Looking for a bit of experienced guidance

Recommended Posts

You really dont need a big bar to take down big trees as you will know if you've experienced felling bigger trees,to get the best out of a 441 id run a 20 bar on it mate.

We use 441's at work and theyre great for medium to large fells and choggin down stems with.

We keep a 20 on our 441's.

For big work the 66 comes out

I think a 25 on a 441 would bog it down although ive never run that size of bar on 441 personally.

Just my opinion mate hope it helps

362 is a sluggishg old lump many have said . 441 or 461 if you want Stihl 372XP or 390XP if you go Husqvarna Husky man myself but thats just me .


With regard the 261 are you sure it was not the dreaded needle roller bearing problem caused buy the oval crank/sprocket thing that has affected most of them ?

Agree with Joe. Ours is very boggy on a 25". In fact, it rarely gets used.

Hi again, sorry to dither but its a big perchance for me,

I went back to look at the details before committing,

and the ms441 and the ms461 are pretty much the same price.

so whats the difference, and is there any minus or plus points to either.

(Like the 261s hidden problems)! ?
