Recently I bought a chain saw. Now advertising for chain saws miraculously appears on my screen when I visit various websites. How smart is it, trying to sell me a saw when I've just bought one? They should be pitching bar oil, chains, chain sharpeners, and two cycle oil.
Electronic message boards put up by banks and other businesses are sometimes programmed well, but usually not. Time and temperature are the bait that gets eyeballs. Some programmers don't use enough bait, and soon regular passers-by tune them out. Most of the audience for those signs is in cars, but the signs are programmed for stationary readers. If I'm driving by in my Model T at 30 mph, you have from five to seven seconds to give me a message I can read. If it goes on, and on, and on, I may see two or three words of it. If it's in fancy animated dancing letters, maybe one word.
Steve read your warrentee paper work and remember,if there is a issue,they test the fuel at a repair center and if over 40 days old,you are out of warrenty.Not being noisey but what did you get?
My next saw will be a Solo,made in germany.I bought a used 1 recently and I love it.
The old fellow took his new chain saw back to the dealer to complain that he wasn't satisfied with it after cutting a few dozen trees down with it. The dealer started it up and the old fellow said "What's that noise?"
Steve, I hope you bought a EPA approved chainsaw
The ads are from the same company you bought from? That would really be odd. (Possibly) little known fact on 2 cycle oil: Did you know they are rated and the rating is voluntary? Look at your container. It might have a letter designation surrounded by a cartouche or oval. Last time I looked Red Max was the highest with an F rating. I don't think A & B are even made anymore. They were for low HP/low revolution engines like older scooters. The higher the rating the better the oil. Again, last time I looked Echo brand oil wasn't rated.
Jay, OSHA says you better take that chain off of there, something could get cut on it.
Mack, I want a Solo next, too. They are a close cousin to the Dolmar. Here is my mildly worked over Dolmar 7900 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5KlNiZZNbI
Doug, Here's the OSHA approved chainsaw
You need an armored wrist and forearm guard so when you have a chain fly back you don't get wood cutter fracture. SNAP!
Steve: You posted about Banks reminded me of a Bank that was next to the motel I stayed at in IL when going to a T auction. Did not have Time and Temp on sign. Something more important, Price of Pork, corn and beans.
I was the executor of my father's estate. I opened an account in Chase Bank in the name of the estate. Sometime later I received a form letter from the bank:
"Dear Estate of Gilbert W. Fitzhugh:
We would like you to discuss your future retirement options with one of our professional investment advisers. - - - "
