A quick review and how to on the Hud-Son Forest Equipment chainsaw log debarker.
Good morning, everyone! I’m going to do a quick review on a chainsaw log debarker. I got it from Hud-Son Forest Equipment. Ordered it on the internet. Showed up at my house halfway around the country in like four days. So fast shipping. It was $149 bucks and free shipping.
So I was tired of cutting all the knots off the logs with my chainsaw so I figured I would give this debarker a try.
Pretty simple to attach this debarker to the chainsaw. So you have to have a chain that is two inches longer than your actual bar length. I had this old Ryobi 16 inch laying around so I decided to throw it on it. Grabbed one of my old 18 inch chains put it right on. Pretty simple to attach once you get the holes drilled in the bar. I for some reason don’t have a drill press so I did it with a hand drill. Just took a metal punch and I had to step up the bits but man it took a while. Got it on and low n behold it was definately worth my money. I’m not using it to debark the logs per say. I’m using it to take down the knots so I don’t have to git them with my chainsaw and plus it makes it a lot easier when I’m hitting it with the draw knife/come to a dead stop.
Anyways chainsaw log debarker from Hud-Son Forest Equipment. Let me get this saw running real fast and I’ll show you how it works. Again it didn’t take me long to realize that it was worth my money. So let me see if I can get a good angle on this log.
