    Awesome -- the 261 is a fine saw -- one of my favorites. Mine is a year old, and I love it. I moved up to a 20" bar on the saw, and it pulls it with authority.

    Of course, I just added its big brother to my fleet -- the new 461 (which just started arriving at dealers):

    Well bring that thing on down south and I will let you break it in on a stack of wood I have laying around.

    Personally i like the MS261 way better than my MS362, it feels real light and with a 16 inch blade (oem) with .325 chain it doesn't bog down as my MS362. The MS261 is comparable to the Husky 346xp performance wise.

    @ Johnk, i'm also a Husky guy, but due to crappy Husky dealer i decided to switch to Stihl. -photo489-jpg Here's my 2012 collection . 2013 on the way.
    I've been hearing about woods porting on chainsaws, anyone have a link to that, that way i'll get a Stihl to out performe a Husky

    Woods porting is just that, optimizing whats already there, or improving performance for the woods while maintaining reliabilty first, as compared to race porting, where performance is first and long days in the woods are nill. Check the arborist site and search your saws, you may be able to perform some mild tuning on your own,or find someone there that does woods porting. Keep in mind,the ones that do it best,there is a line for.

    Ive worked the snot out of my "Farm Boss" MS290. Honestly got that model because it was the one I remembered my Dad having when I was a kid. That and the price point. Use it for felling and bucking, and my feather weight MS192 for limbing, a real back saver.
    -10-20-o9-072-jpgLately I have been wondering how much different a "Pro-grade" saw would be. Mabe the MS261, probably dont need a 362. If anyone would like to describe the differences in operator experience between my Mid-range MS290 and the Pro-grade MS261 or older MS260, I would be apreciative. Thanx.

    When you say 30-40 cords
    do you mean face cords? 16" x 4' x 8' stacks ?
    if so
    Those saws well maintained and run on premium fuel should last you nearly 20 years.(less bar wear and chains)
    20 yrs x $200 or $300 = $4000 to $6000 dollar loss
