    Since you’re asking.

    Stihl 201tc/Husky 576.
    Iím condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    I haven’t tried everything but from what I personally have to choose from, 201tc and 660. A modified 661 is on my list for next season.

    Trimming Stihl 150TC
    Removals Stihl 200T (I still haven't ever purchased a 201)
    Big wood and felling Husky 372XP or 395XP (modified)

    When Stihl dropped the 200T I bought six of them. Still have 5 running. When they all wear out I'll look for a replacement but I'm hoping they last me another 10 years.

    T200 ( We've still got enough 200's to last us a while) and MS 661

    If I'm felling smaller stuff MS 461

    I didn't do too much climbing before realizing people my size should stay on the ground, but I have an 020T, and I use a 395XP for everything else. If I was to buy another saw, it'd be a 395 XP so I wouldn't have to change bar lengths. Probably have to have three of them before I thought about getting a different size saw. Probably an 880.

    Climbing 150t, 200t (just took a 201t out of the box and run it for half a tank, jury's out)
    Felling MS 260 then 461...

    Ported 200t's ( got 3 to go at) then ported 440/441. Maximum power, minimum weight
    To gain that which is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else.

    Heavier saws come up the tree as I come closer to the ground.
    My Echos are growing on me. I just they had better dawgs
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.
