My latest "weapon"
 
4 Attachment(s)
My wife was as excited about this purchase as I was so I had to share it with someone!

Since my old one(25-30 years old) finally stopped I needed a new weapon against a possible zombie attack. I think this should work...

You have to test your weapon right? Make sure it's reliable. Here is the results of it's first outing.

18" bar, the bigger tree I downed today was 16-17" at the base and this thing cut right thru it. I knew the saw I was old but I'm surprised at how much less I'm working to cut things. I was debating between this model and one a bit larger but I think this one will do everything I need it to.

NOTE: I IN NO WAY SUGGEST USING A CHAINSAW AS A WEAPON!!!

Gotta love a Stihl they are the best saws on the planet. I am sure you wouldn't need to sharpen the chain until you killed at least 500 or more zombies.

That MS250 is a great saw lots of power and torque in a light easy to handle package.

When dicing zombies... you don't need chain oil!


BTW: You can drop off the firewood at my house!

IMHO, Stihl is one of the best, if not the best chainsaw out there.

Where I live, there is one paved road in and out, lined with large trees on both sides. I have been meaning to get a good saw for about a year now.

We had a professional tree dropper who lived in the neighborhood. The one time we were blocked in due to a wind storm, he had the road cleared in about an hour and a half. Then he moved and took all his great toys with him. :(

That is a good looking saw and doing a quick Googling I can see that would totally fit both my budget and my needs.

Thanks for the info Spitty.

JD, I think you'd be happy with it. I was originally looking at the MS270 or 280 but after going to the local dealer I discovered they are the same price as the MS310 and basically the same size. After handling the 310 I found it to be more saw then I wanted to handle while cutting up smaller stuff but the 250 didn't bother me. If it keeps cutting like it did yesterday, I'll be happy.

Spitty why didn't you get the manly saw? The MS 880 MAGNUM. 121.6 cc of German engineered Zombie hackin tree eatin man power it takes up to a 59" bar man with that you can cut through at least 4 zombies pressed back to front.

Chain Saws - STIHL MS 880 Magnum™ Chain Saw - Professional Use - STIHL USA


I bought an Echo for the HOA and I like it as well. It is a good say and on any day it takes 2 pulls to get it started no matter how cold or warm it is.

I needed something the wife could handle as well so I had to compromise.
