That's what I like about my MS 362 C-M
I think see a MS362 C-M or larger in my future as well, just wanted a mid sized saw for cleanup. I have some HUGE (48"++) maples still standing on my property, I'll need something bigger for them without going bat crazy.
get one of these. $200-$250 on ebay.
for big jobs get this equipment:
I'm bumping this old thread in the hope that HEMTT will see it and reply back with his opinion on the MS261 C-M after a couple of years of use.
I'm seriously thinking of getting one, and trying to convince myself that "buy once, cry once" is the right thing to do in this instance. An MS250 ($300) or MS271 Farm Boss ($400) would do what I need (clearing fallen trees and cutting up firewood blanks for splitting).
But the 261 ($600) is lighter than the 271, and more powerful than the 250 and 271. I keep thinking that the 261 might be the last saw I ever need to buy and would be worth the extra $$$.
It would be the last saw you'll ever need. I If you need to sell it much higher resale value on pro models. They are worth it!
Buy it, it is amazing and worth every penny!
i just sold a 290 that we had got from a customer who bought it and never used it. sold it on craigslist for $300, it was cherry though.
had another one we sold last year, another 290 that was beat to crap and sold it for almost $200.
its a good saw, but like the other guy mentioned, see if you can find a used 440, the bigger chain is a god send!!
Thanks for the reply on the MS261. Glad to know you're still loving it.
