    hey there everyone. i am posting here, because if i go on arborist site it will take about a year for me to get an answer. so here is my dilema. i am finding that i do about one or two days of tree work each week. and all i have for saws now is stihls, an 020T, an 029 farm boss, an 044, and an 066 magnum. what i would like to do, is maybe put the 029 on my lawn rig, so that i have a saw to cut with in an emergency. but for trees, i would like to pick up an 088 magnum, with a 5' bar if i can get one. then i would like to put a 30" bar on my 66. and maybe purchase an 036 for ground work. what do you guys think of this idea?

    the 031 and 036 are too heavy for ground work go with a 025 or 029
