    And thats why I picked up a propane generator.


    GW, I've been looking at those, whaddya got, and how well does it fit your needs? I'm no Paul Bunyan, but I do live in the woods and occasionally need to cut up some decently sized stuff.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    There's lots of places to get ethanol free fuel.. I don't understand why folks that have problems with it, keep putting in service with engines that aren't designed for it's use. There are more than a few high test fuels easily available that are ethanol free.

    I picked up a cheapo 16" on sale from Harbor Freight, figured if it didn't work I hadn't lost much. On the down side, the trigger is in a bad place and stiff. Hard to keep it held down when you start contorting. On the plus, it cuts as well as a gas saw. Came with a standard Oregon bar and chain. For the number of times I need it, t does the job very well. In fact, I just used it last week to drop a 30' 14" diameter dead tree and cut it up. Piece o cake.

    Had been getting it at the local marinas, but it seems to not keep them running as well.

    Not here. We've got the marinas and that is all.
