    I'll start. When I get thru this current custody/divorce situation, Im gonna hunt....

    At the top of my bucket list would be a McCulloch 125 or 797.

    The saws on my radar (more likely to obtain eventually) are:
    - Nos Dolmar (branded) 7900 or 7910. I don't want an orange Makita, has to say Dolmar... Im a purist. lol
    - Stihl 261CM Arctic

    After the initial shock I’m happier about mine. 20 days left before it’s final.

    Only saw I may be interested I. Is a new 681.

    Poulan Pro 655 BP is at the top for me, was a 125 but thanks to my friends here that one is proudly sitting on my display shelf.

    On the radar is a Poulan 5200/5400 or the Craftsman equivalent.

    One of those military 281’s you see for sale in europe occasionally, with the crate and stuff.

    At the moment my list has a Sachs Dolmar 166, a new Dolmar 9010, a teal Makita EA5000, and a Solo 681. Keeping my eyes out for a 242xp and a 254xp as well.

    I’m just waiting for my saw funds to replenish before I go looking for them. Lol

    I’d like a really clean 346xpg or its Jonsered equivalent at a fair and realistic price.

    441

    Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment, but these strato saws intrigue me. And supposedly the 441 is smooooooove.

    Lol personally I'd like to find something 80cc or bigger to play with. All I can find around here is 72cc and down.

    If a relationship is toxic and there's little chance of rectifying the situation, it's better to shut it down ASAP.

    My all-time bucket saw is a Burnett Wildcat or one of the other Burnett two-man saws and I think I have a lead on a Wildcat.

    I'm also after a Rexo two-man saw but I don't think any Rexos were sold on this side of the pond.
