    Really depends on where your buying it from,my local dealer sells for retail and his prices are firm,but i drive 1 1/2 hrs to another dealer (this is the one i buy from) and they knocked $250 off rec retail straight up,you buying from US or OZ?

    A 660 power head only from the US is about $1050 + post of about $120 , but you dont get dual port muff,high out put oiler,chain catcher roller and no warranty.
    If you can get one from an ozzy dealer for about $1750 you would be doing allright.

    Ya need a 660 with a 36'' bar for that sort of wood,you will be disappointed in a 441 hasnt got the power or the torque.
