New powah tool
« on: June 30, 2020, 06:16:33 PM »
Picked up this Stihl HT131 pole saw today. Been scrounging my buddies HT103 and decided to spring for my own. This is the next one up the chain more powah bigger gear box and 14 in chain.
11-17 ft extension and 17 lbwt.

I will be doing alot of lower stuff on the lane with it. Those pesky cedars that grow full to the ground well mow I can easily clear 3-4 ft up from outside the tree.
649 well spent.

Also snagged an extra chain for it and a new 16 in bar/chain for my MS211 saw.

Gonna put um to use on the land this 3 day weekend.

Ya know celebrate Merica.

I bought a Black & Decker years ago to trim the big oak in the front yard. Wanted to thin it out so I could get some sunlight on the bare spots under the canopy and hopefully get the grass stimulated.

Had been cultivating a limb on a post oak in the back yard so you couldn't see the raised deck from the creek. Took me five or six years to get it right. Working the night shift I was sleeping one afternoon when I heard a chainsaw going to work. Got up and found my brother in law hacking away at the lower limbs of the post oak, at my wife's direction, the limb I had cultivated was the first victim. I was pretty pissed.
 
A few weeks later my wife took it to her sisters place 150 miles away and forgot to bring it back. It stayed there three months. When it returned I cleaned it up and got it ready to use for my next days off. Not to be. My wife loaned it to my neighbor down the road who used it to cut some old fence posts that had about 50 years of staples and nails in them. Ruined the chain.

After four years I replaced the chain this past April. Have put it to use on the oak tree in the front yard. Brother in law asked to borrow it last week. LOL.

UH that would be a NO.
However your local stihl dealer can assist you in procuring one made just for you.

Good try however Axxe. I like your style.
