At my decrepit 58 years, I'm down to a 361 with 18 inch bar. I cut and forward about 90 to 100 cords/month. I have a 24 that I use on trees bigger than 40 inches, but of course the balance is way off, and you have to grip the saw tighter, fatiguing your arms. Well designed saws are balanced for the proper length bar. The best balance I've ever seen is the 372/2171 with a 20 inch. As for bore cutting, I use it most of the time with the plunge cut method for trees with any size to them. For brands I recommend Stihl, Husky or Jred.
