  1. 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 ?



  2. the 150tc is affordable and very good if you do light deadwooding or pruning and stuff,no point n slugging about a 201 if you dont need to plus its give your 201 break from cutting small stuff,i think its better to just cut chunky stuff with 201 keeps it good..my own thoughts though :001_smile:

  3. stihl 261 CM is the top of the range mid range saw,runs a 13 to 18" bar and 1.6mm chain,dont go cheap spend the money it will last you for many years also has a auto tune carb that will tune the saw to what ever work you use it for..

  4. I had just started dismantling a medium sized willow tree witch was covered in ivy in the east end of glasgow,and this dodgy lookin guy appeared from the neighbouring propery,it had matal bar fence all round the garden and a few staffies roaming about,he started asking allsorts of questions so I came down,as soon as I turned my back he hopped up the tree and came down with a box wrapped in brown tape,he quickly had look inside then disappeared,I imagine it was drugs of some sort...
