Fact: A local shop has a used Stihl 361 they put a new top end in (cyl., rings, piston). About four years old. Situation: I have an old Stihl 025 that works fine, probably 15 years old, but only used heavily these last six or so. I am cutting three or four cords a year, but am getting really tired of the time it takes my current saw to slog through 30" oak logs. Or even 24" logs. Even with newly sharpened chains. Questions: Will the 361 speed the process enough to make a difference to me? If so, do I grab it, try to get them to come down, or pass? If I buy it, do I trade the old 025 or keep it for trimming limbs and smaller logs? The 025 is lighter, but not startlingly so.
