It had 260hp john deer on other end of the pull line and the driver was instructed not to hang around wen it was time to go the tree was so decayed it needed pulling with conviction ! I am a massive husqvarna man as you can probably tell every saw is orange but if I felt like there was a better option for my largest saw then a 3120xp I would own that the ms880 is just not a option for me used them plenty of times but I find them numb to use slow chain speed and allot more difficult to pin point fell with them


I had this conversation with someone the other day. Our 880 (in standard form) does seem very slow for a 120cc saw and that’s on a 30” bar. I bet that ported 3120 is ferocious. What size bar do you run on it?

A few from recent jobs with hired in hydraulic muscle helping out with less than ideal access jobs , decent lumps of beech being lifted down with the crane the Yorkshire Compact Loaders helping shift lime out a churchyard.

Heaping up the woodchip so we can get more in. Next plan is to screen it and get the compost out and the chips can then go out.

Rhinox bucket as well! Awesome! ?

Easy life today, an hours drive to a job I’d priced on a photo, maiden lime to take out. Felled it in one, leave chip and wood on site.

 

Back on the sofa by 1pm
