• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.

I believe it's entirely up to the guy operating the saw. I have a few 262 and 254 saws. None are ported, but there are other things that will increase performance besides grinding on the cylinder.
Any of my 254 of 262 saws will pull a 24" full comp In green hardwood. The question is how hard does a guy want to work the saw. Also must remember the bar doesn't need to be buried with every cut.
It's an operator preference. Ask 10 different guys and likely get 10 different answers. And there is no one right answer.
I top a lot with 254 and 262, so for my personal preference, I run longer bars to keep from moving around a lot.
