    Has anyone ever seen one of these? It's a hydraulic driven chain saw.

    I have mixed emotions on this one, all the hindrance of an electric cord with the heat & danger of hydraulics (just for fun).

    I have seen them, I think we even sell a model or two. You don't bog them down too easy.

    I have heard of them, but never seen one. I don't think that would be for me. Not nearly portable enough for my tastes.

    They're used for clearing brush and small trees low to the ground w/out bending over. Kinda like a DR trimmer on steroids.

    That's some interesting stuff. I suppose if you already have an air compressor and other pneumatic tools for your business, that would be a sensible choice of hardware.

    There are hydraulic chainsaws also. I can see being able to bog down a pneumatic chain saw but not a hydraulic one.

    I like the idea of the chain saw caddie.

    I was just thinking though. With the chain saw caddy. With how easy it is to dull a chain saw chain, cutting that low to the ground would be really counterproductive. Having it mounted that low to save your back by not having to cut bent over like that, but then after each cut or in the middle of a cut you would end up having to bend over anyway to dismount the chain saw to touch up the chain.
