Quick start tree clearing

clearing the road with Stihl quick start

We went over our neighbor's for lunch today and got blocked by a fallen tree.

It was my first time seeing his new Stihl chainsaw with a spring loaded quick start.

I was impressed with what little effort it took to get the saw started. He says the guy he bought it from says the only trouble they have with this type of mechanism is people with muscle memory still wanting to pull like the old style which can break the spring.
