    So I've got this Jonsered 525 that I've had for 20 years. It's a great saw and the one I take if I'm only taking one.

    I'm going to pick up my new Jonsered 2150 tomorrow that will sport a 16" bar and will be my "most of the time" saw. While I'm at the saw shop I think I'll grab another bar and chain for the 525. I either a 18" or 20" on it now, depending on what I'm doing, but feel it can probably take a 22". Any thoughts? Is a 22" bar to ambitious for this saw? It's in pretty good shape and shouldn't be too far off its original power.

    By the way, finding specs for this saw online hasn't been fruitful. Does anyone know the displacement and horsepower of the 525?

    Thanks in advance.

    Jim
