Just one saw. A Stihl MS250. Nice saw for my application, which is just maintaining a couple of acres with large trees. My only complaint is they like to kick back when you are starting them. It's just the way they are according to the dealer.

I have a Husqvarna 455 Rancher I picked up last winter. More than I need. Also have an older Husqvarna 51 kicking around, plus a bunch of old Pioneer saws. P26's, P24's? and I believe at least one 620.

A bunch of Husqies, a pair of 266's , a 50, a 61, with a 575 and a 372 all running and cut well. The 266's are heavy but run awesome! I had a few Stihls but got rid of them because they were horrid on fuel, I see why they made the tank transparent, so you could watch it eat the fuel.

I have a Homelite 155 Automatic. It is a great tool for house hold chores, cleaning up the yard and I used it for cleaning up a lot I just sold.

I've got a few saws... a 12" top handle McCulloch that's old and finiky, but runs. My main use saw is an Echo CS670 w/ 20" bar. No complaints about that machine at all. Then I've got my Grandfather's 1950 Mall model 11 34" 2 man saw. Now that's a heifer!

Echo CS670 with a 20" bar I got the same saw, top of the line when I bought it and a good one too.

I have a Stihl 064 w/ 28" bar pretty sure its around 85cc. This saw is a beast and cuts about anything. I also have a Husky can't think of the model but it has a 20" bar.

Wow Brett, I bet that Stihl is heavy. I have an old 047 Farm Boss w/16 in and it weighs a ton. Imagine yours is a bit heavier.

Dolmar PS-420 checking in.
It's not very big but its the perfect size for what I need.
Awesome power to weight ratio.
Plus I've got a great dealer.
