    I know someone who carries a Silky BIGBOY. Not a saw for anyone who's not secure in their manhood, because it's for sure you are going to get some ribbing on the trail about it.

    Speaking of chainsaws, I recently got the Stihl 2 in 1 sharpening tool:
    https://www.stihlusa.com/products/ch...ools/2in1file/

    Sharpened up a couple of old chains I'd been ready to toss, and it turned them into better than new. I sharpen my chains a lot, but have never found a good way to file the rakers. So after a while, the blades just did not work well. The Stihl tool fixes all of that and adjusts the rakers in a consistent way, and no more work that running a single round file through the cutters. Well thought out tool. I'm just sorry I waited so long to pull the trigger on one.

    That's funny I just got one too and love it! Easy to keep the correct angle, files the depth gauge to the correct depth while sharpening and it's easy to hang onto. I was looking at grinders before I bought this and I'm so happy that I got this instead. During the summer I usually touch up 3 chains a week and this saves me a ton of time. Just make sure you're not trying to use it on a skip tooth chain as it won't work.

    Anyone looking for a VERY light chainsaw that punches way above its weight should check out the Echo CS-2511T. I swear I could fit it in a large pocket and not even need a backpack.[/QUOTE]

    Saw your post and had to have one! 6.6 lbs with scabbard and easily fits inside the main compartment of my older Ogio Baja pack. On the hunt for a pack with larger outside cargo area so I don't give up the internal space. Looking at the new Ogio baja or maybe USWE 15L.

    Ran the Echo 2511T yesterday for the first time. Great little saw and a game changer for being able to carry inside my pack. Easily cuts as large as the 14" bar will allow.

    Quite a few youtube videos of simple/cheap mods that can be done to wring out even more performance although mine seems to run just fine for my needs. Cuts well above it's size and weight as "DosRenshos" pointed out. It's been well received among the pros making a living cutting trees.

    Not the cheapest at $440 OTD (14" bar) Considering how much saw you can get for that kind of money at a Stihl dealer. Looking forward to finally pulling my weight clearing trails this spring!

    I inherited a Stihl ms270 this spring. The buddy who gifted it to me straps his saw on his back bandolero style. I tried that and hated it. Tried it in a pack and hated it. Built a mount for the front. With saw up there I feel like the bars turn quicker. Attachment 41883 I still carry a little folding saw as well. Thanks to everyone who carries a saw. Joe
