    I love saws, I really do. The old Poulans are very dear to me, however, Poulan has fallen by the way side (hopefully just for now). If I could have 3 saws right now, they would be
    50cc Husqvarna 346xp
    60 cc Stihl MS361
    70+cc Dolmar 7900
    anything requiring more than a 7900, all bets are off. Maybe a mufflr modded MS600.... or God forbid an Ms 880....

    Sounds good to me - but I don't need a 79cc saw, so I replace it with a 372xp on my list.....:)

    Working my way up to a 3 saw plan.... not too different to yours. But I'll hang on to my trusty 026.

    I like your lineup.

    3 saw plan for me now is :

    MS 211, a good running limb saw

    026, I love this saw

    7900 will handle any tree that grows in my area

    Got an MS 361 on the wish list

    Being a climber I have to have a 200t, then I go to a 440, then a 660.

    I'm running a 12 saw plan right now, but this 3 saw deal could be hypothetical.

    Of the saws that I actually own, and not on a wish list:) I could narrow it down to 2 saws. I been workin on some large swamp white oaks, dropped a 30 incher yesterday, with several larger ones comming up, 36+. I used my 385xp and Poulan 4000. They cover everything I cut perfectly. If asked to add a 3rd saw, I'd take a 3400 Poulan, just for sentimental reasons..LOL
    But then we all know, we are all working on 2dozen saw plan!:cheers:

    Gregg,
