My Camping Firewood Problem

The saws are bigger than the trailer or the tug...

Hollow out the log, put wheels and a hitch on it and go camping.

McCulloch 840? For firewood LoL! Chainsaws have never been smaller, lighter, or cheaper these days.

Stihl still the best; you can have the rest, including Husky.

I used to have one of those but even after working on it for hours it stihl wouldn't start. Much happier with my Jonsered 2165 and Husqvarna 445 rancher.

Rancher is a fine general-use saw.
cheers

Thanks Ian, and for anyone who really needs a firewood saw the Husky 445 is avaliable online for an unbeatable price. Thats where I got mine. If you think the Husky 445 is nice then the Jonsered 2165 will blow you away. It is also known as the Husky 365 one of the best saws ever made. For camping a saw of this size is certainly not required.

I'm still using my two Homelite Super XL's that I bought about 40 years ago.

Bob, The old all metal Homolites are great, far superior to the new plastic ones.

But they didn't have chain brakes.

Logan, You R right - no chain brake but the engine always starts and has lots of power and has outlasted many of the newer models.

Do you wear head, eye, ear and hand protection and chaps especially made for chain saw use along with steel towed footwear and never operate a chain saw alone?

The name on the power head of that long bar banana slicer in the video wouldn't make much of a difference with that cooked chain. I am just as happy with my Stihl 290 as I would be if it were the majority choice. The Stihl 250 with 16 or 18" bar is a great bucking saw for firewood. And all Stihls are still Stihls. Go too far below the Rancher in the Husky line and you'll hit rebadged Chinese junk.

Never seen a "Homolite" Darwin. Do you wear loafers with that one?
