Catfish ...
yes, its small, but better than anything u were carrying

remember, its not the size of the saw, but the effort behind it!

I have since replaced me little 8" gerber for a 15" model!

very true..........
Every once in a while we run into large tree's such as Catfish where there no way of pulling it down with gravity or cutting it.
HT and Jungle report those to SOS to get in there with the chainsaws

the new section of trail is sweet! Adam and me got to be the first dirtbikes to ride it.

Join SOS now! they do work hard to keep our trails open! this is the first NEW single track built since 1982!
It was cool to be part of the trail building on the new section of the Kern Canyon trail. The new trail is a fun flowing two miles...Chris, TrailMaven is fitting for you.

here's a pic of the 22" Oregon saw mounted on the 525, for ya Catfish.

here it is on one of my favorite trails in action!
