Chainsaw Attack!!

Hello Everyone...
I was interested to see that a chainsaw was in the news last week. I was watching CNN and saw footage of an angry man in England who rushed into a pub with a running chainsaw. I suppose he was upset about something...or maybe it was bad timing for a tree removal. Anyhow, I understand that no one got hurt so this make things easier for us to joke about it. Not many of us have ever gotten so mad that we grab for a weapon...and if we did it was probably a stick or a rock. "Hey, a chainsaw will do!"
Here is the footage from the bar. The footage isn't Hollywood quality but you get the idea. Again, no one got hurt...there is no sit back and enjoy.

If you are walking down the street with a chainsaw in England, what side do you walk on? The right or left? Practically speaking I recognize a chainsaw is a very dangerous machine but I'm not sure how effective a weapon it would be. What if your victim ran? Could you run them down with a 14 pound Poulan in your hands? Or maybe this guy wasn't really going to slice up anyone but rather wanted quality points for his presentation? These are very important questions to ponder!
Safe Cutting!


  1. I came across your blog in my search for a Hardy dealer in Northeast Ohio. I am in need of some new grates for my H4. I read your post (Jan. 09) and will make an effort to keep an eye on the ash levels. Can you recommend a dealer? By the way, love your blog!

    1. Melissy...Thanks for the nice comments and it is nice to hear from someone close by. Depending on where you live in NEO I know of only two dealers. One is in Ravenna and the other is in Andover. I deal with the Andover dealer (Shadels Furnace) she is very nice and I highly reccomend them. I have never been to the dealer in Ravenna. Let me know what part of NEO you live in. Regarding your grates...I now keep my ash even at lower levels now as I first did. Especially in cold weather. Also I can't insist enough you rotate your grates...The H2 grates are about $50 each. I'm sure the H4 is a little pricier. If you haven't done so, please sign up as a member to OWB!

  2. It might be a formidable weapon if it was anything other than a Poulan... :^)

    I'm kidding. I own one myself. Good find on the vid.
