    never had any 088 problems. that seems odd. i have an 090 decades old that has had no problems other than an anti vibe mount. you may either have a bad mechanic or your crew is hard on your stuff? i have a small business (very high end though) and nobody runs my big saws except maybe to cut a stump when i am around. i have owned just about every saw stihl has ever made i think except the HO models.

    Among other reasons, with a ms 200 you can get through a cut on a lateral situated branch in a tree before the tip passes the butt where you are cutting and make it belly flop on the ground (land flat). With slower cutting saws like the cheaper quality offering from Stihl, the tip will pass the butt and when the branch lands on the tip all kinds of bad things can happen as there is no guessing where it will come to rest. It can even sometimes be "heaved" or thrown as the holding wood will hinge and release and throw it into a house or garage or toward your unexpecting help.

    I understand completely Andy. It is a pleasure to associate with you on here I might add.

    Maybe compare it to a tree. The tree initially puts growth in unseen areas. Roots, structural and fibrous are growing and people often say, "that damn tree is not doing very well". Then it explodes with canopy (relate to intellectual) growth after it's growth (learning) base has been established.

    The more you learn, I believe, the more exponentially one is capable of further learning.

    It becomes fun too. Especially on a good forum. :D

    Hey anyone know what the difference betwwen the lightweight model 192 and the regular model?

    I looked on their site but could not find it.

    Also what size bar do you all recommend for the 192 t I was thinking of going with the 14" but might get the 12".

    What do you all think. is the extra 2" on the bar worth the extra weight?

    yeah I know the 200t is way better, I was going to buy one but I think I am Going to wait till I get beack into the swing of things it has been 7 years since I climbed So I am a little rusty. Also I only climbed for about 6 months or so.

    The 200t can really put a hurting on ya if you aren't used to it.

    I was also thinking about a cs 330t

    But am not sure. Supposedly they are going to have some big discounts on stihl next weekend at our dealers open house. So we will see. They will also have one of the Stihl traveling trailers there so you can try out all the different equipment. So I might change my mind after trying it out.

    I really would like to stay away from husky's because of bad experience with them, but what do you all think of the 334t or the 338xpt?

    Thanks again

    I have the money for a 200t just a little worried about it getting away from me at first.

    You know when you don't respect and/or fear your equipment. That is when it gets you.

    Do yourself a favor, and buy a ms200 its worth the difference in price. I have a 192 and it is a dud :cry:. No power, doesnt turn as fast (revs) just not a good buy :cry:. Never heard of the light weight model but would imagine it has more plastic that the regular already has. If you must mine has a 14" maybe a 12" might pep it up a little. 200 is the way to go.
