Very corrosive and a skin irritant if you have sensitive skin. Yucca is worse...

That's what plastic cased 029-MS390 type saws are for.  I've talked to tree guys that have a few 'palm saws' put aside for that mess....

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Yep.  A couple beater MS290/455 Rancher type saws would be fine for dealing with the palm/yucca jobs.  Keeps that garbage out of your good saws.
