go camping a fair bit and usually have a fair bit of room in the trailer for some wood.
the old homelite chainsaw with a 20" bar and it was a bit of a slog to get through anything big not to mention a fuel guzzler
Image

so upgraded to a Stihl Magnum 460 with an 18 and 24" bar which should deal with anything i throw at it

going from to 54cc to 76.5cc not to mention the extra HP from a new engine

Your misunderstanding me..

Absolutely nothing wrong with either saw, but as an upgrade... its like saying you've upgraded from a '65 mustang coupe to a '09 BMW M3.
Both those saws are great, but they have totally different operating parameters and performance levels.. apples and oranges... dont get me started on the differences man seriously. Theres a touch over 50 years in design and operation differences in both your saws.. needless to say, yes a Major upgrade.

Yes, the MS460 absolutley shits on the old Homelite... but wouldnt the M3 shit on the old Mustang Also? See? Apples man.

Theres a time and place for everything..



On a side note... I have done MANY mods to MANY chainsaws...

Before you gon wasting money on "performance" mufflers, or getting ripped off for a chain sharpen, should drop me a line. All is not what it seems.

The chainsaw world is the same as the perfomance world when it comes for people exchanging money for services... mostly bullshit you can learn how to to yourself for a pittance..

Drop me a line before ANY more moves are made.... im even talking about mixing fuel/oil ir buying waaaay overpriced anything. I am talking from experience

P.S

Thanks for the CAD explanation. Knew it would be something like that.
(I won't mention how I prefer my Ozito to my Husqvarna)

Lololol as long as you don't talk down on pre 80's Victa 2strokes, well be fine

Talking of mowers... coming from an era when mowers were not made to be thrown away, and was the first and last mower you ever bought... heres one of my Victa VC's a '73 Auto drive, i can listen to these things idle alll day :)
