first job of the season! took out a couple small trees today. Ended up cutting the one almost completely by had because my chainsaw died. That thing has been to 6 different Husqvarna dealers, had the carb rebuilt/replaced more times that I can count, and it still doesnt run right and no one can figure out why. It's so frustrating. I see a Stihl MS-290 in my future...VERY near future.....

at the dump unloading at the end of the day

they are 285s. I had to trim the bumper and crank the torsion bars so they wouldnt rub. I love how the truck looks with them. they are just so LOUD on the road though! I can't even hear my exhaust over them sometimes, and my exhaust is pretty obnoxious! I would like to save up for a set of BFG all-terrains over the summer.

Truck looks good with them tires on there Mike. I went with 285's bf goodrichs on my truck before the winter. All i had to do was crank my torsion bars up. No trimming at all. My buddy runs a Discount Tire over here so i get them for dirt cheap.

Nope I dont like It for the cuttingI do its not near powerful enough. IT is their best selling saw you are correct! But its usually purchased by homeowners. Ask the dealer. I should have went with my gut and got the bigger one. But you live and learn. I will use this for years to come until I buy another.
