well after killing myself earlier this year with my 42cc craftsman saw i decided to break down and buy a real saw. a tree guy friend recomended the stihl 361. so today i went in the back to cut and split some wood. man that thing is a beast. it has a 16" bar on it and cuts through the 14" diameter oak (that was stalling the old saw) like butter. before my son was waiting for me to get the logs cut so he could split them. now it cuts so fast i get way ahead of him. that old saying is right in this case i guess. you get what you pay for. this thing is gonna really speed things up. my 4 way splitter really works nice too. really cuts down on the time splitting takes in my opinion. here are a few pics of my tools thanks for all the info i have read on this site.
