Speaking of 024's I'm about to make my several times a year mecca to one of the local Stihl dealers dead pile .I've done quite well with that activety in the past ,the last is an 024 .

Just a few days ago I helped my wifes cousin cut a big load of ash ,He using the 024 and me with a souped 038 Mag that  runs a like a scalded ape .Poor old Jeff has back troubles and usually uses a Poulan s-25 which is awaiting a new set of seals .The 024 was light enough he could handle it .I'll try to land one for him if the price is right .The little Stihl has a leg up on the little Poulan as far as speed and power .They pep up a little with some creative work on the muffler with a die grinder .They aren't oak slayers but do okay on light firewood cutting ,limbing etc .
