New Stihl MS 261

I got my new Stihl MS261 today as I've sold my 280 CBQ to my buddy who's burning wood this winter. Unfortunately, it was dark when I got home so I couldn't try it out, but I started it up and I love it so far, Very light, and tough, instead of certain plastic parts, magnesium. (chain cover for starters) Got the 18" bar, as its very balanced with it instead of the 20". My Amish Stihl dealer said its one of Stihl's fastest running saws, 1500 rpm faster than the next fastest. And its a couple lbs lighter than my 280 and cranks out .25bhp more. I'll let you guys know how it cuts after I test er out! Can't Wait!
