Never seen or heard of it.  Being I'm not so smart I need to ask, I take it you just use handles to screw it into tree?

Who makes it and what do they cost? Where would I look into one down here?

It is a great little tool. Works nice when felling a frozen tree that splits a regular wedge out and tree settles back on your blade. Just screw the miracle wedge in and your good to go.

I sell them at the shop. I think you can only get them in Canada. Not cheap however.

Matter fact I wanted 325 on a 55 set up with 3/8. Popped clutch off and switched in a min or less. Now I dont think I would have the tools to do that in the woods like a inboard though.
Just a foot long stick of wood and a scrench is all you need. Back in the early 1980s I was field testing Oregon's [new then] radial port rim sprockets at work. I had to carry spare rims in my pocket because these new prototypes would break chunks out of them every so often. I got good at knocking the outboard clutch off my Jonsered 630 by sticking the spark plug socket of the scrench on the clutch nut with the screwdriver horizontal on right side of nut [left hand thread] while the saw sat on the stump.
I'd then whack the srewdriver end with a heavy short stick and the clutch would spin off easily. To re-tighten the clutch, just screw it on finger tight, rev up the saw WOT and apply the chain brake. Total process took about a minute.

You never got pinched in a felling cut, or you were always lucky when you dropped the tree?
I have pinched my saws in felling cuts many times over the years, but never had to pull the powerhead off.
 In the bigger diameter trees that sit back on the b/c I always was able to get a wedge in enough to release the saw. In the small diameter trees I could always find a pole or dead chicot and push the tree over.
When logging the skidder was always nearby.

Yes, the wedge or a push pole work most of the time. Getting the skidder for me is a poor option. I work by myself, cutting from about 7 AM until around 2PM, then start the forwarder. I would have to drive my pickup out to the landing, start the machine, let it warm up, etc. (I make nice roads, less walking and landowners love them.) You never have to pull off the powerhead. But if you are by yourself and you push over the tree with the skidder, you can't be there to pull the saw to safety. When you have somebody else there to push with the skidder, and the tree is rotten or has a heavy side lean, you still can't be sure where it will go. Taking off the powerhead is a precaution. The expensive powerhead is in a safe place, the bar and chain are much less vulnerable to damage when detached.

Niko have you run your MS361 and 560xp back to back with same type chains to give a unbiased opinion yet?

Now be sure to remove your beer goggles and run same type chain 3/8 and gears 7T or 8T on both and let us know.

I have planned to do something like that when I have had a hip replaced (hopefully this winter), and the 560 is decently run in - but at the moment I am not able to run a saw for real at all!
