    Yes, you read that right. I'm coming out of retirement to see what's up with this new Stihl saw. I've been anxious to get my hands on one for months and the time has finally come. I will be doing before and after vids. I won't be able to run it in until Friday at the earliest, so this is really just a teaser ;) Until then, all you get are the pretty, new, fresh out of the box pics.

    Look forward to your thoughts on it, I know your a Stihl guy and I am more of a Husky guy but I have been impressed with the little I got to run one.

    I love all good saws. I'm actually a Stihl guy at heart.

    Me too, my new saws are all Stihl because if local dealer support. I’ve run good Echo, Shindaiwa and had lots of time on the old Homelites if all sizes. My definition of a “good” saw is one that starts and cuts

    Yeap. And till now it seems to be a reliable saw with a really good filtration( like the MS261) better than other older Stihls.

    Depends on who's looking for me.....and why.
    I wonder if it'll start as easy as my MS-241 C-MAGNUM does? :popcorn2:

    So I am to assume you have access to / own a Dyno for testing ? Also you have multiple jugs / pistons to test with ? Or just a copy of your 261c builds ?
