Hey guys, Had a chance to cut logs for about 2 h with my new 262xp (1993 vintage). Here are my overall all impressions. Very nicely balanced with the 20" bar and very smooth in the cut. Very strong saw and very little bog in any cuts (was cutting red maple though, but pretty large diameter stuff). From sitting for many, many years with no use, I think the carb needs some adjustment. Saw was running and sounded great for most of the cuts, but in the last few cuts I noticed it was starting to sound pretty lean, so shut her down. Notice she was getting a little hot. Decided to stop for the day and get the saw in the shop for some tuning - didn't want to take any chances if she's on the lean side. Hope I didn't run her too lean for too long! All in all, super happy with the saw. Going to tune and cut some more before I make a final decision on what to do with the 362 - if the 262 performs like it did today in the next few rounds of cutting, I think the 362 will need to find another home........ Cheers!
