    Just picked up the stihl ms 362 with an 18" bar yesterday. Great saw!

    I'm breaking out the MS390 with 20" bar. Got two huge maples to remove. :)

    How do you like your MS260PRO?

    I am very pleased with it. It has proven to be very reliable and can pull up to a 16-inch bar without trouble. I put most of my hours on the 260 any more since most of what I use a chainsaw for anymore is simple clean up from storms, etc. My larger saws are used when I go up north and help a friend cut firewood for his home for the winter. Enjoy your 362.

    I have the 445 X tork. Just about as nice as my MS210 STIHL. But, The STIHL has easier access to the spark plug and air filter than the 445

    Yes, there are several makes and styles that are much better than the factory "safety/low kick back" chain.

    Go to Bailey's web site and take a look around. They're a sponsor here.
