TYPE of CHAIN SAWS USED
« on: December 17, 2009, 11:57:14 AM »

Was just wondering what type of saws do you guys use? The 031AV I use has a 18" bar and was given to me by my dad two years ago when I bought my OWB. I would like to get a new Farm Boss next year and keep the 031AV as a back up!

Husky 345 16" & 18" bars
Huskey 359 20" bar
Dolmar PS-420 16" bar changed to .325 chain in lieu of 3/8 low profile that came on saw
Bought Dolmar for spare saw but after using will probably use 345 for spare.

Husky 350 w/ 18" bar
Stihl 290 w/ 18" bar

One will go down to 16" bar and other up to 20" bar as soon as all the chains I have wear out!

I love my FARM BOSS with an 18" bar.  Nothing it can't handle.

Craftsman  18" bar       Good saw, it has cut way more wood then I ever thought it would.

McCulloch Pro Mac 610 20" bar      Good 'ol saw. She has been good to me.

Stihl MS 361 with a 20" bar.  I use the non-safety chains and they cut real well!

Stihl MS 260 w/ 18" bar
Poulon wild thing

I've used the poulon a lot and still is in pretty good shape for a cheap saw; just not very comfortable to use with no vibration damper.   Good backup saw.  I am waiting for it to die so I can get a Stihl MS 361.  I think the 361 is the best all around saw for size, weight & power.

I have a Husqvarna 346XP with an 18" Bar and Love it. Nice Balance, good power, I cut firewood and cut white pine logs and pulp up to 30" diameter that we sell as saw logs.

Keep it sharp, file every tank of gas.
