    A medium sized dead tree snapped during a storm a few days ago. I'm gonna use the bigger pieces as part of my backstop for my 100 yard rifle range when I get to it this summer.

    I love Echo products. I just bought an Echo blower and bought their weed eater last summer.

    For shits and giggles, I got a cheap knock off a couple of years ago to slash an Ash. It was like $150.00 with 2 sized bars and chains.

    Fucking animal!

    That chainsaw and my Echo weed eater have been dead reliable and easy starting for years. Yesterday I couldn't get that fucking saw started for shit. I stored it properly in the Fall but maybe the gas soured or left a varnish. I put fresh in last night with no luck but today it fired up on the 2nd pull. :yes:

    It's that friggin' ethanol. It's killing small tools. Anytime I let my tools sit they never start.

    The arched tree in the background is what I left. It's now a bridge over the creek that something shits on to mark it's territory.

    What's left is massive.

    Seafoam is your friend. I also got a battery hand pump to remove the gas from equipment. It was something like 15 bucks at Walmart.
