Wow, 79K hits! that's impressive, I would have thought that they might have contacted you about that.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

That saw looks like a real workout to run .

I thought this one was heavy enough to lift up and set on the log for the next cut
Just a Little Lamb , not sure if the 5.8 was cubic inches or hp :

you got that right...when I pick it up with one hand and walk with hit, I'm bent over to one side just to walk, and can't straighten myself up. but when I put it down on a long tree that's already been felled, it cuts through using it's own weight straight down with great eases, just guide it straight and level, and pull the throttle trigger. great for bucking large trees on the ground. terrible to walk around with. forget about felling a tree with it, unless you are Hulk Hogan...it would even tire him out.

It gives you a whole different perspective on those that actually used those on a daily basis.

This is just an observation, and I'm not looking to stir up trouble, but I can't figure how they could have possibly gotten 8hp out of 130cc. Is this a case of exaggerated HP claims or is their some legitimacy to this based on the design of the engine or machine?

Maybe it had something to do with RPM? I know in general 2 strokes turn much faster.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Yep, RPM would have a lot to do with it. Higher RPMs would compensate for lower torque, and visa versa.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Yep , that's what the lil lamb is like , hoist it up for the next cut and it just walks down through the log. My Dad did actually use it for felling trees as well , but he was twice the size of me Once they could afford the newer , lighter saws they got the nod for most stuff. As he got older they would have a local sawmill bring a load of logs in for firewood , the last load he ordered he also paid one of the loggers to block up the logs. The guy used dads stihl , husky , and the old lamb . The guy actually got a kick out of using that old saw.
