What do you want to know about them?
I have plenty of experience with them.
Currently mostly use them to make big slabs from old growth trees 3 inches thick, up to 50 inches wide, 8 ft long

Used them when worked for Alaska State Parks, Forest Service, and Americorp mostly to make dimensional lumber to use when doing trail work in the middle of know where.

Requires the right kind of chain, BIGGEST saw you can get, and the right bar.
Always adjust chain oilier WIDE open.
Use chain saw bar oil not something else.
Run high octane gas in your saw.

Thanks for the tips. I stopped by the local saw shop and was also informed that the chain needed to be a 10 degree rip tooth instead of the traditional 30 degree cross cut tooth. My Stihl saw can handle a 28" bar so I might be able to get 24 inch boards out of it. Great tool!
