Power, control and precision all play an equal part in posting a strong time in the hot saw competition. These modified chainsaws can weigh up to 80 pounds apiece and rev at extremely high rpms. If you've got the power to hoist the saw, you now need to control the saw well enough to cut three complete discs of wood from a log.
