As stated in my previous thread i am offered a 440 at the price of the 361 because my local dealer has very bad experiences with the 361. (?????) A 440 is a serious overkill for most of my work but will for sure make the though jobs fun. I am wondering which small stihl is best according your opinion to run besides the 440? I used to have a top-handle but this is surely not a must. sawing profile: - 20% dirty jobs, dirty wood, bush, etc - 30% trimming, mainly fruit trees - 10% fresh wood going from poplar to small oak - think dia up to 12" - 30% cutting of bought in firewood that comes in 3 foot lenghts and dia up to 25" - 10% felling and cutting of the trees for the above firewood. As prices go up and delivery starts to play up pricewise, and i have to possibility to haul the wood myself the last 2 points may increase in the coming years. And thats were i see the benefit of the 440 over a 260 or 361. I have no knowledge on everything below the 024. If i go for the 440 i want the small one to be even more light handling than the 024 was. But which one then??
