Since passing my Certificate of competence for chainsaws in 2007, I have not used any other saws apart from Stihl. I find them simply the best for the job! I have used a MS200, 036, MS 361 and now a MS 260. For me the 260 is a brilliant ground saw as I have used one solidly everyday over the last winter and also over this winter too. I have had very little fail on me and is more than capable power wise for felling small trees. To date the only thing that broke is the front chain break spring. Working for the council we tend to test these pieces of equipment to destruction and touch wood, I have never had a 260 fail on me, or fail to start!! Our arbor team also use the 260 for their main ground saw as it is compact and powerfull enough to cope with even some of the toughest of jobs.
