No matter what saw you get you will need to learn to file the saw. Keeping the teeth sharp is probably more important than the shape and style of teeth.
Interesting post. I actually have heart disease and discussed doing weight bearing exercise (such as weight lifting) with my doctor recently. I have read quite a bit about many cutting edge researchers saying that weight bearing exercise is better for us than aerobic exercise, counter to what the mainstream has latched onto for the past few decades. Thanks to Jim Fixx. Who, most ironically, died at age 52 while jogging.So, I told me doc I was hand splitting firewood and that is certainly a workout. This post makes me think of a 'problem' I have on the property I recently bought -- numerous dead standing hardwoods that died from the terrible drought a few years ago. Some are pretty rotten. I have intended to cut them down with a chainsaw because they could fall on me or fall on other trees that I want to survive. (I had a friend die from a freak accident when a dead tree fell on him; he never knew what hit him.) I have so many dead trees, it will take a long while to cut them.Lol, I wonder if there is any benefit other than getting some exercise. I guess it's quiet, that's always good.It would be cool to find a good saw for this. Does anyone have an opinion about what would be best for rotten trees? Heck, even an axe might be good. Now, that is a workout!
