We just had this exact discussion yesterday, and the day before, and a week ago. Here's a thread you may want to read instead of everybody repeating themselves every day.  ;)

t3cn1c,welcome to the forum.We need more info to really answer your question.What kind of trees you cutting,size too.How much do you cut in a year.A good dealer will point you in the right directions.Find a good dealer and stick with them.Even if you have to travel another ½ an hour for one.Saws are just like Dodge,Ford and Chevys.

  When your making an investment , the old saying is you get what you pay for, this really holds up in a chainsaw. You can save money but in the long run you end up with a saw thats worth nothing.
 I would stay with one of the top three, in the 50 cc zone from a dealer, you will be a happy camper for many years. 8)

Welcome to the forum...I agree with lumberjack, you definately get what you pay for, and since you said that this would be for hobby, a 50cc class saw would prob be a good fit...also as stated above, a good dealer will steer you in the right direction, but you might want to see what they suggest and then do some research on similar saws in that range, you may find something you really like for a little more money (possibly less too), that works better for you...and your definately starting in a good place here

I think the Efco / Oleo-Mac saws are actually made in Italy?

They seem to be pretty good machines and may be priced right if you buy them locally?

Yep, palogger is right about on, just bought one for $600, and theyre getting tough to come by too...if you have trouble finding one maybe a husky 357xp, similar saw to the 361 in specs and price, the 361 is nice though...look back through some threads here on the 361, there might be some guys that can steer you twards a couple...good luck

I think the Efco / Oleo-Mac saws are actually made in Italy?

not only "actually"...efco-oleomac is an italian trademark and (exept for the one hand saws that are made by zenoah) they construct the saws in a small village close to Reggio Emilia (italy). I'm not sure that efco and aleomac can stay at the same level with echo, or dolmar, or stihl or husqvarna...but howewever they are good machines.

600 usd for a stihl ms 361 is a good price..... in italy its over 1000 usd

Wow, maybe we dont have it so bad here in the US, $600 was the price for a new 361, although the Euro spec saw is a little different, believe it has a little more power, less restricted muffler, but dont think Id want to pay $1000...you did mean $, right?

Stihl expressly forbid their dealers from selling online. Their policy is that you must walk into the shop and pick up the saw, assembled, checked and ready to run. Dealers may advertise online, but if they start shipping saws they can get in big strife with Stihl.

So if you do find a new one for sale online it's going to be from a suspect source.
