    would it also work as a redirect? if you were to clip the second tie to a different anchor point.

    on a side note, maybe you know, some tree types can be every detrimental to garden health. once know a lady who mulched her garden with cedar chips, not much would grow after that.

    I would suggest building a screening deck to separate the chips by size, one small enough to use atm and the rest through in a pile to rot for a few years first.

    nice site! love the pictures you have a double post in the testimonial page I would put phone number and email front and center under your nav links, don't see it up top very well. maybe not the email but phone number for sure N.H. counties where is that? maybe type it out long form at least once, people from the area might know where that is but you're on the world wide web now :) the math question to send you a message a has no explanation I always like to see a physical address some were, if you are running out of your home just put city, state, country. cheers, zayen

    Impressive to say the least ! I too, am wondering this, by watching the video over it looks like the lines were more dynamic then a standard bull line... were they climbing lines perhaps? I am thinking the extra stretch would help "absorb" some of the difference and help with the shock load forces.

    a thought, i would hang the silks from one anchor point, not by running them through two as it would change the over all feeling. thinking SR vs DR here.

    pre drill holes for the lags to avoid splitting the rafter, drill bit should be as big as the lag under the threaded part. to check hold drill bit over lag, you should see all the thread but very little of the core. hope that makes sence, sorry if you knew 8)

    hoping someone can break it down to simple steps for me, I have done searches but would like some clarification on a couple things one being that i understand the three adjustments screws are High, Low and idle. so LA i adjusted warmed up but no throttle, until the chain starts moving then dial it back until it stops, High I adjusted at full throttle moving it around until it sounded the best, moving it one way then backing it off, but how and when do i move the L- screw? the reason for this retune is the weather has dropped 10 c in the last month and I just don't feel like its putting out the same power as it did, bought the saw in the spring and probably has around 300 to 400 hrs... is there any mile stone maintenance or replacements I should be doing? ie air filters... thanks in advance for any advice for this "new" saw owner (as in first time with new saws and owning them myself )

    dehydration affects not only your muscles as in they don't react as fast or as precise but also your cognitive functions, basic problem solving skill and reaction time are all affected. it just reminded me of a trick i used in the past, when feeling tired, do a couple math problems in your head, if its hard to find the right answer... you're fatigued, take a break, eat, drink, grab some shade...

    wise words for sure, ya i am trying to get used to running my saws in my right hand, balance is a bit odd holding a saw left handed, but some times i need the confidence or precision of using my dominant hand.

    so I cut myself with my 201 today, will show you the picture first as it was very minor. I was cleaning up two maples that had come down in the wind, finished number one in a hour or so and was feeling good, forgot my water at home but that's ok... i would be done in another hour or so. moved on to the second one, took longer then i thought. so now we are looking at 12:30pm with nothing but two cups of coffee in me, and that little voice said "stop grab some water" did not listen, i was almost done right?, and hopped up on the downed log to cut some cedar branches that were pinned under the trunk, on the third or fourth cut i slipped, stumbled, shifted, and spun my right hand to regain balance and just like that felt my finger hit my chain, got lucky and was just finishing a cut so no full throttle. i write this just to get it off my chest ( it's not a bad injury but still... I hit myself with my saw... ) and to maybe remind everyone to listen to that little voice, he's right you know? ps now that my saw has tasted blood, do i sell it or have it put down humanely?

    he should have moved the wood pile, i am sure that's what caused the dutchman, could have cut higher too... maybe haha when the popping and cracking starts at sec 36 he should have seen that his hinge was wrong and taken another look on the opposite side of the tree. it's a good reminder to clear your workspace and never stop looking around and up the tree

    talked it over with some of the local saw guys and we are thinking I either had a big cip that I didn't clear before putting the filter back or didn't seat it properly before putting the case back on, as the case does not screw on but is just a quarter turn latch. it has not happened since then but will be keeping an eye on it.

    so I have had my 201tc for a month or so and am loving it, great little saw. BUT today i was using it and was noting a lot of fine sawdust was getting past the air filter and even collecting inside the carb. I washed with mixed while holding the saw so gas would not flow into carb. I was cutting fir mill ends so more bark than wood, wondering if I should worry about this or just know that cutting that kind of wood will do this to a saw
