It turns into hoopla and horse chit after a while .They line up on the side lines like a bunch of cheer leaders .

Although it's amusing it gets a little old after a while .

Kind of funny how they carry on about someones work ,bad mouth them and just carry on .Then low and behold through one thing or another try to sell the very saws they've chastised as if they are the greatest things since beer in a can .

Bunch of phoney want to be's . I pretty much take what they say with a grain of salt .  ;)

Been a logger for over 25 years. Cut with ported saws for about 4 months of that time. Owned every pro Husky from 394 down, every Stihl from 088 down. Throw most Partner, Dolmar, Jonsered, Redmax and Efco in there also in that time frame.. 

Left logging last July and went back for six weeks this winter. Did 2 weeks with a ported saw and 4 weeks with a bone stock one.

For me stock is all I have ever needed. Ported are fun for sure but not necessary.

For me, cutting wood is not the greatest job.
Running ported saws makes it a LOT more fun.
Did my azz stay warm when I didn't know what a ported saw was???...........Absolutely!
Does running a nicely ported saw make it a BOATLOAD more fun????.......Damned straight it does!!!
Anyone who hasn't run a well ported saw cannot possibly comprehend!

Back years ago .I mean like at least 30 years ago all we did was pull most of the baffles and called it a day .They cut a lot better although a lot louder .

That was long ago when the 042 Stihl was newly on the market and we could make those Mac PM 610's out run them .Not a big deal just something we did and the Macs were 1/2 a cubic inch smaller in displacement 8 ccs' .

You either enjoy screwing around them or you don't simple as that .Either way,souped or no they all cut wood .

As far as running over the blocks at a GTG ,great fun but it doesn't tell the whole story .Take that puppy to the woods for a day,that tells the true tale . ;)

I just checked that site out .Those folks seem to be more concerned about EPA type wood stoves than high performance chainsaws .

WORD...


hanging on to a saw is work, and I like to do the most amount of work in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of weight...

Oh I think too more often than not if the subject of saw mods arise among a group that don't understand them you often get controversy .

Many people are under the impression that a moderate soup job shortens the life of a saw where in most cases it extends the life .You can't explain that to a person who has no working knowledge of an engine though and it's pretty much a waste of time to try .

I just replied to a post over there where someone posted links to a guy who had a vid on youtube of a before and after port. He shaved 7 full secs off the cut, basically cutting his time in half and the poster was basically trying to point out porting gained this fellow nothing. I said are you crazy man, you don't think that much gain was worth it? I really don't know what planet they are on over there!

Yeah but again you're talking about people that cut a few cords of wood a year and don't comprehend how a saw even works for the most part .Nor do they care for that matter as long as it cuts .It might take them half a day to get a pick up truck full of firewood but they don't seem to mind .

You get on a lot of those forums and half the posters don't even know how to file a chain .They're concerned about trivial stuff like what ratio of oil  in the gas ,40-to 1,45 to 1 or whatever and spend more time arguing the virtues of Amsoil than cutting wood .

I have a couple buds in the tree service biz that don't trust modified saw even though they've seen mine time and again out run them .I'm okay with that .
