Wink Trying not to get too cut up over things!

Actually, I'm rather pleased with my small chainsaw.



I had bought the larger 58v version last month, using it to cut up these logs & then I received a phone call to say it had to be recalled (again) because a faulty component had made it into the production run, but besides the free battery to compensate for having to exchange it, I was also personally given the above. It's a great 12" chainsaw (having tested it on these logs too) & will get used around my place as well as the larger 16" one, but I had posted this photo on their FB page being delighted in its performance & the NZ branch loved my photo enough to want to use it in the future & I feel honoured they want to.

Anyhow, I have a fair bit of work ahead of me to finish cutting up & stacking that lot of wood (a lot more than the photo shows).

Great photo, I can see why they would want to use it.

Ross, that's a great 'AD Shot' - 'Product in context'. Anyway with winter coming not a bad result.

Yes, I've gone battery for most of my tools now (between AEG & Ryobi, both from TTI). I still have a Stihl (pun intended) petrol chainsaw, but I doubt I will use it much now. The petrol mower has been languishing in the shed for at least three years now having used a Ryobi 36v mower but now complimented with the AEG 58v mower to better handle the thicker grass in the backyard.

Hopefully all powered by solar?!

Don't forget to ask for a credit with the photo, which is excellent, "Ross the Fiddler"?

Re: Trying not to get too cut up over things!

You're supposed to have a license to use a chainsaw in Ontario these days. Soon you'll be required to get a license before you can use a knife and fork.

Actually I suppose a small electric chainsaw would be the ideal type for the landscape shooters camera bag.

According to the reports on the "gardening" that Eric Hosking did around bird nests. etc., he probably had one with him.

Thanks. I guess I better get the chimney sweep out so I don't send flames up the flue.

Thank you for your kind consideration. I have wondered whether it's worth it for the little I do, but maybe I should check out some options.

Unfortunately, I have yet to invest in solar power.

Don't suggest it to our pollies, they might think it a great idea for a good source of extra revenue.

He may have been a pioneer of bird photography but I suspect some​ of his 'techniques' would be frowned upon these days.

I'm persona non grata on a couple of nature photo forums after questioning the ethics of some members. The welfare of the subject should always come first.
