    I also have a 441 with a 25 bar on it that works well. Good combo if you have smaller saws to do the lighter stuff with. Unless you are a big guy that could use it as an all arounder. But me at 140lbs that saw is about the same size as me so I bring it out for the occassional big tree.

    ya the 441 isn't heavy by any means for me being 190lbs with under 10% bf, but its not designed for limbing a tree....can i limb trees with it all day long and cut up bigger wood with the 28" bar yes, but its not any faster, its actually more of a nuisance vs. just using a 201t with a 14" which is made for cutting limbs and small wood. especially with pine trees having so many limbs.
