Thought it would be interesting to post up what your main saw is and what you have done to it. This is my 311 with a 20" bar, Stihl yellow chain and aftermarket dogs.

I don't take a lot of pictures, but I already had this one in the gallery...




That's my big boy saw; a 362cm. The only thing I've done to it is take out the spark arrestor.


This is my cs400, which has been getting more run time lately. Shown here wearing a PoulanPro bar...





It's had the cat gutted, and the spark arrestor removed.

I also have 362(not cm) that looks the same as first, but with a 20" laminated bar, and not modified at all. Lastly, I have a cs2511t. That's had the spark arrestor removed.


edit:

I forgot I had a pic of my 2511t. Shown with an apple for scale since I didn't have a banana  :^P




That's really a fun little saw. I haven't had much chance to use it yet, but I'm looking forward to giving it a good workout. It's got full chisel green chain, and it's a little grabby. Too much so for the engine size I think. I'm gonna make a loop of semi chisel yellow chain, and see if that's a better match. Smaller chain all around would probably be better, but I like being standardized on 3/8 and 3/8lopro for all my saws. Keeps chain management simplified.

No cool action shots tonight, it's 12 degrees out...

MS250 was my go too until I got the MS362 CM and the MS661 CM. Think I'm going to put a 20" bar on the 362 and take the 25" bar and put it on the 661. Really only need the 36" bar for slabbing. My 250 is probably going to sit on the shelf especially cause it's carb is acting up. The 193T is for the rare time im up in a bucket.

Here's my pole saw. It's got a four foot extension, and cost as much as my next two most expensive saws combined.



And until I can find a bigger one that's as cheap as me, here's my big saw. I put gas in it.

Stihl MSA 120 C Which is bone-stock...



 

I plug the charger in where the toaster normally goes if I want a little more "pop"... :D

It served as back-up to the MS241 C-M...



 

I recently was able to purchase a Stihl MS261 C-M for back-up duties, no pics yet.

Here's a photo I had on file from the spring. You figure out which one it is. It's my only workhorse for now. (And yes, I know the chain is too loose.)

Ooh! I got one of those too! I use it for all kinds of stuff that it's too small to cut. And with a too big bar too😀

Nope, that is store bought. I got it at a local loggers supply and the name escapes me at the moment. I'll be honest and say it's too dang cold to walk through the snow to the shop in my moccasins to check the name, but I will look tomorrow. I know they are USA made.  I like the little blade on the back. When I am splitting stringy stuff I use it to cut the strings. I like it so much, I got another, longer one, without the blade for moving logs. Very handy. As you can see, I keep them both handy on my mule all the time.

That little blade's what grabbed my attention. I could use that for just what you said. Cutting split strings. I have small axes, but don't feel like dragging the whole house out to split wood, and having something to pick rounds would be handy. I usually take a maul, two wedges, a big axe, and a splitting maul out to split wood. I could make room for a bladed pickaroon since it would have more than one use.

Dolmar 7900 with 28" bar. 
Overkill for some situations, but that's it sitting on a pine tree stump that's only ~30 years old. 

Need it more for trees like this cypress.

I got it from Sheldon Hill Forestry. I went and checked and they don't have those two on their web site, it is made by "Peavey Mfg. Co." in Maine. The one with the blade comes in 15 to 48" lengths. I like the short length for firewood, and the longer for positioning logs. Here is the Link to the maker's site.

This little farmer saw does about 80% of my sawing - believe I have six or seven of them under different names, Partner, Husqvarna, Jonsereds. 
Certainly not fast, just pleasant to use.

That's an old 111S I inherited. 36" Cannon bar. The oiler ain't working right so it's not a daily user, just my show off saw i guess.

Yup, Radiata pine. That's why it's grown on a 25-30 year rotation.

The other one is Monterey cypress, which can go huge here.
