550xp, 372xp, and like the wise man that posted before me... a ported 064. Actually, I think I could come with about 300 combinations to a good 3 saw plan :). Lots of good ones out there! Lime green, orange, orange and white, orange and black, yellow and black, etc.

First off, the premise of this thread is a 3 saw plan, but one really should never fuel or sharpen in the woods/landing, and cold weather hasn't been factored either. Therefore:


Ported 346XP for most use but a 550XPG for colder weather or backup for fuel/sharpening, (see above)

Ported Jred 2159 and 562XPG, again cold weather contingency.

372 XPG for cold weather and Dolmar 7900 for bigger stuff.

288 XP Lite, for biggest stuff. (Still in shop awaiting porting)

School me on this CAD thing again.

I'll take that bait. Who alleges that?

About the fueling, you just need to avoid spills, and move 10' or more from fueling site before starting engine.

Granberg file guide resides in my tool bag for chain touch-up every second fill-up, or when chain is acting dull.

For "never" I substitute "as required". :D

Isn't it just easier to grab another saw rather than refueling or adding bar oil?

The extension cord for the Silvey 510 doesn't reach that far.:cry:

200 T
346xp
dolmar 7900

The 200T and 346xp can do 90% of the wood I see, for a big saw any 372xp, 385xp, 390xp, ms660 would work also.

I run a 357 (18"), 562 (24"), and just picked up a 365xt that will be having some work done to it. I plan to pick up a 20" bar for the 562 and use the 24 on the 365. If I could get a full wrap 550 or 346 I'd run that and just keep the 357 as a backup saw.
