I have been told that the reason that Stihl currently is loosing saw sales in the PNW to the Husky 390xp and 395xp is that that neither the MS661 nor the MS461 is holding up in that environment. It hardly is a coincidence that the development is as it is, with Stihl saws out, and (much older) Husky ones in. 
Hearsay - the currency of a true "troll", inadmissible in court, worthless.  Any facts to support this?  I'd love to see them.  I try to keep my mind open.

 that's s beautiful pile of firewood you have there and a really nice saw!
Pickaroon work great. For the smaller rounds have you tried a pair of tongs? I use my tongs more then my pickaroon .

Thanks! Just trying to stay ahead for once! What kind of tongrs are good?
These ones I got are what Husqvarna sells. I have a couple of older Stihl ones and they are just as good if not a little better quality.
2 sizes . These are the large size.

Well then I will order a pair of Stihl's and let ya know what I think.
Thanks for your knowledge! :)

Woodsburner19 and grandpa,
Here's how the Swedes handle wood.
These pics are from 1975.
