I need to replace my small light weight chainsaw. I have a large chainsaw that does a good job so good to go there.

The light weight saw I use for cutting limbs off the main logs, cleaning out under growth around trees before cutting, and small diameter (1inch to 3") canopy shock trees that are bent over in a bow shape etc.

The saw does get worked hours and hours so I may not be able to go with a cheapy saw.
With that said if you do have a cheapy that you have had good use with, please let me know.
I am not against anything that works, just trying to explain this saw wont be a just for the occasional use type saw. This saw will have to run.

The larger saw handles all of the cutting of anything with substance to it so that allows me to be able to get a light one which is important for cutting in tight spots, spots that are located up/high. I am looking at "Light weight " first and "CC/Power" second, well throw in "Dependable" being more important than either. The sole reason I am replacing my current light weight is it is NOT dependable.

For a featherweight, I *really* like my echo 2511t top handle. They're also selling it in a rear handle configuration in the US now. Downsides are the air filter gets dirty quick(at least in the top handle), and the fuel tank is small. Super dependable, and it just wants to start. Prime it, and if I'm quick reducing the choke, I can sometimes get it going in one pull from a cold(40F) start. After running, it's a one pull start.

edit:
Oh, and the stock chain isn't great. Grabby and chattery, but it'll smooth out as it gets used/sharpened. I like Stihl pm on it.

Either suggestion will serve you well although the 261 may be more than what you need and it ain't inexpensive. I have sold, serviced and owned Echo products and that would be my first choice. Do you have a competent servicing dealer nearby? IMHO that is more important than brand.

I have several small saws , 023 stihl, 2 small 240 huskys plus a couple of off brand 40-60cc saws and my go to saw for the last 5-6 years has been the 370 echo with a 16" bar, very easy to start, dependable and strong for a small saw.

I like echo husky and stihl😁
Have all 3 and use daily. But my go to that has been used 10x as much as the others combined is a ms 250. I know its a cheapy homeowner saw but it has served extremely well. But the day it dies it will be replaced with 261.

Thanks for all replies. Unfortunately, there are no dealers close by. I would have to drive a long ways if repairs are needed no matter the brand I buy. So dependable is my main goal.
 
And the small saw I use now eats rewinds often. Granted I can buy those online, and replace myself but it is expensive and halts work. And I do keep an extra rewind on hand now as I have replaced three in the last few months. The rewinds are $30 per piece, so that cost $90 in just a few months. Then I went through 2 clutch covers, but cant recall off hand what those cost. Also just replaced the carburetor which was over a hundred dollars and fortunately my car mechanic agreed to replace it so I didnt have to ship it or drive a long ways. So will start checking out these suggestions and pick up one ASAP. Thanks again.

My Stihl MS193 has been great. No problems. Not thier least expensive saw of that size but much more reliable than a MS180. I always use thier Ultra oil. They doubled the warrenty for buying a 6 pack.

I'd go with an Echo CS-400, same saw as the 370 previously mentioned, but a little more power.  They start easy and are reliable.  I can't imagine replacing a recoil on an Echo, as you don't have to pull them over many times to start.

My MS 251 has gone through the war and back and is still running just like new. I also have a husky 445 Mark II that has also held up surprisingly well for being used 30+ hours a week for 2 years now.   
That being said when both finally die I will be buying a MS 261 cm .

 A Echo cs352 , cs3510, cs370,  cs400 will be quite a bit to  lot lighter than a MS261 Stihl  and will zip through  small branches fast.  Nothing wrong with a MS261, just weighs a couple pounds+  more.  I'd lean towards a cs3510, really light with good power.  Steve

I can't talk about long term reliability but I am currently loving on a MSA220C I got for around the mill because my dad struggles now to start a regular chainsaw.

Couple weeks in and its the best 40cc saw I've ever used. Never thought I'd say that about a battery saw but there it is.

I have an Echo 310 that I use a ton
And its never let me down. Its starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull when cold and 1st pull when warmed up. I know its not a professional saw by any means but for 200 bucks I would buy it again. Really light also.

my Echo 310 is verry dependable and easy starting also.  Might look at the cs3510  becauss it is even lighter with more power.

I have Echo 360 and a Stihl 261 for my lighter saw and both have been great saws. I think if you buy a 261 you will use it most of the time.

I found I dont need a dealer since I found ebay and youtube. Depends what you have for a powerful saw as to what you need as a smaller saw. I use an 066 for power and then I got an 038 thinking it was smaller it would be lighter. Wrong, same weight. I have a n 025 that I am working on getting running. It seems like the size I need for liming.

In older stihl, your last digit odd is clamshell and your last digit even is crankcase.  For stihl guys who want to build a keeper, i suggest the 026 or ms260 pro.  Good saw.  Imo a good competitor against the 346xp.

MS260 if you're on a budget.  Do a little muffler mod and remove the limiters from the carb and turn it up a bit and it'll rip.  MS261c if it's in the budget and you don't like messing around with carb adjustments.

These were very good suggestions and I read every one of them and researched every suggested saw if I was not already familiar with them. I really appreciate all of them as switch brands of saws is no easy task.

I have never owned a ECHO anything but after seeing all of the recommendations on here, I ended up buying a Echo CS 400. 

I was going to buy a less CC in the ECHO to keep the weight lighter but at the last second I seen the weight on the CS400 was the same weight as the Husqvarna 435 that I have been using for the last two years. So I decided a 40 CC saw would be better if my 60 CC Husqvarna saw was ever broke or stuck in a bind. I cant say enough about the 60 CC Husky as it has cut acres of Sweet Gums, Sugar Maples etc. My son told me that when someone sees my land never mention that it was done by chainsaws because they will never believe it.

