    Solo here, maybe bring one guy with me. Only time i have another crew is if either I have a landscape project going, or there is a brush clearing job, or something like that going that I can send some of my other guys to on their own.

    You and me both. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Shindaiwa. In fact, I have several Shindaiwa chainsaws and it makes me almost cry that I can't find them any more... Its my favorite brand of anything. Best things I have ever owned period. NEVER EVER had one fail me (except one of those junky blue c4 backpacks). 3000 hours on some of my 230 series engines. I guarantee. Of course I take them a part and clean the carbon, new coils etc.. I'm forced to run them forever and repair them because :cry: they don't make the old stuff which I love anymore.
    When I die, I want to be buried with my Shin stuff.
