    This :rolleyes:.
    VsII isn't any more impressive, but it gets point's for looking cool.
    I honestly thought based on what everyone was saying about it I'd be wanting to sell all the 50cc huskys, I sold it 2 weeks after getting it with zero regrets. My 550 did everything it does and felt lighter in my hands. I am more a husky guy though so that may be opposite for stihl guys, just another modern day 50cc saw in my book, nothing that will blow your mind.
    :laugh: You run any huskies yet buddy :cheers:.
    For most it comes down to personal preference, and dealer support, I'm not most :D.
    For me I look at lots of factors such as fuel economy, vibes, and noise level, and resale value(this is the main reason I buy stihls at all).
    You know I "have to have" many different saws for any occasion that could arise, you just don't know so it's better to be prepared :cool:.

    Well, when you open Pandora's box would you expect anything less!
    Shoot, surprise shouldn't be something you experience as often as you hang in P&R ;).

    I just got in the habit of buying every thing in pairs. I just happen to have two craftsmen which hardly ever start, two large Stihls, two ms 270 which I hate, two 460,s xtra torque, along with the other assortments. If you get one it could break so best get two. Thanks

    I like this way of thinking. I used to be that way when I farmed and worked in town also. Now that I have retired from town and just farm when I am buying supplies I have to rethink quantity's.

    Saws are like socks, they’re supposed to be in pairs. I’m short a 490, getting the shakes.

    Not really, I've seen them before, now if it's ported I do want to try it out.
    I was hoping for some coffee :drinkingcoffee:, and to hang out with my neighbor.

    I'm not a very social individual. Lean towards the curmudgeon side of the spectrum.

    But I do know where you can get some Coffee...

    Doesn't look like much room to swing the logs to the table.
    With the bota and that stihl you should only have a couple hrs if you have the whole crew going at it.
    Are those Christmas lights above/behind the logs. I'm looking for some nice outdoor lights, we currently have a bunch of Christmas lights around the bonfire pit.
