How heavy you figure it is?

If it is aluminum block and heads, with a tiny flywheel it's still gotta weigh a bunch doesn't it?

I agree - those dudes yanked it off the ground like it weighed 50 pounds! I bet they can change tires without a jack.

Think how quick they could do one of those Chainsaw sculptures! Not sure what it would look like though.

That was way cool; but if you follow around the circle from the v-twin, to the V-6, to the V-8, there is something to the left of the V-8, that is blue, that another guy is working on. A Viper V-10 maybe? Can we say a four man Aluminum Torque V-12? No wait, a Turbine power tree desintegrator.

Chansaws on a boating thread. So who knows why it fits? There is actually a very strong connection here.

Ya know though....they realy did compare that thing to the unlimited class chainsaws those guys have.....the ones that have custome tuned pipes that looke like the engine could have come out of a drag racing snowmobile!!! I bet it would be close!
