I have a chance to get a MS251 Wood Boss, that's only been used since November. Is this a good step up from my MS180, or should I go for something in the Farm & Ranch line? I ask that because I've been drooling over the MS271, but there is a huge price difference. You guys seem to be a huge wealth of knowledge, so I value your opinions. My uses are, I help cut fire wood for families that need it, as well help my father-in-law cut his fire wood. I trim trees, clear lots and also help when storms cause damage. I'm by no means a pro logger.
