I have a 241c-m and it's great. Starts in two to three pulls cold and one pull warm. Revs quick and has lots of jam for a smaller saw.

I have 2 large Husq saws and 3 of the STIHL 200T saws
want to buy a new saw and want opinions on electronic or not

Thanks
What size of saw? 50cc 550xp mk II, easy starting, smooth, good power in red oak. Never cared for 346's or 357's, but I rebuilt a 550mkI and changed my mind on 50cc class.

I will keep my 200t’s
Looking for slightly larger saw and 261 looks to fill that bill
Then a larger 462

question is carb or Mtronic as it seems that the Mtronic has bugs worked out of it

We've run both kinds of 261's great lightweight limbing saws 18-20" .325

Never cared if I was picking up the Mtron or manual carb. Both were easy starts and P/W was adequate. Not a big felling saw, buth I had zero complaints on either.
