This is one of the best saws available today, and has been for a long time.
The MS260, previously known as the 026 has been in the Stihl lineup for 20 years, and is one of their best selling saws.
Why is it best selling, why have they kept it around so long, because it works. Same reason that Coke does not mess with their beverage recipe.
It is a small, dependable, lightweight powerhouse used daily by tree professionals world wide. We have three of them (one is actually a 026), and run them almost every day of the year.
Love them, and you won't go wrong if you pick one up.
Like the other post here, the 361 is a better pick if you want to run longer bar/chain, but for a smaller saw the 260 is the best you can place your money on.
Any cons -- the price.. it is not the least expensive saw in its class.. but it is one of the best/
