My Johnson-red

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

The classified ad caught my attention:

MOVING SALE: Shop vac, Johnson-red chainsaw, leather couch, leather reclining chairs, oak dining set 36″ HDTV P.A. sound system, queen bed with frame 2 mad river canoes, scroll saw Call xxx-xxxx.

As much as I would like to have a Mad River canoe, it would be a hard purchase to justify considering the current state of our family finances. And leather furniture would be nice, but when Janet heard that the colour was teal, that idea was put to rest.

However ever since buying our woodlot last fall, I’ve been keeping my eye out for a good quality used chainsaw, so I phoned about the Johnson-red.

Here are a couple of pics of my most recent purchase.

I’ve cut some firewood in my backyard with my new/old Johnson-red this week, and it runs nicely. This Saturday, if the weather holds, I’m planning to spend a day at Shell Lake cutting trails on our woodlot, to really put it to the test.
