Best First Chain Saw For Home and Land Owners? When Are Battery Powered Chainsaws The Best Option?
afleetcommand


Published on May 3, 2018
An Opinion with a typical "twist". You tired of the lectures where there is some "expert" defining the one right way for everything? Join the revolution...:) Subscribe and go along for the ride. MANY ways to "skin a cat". Many "right" options for the right tool for a given task. Chainsaws are tools but also a gateway into entire paradigms for forestry related and land management related interests. As well as a "motor sport" & potential mechanical hobby for average folks. Going to brush around those concepts in this video. So whats the best "first" chainsaw? Completely depends on you (And your situation/task)....take a listen to the video......

Right Coast 372XPW vs. Left Coast Redwood
hotsaws101


Published on May 1, 2018
As mentioned, Mr. Wolff's 372XPW out on the left coast felling some Reds. Initially I stated it was an insane-o zipkit, but,,,, a miscue on my part. I brought 8 saws for testing on this outing, all in various states of tune, and glitched on this one for a moment...
OEM 372XPW, sporting an Oregon 3' liteweight bar. Insane-o SS zipkit.
Seems to me that it moves right along pulling a 3' chain. Guess we will be waiting for the owner to weigh in on end result.
I was allowed to have this saw for a good stretch, and I am thankful to Mr. Wolff for the accommodation.
I am currently available for port work. Please shoot me an email if you are interested.

Scag V Ride 2 Demo! Testing Out The Scag V Ride 2 And Full Walk Around Of Unit & What's New!
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on May 9, 2018
Today we had our local Pace rep drop off the brand new Scag V Ride 2 for Demo! I have been eagerly awaiting getting to test out some products from Scag lawn mowers and it finally came together.

I reached out to the folks at Scag last fall to line up a demo, so I could weigh in and test out the Scag V Ride 2 and the Scag Turf Tiger 2 on our channel. Lot of you guys know I enjoy using my Exmark's, but I wanted to see what all the hype was about with the Scag V Ride 2!

We met up with Michael and Rich and did a full walk around, signed the paper work, and got to get some initial tests on Michaels property. We really enjoyed our first initial uses and impressions with the Scag V Ride 2! I can see why you guys like this one!

Stay tuned for a part 2 and 3 this week as we put her to the test and capture a bunch of footage with us mowing, and then my final review/thoughts on the mower by the end of the week!

Do you guys like the Scag V Ride 2? What's your guys experience with Scag been like so far? Leave me a comment down below!

Mowing Grass and Laying Stripes With The New Scag V Ride 2! | Scag V-Ride 2 Demo And Mowing Grass
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on May 13, 2018
Today we put the Scag V-Ride 2 to the test on our 3 day demo mowing grass and cutting lawns! The Scag V Ride 2 has been such a fun unit to test and cut lawns with over the last day and a half!

I will have to say, I am very surprised how much I am enjoying using the new Scag V Ride. It has definitely earned its stripes and reputation for being a great stand on mower! I haven't made any decisions yet, but this was 2 day of my demo where we got to put this guy to the test.

For those of you guys who have the Scag V Ride and V-Ride 2, I am curious how you guys like it. Do you guys have the 52" or 61" deck? Do you guys have the Kawasaki or the Kohler EFI? Leave me a comment down below!

Timmons Area Super Tight Shot
hotsaws101


Published on May 6, 2018
So yah, this did take awhile. But yah, quite a bit of scale. Ripping on both sides of the back - which doesn't actually help a guy's chain added a little to the time frame. Me, enjoying the opportunity in some really nice second growth. Me also going the extra mile with the face trying to save the trees in this strip since the value of the delivered logs was so great.
The first four logs, (2) 20s, a 40 and a 32 tallied ~ 4360. 21" diameter at the forth cut. Their was another long log (32') and a shorty (16") in the top. Total volume was a little over 5 thousand board feet woods scale for the tree.
It grew a little oblong on the stump, being a double. 4' 8" to 5' 4" across depending on how it was measured.
By God's grace tucked it in the slot, after it pretty much stops mid flight, coming to rest (and not broken) on a stump that I sniped about 75' feet out.
I am currently available for port work. If you are interested, please shoot me an email.

Scag Day 3 Demo + Final Thoughts On The V Ride 2 | Joining Team Scag?!
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on May 15, 2018
Alright guys so today marked the end of our SCAG V-Ride 2, 3 Day SCAG Demo! I wanted to take some time to put the V Ride 2 through it's paces and give an honest report back on the machine.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the demo! I was joking with my friend Mike, you never know what's out there with other gear and equipment if you don't try something new once in a while.

The reason I wanted to test out the SCAG V Ride 2 is because of the popularity it has with a lot of you guys and what I see on Instagram with it's stripe hype!

I wanted to see how it did up here in MI with our Kentucky Blue Grass, how the operator platform held up with the fatigue factor, and just overall how it performed in my subdivision style lawns.

