Murray
In February of 2005, Briggs & Stratton Corp. completed its purchase of the assets of Murray Inc., which manufactured lawn, garden and snow products. Wauwatosa-based Briggs (NYSE: BGG) and Murray reached an agreement for Briggs to buy most of Murray for $125 million. The sale involved the Murray name, equipment, tooling, patents, trademarks and other assets, but not Murray's real estate. As of mid 2006, no one is making Murray lawn moweres, but Briggs & Stratton plans to keep the brand alive, providing replacement parts and warranty support to more than 7,000 Murray dealers in the United States while it looks for a manufacturing partner to make new models in the future. There continues to be spot shortages of replacement parts such as pulleys, handles and cables for self-propelled lawn mowers as Briggs sorts out the assets and operations formerly managed by Murray.

What Chainsaw is Right for You?

There are three general categories of chainsaw that include the Trimming Saw, the Ground Saw and the Multi-purpose Saw. Within each category, a brand may have homeowner, mid-duty and commercial versions. Trimming Saws are compact and light. Homeowner versions are less expensive and designed for occasional use trimming branches while your feet are on the ground. Commercial versions are more expensive, more powerful and designed for 8-hour/day usage while climbing in a tree-top. Ground Saws are the big, heavy, high-powered saws designed for felling large trees and cutting-up the trunks. Multi-purpose Saws are capable of felling many trees while still light enough to swing around to take the branches off the tree while it is on the ground. Neither the Ground Saw nor the Multi-purpose Saw belong in the standing tree-top. Choose between homeowner, mid-duty and commercial by how often and how hard you will use the saw. If you and your wife will use it in the backyard 2-3 times a year for maintenance, get a homeowner grade. If you are putting it in the truck for your survey crew to use daily for light clearing consider a mid-duty and if you have 10-acres of forest to clear using a crew, get a commercial grade saw. Finally, select the bar/chain combination for the size of trees/branches you will be cutting.
