I know we call flatheads "stump-pullers" but here's how ya deal with the rest of the tree!

Turn the sound up.

That was fun and I turned the sound way up. Being a bit of a VL nut I really enjoyed the sound of that motor working. Thanks Kev!

Back in the early 70's, in Washington state, a bunch of loggers I knew had HD driven chain saws and they would compete in log cutting speed events. Talk about slicing wood quick !! I was really impressed.

The tank is for both oil and fuel, just like the original VL. I met the one on the chain side once. Very nice man.

Hi Kev,

Would be much healthier with a V8!!!!
