What were you running for chain in that video? 3/8 or .325? What rpm?

Here it liked .325 and 15,500 rpm for work.

I have only been running 3/8 and with heat shield on the front and that was working rpm. I cant remember what it was that day in video. Didn't sound right on video.

That redmax actually out cut my best P-5000 at my last ohio gtg I had,  taken 2nd behind a gas race saw 590 in yellow and red. No heat shield and close to 17K  ;) in race set up.

Yes and it is still in good company. Setting right beside the hottest woods ported WORK saw OE 346xp 45cc with domed piston etc from back in the day before the NE. No hot Partner's left, just stock ones now. Getting ready to try a different woods ported topend on a 026 too.  Just love this size of saws.  ;D

It's not like I have to keep it with all the others around, but I really do like that saw size.

Twist my arm hard enough and I could let go.  PM me and let me know whats up ok.

Art / old iron logging, do you remember how many tanks you had put through this redmax 5000 before we traded?

Me and a friend was talking about this redmax yesterday while I was working on his 268xp. He  :-X likes and wants.   :-\

I liked it, but at that time I added 2 more cutters and spent the day operating the porter.

Jonsered is fine, ran it last in Nov. Have to get an uncle 4 cords in early March so will run it then. I don't put 10 gallons per year thru saws now. Getting soft and fat.
