  • Favorite Saw

    Wondering what everyone is using for a saw to process tent stove firewood. I prefer the 30" Bob Dustrude Saw. Fast, lightweight, and can be used as a 2 man with the right operators. I always carry 2 blades.

    I really like my modified Bob Dustrude 30" saw. I must admit I have the 21" and the 24" as well.

        Chalk up another mark for the Dustrude 30ā€ here, but I must admit to being curious about the Agawa Canyon saw too. Iā€™d like to try one of those...

        For summer Boundary Waters trips I carry a Silky BigBoy 2000. I love that saw.

        Here's the Dustrude in action...

            What can I say, I'm easy to buy for.

              I picked up a bear essentials co. saw last winter. I really like it. The storage bag is also awesome since it holds your axe as well.

                    I have a buddy with a large Silky Katana Boy. For me, it took a bit to get used to, but certainly threw sawdust. Processing limbs, precarious trees, downed timber it really shines.

                      I have the same, love it! Have never tried a Dustrude, but for most sawing I have an Agawa Canyon with a Sydney Rancher blade that works very well.

                        My favourite saw is a coarse cut carpenters handsaw. Specifically the Irwin Marathon ProTouch. I have it in 24" currently, but I started out with the 20" version. I like it for the reason, that it is one piece, blade is not under tension, cuts reasonably straight, affordable and generally available at most big box home improvement stores or the local hardware store.

                        Here are a couple videos I made of my winter wood processing tools and the saw in action.





                        Cheers

                          A note. The 30" Dustrude saw can be run like a 2 person cross cut. A bit of practice, and that saw eats wood with 2 people running it!Click image for larger version  Name:	16602778_10210554052102063_4531221414239833537_n.jpg Views:	0 Size:	100.0 KB ID:	472

                            Bob Dustrude 30" for the win! I use the non-raker tooth blade as I'm normally into dry softwoods. I think the one on right now is a vintage Sandvik blade I found somewhere; it works very well.
