Can't fault the last 2511 I brought ... seems they may have got it together? It may even last more than a year too! 1/4 pitch bar and chain and it's a ripper..
if I had to use one and I have both I would take the 540 though.. in all honesty I've used it twice in a year , I'd rather take the 2511 for reductions and awkward dismantles and swap out to a 550xp once the intricate works done... or just take a bigger saw for felling any way for cut chasing... some thing I've found the 201 incapable and dangerous of attempting to use in those situations.

I'd go for the t540 ixp battery version. I've not picked up my 201 since I bought it.

I was going to say I've mostly changed over to battery but didn't want that to get confused with the beautiful woman earlier.
