    Nice. Is that an 80cc saw? Is that how Echo numbers them?

    For chits n giggles, gotta do some comparative testing against a Stihl 460 and Hooskie 372. Or comparable saws.
    Same wood, same chain. Same bar if possible.

    Yes...
    Just for a general guide to see where the saw rates...
    Looks very strong though.
    Echo. Simple, nothing flashy, just a good solid worksaw.

    Almost looked like we were trying to race through the log. I was just testing the 064 and happened to be in the background.

    I did up a chain for my neighbors grandsons 271, it had no problem pulling a 20" 325 chain, and it sipped fuel, not the worse saw I've ran.
    The good thing is you'll never sell it ;).

    That is true regarding an 044 vs a 372, but I would not make that bet against a 460 or a good running Hybrid.

    Of course, you are welcome to bring one to any GTG I go to and we can compare! At the Upstate NY GTG we had a very hard 18" White Oak cant and were all running 24" Stihl RSL (off the roll square file) chain.

    I was thinking of racing, 18" hardwood isn't the typical race wood :surprised3:.
    How did they compare up there. I wasn't talking about an 044, but a 460, and as I was saying I meant racing.
    I don't think I've ever ran a hybrid(so I can't say), but someone may remind me I have :dizzy:, but I have sold a few 460 cylinders to guys building them and I remember that :).

    In a softwood cant I believe you would be correct, but all the guys who were running 8 pin rims in that White Oak cant were not pleased that they did. That thing was tough, a real hardwood competition!

    Hybrids can run very fast, and often have trouble running out of fuel. I had to put .070 jet carbs on mine. The smaller 440 case acts just like a crank stuffer. They have to be ported just right to have the torque of the ported 460s.

    Won't be a fair race, 372 owns that class for a reason. They gain more then most models with porting.

    I remember seeing videos in that log, and iirc that was the one they had a list of the times everyone ran.
    8 pins don't always help your times in wood that hard with an aggressive chain that's set up for softwood :surprised3:.
