    That is the weight of the power head alone. Now remember you have to add gas, oil and which ever chain and bar you desire!

    Must be real easy cuttin those 48"ers pullin that starter rope with no bar and chain!

    Usually I try to cut with the bar and chain in place. :coolsmirk: The point is that just because chainsaw xxxx is lighter than chainsaw yyyy, doesn't mean it is less WORK to operate.

    Stihl is quality and the 361 is high end, no doubt about it, and you probably spent $700+ for the saw. But I doubt 'most' want to lug that around their wood pile cutting rounds that are 'usually' less than 16"s. Now if they were clearing lots or logging that would be another story.

    Any size works. If there is too much space, add extra wood as padding.

    Don't forget to drill holes into the sidewalls so that water won't accumate; no one wants to breed extra mosquitoes since there are so many already to attack while splitting.

    Another handy trick: wedge your wood between logs.
