Ain't that Echo a sweetheart? So light, one-hand-operation is possible; so powerful she'll gnaw through anything she's put to as if it was a pound of butter!

That's the saw I bring when I'm camping alone...

But when couple-camping it's a different story. The vid illustrates my Husband's favored approach- whence my "hauling problem". I may just throw in the towel, get a flatbed trailer, and stick the Trillium on it piggyback-style, giving him all the room he needs!

Wonder how big it'll have to be to haul the backhoe, too...

Talking chainsaws as projectiles

I know you have seen persons juggling chainsaws but have you ever seen one used as a projectile?

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

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?
Eye protection and steel toes yes...

I wear 'em all day every day for work anyway. Its to the point that I feel almost naked without boots.

A chain brake is good protection for the occasional kickback and makes starting a high compression saw a bit safer.

I bought the gloves after having a chain break and wrap around my wrist. My only saving grace was that I had some seriously heavy welding gloves on, due to packing the branches onto my trailer.

I was scared to take the glove off. It was cut wide open, I didn't have a scratch. I took it as a sign to buy the gear.