I haven't made any decisions just yet, but overall I was super impressed with the whole demo. This isn't a publicity stunt. If I buy one, I have to throw down my own hard earned cash, just like the rest of you guys! So I wanted to take it serious and really put some hours on the unit and, see how it actually performed in the real world.

What do you guys think overall about the demo and the video we shot on the unit? Do you guys have/run a Scag V Ride (1 or 2!) and like yours? Has anyone compared it to the Exmark Vantage?

The main question is: should we join #teamscag? I guess only time will tell! Leave a comment down below!

BIG thank you and shoutout to SCAG for letting us demo this unit and arranging things! I reached out to them, not the other way around, just to set the record straight!

BIG shout out and thank you to Rich with PACE for helping fulfill the demo! Rich and I had a lot in common and he was definitely a great resource in this whole process. You'll see more of him and possibly another SCAG demo here in June/July.

Hard To Start Farmertec 660's A NEW Wrinkle for Fall 2017 Spring 2018

Published on May 20, 2018
Adding MORE OEM and better quality AM parts to get the Farmertec 660's to a workable state. THAT means more than a typical "Hobbiest" will require. Except in this case, the parts have made them impossible to start. A new wrinkle where OEM parts are in fact a must.....and this is adding up BTW.

Husqvarna Stand On Mower Demo! ► + Laying Stripes ► Husqvarna v554 Walk Around + Demo!
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on May 22, 2018
Today was an awesome day as we got to meet up with Todd from Husqvarna to drop off and demo their brand new V554 Stand On mower!

This one has been a few months in the making, but things finally lined up where we were able to demo the new Husqvarna v554 and share it with you guys!

I wanted to say a big shout out and thank you to Husqvarna for sending this monster out for demo and for us to show off on our channel to you guys. This mower made a huge splash at GIE last fall, and when I saw it, I knew I wanted to demo it and see what it was all about.

Fast forward 6 months later and we finally got our hands on one. We will have this guy for about 2 weeks, so I am excited to put some hours on it and report back to you guys on how it performed.

If you guys have any specific questions, leave me a comment down below. I will do my best to answer them as fast as I can and get them answered for you.

Are you guys interested in this Husqvarna mower or have you had a chance to demo one yourself? Did any of you guys get to test it out at GIE last fall? Let me know, leave me a comment down below!

Check it out:
https://www.husqvarna.com/us/products...

Thanks again Husqvarna for sending this out to us to demo and share with the lawn care community!

If you are looking for aftermarket chainsaw parts, please support my channel by buying from these guys:
http://www.hlsproparts.com/category-s...

Disclaimer: ladies and gents, this is a CHAINSAW, working with, building and fiddling with these can KILL YOU, I am not and will not be responsible for improper technique or accidents even remotely relating to this video, please view for entertainment purposes only.

Products I like here:
Threebond 1184 - for base gasket delete
Brakekleen
blue loctite
mobil 1 synth grease
stihl r3 fuel line

I am stumbling forward on this 272 build. because this isn't a box of parts, and I didn't do much of a teardown, I'm literally following my nose on this build. plenty of parts are missing, ordered improperly, out of spec etc. it happens when doing full builds. stay with me on this, we'll get it together!

I'd like to thank Joe P - Onan18 on the forums for his advice on this build. He has a sweet pictures thread on opeforum on how to build this saw.

Stihl ms200 vs Psy-Ko-ized 200T
hotsaws101


Published on May 23, 2018
So, God has a way of keeping a guy humble - ran out of gas right in the end with the 200T. Kind of a small tank on those, I found out the hard way.....
Next attempt is going to be with some of the PS version chain since the save you from yourself - anti-cut (anti-kickback) rendition is visibly rough and slow.
Mt. Fanny, 7,136 feet in the sky.
Little kid wood lot is ~ 3000 feet in the sky.
This is the first real attempt at getting one of the 020/200T platform saws to run. I would consider this build to be a torque tune. There are couple of different cylinder configurations that I know of. This 200T has what I would consider to be the better of the two for making power.
Fully adjustable carburetor.
Seemed to run ~ 2/3 seconds faster in a 8/9 inch cut.
It would take awhile to get both completely dialed in carburetion wise and we can all hear the missing a high idle in both.
I am currently available for port work. If you are interested, please shoot me an email.

Published on May 27, 2018
an old friend had this cheap gen set that sat for a long time with fuel left in the machine. well that caused the float in the carb to fail. then the gas filled up the crank case causing the rings to get varnished to the cylinder wall seizing the engine. lets see what it will take to fix this.

STIHL FS 91R TRIMMER PROBLEM [EXMARK MOWING]
Spencer Lawn Care


Published on May 27, 2018
Brand new stihl FS91R Trimmer that is having running issues. It will not stay running and doesn't feel like it has the power it should. We have been using this trimmer for about a month.
