    I would disagree on the 66/660 too. In stock form I found them to be unimpressive.

    Well, for the uninitiated they may seem unimpressive.

    The 661 we just got at the fire department seems pretty impressive.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    My view was skewed because I was spoiled by a modded 460 that was just rank. It made the 'jump' to a stock 660 seem unimpressive. It was more impressive again though once the 660 was modded.

    Stock saws are like a exercise in frustration once you've run modded ones.

    I bet you are right.

    My 460 is pretty nice, but I suspect it is totally stock. I could maybe mod the muffler or something, but it may come as a shock, but I dont use them all that much. Mainly just cutting up fire wood for the wood stove I dont have.

    When things get tough I just grab the Pro Mac 850 and get after it.

    Jim a modded 46 will beat your combine in the wheat field, provided the help can run fast enough

    I can see that,a ported saw is a different case for sure. In the tree I liked the 44 with 28" and skip chain,agile setup for me.
    The 46 is a tad heavier with a bit more power but right now i go straight for my 390 with a 32" with skip tooth after my 201 runs out of umph(little bit of port).
    I did like my temperamental 372 alot.

    That said i got a good running stihl362 i rocked with 28" skip tooth for not hardwood that did fair,got stolen from jobsite. I honestly didn't read this thread yet and am just conversing,sorry if i am off point and topic 😁

    I can't recall the stats off the top of my head but I'm Quite confident that it added up so basically if you were carrying a 44 why wouldn't you carry a 46.
    Between the stock Stihl's, the ms460 used to have the most power to weight ratio. I don't know with the new versions though.

    That's what I thought too?

    I only ran a 24" bar on my 460, that was the standard ground saw. Two 200's or 201's and two 460's with 24" and one 660 with 36" made up the truck.
