when my Chainsaw has more HP than my motorcycle!
Had to cut out big stump. Too cheap to pay for stump grinder and most won't grind deep enough for me. Anyway the stump measured over 36 inches at the root under ground after I dug down to it. My husky labored cutting through the base beings it's twice or three times as hard as the trunk (oak).
Saw started dieing out. WOW I thought what's the deal? Checked the gas and it would running out!!(you could say a gas hog at almost WOT). Which Got me thinking I brought Yamaha C3 scooter with 15000 miles on it (yea who can put 15ooo miles on 2007 scooter), runs good for my retirement when I get to the Villiages. My chain saw has about the same hp as my scooter!.
Can't beleive how many time I has to clean adjust, and sharpen the chain to get it to cut through the stump below ground level. Took me about 4 hours to get the 3 1/2 foot stump above ground. even had to slice it down the middle.
