    If you live in South Carolina and you're cutting wood, I hope it's to fire a steam-powered generator to run your A/C!

    I hated my MS250 for the first few years that I had it. It turned out that the Chinese carb had a manufacturing/design defect that allowed the diaphragm cover to warp when the saw heated up. I sealed it up with a little silicon and now it runs fine.

    I like my other Husqy saws very well, and think they start easier, but I "still" bought a Stihl MS200T in the spring for limbing. It is a little monster that I have grown fond of.

    I find that regular gas and a little Stabil work ok for me. If I blow it and leave some gas in the carb for a month, bad things do not appear to happen.

    Tuning the carbs for the altitude that you work at makes a big difference as well.

    Good luck!
