    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    It is auto adjusting on timing and fuel delivery which are the "traditional" things you would change. It supposedly does a really good job at it though so you shouldn't need to. If I were 100% certain the technology would always work and never need fixing it is compelling.

    Muffler mod and tune first.

    Either that or I end up using my weed wacker.

    Pretty sure I can with the electronic ones too...but in the case they complicate shit I don't want to bang my head against the wall anymore than I have to.

    Exactly why I want a simple carb'd one too. It will sit full of gas for a year and be used 3x. Terrible on 2 strokes so I want to be able to easily clean it.

    I want a big one too...but 99.9% of what I do is cut up stuff that I can sometimes just break by stomping on it while one end is up on a rock. Yes a handsaw would be fine...but I LOVE the smell of snowmobile oil so I will use a chainsaw for that shit.

    Going to drive by MN Saw next week. They carry Husky & Stihl. Ought to give me a baseline. Can't find the Dolmar or Makita in town which should be a red flag...but I won't be in a jam where I can't wait a day for parts anyways. Both my neighbors have saws, you have one... The Dolmar is always cited as having the nicest running single cylinder engine in the saw market. Really makes me want one...but shit, I also would prefer something mainstream in that the resell value will obviously be higher. Exactly why I will visit MN Saw. Want to figure out the real skinny on the carb setups available and more importantly hold each one. TONS of great press on the 50cc Husky's as well. All from a handability perspective which quite frankly is the most important thing to me. How does it wield followed by how much power can it make.

    Again all statements above are for 55c and under above that the results are for the orange germans not the red

    The Dolmar supposedly has the best antivibe too...but i looked in our german database and know why since they own one of our laser systems for optimizing hand,arm vibe.

    When Stihl and Dolmar rate the same HP the Dolmar cuts faster. Ie they are torquier or under rated. Shocking to me there are no US brands and that it is dominated by Germany and Scandihoovia.

    Only other problem is you can buy 2 echo's for the price of 1 MS 261...although if it truly is available without the Mtronic it would be my preferred saw. It also HUGELY wakes up with a simple muffler mod, cat removal and tune on the carb.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Stihl dealer told me ALL 261's are Mtronic. Hmm Btw, the 346 you see reviewed nicely is the Husky XP not the Stihl...

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    291 on as well for a reasonable price...but I don't want a heavy beast - or at least if I did I'd want more power.
  18. ///M5

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    There is a 251 that must be stolen on the local classifieds right now since it is priced too low...that or no compression, but I'll test that before taking anything home. Actually don't care if it is low as a rebuild would force me to clean up the ports anyways.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I'd love a Stihl....but the most likely is an old 026

    I didnt notice the switches on the echo that my neigbor loaned me. was the little guy, but either way.

    362 is a tank for the power it makes Muffler mod and restrictor removal and the 261 will dance with it.
  22. ///M5

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    261 is completely m-tronic. 260 not, but almost 1hp less for the same size package. Dolmar kills the 260, loses to the 261, but I am not buying a 261. 261 is also $300 more than the Dolmar.

    C is easy start. M thr computer iirc. Sort of drunk though so perhaps i am wrong. Problem with atihil and husky is they gave up the small market. Only care about the big stuff.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Means when I go to use it I expect to have to clean the carbs.

    I don't mean to worry you...but I am buying this as my small saw for the rest of my life. I won't upgrade/change/sell/buy as I will hardly use it.
