Help me with my STIHL MS 270

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon everyone

I ran into 1 problem recently

I should cut down 8 oaks in my grandpa's garden, tree trunk thickness is about 1200 mm. I have only STIHL MS 270 and i used it only to cut down some branches. Cuold anyone give me piece of advice, is it possible to do this job with my STIHL or it's better to call some professionals to do this job.

If you have any questions or proposals I'm happy to answer or read it

Thank you very much

Best regards

Hi Michael,

 

You're going to struggle with a 270 on a trunk that size.  Sounds like a job for a professional, at least to get it on the ground and safe for you.
