Buy Used Logging Equipment
Finding used logging equipment for sale is fairly easy to do. Finding the best deal for that perfect log skidder might be a little more difficult. Used logging equipment can be in fairly good shape or extremely worn out. It is difficult to tell if a log loader or skidder has been well maintained from a picture on the internet.

Stihl vs Husqvarna
Stihl vs Husqvarna is to loggers as Ford vs Chevy is to racers. Talk to 10 random loggers and you will find about a 50/50 split between those who prefer Stihl chainsaws and those who prefer Husqvarna chainsaws.

What is the Stihl fuel mix ratio for my chainsaw?
The Stihl fuel mix ratio for all Stihl two stroke engines is 50:1. That is 50 parts gas to 1 part two stroke oil mix. This is the oil ratio that is recommended by the manufacturer. Older Stihl chainsaws may require a thicker fuel to oil ratio mix.
