My vote goes to my 281xp, running a 24" for smaller timber or a 30"+ for larger.
I first bought a H445 for that reason, an al round saw it is at the cost I was able to afford.
Later I discovered that it was, but too heavy for jumping happily around the log cutting branches.
I just missed desperately that 3,3kg 25ccm top handle that I could carry around in my right hand while climbing around the log.
Now I have both and that is my conclusion, no saw rule them all unless it's less than 4kg.
ya, like those too, but...
You got my 064 I traded Bob for a beauty ,of a 288 builder.
Bobs work is to be admired.
I’d be waving a Stihl 088 with 3/8 chisel and 24 bar that saw some porting.
Silky Katanaboy. No petroleum or elecricity needed. Silent. Concealable. If ICE powered then it would have to be something that could run on pure ethanol, that I could brew and distill myself.
the 064 is alive & well here.
just a tick behind my 288, runnin side by side.
bob's pretty good wrench.
There is no saw that is king or even great. Just saws that are average. When I cut logs I want big displacement, but could not cut a bunch of small limbs with the same saw. If I had to chose a couple of saws for little work it would be a 372 XP and a MS 660. They are not perfect, but they can perform well enough to accomplish some thing. Thanks
A 70-80cc saw would be ideal but at my age my back doesn't appreciate carrying that weight around for very long, so it's a 262XP for me.
At 67 I still carry a 070 075 and 076 most weeks. It is amazing how lite they get after a couple of hard weeks. Last year had some bad weeks with my back and thought this is it. Some deep heat lots of stretching can do wonders. Most of the time I wonder how did this thing get so heavy. A 372 XP feels like it is a feather weight slicing and dicing. Thanks
Wimp! I’m getting more and more fond of my Makita 7900 with 28”.
Guilty as charged!
262xp Husqvarna for sure, it's been with me close to 25 years, I can't imagine not having it with me for everything. Of course I wouldn't mind my 372 as a backup or my old 4200 countervibe poulan.
