I think the ash cart would be particularly useful with the larger units. My little GS100 doesn't make much ash, a G400 would be quite a bit more.

   While a few of you may have already known this, HeatMaster is working on a line of outdoor boiler accessories. So far they've completed the ash cart and the solar light/tool rack. I'll try to attach a couple pics.

Here's a short very amateur video of our setup.

Am also looking to replace my Stihl, the 290 feel underpowered cutting thru hardwood logsof 14-16”...

I was thinking of the ms362 but went i went to the Stihl dealer who got me unsure now... He recommended the ms441 magnum... And now looking at it the ms461 is about same weight but more hp...

Any recommendations?

I won’t swear to it, but I’ve think on several other forums people claim a 441 will output a 461 because the 441 revs higher? Might be wrong on that. Best suggestion is to find somebody that has both and try em or see what they say.

I like my 362 and my 460. Still use the little 024 a LOT though topping and limbing.

It's more about keeping your name out there, meeting a few new people. Fall is much better than June/July!
But to be honest- word of mouth, internet, parts and service are by far the most effective way to generate sales. Probably after sales service is the biggest. It's good for them and good for us.

Do you fellas get a lot of sales out of a typical county fair? I know I helped out a guy in high school a couple years set up a few county fair booths and it was tough to even get people to stop and check stuff out. Nobody seemed to care. We had talked about it a couple years ago and I asked if he was still doing the fairs and I seem to recall him saying in the years he ran the fair circuit (like 8-10 years) he sold 2 boilers lol

Been  running a 044 Stihl for last 20yrs or so.I guess the 440 took it's place or maybe the 441. Really like that saw. Had several 064"s before that. Just a little heavy but the 044 feels good.

 Sometimes I like the little shows better. There is less contention between manufacturers, less lying to get an advantage,etc.  I remember setting up at a flee market some years back with two stoves, had a good time and a $15 lot cost and ending up selling       7 units. One day event.

I've had my 440 now for 14 years and put up close to 200 cord with it. Never had a single problem with it. I will say, that saw flat out rips.

However.... Its a LOT of saw for general firewood cutting.  Limbing and brushing gets tiring and that aggressive of a saw is not very forgiving.  You got a smaller saw for limbing?

Our county is so small it only lasts a weekend. Some do last 10 days, and this fair (WV State) does 10. I help a few days, Marlinton Southern States does the whole thing. He's a great guy, I'd be a frazzle in the heat that long. I like short 2 or 3 day events myself, too much work piles up otherwise.

We did the Blueberry Festival a couple years, Labor Day weekend. Figured it out to being there 46 hours over four days, that doesn’t include setup or tear down. WE skipped that this year, wrong crowd anyways. Doing a Oktoberfest this fall and next year will be doing a Firemans Festival the next town over, it lasts 4 days, but three of those are from 6pm to 10pm, Saturday is the only full day. Draws more farmers and the like, more my crowd than the artsy fartsy and craft crowd the Blueberry draws.
