Electric Chainsaws

I had never heard of an electric chainsaw till my uncle got one for Christmas a couple years ago, he loaned it to us when a tree came down on the old home place and Tony fell in love with the electric saws. Me? No I prefer the old gas chainsaws, bigger and cuts more. I used this new one today but not much, Tony wanted to cut and let me drag because he is still getting his strength back from fighting cancer. We cut and I piled up several truck loads. Tomorrow evening after work I will pull them to the edge of the property to dry out, if need be I can use it to burn, if not it`ll rot. That was what work I did this evening, how was your day?

We have 2 electric chainsaws here. My boyfriend gave me one to use to cut the wood for sculpting. They are nice. You just have to make sure to pump them for the oil.

@andriaperry Did you push the button when you were using it? My boyfriend use to remind me of this all the time. He would even go behind me to make sure I pushed the button when I was using it to give it oil. That why I was joking around with you on this one.

You are right the gas chainsaws are more powerful, it's the same with the push lawn mower.

@andriaperry I do not want one either, they are slow and if the grass is too high they do not work.

I am thinking of buying some sort of saw to cut down the crepe myrtles at the back... We hired some tradesman to come removed those 2 times now. (They grow back!)

@andriaperry Two have done something to the side fence the last decade or so. Another one suddenly popped up, also at the fenceline, but in the front. Their flowers are beautiful, but between the fence and them, the crepe myrtles have to go. (The old neighbor did complain bitterly about them quite a few times before they moved away. We did hire people to remove the trees twice & re do the fence but it happens again now.)

Did some fast cleaning and then school all day. I did make supper hmm and did some laundry. Debating on what to do tomorrow. Yes we have gas chainsaws, my mom and hubby hates the electric ones. My mom is 73 and still handles them like they are nothing.

I think its all in what you were raised with, like your mom. I wanted the gas BUT.... I have to get this place cleaned up but I will work inside when the rain comes next week and try to get as much done outside as I can.

@andriaperry I do the inside during school breaks weekdays and at night if I have the energy. Weekends is normally outside. We still have some to do outside to get ready for the winter. Need to get Tessas trampoline down and things like that. Not a lot to do there.

We used to pick out the trees in our woods that needed to be culled and cut for fire wood. The men did the cutting and the splitting and we women put the wood into the trailers that took it to our houses. It was fun but HARD WORK...
