    Not yet, it was missing the bottom aluminum tank handle skid plate, WC cover and the full tank of fuel.

    Can someone please post a comparison, regardless of its validity to others? I personally would like to see comparatively what the difference in power is for the powerheads for the weight difference. If a 462 was significantly lighter and was only a little behind a 7900 or 372, that's something I could deal with. That IS a determining factor for me if it's a tool that's going to live in my hands and make me money.

    Just my personal thoughts.

    It is way lighter.
    With what you are asking for I think you would be a good candidate for it.
    I'd feel the same way if I did more tree work, whats 1200 in comparison to what I'd make.
    As it is most of the work I've done this yr didn't even require a 70cc saw, last year was a different story.
    I've already got a bunch of 70cc saws stock and ported so I'll be fine until you guys do all the beta testing for me.

    That's funny stuff there.
    Did you notice the stihl had a 25" bar on it lol.

    All three look great to me.
    I've never held a 70cc saw that was lighter, but there are so many other factors that come to mind for me.

    Some of these threads lately make me question my understanding of the English language. I swear some threads are simply portals to other dimensions.

    And then you hit some metal and all that time gained from ported power is lost.

    A 395 is a boat anchor compared to a 661, and stock they don't impress me. Ported is a different story, but I have also seen some real strong ported 661s.

    Not all ported saws are created equal, even by the same builder. And sometimes conditions change, one saw likes hard wood, another soft, or hot temps, or cold, or long bar vs short bar, etc etc.

    Bottom line, if you have a saw that runs good for what it is, that should be fine. My 044 will not run with a well ported hybrid, but it runs real good with a 20" bar on it, and the Strong Hybrids get 28" bars.

    For me, a ported 372 or Hybrid is about the best all around saw … they both have great power to weight and great cut speed. Others may prefer larger saws, while others prefer 60 or 50 cc saws. That is fine. Use what works for you.

    If you take 6 ported 661s and 6 ported 395, it is unlikely that either brand will win each race, an there is no shame in owning the slowest of the batch, as long as it is a competitive performer.

    Have a good evening guys.

    I enjoy reading all these posts. Have always been a husky man! 3,72's mainly. I have to make a living with my saws in the timber. When a person has saws and parts that are interchangeable it it's easier to stay with one brand. I think whichever one chooses should be alright equipment. Everybody be safe and enjoy what they are running!
