Oh, seems the Aussies have a more polished, easier to handle version.

Still, it's just cutting wood.

My 'neighbors' just up the road in Deming have it all wrapped up.

Pretty cool, but when is Coke considered beer?

Maybe it was lost in the translation . . . . . . . .
Yeah, I think it's a matter of either it's vodka or it's not. "Beer, coke, whad'z difference, eh?"

Gee, I took my wife down to Whitfield for afternoon tea on Sunday. If I had hopped over the hill to Whitlands I could have tried out the V8 chainsaw myself!
The company makes a range of wood splitters and stuff.
Whitlands doesn't even rate as a village, it is just a few houses in a secluded valley. The population must double when the men turn up to work!
Another member of the family runs Burder Industries here in Wangaratta - making all sorts of tractor attachments: backhoes, frontend loaders, grader blades, etc etc etc.
They are obviously a very talented and enterprising family.

The Chainsaw itself is made of a standard model 75B Black and Decker chainsaw
Everyone knows that Black and Decker chainsaws are notoriously unreliable. The better choice would be Sthil.

I swear by them.

I wouldn't waste my , no, your money on anything but. Not even worth using to beat a zombie with. And you know it ain't gonna start on the first pull.

Or the twentieth.

Nope, nothing but Sthil equipment in my anti-zombie arsenal.

Sav, you might want one, but my point was that Jean obviously spends a LOT of time trawling the interwebby thing looking for who knows what - and finding it!
