    So would you say you're a professional lumberjack or a lumberjack enthusiast?

    In all seriousness, i’m just an average man with above average capabilities, resources, and skill level to process wood and make it disappear fairly quickly. Whether the trees are standing or already been fallen. It is quite physical to do. Ain’t nothin more honest that digging a hole or splitting firewood.

    My buddy from high school moved to Oregon from Texas and became a lumberjack and a fireman. Seems y'all have some kind of magic trees or something out there haha

    That's quite a lifestyle change from texas to oregon lumberjack. I do live out in a rural area where i do have to watch out for logging trucks. My parents also have quite a few acres of timber, so i forgot about that as well.

    I always liked the 260s for size to power/capability - Yellow strap is definitely the way to go haha, no safety chain. We use those stihl light bars at work some, they seem to be just as good as the standard ones. I just ordered some parts to rebuild an old 201 I've got laying around today. Been looking at buying a big saw to try some milling too, but hard to stomach the prices of new ones.

    I’m really liking my 261 so far. From an aesthetic standpoint, i like the looks of the 260 better. The 261 looks a bike to modern to me....BUT, since it has more power than a 260, i can totally live with its looks. I’d like to get a top handle saw (like a 201), but i don’t think i would utilize its potential very often. My local Stihl dealer usually give me a deal on new saws, but with the current price of a big Stihl 880 (for milling), it might just cost less to keep buying crappy 2x4s from homo depo.

    I think i’ve finally pulled out the last of my wood from the property i’ve been at. I have about 20 cords splits and stacked at my house. And guess what?...my back is still 100% fine! My left bicep is still a bit sore, but it should heal up fine in a month or so.

    In the pic, the rear bumper is completely sitting on the ground. Though it doesn’t look like it, but the hill is quite steep driving back out of the gully. The truck and trailer was loaded down with wet fir and oak. It must have been some sight for others to watch the truck driving down the highway at 50mph triple towing with that log splitter hanging off the back.

    Yeah 880s are crazy expensive. And the chances you really need one are slim enough that it's usually worth it to just take more time with the 660 I've found. Every once in awhile we get a 60"+ flush cut though, and then you wish you had one. Thanks for linking that thread, I'll check it out!

    Triple tow with the loaded down rig is awesome, by the way.

    There was no “just throwing it up in the trailer”. Supposedly the shipping weight of the splitter is 525lbs. I did wrassle the front end of the splitter hitch up into the trailer, then tried lifting the whole back portion of it. The only place to lift was the rear portion of the I beam tray. And since it’s already located about waist high, i could only get the I beam about chest high. I would have had to lift the whole shooting match over the top of my head in order to get the tires high enough in the air to get it onto the tailgate. I was fairly close to a friend’s house, so two of them came over and the three of us humped it up into the bed.
