar, but it handled my petrified stumps with ease. Stihl sells their own premix fuel. I grabbed a can for the break in. I'll probably continue to use it as it is good for six months and smells like race gas. $8 per quart, but for a $450 saw, it's worth it.

Don't forget to bring it up for Labor Day. Have a big stump to get rid of.
