Racing chainsaws ! Sounds dangerous ! Where do you mount the seat !   ;D

To give you a idea. Stock appearing muffler saws on nitro up to 30% I knew of and alky not for firewood cutting. Piped saws is Hotsaws on same fuels basically with less nitro added.

Dont look like Jerry Gingras made it due to STS today and my guess of Mike Eash not traveling by himself? Least I havent seen him in video.  That  would allow some 2 new faces  to slide up for those top 6 spots for Sunday. 

Nate your hotsaw run looked good against Matt? Did you get a time or was 2nd cookie thin?
Title: Re: Chardon OH video
Post by: jred on April 30, 2011, 11:27:07 pm
I must have been close to the finals, Matt made it and I didn't.  I did get a time.  I'd like to get a redo of the day.

Post by: Cut4fun on May 01, 2011, 09:42:49 am
Nate not that it matters. I slowed the video down and watched it piece by piece. You were in the wood first out of first cookie first  but Matt caught you  3rd cookie and came out of that cookie before your 3rd cookie.  Just so you know what I seen.  2 super fast saws built just alike and 2 very good young operators.  You did good.

For those who have not seen the type competition  that is at Chardon I've said many times before it could be just a slight fraction of a second difference .

Say I did get an invite but because of circumstances couldn't make it .Maybe again some day .Did it once and can say I did run with the best in the country--once . ;D

From the looks of it right now, it doesn't  look like they will be racing in the snow this year. Might need some sun burn protection though. 

Anyone receive their invites yet?

Be nice to see the numbers get back up there per event. Remember when they used to have 20 or so competitors per event.  Maybe with gas prices down folks will travel to race again.

It was invite only. But I noticed this year a invitation link was online.  The numbers are so down there from what I saw the past years in videos and results.
Used to be 15-22 per class. Now lucky to get 6-8.

The lumberjack@maplefestival.com is not a good address.
To contact the lumberjack group you must use the info@maplefestival.com address.
I just inquired and found this bit of information. I've been down and out since 2011
with some issues and looking forward to getting back to traveling again. Hope to see those I know
and meet some new competitorsthis year.  Till then Take Care and best wishes for a great year.

Just going by what Luc told me and after rereading it your right. No hotsaws by him. 

He said he had 3 4 5 there and all qualified.  One of the guys had a coil go on another saw.
Says he didnt bring his pipe saws. Something about one of the operators being new.   Guessing 5ci pipes?

I know who built their hotsaws now. A new name to me. Going to make sure alright to post first.


Title: Re: Chardon OH Maple Festival
Post by: Cut4fun . on May 01, 2019, 08:27:14 am
The Canadians hotsaws they were running. Got the OK  to post builder,  Husky hotsaws was by  Rémi Gagnon. 

Luc said he has one he built and going to be trying it out and hopes it makes a trip back down next year.

I remember alot of different spelling up that way when running around in late 80's. Not in the French providence though. 

Lot of words with U in them we dont use too.   

The Zed28 used to crack me up with my car guys up that way.  Squeeze left or right on roads.   

I remember the tax was crazy high even back then.  City, providence, country on things you buy. Just know it had 3 taxes listed.
