Or at least the need to upgrade to something bigger (again) . So when does it stop? , or doesn't it? It's inevitable that before this weekend is over I will own another Stihl as well. Something much smaller for limbing/yard work. Here's a brief history. 14-15 years ago I owned a home with a FP. Bought meself a little 029 Farm Boss. Good little dependable saw for the occasional weekender. Sold the home, didn't need the saw, sold the saw. Roughly 3 years ago I moved into a new home with 2 FP's. That led to one insert and now a bigger 30 and the smaller insert last spring. When I moved into here I bought another Farm Boss, now the 290. That lasted until last spring which I traded it in on an 044. The 044 had a new jug/piston. A little beat up or maybe used is the correct term but she runs great. I went with a 20" full chisel chain. For 95% of what I cut this saw meets the requirements and then some. But recently I've been searching CL for bigger, badder, stronger, more HP (sigh). Typically once I start down this road something will get bought . As it looks anything over say an older 064 weighs about the same. Probably similar to my current saw. The 064 would be the minimal jump I'd make if I make it. But geeshzzz.... for the love of god how much HP do I need? I guess it's more of a want. So I found this: http://appleton.craigslist.org/tls/3338651276.html and then this one that is so much saw I'm not sure what I'd do with it? http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/tls/3304537524.html So I'm here, at saws anonymous, either looking for a push over the edge or for someone to talk me down.
