Stihl 034
« on: July 20, 2008, 10:56:40 PM »
I quit using my 034 since I bought the 440 a year or two ago so I got the old saw out so for kicks and figured I'd cut a load of firewood.  Before I started, I threw a new 20" bar on and a new full comp chisel chain and started cutting.  I had forgotten how much grunt the saw has and I flew threw a load a wood in no time at all.  It was actually kind of fun cutting with it since I hadn't used it for so long.  I think I bought the saw around 85' and it is still a darn good saw.  Anyone else still run a 034?

Not an 034 but I ran 036's for 10 years while I had a logging business.  I dropped, limbed and bucked logs with those 036's and they ran awesome.  I still have my original 036, just put the third clutch in it but haven't even ever had to do the rings or piston.  Amazingly tough saw!
