you don't have 4 month old gas in the tank, do you?
If you have a great dealer,he should be able to provide you the differences between the two saws, and maybe he will let you try them out
261- mag case, captive bar nuts, hd filter, adj. oiler.
271= mid range/ farm saw, Not homeowner. If money is not a concern, spend $160 more and get a 261. However a 271 will be all you will ever need.
Yeah? It's your home!
It's for the wood, right?
yep. That should do it. I have replaced a few spill switches on my boiler due negative pressure
I would cap the flue. I think you are pulling air in from the flue not being used. Also make sure you have a source of make up air
Has anyone tried the qualiflame logs at Lowes?
Which ever one you buy, make sure it has a fuel valve and use it because the fuel around here will play havoc with the engine. Good luck with your...
You could also check lowes, sometimes they will have troybuilts that have come back and they sell them at a discount. By me on the south shore the...
Nice story and nice price on the 260. What goes around, comes around!
Oh yeah! thats what I call livin' the high life, enjoy! BTW that is a nice collection!
looks like it may be classified as a mid range or farm saw instead of a homeowner saw
i use mine vertically so I don't use the cradle. horizontal use, I think the cradle is a good idea
No, it was for the op. If I had a pro saw, I wouldn't trade down either. I only cut 2 cords a year, so the 271 is fine for me. The .7# difference...
5 cords a year? take a look at a ms271. its a good saw and its $120 less than a ms261
I have the troy built 27 ton from lowes and its performed well. Make sure when you are done splitting you close the gas shut off valve and run it dry.
the dealer told me that the 251 will be about 50 more.
no, I think the saw is a well kept secret. i guess too well kept!
I bought a ms271 last year and its been a great saw. no problems at all. got it with a 16" bar
right place at the right time--enjoy it
Want to double your money?:)
i would say you had a loose chain. same thing happened to me. played it safe and got a new chain.
I think an ms250 will do just fine. I think it is a great saw for the money and I think you will be happy with it
I close the valve in the fuel line and let it run to empty the fuel bowl and carb.
troy built 27 ton from lowe's works fine for me, just have to run it dry the ethenol is rough on the honda engine
ms271, mid range saw, priced between a 290 and a 261, great filtration and AV, no problems, great saw
