I have been on here for a while and my saw collection has been growing to the point my wife has begun to notice. I started with an 036 that I purchased from a member here. That was good for a year, then I found a mint ms460 that has been my go to saw for the past 5 years. Recently I picked up a 372xt and a totally OEM early 064 from an older gentleman who bought it new. The 064 is amazing starts first pull but it’s over 30 years old which I’m not sure about. It does have 150psi of compression and wears the bar it came with when it was purchased.

Now my wife is saying that I need to start thinning the herd but it’s hard for me to decide. They have all been dead reliable and I find myself grabbing the 372 first because it’s just so smooth. I’m here for opinions, what would a good two saw plan be? I only cut 4-6 cords a year and do the odd tree job with a friend.

I'd be looking for a new wife.....😆
Do they help heat your home? Those four saws combined would equal one or two tanks of heating oil.
I currently have approximately 15 saws plus a bunch in parts/pieces. My wife does not give me grief about them. Occasionally I sell off a few but only if it makes sense to me. Several will never be sold.

Yeah, you need to renegotiate. If you have less than 10 saws you don’t have enough. If you’re going to put one on the block, definitely the 036. That should help you fund the 50cc saw you currently need.

When they say three saw plan that means three of each model lol.
I need 1 more 036 and can then put another together. If the deal is right I might be interested.

if it were me and my wife was going to force me to sell a saw it would be the 036 as well. i wouldnt sell the 064 ever just because it is a good saw and they are becoming harder to find for a reasonable price. the 460 and 372 are good all around work horse saws that back each other up nicely. now if you can sweet talk your wife into keeping them all i would do that first.

So the dog and wife are refusing to leave. I'm in agreement the 036 should go first, so that might have to be a compromise. As far as 50cc goes, I had an 026 that I gave to my brother because it didn’t feel much different to me then the 036, just down on power. The other thing I am noticing is how hard it is to find parts for an 064 compared to every other saw I’ve had. You would think with how many people refuse to get rid of them there would be more parts.

Well you could sell the 064 and get a 395, but you should keep a 90cc.

In 50cc, 346, 261, 5100…maybe 4910. 026 is B-team.

But let’s think porting for a minute. That would be a great way to get more saw, but still have the same number.

What saw would be better for porting the 460 or the 372?

Rookie. You're not supposed to put them all in the same place at the same time. C'mon, you're just asking for them to be counted!

A lot of guy's are pussy whipped
My neighbor hid a yz250 at my house for 5 year's from his wife
Because he was afraid of her finding out
I got tired of looking at it and rode it to his house to make him take it back
He let me have it so she wouldn't find out.
