STIHL MS361 would cost you 620$ if you put a 25" bar on it.
The 361 is a great saw though. I was going to go with a 361 instead of the 290, but I couldn't bring myself to spend 600 bucks on something that won't make me one red cent.
I know it will, but if continue doing this kind of work I'll need one anyways, but I've got a little money in the account so that job wont be paying the whole $600..
I looked at a 361, but like you said, thats a huge freakin price tag! I am going to look at a 290, thats what we were using on the pond and it was a decent saw..
