    i was just using dad's 250. has 16"bar and new safety chain. why does his saw feel so much weaker than my 028 with 18"bar and safety chain. if i had to put a number to it, i'd say my 028 is 15 to 25% stronger.

    both saws seem to run well.

    also, does anyone know (off the top of their head) whether my old 18" bar will fit dad's saw?

    I'm blanking now, but i thought the 250 was 45 point something ccs and the 028 was 47, and that's why i figured they'd be closer in power.
