You are right Kevin. Even if you have disabilities, there's exercises you can do sitting down. You have to be committed and confident that you're able. No more fear and excuses. God bless you from Kingston, Ontario Canada

Good choice - sounds just like my hubby's which Dad bought for him 10-years ago. When working on serious timber you honestly do need a decent, reliable machine - after all chainsaws can easily turn into killers should they snag or bind, and no amount of safety dancing could get you out of that sticky wicket!! Very funny, hopefully will stick in folks' heads - I'll ask Hub if he's seen that new fuel tank, looks very helpful. The homestead is looking seriously gorgeous now it's nearly summer... Stay safe (& sane!)

Back when I was a drinking man, the liquor store I always went to had tip books, you bought a line for 1 dollar. I never win anything but one time I won a chain saw. shame I stopped drinking hard telling what home tools Id have by now. lol

Have a shirt that says the same as yours Kevin. Also, is there someone or something in between tree trunks behind you. I can also see red caterpillar man behind you, unless that’s your chair way out there behind you. While keeping you six, there’s quite a bit going on behind you in the tree line & I see one of those invisible thinks to your left at the end of the tree trunk. Be careful. They may know your alone right now. I hope they do not know Dearly & your son are on vacation. I heard them say something @ 19:40.

I love hearing your background backyard noise, especially Mr. Backup. His name reminds me of my mother’s way of naming critters. She grew up outside of Cumberland (Appalachia) and I grew up on the Virginia/West Virginia line. We had a cat named White Girl who hooked up with Old Man, a tail-less cat who hung out at our local country convenience store on the other side of the train tracks. White Girl had a litter of kittens born without tails. We kept one and called him Fat Boy. We also had another cat called Crooked Head because he bit into an electrical cord that shocked him and left his head forever sideways and crooked... chin pointed at 4 o’clock permanently.

O ya. Kevin I have the Husqvarna 371xp saw with 32 inch bar thats now 21 years old. Drain gas and run it dry and it will definitely last you a long long time!!! Mine still screams!!!

Great chainsaw Kevin. I own 3 husky saws from the XP professional husqvarna to the smaller ones. Just make sure the chain oiler is working. They had problems with those. Mine didn't work either on the smaller 2 saws. Not sure if the 355 Rancher has the oil adjuster screw. You'll love that saw

We have a small engines store/shop, you got a good chain saw there. The gas now a days has a lot of ethanol in it so it gums up carbs. Try to keep that from happening with high test gas and Star tron gas treatment that stops the ethanol from pulling water out of the air

I have the Husky 455, and it's great. I also have a Stihl MS-361, which is garbage. It failed after less than 40 hours with a broken crankshaft. It was so hard to start that I could have exerted myself less using a hand saw. Stihl doesn't support their products!

I'd like to see a book by you about your life experiences in the land of which you met your wife Dearly aka "Giggly Girl" . You could title it Down and out in the Philippines, the Kevin "Crazy" Lake memoir. Just a thought, and if you do write this book feel free to use that title for it.

Be careful Kevin about dispensing gasoline off the back of your truck, static discharge could ignite the gas....I would put up a few Cinder blocks for safety. Those are cool gas can's!!! Kevin , don't feel bad about buying something You need...that was a good investment!!! God Bless You Brother!!! I Got Your Six👍

I'm so happy you're getting better equipment!! Now I won't have to listen to my husband complain!!! Every time he comes in the room if I'm watching one of your videos, I have to hear him yelling, " Why dosen't that guy get a real chainsaw!!!" or "Why dosen't that guy get a log splitter!!!" Now, I'll only have to listen to, "Why dosen't that guy get a zero turn!!!" LOL. Well, he'll know that that's not going to happen any time soon because you just bought a new battery for your small lawnmower!!! He did say that the Husqvarna is the best brand out there right now. So he is very impressed with your choice!! He's got all sizes, but he uses them in his business as they do alot of tree removal and land clearing!!

I'm sure the new chainsaw will do a fine job cutting that white pine tree. That's a nice machine. My father used a Husqvarna that he used to cut trees in the spring and early summer during the 80's and 90's from 40 acres of woods he owned that was about 10 miles from home. He would return home with a truck load of cut logs for my brother and I to stack. Before winter we'd transfer most of those logs into the basement where we had a wood burning stove. That wood stove kept us warm during the winter months and our family rarely used the electric vents saving on electricity. Sadly, that stove is no longer used as my father sold the 40 acres and no longer cuts wood due to his health(type 2 diabetes).
