It is an option to consider, though my father in-law using my 435 gets on great doing the job. It’s on a 15” with new bar and chain. It’s maybe just something I’ll need to admit to not being able to do anymore. Promote myself to winch remote operator and move on maybe 😂
I’m only limbing for own use firewood and to allow me to forward the trunks to an access sight for onward processing by a firewood supplier. Due to a back injury I’ve very little forearm power on either side so I researched ways to aid my work, more pronounced bumper spikes would apparently give me more bite through the bark to let the saw get purchase to work without the necessity for me to have to add much downforce myself. Long winded but that’s the reason I joined, to get an insight into how others approached ‘upgrading’. Safe to say it sounds like I’m up a creek without a paddle on the upgrading front.
Haha Wow, thanks. I’m not looking to ‘pimp’ my chainsaw. I’m logging fallen and mature trees and getting slip due to the heavier bark and scuffing the front of the bodywork. I’m looking for more bite into the timber through the bark, without having to bark strip every log cut. I’m a little disappointed I had to justify my choice to modify my own saw. The ‘experts’ don’t cut you much slack on here.
