    See, I do use my Stihl 361 Chainsaw

    I cut down 4 poplar trees about 28 inches around and then made fire wood out of them. Had some phone issues so I did not get pics of the cut as expected. But here it is a touch dirty just before i hit it with the air hose and rags. BTW, it looks new again.

    It is evident that you had your saw near where there was some wood cut. Maybe a twig or two...

    Funny. I. Don't understand why you guys have saws that get so nasty? I ran the saw enough to have to fill the bar oil up and go through a touch more than a tank of fuel.

    you must soak your saw in water....



    Seriously tho....you had me feeling guilty the other day. So...I cleaned up my saw. Its not very old and probably has had maybe 5 tanks of fuel run though it. And I have not abused it and sorta keep it clean. But, the light gray plastic is stained ,I guess from the bar oil,my bar is missing paint too.

    Brian have you started your saw or are you using it "manually"?

    I use the saw. I start it, cut trees and sometimes lumber when needed. When I am done, I clean it. I use wd40 to get things clean and I use my air hose to blow out the oil and wood mixture left in the bar area.

    I will take a picture of a pile of wood I cut. About half of its left as we had a nice fire last night and dead poplar burns fast.