Today I used the CS 400 off and and on cutting limbs from logs then cutting the log with the 60 CC. The ECHO 400 cut really quick and a lot of power. The temp never got out of the 30s today and the saw stated effortlessly every time. It has two bolts to hold the chain tight which is a must, and I will never buy another saw that only has one bolt. Only time and use will tell how durable this saw will be but initial results I could not be happier. Very grateful for the suggestions. I would not have ever thought of ECHO had I not posted on here and asked. Also, right before dark I decided to push the saw a little and cut the top limbs of a gum with the ECHO, the limbs were about 8 inches in diameter and it went right through them quickly, never bogged.

The cs400 is a great saw. I've used mine a lot, and done a lot of brush slashing, which means I was swinging it around using 100% arm strength. It naturally gets tiring after awhile, but it really is a lightweight, and I've spent many hours with it in my hands.

You might want to consider a muffler mod and retune. I can't compare to stock cause I modded mine before I really used it, but everyone says it really wakes them up.

Bought the echo 3510 to replace my 310  A bit lighter with more power.  Had the dealer put a 14 in bar on it.  Today at  7 degree out my ms 261 wouldnt start,  my ms 241 took 10 pulls to start.  The 3510 took 2 pulls to start.  Was impressed with it cutting through 12 in dead ash.  So far not impressed with my 261cm.  very cold it is hard to start.  Hot weather hard to start.  Runs good when it runs.  Dealer says nothing wrong with it.

If your primary concern is weight, look at a 2511P. Less weight than a battery saw once you add the battery weight.  I have been happy with mine. As far as the long run, I have only 8 tanks and four weekends with mine.  Time will tell.  But on red oak I have been happy with it's performance.  For me I was looking small and light, and this little 25cc saw fit my needs.

Trapper, on your 261cm have you done the reset/calibration like in the manual? I never have, because I've never had an issue with mine but it would be worth looking into. It's -15 out right now, my 261 is out in the cold shed and hasn't been started in a month. I bet 5-6 pulls and it would be ready to rock.

Barbender book didnt have reset procedure in it  looked it up on the forum in holman tree thread and ran it with my wife timing me.  Dosnt seem to help  At about 10 degree I tried to start it and wouldnt start.  Used my new little echo that started in 2 pulls.  Half hour        i tried again and it started  Has done that several times.  In hot weather  it often does the same thing.

they have had trouble with the fuel module, and my dealer put a newer one in my 261 despite the test being ok.  now it runs all the time.  must have an intermittent problem, that of course does not happen at the dealer.

I can't  recommend any more modern saws because quite frankly I don't own any .However for a light weight the 024-026 Stihl's do a nice job.I have an .024 myself .Not an oak slayer unless you have lot of time but a good limber ,lighter cuts as a firewooder etc .Light as a feather and have enough power plus parts are  available at your friendly neighborhood Stihl dealer .For that matter available at your not so friendly dealers also .

The little Echo CS-3510ES works really great here so far. Will see how easy it starts when it gets below freezing here in Norway in a month or two. I have a larger 50cc saw and only uses the small Echo for small trees and cutting off the branches etc. Bought it a cople of months ago and it came with a 14" bar and 0.050" Oregon chain (91PX053G). The 14" Echo bar is rather narrow, so I bought the Oregon 120SXEA041 12-inch bar which has a larger radius nose-wheel (9 teeth) and put on the Husqvarna X-cut S93G 45DL chain. It cuts great. The Echo runs better and better now after 7-8 tanks of fuel thru it, but I strongly suggest to let a professional chainsaw mechanic adjust the carburettor on it. Mine did not run great out-of-the box, it needed a bit of adjustment. The EU-model has no carb limiters caps on them, but in stead the adjustment needles (L and H) has a special cylindrical shape with a flat portion on one side (single-D). I did find the special tool for it online. So I did adjust it myself, but it was tricky to adjust. Ideally one should have a tachometer and adjust the H-needle for no more than 13.000 rpm I believe (the manual states max 13.300 rpm). It's better to have it run a tiny bit too rich than too lean, so it don't over-rew and get too hot and get damaged.

Here is a video I made with the small 12-inch Oregon bar and the Husqvarna X-cut chain:







Weight with full tank of oil and gas with Oregon 12" bar and chain is 10.4 Lbs. So it is easy to carry. My 50cc saw weights about 14.9 Lbs.

I would say a 261 is overkill for 1-3 branches but none the less not necessarily a wrong choice since its still fairly light and nimble. I would go with a ms250 for that. I think the ms250 is great up to 12-14 stuff, and light enough to justify carrying it around for 1 limbs

I like the 261 with an 18 or 20 inch bar, as it is easier to reach a limb on the ground without bending over so much.   8)
I would like to try an echo saw sometime.

I like the 261 with an 18 or 20 inch bar, as it is easier to reach a limb on the ground without bending over so much.   8)
I would like to try an echo saw sometime.
I would say if all you’re doing is limbing the 250 could run the 18 inch bar no problem, probably even fell with it fine. But yeah you’re right a 20 inch bar. I do have a 026 with 18 but I end up using the 250 with 16 for limbing more often than not. For bucking firewood on the ground though I do enjoy using the 500i, only had it a few months, only 20” on it now, ordered a 28 and 36 and still waiting. It is nice and light for what it is

If I am putting up firewood, or trimming for the mill, I might have a variety of cuts so I like the idea that I can do what is needed.  I also try to not get too many saws out.  I have never ran over one with the track loader...yet!   :o :) :D  I want to keep it that way.

Things do happen   unfortunately .I resurrected a once good running  Stihl BG -85 blower that lost the battle with a 7,000 pound brush chipper .The worst I ever did was backing into a 10" I beam column with a bull dozer .It took some rather creative repair work on the concrete pier to fix it . < long story ---
