Those are all great looking saws! I had a Stihl 034 that cut 4-6 cords a year for 20 years. Best saw I ever owned. It froze up last year and I bought a new Stihl 311. I think I liked the 034 better but then again, I do not like change! I put 18" bars on both of them for bucking and felling. Thinking of just going back to the 16" as not into felling much anymore.

Charles, that is a good looking saw! I bet it will be much better then the 460! How heavy is it?


Thanks! I don't know about much better but its definitely much lighter! lol. It weighs about 11.6 pounds for just the power head which makes 3.75hp. So with a bar, bar oil and fuel probably around 14-16. I also just picked up a Stihl MS361 this past Sunday which weighs less than a pound more than the 261 and makes 4.4-4.6hp. Needless to say I've got some sweet saws. Its funny you wind up spending much more on bars and chains than you actually do buying the saws! lol. Here a pic of the 361 and the current line up.
