Hello, I took your guys' advice and passed on that 026. I've been looking at all of the different brands that you guys have recommended, but haven't found any. I did find a Stihl Ms261c. I know that some of you have recommended the ms261, but what does the c mean? Should I still go for it? He says it's only 2 years old and has only been used a couple of times. Is this saw one that is easy to rebuild? Parts availability? Also it has a chain tensioner that I have never seen before. Do you guys like this style of tensioner? Thanks so much for all of your help! I really appreciate it.

That's not a 261. It's a 251 and a far cry form a 261.
I have an 026 with a fully adjustable carb and would put it up against any stock 028 or 260.
