I can see where a lot of idling and intermittent cuts like you see in climbing work would be a condition the Mtronic saws could possibly get out of whack. My 261CM has been flawless, great little saw for the type of cutting I do. Which isn't the same as what a tree service does.

I have not seen climbers using a CM261 C-M mostly the Stihl MS150&193s are what most are using.
Curious as to how many crews, states, cooperate companies, and private guys, you base your statement on. Having been in the cooperate tree trimming world, and owner of a private tree trimming business for over 40 years; I cannot make that same assumption. Personally I have had everything from a Super 2 Homelite to a 2100CD Husky in a tree.
As a side note it's common knowledge in the arborist world, that chainsaws suffer from an acute case of air sickness.  If they are going to fail it's going to be when their in the air.  :D

I've had a 362 tied to my saddle, and before I got my 2511, I used an echo cs400.

   I guess I should have said "The tree guys you talked to". My mistake.

But your implying many you know have large chainsaws tied to them while climbing send a picture of this please.
My exact quote was 'Personally I have had everything from a Super 2 Homelite to a 2100CD Husky in a tree.'  

I'm still curious on your vast arborist back round. :)

Happysawer has been removed from the forestry forum and if I ever meet him in person I will smash him in the face for going back and deleting forestry forum content. Nothing pisses me off more.

Congratulations to the OP on the new saw .   When the time comes for a new 50cc saw the ms 261 cm will be what I purchase.

As it turns out this guy is a wpos.  He sent a letter to chet that seals his expulsion and makes me wish he was standing within reach.

No, I did not cut this tree with my new saw!  Decided to post this to end this thread on a happy note!
