    try changing the sprocket on the 441 to a 440 one and you get a lot more speed. Its got plenty of torque to turn it. its my favorite saw.

    You're right.. If they want it they're gonna get it. But I'm not gonna leave it unattended unlocked and make it easy for them.

    Exactly! It just keeps people from grabbing it and running...

    There's one more thing about securing saws. Don't lock down by the front handle. Use to do this myself until I lost the keys. Just stopped and thought for a moment. Grabbed a wrench, unscrewed the 3 bolts holding the frond bar and so much for that.

    Once you consider that some parts of equipment can be easily cut or unscrewed, you realize just how easy it is to snatch them :( .
