    For a mulit-use chainsaw you can't beat the Stihl Farm Boss 20"

    Check out the battery powered self sharpening Oregon chain saw for light use

    That's what I thought, but BB says the 271 doesn't have the hp for a 20" bar

    After 5 refills, the MS250 has come into it's own. An extra 2 " would come in handy so it would be easier to buck logs on the ground

    #Gambit, "that's what she said "

    Farm Boss with an 18" for heavy work, 20" for bucking smaller pieces. I should have got one.

    If you don't cut trees for a living, a Husqvarna will last you forever.

    Our property was once part of a tree farm, Southern Yellow Pine planted 12 X 6 - like corn in rows 12 feet apart with trees every 6 feet.
    The bulldozer guy pushed down trees to make the 150 foot long drive way, an area for the mobile home, and area for the septic tank and drain field. Just pushed them down an into big piles around the clearings.
    In one year, I cut up those 40 foot tall trees into pieces I could pick up and put into the bed of my truck, and took them to the county land fill. I kept the scale tickets, and in one year I had cut and hauled 22,000 pounds of pine trees. I wore out a Poulan, bought a Husky, and she still works fine 20 years later.

    The reason y'alls saws run poorly is most likely because you are using ethanol gasoline. For many years I have used 89 octane non-ethanol gas I treat with Sea Foam and Star Tron Enzyme Treatment in all my small engines. They crank right up even after sitting for up to a year.

    RPD is correct. I used Mid Grade, + 10% ethanol fuel

    I ran it out and dry in my Stihl MS250

    I went through 3 gallons this fall cutting up crap pine

    I need to buy some of that canned gas for my MS251

    The gallon of midgrade I bought for the polar vortex is stale. Time to empty out the snoblowers and 5 gallon gas cans also. Rotate the gas, save on stabil.

    I'm reading this thread and say "shit, I hadn't checked my chainsaws lately"...so I go out to the garage and grab my Stihl MS291 Yard Boss and crank it up...the chain immediately falls off and I;m standing there looking like an idiot. Atleast my Farm Boss is in good shape...if my brother would return it...
