Stihl heavy

Stihl chainsaw 039 or 390

When we first started off clearing away the driveway we were using a very small pruning chainsaw because we didn't know any better and funds were limited.

We finally realized the limitations and decided to splurge for a bigger saw. We found a good deal on a much bigger chainsaw through E-bay, and used it to finish clearing the path.

It's a Stihl 039, or what they call a 390 these days. A fine machine, but after it's all said and done I think we would have been better off with a smaller one. It gets real heavy real fast, especially after you've been cutting for a while.

As Willie Nelson would say: "Sthil is still movin' to me!" That actually makes little sense, but the song has been in my head ever since reading your title.

I would guess Mr Nelson is speaking about the inner journey he takes when he decides to sit down and be still for a while.

Willie Nelson is one of the few celebrities I'd like to meet in person someday.
