Back in 1992 when I bought my 80 acres I bought a commercial steihl chainsaw model 034. Its been nickle, and dimeing me lately. I went to the local dealer to get a spark plug, a new fuel hose because mine was rotten and sucking air, a new air filter, and a screw that broke on the guard. I talked to the salesman about replacing my 034. He said the ms 361 was slightly more power than my 034. Well I know how modern equipment power ratings never produce the amount of power that older equipment did si I bought the next bigger saw than what the salesman said replaced my old one. I bought the MS 440. http://www.stihlusa.com/chainsaws/MS440.html Kinda pricey, but I cut close to 20 pulp cord of wood per year, and I dont intend on buying another saw for 20 years. I want something that will last. I heat with wood, and boil maple syrup with wood. I cant wait to get home this evening!
