    I have many saws.The 3120 and my 084 are for bucking windfalls. I like my 361 for limbing.

    A 3120 is the biggest saw Husky makes. It's not for anyone with limited chainsaw skills.

    He would have gotten a Wild Thing but he didn't want to be accused of showing off by the loggers.

    120CC's? Whoa! My KTM125 race bike made 34hp at 11,500 in race trim.

    I may be man enough to operate that saw, but I assure you I do not have the skill. And thats important.

    We use a couple of 3120s at work. Most of us prefer 395s. Thire a little easier to toss around.

    I may to search to see if I have dealer like that around here!!! Do they sell anything smaller than the 3120 that isn't that large? The wood I cut has a stringy bark that comes of in buig chunks and the wood is real stringy when I split it. I thought about taking some of the larger trees, around 48" across, but never knew I could find a bigger saw!!! I may have to look for something bigger! Are there any other saws out there I might want to look at?

    I never had good luck with the 395 I had. Had bearing trouble and switched over to the MS 660 and never looked back.

    Stihl? I think I have heard of them, they have the tv show with the saws and stuff? I didn't know they actually sold them to real people, I thought that was just for companies, do they acually have dealers that will sell this stuff to individuals?

    Is that going to be like the timber saws I see on tv, or something else? Will that let me take down a tree 48" across? Do you have a better recomantation for me than the wild thing?

    The only trouble we have with our 394s and395s is with the mufflers. the ms660 is a great saw, I have used them before.

    I like both brands . The inboard clutch is nice if you run a long bar. Never had the chance to pilot a wildthing.I might have to buy one for fun.

    I'm all set with the wild thing. I'll stick with my Huskys and Sthils.
