I've always thought the Logosol mills were really neat.  :)

Hung the door. Really is nice to see something from the tree to a finished product.

  You have to harvest it before you mill it.

   Cutting some logs for the logosol,I picked that Echo up at a garage sale for $40.00. Great little saw to limb and feed the chipper, you can run it with one hand. I paid $200.00 for the 024, it was nearly new. Can't beat the older Stihls.

Careful with the top handle on the ground. Ur one hand on it will act like a pivot point during a kickback. I knew of a guy who almost lost his eye.

Its a no-no on my crew!

Thanks for the advise. Always careful. I have run saws for 40+ years and never had one kickback or hit the chain break.  Don't know why as you hear so much about it. I will say that I do keep a very firm grip on a saw at all times. Not sure how that little bar could reach your eye unless you had the saw over your head?

This is what a kickback looks like......

Glad you healed up good. I wasn't making light of a chainsaws danger, we cut a lot at work and I could show you pictures of a lot of ruined chaps. Somewhere I have a picture of a Stihl helmet with a hole knocked in from a hemlock limb that came straight down. The guy wearing the helmet only has a stiff neck and a headache,no injury.

I wasnt even going to say anything, but since you have 40 years you should be good.  8)

I do however have heard of more cuts bangs and accidents from one handing a top handle chainsaw working at ground level.  If caught doing so on my jobs i would quickly exchange that gas powered saw with a muscle powered saw.  :D

Have fun!

What size is that mini-excavator, something like a Kubota K008?

I've been thinking about a small one like that for jobs around the farm.
