Wow! It's night and day between the chain you walk out of Home Depot with and a properly sharpened chain. This 120 buck chain saw is a lil monster now. I am so happy you jerk offs were able to guide me in the right direction once again!

OP, I'm hearing good sense from you. You mention both Oregon and Baileys. Both solid suppliers of saw sundries. I have equipment from both. Glad your new chain is kicking wood. Keep it in the wood. Eventually you can take that nose gaurd off, but I'd give it a solid season or two. When you get into bigger wood, the gaurd can hinder you. In the mean time it will help you in one piece.

Yeah. The nose guard stays on. I'm not a pro and don't want to lose my toes.

Just remember, saw chains donít cut flesh, they tear it.

Where is a good place online aside from Amazon to buy chaps, gloves, helmet, etc.?

I have some bigger dead trees that I need to fell that I was going to hire someone to do but I think I might get the proper gear and study and do it myself.

With your username, I don't know, man.

Might want to rethink things.

you should be able to get chaps at Placerville Polaris and Power Tool, they carry Husqvarna.

If not I got my in Pollock at Camino Power tool.
they are not all the same. some are thicker than others

I use a standard Stihl brand for my everyday firewood cutting. I have had them 10 years and use them all the time (20 plus times per year) and they still look good.

I have a heavier pair (more Kevlar fibers) that I use when doing volunteer work in the Forest as they have a specific requirement.

Wow, what a crowd. Clearly none of you have ever tried to work with ash wood. I don't care which one it fucking is, the shit is hard as fuck and I bet it dulled every fucking chain dude throws at it.

I tried a woodworking project with some once and after it taking four h a bunch more times longer to do anything with I gave up. May as well be stone. Almost.

There's something wrong with your saw.

It's cutting it fine now that I sharpened the chain correctly. It is harder to cut than the soft stuff in my yard but that's how shit works.

If I am doing a lot of cutting I will touch my blade up throughout the day. Not a full sharpen but knock the burr off before its an issue sharpen. If it stops throwing 'ribbons' its time for a touch up. But I like to let the saw cut. And I keep spare chains on hand.

Only takes 5 minutes to touch up if you don't kill it.

As far as chaps- anything is better than none. I have never had a close call, but still wear them. Kinda like safety glasses, the only time you need them is when they are protecting your head not your eyes.

Any landscape place/HD should have a set of chaps in stock.

Ear and Eye pro are a must as well.

Keep an eye out on CL for a brand new 'not running' saw for cheap. you can upgrade to a nice saw for pennies if you are willing to watch you tube videos and fix it yourself.

Lots of good (and bad) info on how to fell trees. kinda a listen to what others say and use your judgement. no two trees will fall the same way. Takes time to learn to read them.

Can you use an anchor point and a come a long to help pull the tree in the direction you want along with the proper cutting? I am not running outside to try this shit so don't worry.

You can do anything - at least ONCE.

If pulling a tree, you want to be able to out run it, so a come a long is not ideal. If you want to load a tree it can be done, but with out seeing it would not recommend. It can go bad FAST.

I have directed more than one tree, if it comes to that I feel that it is better to be lucky than good. Because honestly its a crap shoot.

That being said, I have always gotten lucky (thus far) But def an acquired luck.

If I need to direct a tree. Its a snatch block and a truck with about 150í of rope. And then your driver need to be paying the fuck attention or it can make it worse.

OK. So I have dead trees behind my house that are threatening to fall on my house. Here is the link to the youtube video of the trees from my drone. I am not a cinematographer so fuck off with complaints about jerkiness or whatever. Any advice would be helpful.

Who owns that field? if there is not fence there that you have to worry about crushing, I'd ask the land owner if you can fell the trees onto his side away from the house. That would be easiest/safest. Looks like he has some young corn growing but I doubt those trees would even make too far on to his property. Chop them up and clean up nicely/with out damaging his crops. If he says "no" then next best would be to cut them so they fall parallel to your backyard.
