It takes a WELL ported 660 to keep up with a 661 that has only a muffler mod and broke in..ive tried it and was kinda shocked at how well the new saws run.Hello neighbor,
Welcome to AS and congrats on the 660! You would have been hard pressed to buy from a better member than Brett. I have often been on the fence about the 460/461 and 660/661. But once ported the older models will run circles around the newer ones anyway. Plus you are kind of married to them price wise after porting. I figured that there will always be a newer model coming along, but they don't make any more of the classics like the 044/064/066, so I kept what I had and went that direction instead.
Now what you need to do is send your 362 to TN. When you get it back, you will forget all about wanting a 4 series saw. Pulls a 20-24" bar with ease, less vibes and 1/2 the weight for only $350.
