Big Saw. Big Trees. Big Plans

Stihl 661 and a very happy man of the woods.

I have now fulfilled a boyhood dream of owning a very large chainsaw! Thank you very much to Hayes Garden Machinery, based in South Molton, and Josh Smith for their service and help in me purchasing this saw. Hayes Garden Machinery offer a wide range of tools and machinery, from chainsaw & hedge cutters to ride on mowers, with a superb servicing and parts department. Contact them on: 01769 579862 or visit them at: North Aller Business park, Unit 3,  South Molton, EX36 3RF.

This is the first purchase from the money granted to me from the Exmoor Society for winning the Pinnacle Award this year. A massive thanks goes to the Exmoor Society for their assistance and belief in me and my vision. For more information on the Pinnacle and my success please see my previous posts and visit the Exmoor Society Website.

This Stihl MS 661 is the machine that will power my milling activities on Exmoor. Not only that but it will now allow me to tackle even larger trees in the future, with this 36″ bar and chain, opening up greater possibilities for milling. This saw will work in partnership with my Logosol Big Mill Pro, which I am expecting shortly and eager to use, where I will then be able to offer a portable chainsaw milling service to Exmoor and the surrounding area.  This is a fantastic machine and I’m sure will serve me well in the coming years.
