My brothers and sisters are most likely going to buy a new saw for my dad for his birthday. Probably going to be a Stihl since that is all he keeps looking at since using mine. Question is going to be which one. He and I do most of our wood cutting and splitting together. So, I will usually have my MS261 and MS660 along, and will be buying a MS170 right after tax season (i.e., when I get back to some serious cutting again). Was thinking about getting him an MS261 just like mine, but then thought why have two of the same saws on the job most of the time. So, I am leaning toward the MS362 for him instead. He will have his Craftsman as a backup/limbing saw when he is not with me. What do you guys think? MS261, MS362, MS440, MS460, or something else entirely?
