I never gave the weight of a saw much thought. I started out with the husky 2100 and my thoughts were we keep in cutting in the wood anyway not posing for fashion week. I was picking up 400lb machine parts to assemble on the machines. But as time went on I picked up a new husky 266se. Great saw. My son has been using a Poulan wild thing for at least 15 years. Recently he’s cleaning up my seven acres of land. I bought him a husky rancher 460. The lad couldn’t thank me enough. I see a lot of tree guys using the 460.
