    I hate to say it but I think it out pulls the 064/066 hybrid I have.... Went and cleaned up some more of that sweet gum today and even folks with no saw knowledge made comments on how fast it was going threw it....

    lol I tryed to tell you! Now if you was in a monster log and I mean monster that 064 would just out lug it. 40+ in hardwood or 50+ softwood then things start to change a little. And
    even the it can come down to real dogfight on the low side of those numbers.

    Oh Yea around here both would be the berrys. I just had to pull up some where 460/880 seems to be very sweeet for me but some day a 660 could be the perfect 4 saw plan.

    I like the size of the 064 better then the 066..It is hard to see in pic's but side by side the 64 is much smaller....

    Yea looks like a cool set up like to see it barried in a monster tree. I have a couple silver maples to do should go 60-65 inchs going to cross cut with the 880 for the first time.
    The 460 and 32 inch bar probally do it but just itching to see it cross.

    The older 046 is junk and you need to sell it to me cheap!!!!! Preferably for the price of shipping!!!!

    Ok now how about some pic's??? How much was it???

    The biggest difference of the two will be flippy caps....

    No No No I was inline first...

    See my thinking is the flippy caps are heaver then the screw in caps right??? So this turns into more weight pushing the saw through the cut..There for flippy caps = faster...

    Thanks for the responce
    I got it for $150,but it could use a recoil,some of the screen is broke out.
    I havn't had a need for a saw for the last few years,13 exactly.other than cutting the ocaisional tree around the yard.My last full time saw got stolen a Stihl 034,seems i'v always had them. Have ended up with a good colection of Stihls over the years.Most are not runners.So i thoght i would pop on the 046 it was running and the other running saws are a 026 and a MS260 both inherited,and one lone husky XP265.
    I'm getting back into woodburning so i'll have to get used to a saw or two again
    I'll probly need some help finding parts for some of the others,one has no identifying marks.
    I'm always giving broke stuff a home.
    Sorry for the hijack
    Thomas
