MS 241 or 61 with easy start.
A lightweight pro series 50cc saw that can pull a 24 inch bar in a pinch but mostly run a 16 for limbing/normal shyt. 026 maybe.
What he said.
Husqvarna 61 just because they're reliable and a work horse
Stihl 362 because I already own a Stihl 361. Does that qualify for a valid answer? Sheesh!

1 saw and 1 saw only? Have to be 026 or ms261,
Would have to be a 7900 Dolmar with a 20&28. 462 specs with a standard carb.
I like the Mtrons and Auto Tunes and have many. However just one saw that can be fixed by just me would have to be a 70cc with two bars, standard carb like:
One of my best friends has only one saw that he actually uses for about everything -- Husqvarna 353. So, I bought one and used it a lot last year. He may be right. But, it came to past that I had to buck 36" dia. red elm in October. I put away the Husky and pulled out my Stihl 046 Mag with a 32" bar. Conclusion: there is no one saw that can handle it all.
That's why I haven't sold my 2186 despite barely using it. It's sure nice to use when you need it.
One of them newfangled MS462s.
So, can we say the dolkita 79xx wins this one-saw plan shootout?
I was thinking Poulan 4000 also. But in the end the 7900 got my vote.
Since you didn't read the thread. You have to send me that saw, so you can say it's the one you don't have, but want.
My speed reading left that part out ,lol I will erase my post and start over .
Have not had a 661 yet so one of those .
Note that we all tend to lean toward the bigger saws. Then we forget that close to two-thirds of all firewood cutting is done with under 60 cc saws, usually with 16" to 18" bars. A strong logger once told me that smaller saws are useless for him. He even uses his MS 661 with a 36" bar to cut off stubs and beaver tails. He says, "The longer the bar, the less I have to stoop over to cut anything."
Then again, this guy used to be a fullback and a line backer (played both ways) in high school and even today can bench press 300 lb.
