    Hi All, Have about 10-12 tanks of fuel run through the new 261 now and that thing has really come to life power wise. I keep my chains touched up all the time and it handles the 20'' bar with ease for fire wood duty.
    She tells me I take better care of that new saw than the new Outback.lol
    Anyways, the orange 350 is going up for sale and I have been looking at the 201 with the extended rear grip with a 14' bar for a lighter more compact package in treetops on the ground, the 261 feels a little clumsy at times to me in tight spots, not to bad but I feel the smaller saw would feel a little better stumbling around cutting my way through tops.
    They are a little pricy but if they are on the same quality line as the 261 I'm sold.
    I also think Im getting the start of white handle fever :)
    If you got one, tell me about it or if you don't tell me what you think anyways.

    Thanks, Todd
