    Okay. Grab the 441 m-tron. You will never regret buying it. Later, you may regret buying something less.

    Hi Mike, I just purchased a new MS261 with an 18' bar, Have cut about 1 1/2 cord so far (hard woods) and what a saw, My dealer talked me out of the bigger 362 and Im glad he did, the 261 will run a 20" no problem I feel also.
    The weight of the saw will not work you over either, I could not be happier for a 3 to 4 cord a year + hobby saw.
    I spend ALOT MORE time loading now than cutting, I think you would be overly impressed with the 362, I can say it would be over kill for me now that I have used the 261. Good job Stihl, weight to power is awesome on this one.
    Im all about saving a buck but all said an done now Im glad I did buy new.

    There's a tad more than 1/2 cord on these loads..... heh, heh, heh. >>

    First load is Oak, second is Cherry. Both were fresh cut and strapped in for the ride. This is the absolute maximum I'd want on that truck. With the oak especially, the brakes were clearly the limiting factor.
