    Had several 3 inch diameter limbs fall in the yard yesterday as a big storm blew in and took temps from 90's to 70's. Whew...what a relief. I enlisted the little 192 for the task. This is my favorite and can't discount a light weight saw for times like this. Runs a long time on a small tank of gas and is light and nimble compared to most others. Chain maintenance is a snap with only a few cutters also.

    Nice - I'd like to have a little top handled limber, but it's more a want than a need. If I found a great deal I'd pop, but they usually come up pretty pricey. I like the small limbs for shoulder season. Cheers!

    Used 192s can usually be had for a song. They get poo poo'd because they are a "homeowner clamshell" design.

    Not sure how they compare, but someone has had an 011 AVT up on CL for $50 near me, and nobody seems to be biting.
