i have a sthil 261 and a husquvarna 550 both are about the same size with 18" bar today i did a limb clean up fell out of a tree......
used the saw in limb it cut great 4-5 " limbs but in 10-12" dia it was cutting but when any pressure on saw it cut really slow i don't do much tree work mostly pole saw and clean ups should i consider getting a bigger saw? not sure what i should consider if i look at another saw? 441? 461?

I have used a Husky 550 with a 20" bar to fell 14-18" Trees no problem. 50cc range saws can handle what you are describing. Just realized this thread is old but hopefully you didn't fork out over a grand for a saw that is overkill for the work you are describing.
