I EDC a 108mm solo because I really like the bigger blade and because I have no real use for the other tools (since it's paired with a CyberTool).
Your comments about the saw certainly bring back memories Al!
Lol!End of the day they were meant to be used by squadies so they had to place robustness ahead of practicality :/It's just us lot being picky again
I think Steinar made a good choice with the pioneer Harvester
Does anyone really think that the German army did not test well these saws before issuing them to their troops?
Well... tested as in "follows the specification", no doubt, tested as in "check if it's any good", I have no idea. Some military equipment works great, some of it requires language not suited to a family friendly forum.
Depressing example: The Norwegian army boot used to be a great hiking boot. Simple, strong, well-made and comfortable, a lot of people leaving the service "lost" their pair to use for hiking, and many civilians wanting a cheap, good pair of boots bought the model. Then, a couple of years ago some economy smurfs figured out the boots really didn't need to last for years when typical service time is shorter, so the army actually requested lower quality from the factory to get a cheaper boot. And, yes, the new boots don't last, as requested...

Just because somebody gets what they asked for, doesn't mean they necessarily got what they need
These 108's are made for modding
