Treeclimber57's review of Stihl MS 260

We use several saws in daily use (as an Arborist). We have primarly saws from Husqvarna and Stihl, with a few Echo's in the mix.



We run Stihl's from the 200T up to the MS660 (we used to have 2 X MS880's and years ago had an 090 as well) However this is about the smaller end of the lineup.



The 026 and newer MS260 is an excellent saw with power to weight ratio, and one you can run all day long, every day of the week. Like any saw, they do require some care and maintenance, but nothing beyond what might be expected. These saws are used daily by the whole crew (nine guys), all of whom are professionals. The two most favored saws in the mix are the MS260 and MS361. While personally I prefer the MS361, the MS260 will run a close 2nd. This is a fine saw, and if handled properly will last you for years (we have five of them in the mix).

Woodcutter's Response to Treeclimber57's Review

I found this review very helpful because it is accurate, and well stated.
<br/>
<br/>One of the best resale value saws available.
<br/>
<br/>Check eBay.. you will find the MS260, MS360/1 and MS440/1 hold the best value by far. In fact for holding resale value no other saw compares or comes close to Stihl.
<br/>
<br/>Other good saws out there, yes by all means. But none hold value as good.
<br/>
<br/>But once you own one, do you think you would want to sell it? Not likely.

Urban Arborist's Response to Treeclimber57's Review

Good review. The fact other stihl saws were mentioned makes the review more credible. In comparison to a Husky fan who might rant on about how bad the 260 is yet clearly has never used one. By the way, you mentioned you had an 090. You still got it? Those things are a collectable it seems.
