In this photo there are two oak trees on the left. The larger tree on the far left started dying. A come a along and some rope tied it off to a larger tree to pull it away from the shops. Mr. RTI grabbed the 20 year old chain saw and it would not start so Mr. RTI cut below the first limbs with a Sawzall. Yep a Sawzall. We were afraid to leave the tree up with threats of storms in the area.
Now we have a large tree down in the yard without a working chainsaw this calls for a trip to the hardware store! My favorite store!
We came home with this:
Ryobi lithium 40 volt 14 inch brushless chainsaw...and it rocked! If you buy one of these do not get your lumber jack gear with it. It will take down a tree or two but not clear the back forty with one charge. It charges in a little over an hour and we were quite impressed its power. You will need to buy bar chain oil with it but no other fluid. Just charge and go! You can buy other 40 volt items...like: Weed eater with multiple attachments, pole saw, blower and Lawn more by Ryobi that use the same battery.
And since it was doing a nice job on this tree we decided to take down the smaller on as well....
Fire Pit seating?
Now to find someone that wants firewood.
Have a great one and almost Happy Fall!
