Use search button at top of page.  Try "361".  A lot has been said already. Get a 361 if you can.

880's aren't very popular, they weigh too much, and cost too much.  Might even cut too much ;)

And most the guys I read on here don't recommend buying a 362.  So maybe search "362" instead.

Seems that some 362s are already coming up on Ebay and elsewhere. Some people are not too happy with them I guess, or they are being flipped after being used after snowstorms and the like. That is typical around here. Homeowners buy a pro saw and use it to clean up windthrow and fallen trees, and decide they are too much saw for them or they have no use for it other than cutting up the one tree that they have on their property.   
Stihls: 440R, 361, 360, 310, 260, 211, 020T. Husky: 372xt.
I ship Stihl saws down under: message me for details.
