I'm focusing in on one of these two saws as my next acquisition. Given the theoretical situation of two saws on CL, both appear to be in "good condition", one the 026 and the other the 260. The 026 is a little cheaper but price is not the real issue to me, its features of the saw. Is there anything more desirable about the older 026 that make it more desirable than the newer 260. Given, the one is older than the other, and might need repair sooner, I'm not worried about that. Parts are available for both and I feel I can do the work when/if necessary. I'm mostly refering to the things I have read here about "pre-EPA" saws and such being better, and in many cases the "0" series saws being better than the "MS" ones. Let me know ASAP if you can, I need to move at first light tomorrow on the 026 if I want it. Thanks folks!
