    That is a pro grade monster of a saw...
    We will need some in action videos of that machine in action...
    You must cut a lot of wood...

    That's really good advice as well.

    We heat with wood 100% so we have no heat bills. I usually get a few big trees about three foot in diameter per year from people that can't use that big of logs.
    Once I cut the rounds to length then I can cut pie shaped wedges quickly with the saw. I burn big chunks about 12"x12"x 16 long.
    I usually can get maple, oak or sycamore.

    Well, try an ES Light next time you buy a new bar -- you will really like the weight reduction and improvement in handling. Here's the ES Light (28") on my 461:

    Congrats. That is a beast of a saw. I also have a 660. I love Stihl products.

    I had to run some errands this morning, but the plan for this afternoon is using the 660 to cut up a big log. I can't believe that I'm looking forward to working on my day off
    I ordered a dual port muffler off of eBay. It should be here by next weekend.

    Trashed my 15 year old Stihl 025 today taking down a tree that didn't go the direction I expected/intended. I'm fine as is everything but the saw RIP. Doesn't owe me a cent. A new Stihl 250 may be in my near future.

    I agree 94BULLITT! It was a great saw but when I read the tea leaves I said **** the saw, it can be replaced!! It's only $$$ after all. $100 copay for the ER if I'm lucky enough to make it there! No way I'm going to risk life & limb to saw an inanimate object!!
