The MS261 con 16" does all I need.....and it is still fun.

No doubt it's like most things: the more you know the less you need.

Used the 661 and 42" bar to rip this 40-42" pine down the center. Sorry, in progress or after pics.

Went pretty well. It was certainly work but not bad. Tried a plunge cut just for fun and it's certainly different with the long bar. Takes more pressure to make the nose bite in instead of just climbing up the bark. Both halves have been cut up on the sawmill and the lumber and slabs are stickered and drying. Some really nice looking 25" slabs if they behave themselves while drying.

Looking forward to putting the 28" bar on and cutting some regular sized wood. The 20" bar I put on the Echo 680 sure feels better than the 24" did.
