Have you thought about a second hand saw like a 357 or 346 or even a stihl 260 or 261 these are all great saws

I have considered going second hand but a few guys i know tell me to buy new for your primary saw then second hand for your back up. They have bought second hand before with tons of problems and faults, not saying every used saw is knackered but i would prefer new.

what about getting a decent second hand ms261 for the moment and when the time is right get a husky 560

i wouldn't go down the 550 route as a lot seem to have problems with them
