    New sthil reviews

    To correct my original comment , it doesn't have more output than the 661... But not far off

    New sthil reviews

    That's what me and the guys I work with are saying... If it's not detrimental then its going to be in a league of its own. Fingers crossed

    The write up is great... More output than the 661 but freakishly only weighs 6.2 ... It sounds amazing but how light can you go without making it soft?? For example, the lightweight crankshaft [emoji848]. I hope it's revolutionary and not another flop

    Black Friday Deals

    The panther bar and Stihl chain combo for the 2511 is the only way to go . You won't be disappointed

    362cm vs 562

    Out of those two saws I'd chose the 562 but if you threw an echo 620sx into that list , I'd go for that

    High-end rain jacket

    People seem to rate the arbotec smock... I own one and it's terrible at keeping me dry. Great design in terms of cuffs, ass flap, pockets etc. Hood is rediculous so I removed that straight away. It's basically my "we may have drizzle" coat. Actual rain and it's as good as useless

    Wax jacket

    Ordered one off of eBay about an hour ago [emoji16]. I'm 30 in a few months so feel I'm allowed [emoji16]

    Releasing knot from rope

    Double the rope over on its self then tie your knot. Super fat then with no tight bends . Much easier to untie

    New Oregon EXL Chain - game changer?

    Ah these are the ones I had a go on on a friend's 550 and seemed a beaut (mentioned in your other post)
  14. kcstevens

    Which is the best?

    I'd say Stihl but I did try the Oregon speed cut or whatever they're called on a friend's 550 and it seemed really good. Not owned one to know about longevity etc etc
