    Husqvarna Universal Axe A2400

    Ive split one of these husqvarna axes in half from just banging wedges(plastic) as the poll and axe are held together by some dubious fixing which is cleverly hidden by the rest of the handle. Great weight and size though

    Rates for Self Employed Handcutters

    Get as much as you can!! always on tonnage/volume/meter/acre rate. If felling for a machine its day rate. Unfortunately your only worth what your skill/production rate is and whoever is paying you will always try to lower it somehow so dont give them an excuse to!! You can earn a decent living at it you just have to do the hours and enjoy it!!

    Fake or not?

    looks like a huztl aftermarket saw or a ebay chinese complete copy you can buy for 200 and assemble yourself!!

    Sorry! Need saw selection advice

    if your using it only few times a week get a dolmar/makita 6100 it will do exactly what you want and a bit more. its not as nimble in the hand as a husky/stihl but is an excellent saw for a lot less outlay
