    Well the 200T ported with a new recipe is a success.
    Toned down a jug for the next one leaving to run the 16". Not sure about sending it with the ported carb... it's touchy on the H.

    So far the 036 is a fail. Saw is running a bit crappy on the low side but I didn't go through the carb yet... no worries. The shitty part is the black vent tower dumps fuel so bad. Digging out a 360 pro that runs but needs a pto case... busted out chain brake pin area. Maybe that tank is better to mess with, first. Not chopping up this 036. Something does need to get on there to seal it up like these remote vent cans with a duck bill in them 025 style

    No
    Not interested in a heavy saw. Weight to power is just not there. Might be better for you but I don't run small Husky anything.

    Looks like an modified 034 or 360/036 will win out on weight to run a 24" 3/8 50 or the 325 18" 063

    260 is still in the back of my mind but not likely to get all done up to climb with. The parts are here to build one like Doc does.
    038 intake
    Bigger carb but I would keep the domed piston and run much lower compression with the 260 no decomp jug. The air filter getting broke off is the big problem running anything but a closed cover. It could be made HD Stihl but what a pia that could be with a choke or maybe not.
    Ideas are Welcome on that note.

    That’s OK it was just a suggestion I understandI think I agree with you I would look for the old stilh I think the better bill and less plastic

    Less seems more for just this. Going to look up some info on the 034 tank and vent types. The older 200T was easy to update the vent. Same thing with the 066.

    Do Huskys leak when you flip then on the left side? Idk.
    Echos don't.

    That’s a good question. I have not noticed my huskies leaking on the side. But I will also say I’ve only owned my huskies for about five years. My other sauce were stilh
    My top handle is a 200 T after I found out the bottom man was gone in it I also found out it was approximate 20 Old
    Several years ago I put a new piston and cylinder into it. And now it has a new bottom end .I have an 460 which I love that it . Weight and power . but it’s got its miles on it
    My carburetor started to act up on it. I was on a job in New York I wound Wind up buying a husky 562 and to me it’s been a good saw
    I will do your research on the”034
    I work for a company had one and I thought they were a little under power but they were OK but like you said working on putting it probably be a good choice
    And like I said in the past I don’t know what all I’m still learning a lot. And I don’t run my saw full-time. I’m a heavy equipment operator five days a week love my chainsaws on a weekend good luck with your search I hope it all works out in the end what your show

    My Dolmars and Makita saws don't leak at all.

    This just in...
    Husky top handles have more power, are lighter and cut better because it is a lighter better saw than a 201TCM and a 2511T so... guessing he never took out a muffler screen before lol.

    ... I was told and that is now the law :)

    I have A lot good things about those two saw or is it one Saw now.?
    As of the law of the land laugh about it. But it’s whatever fits your bill and what you like if it’s echo stihl, husky, Mac, like for me I came from a heavy residential area of s NJ so stihl is what I knew . Then I moved
    My 562 was my first husky that I was gracious to meet Bob on now I own several of them I can’t complain we all have our favorites stihl026 I bought when I was 18

    I like 562 with a 20” or 24” skip. But I would rather have a 346 20” and a 372 24”. All ported, of course.

    A ported 360, 361, 362, 357, 359, 562 are all pretty close in performance, depending on who does the work. Any of them could be good for 20” wood. They’re just heavy for smaller cuts and underpowered for bigger ones. The 359/272 hybrid could be a stellar blocking saw, if I could ever find a 272 jug at a reasonable price.​

    I really like a muffler modded 361. For all around mid size use. I am going to recommend a 440 hybrid or 460. Good power and pretty maneuverable in the tree. Imo.

    I would not hesitate to say a 462 either. But I have way less experience with one.

    I dont like dulling or having to touch up more saws than necessary. I would use either my 201t 350 for the top work then to a 440 or 460 till the stump. Unless it is big then 660 or 084/780.

    i used to climb with a stihl 026, when I worked for someone else and i used my husky 357xp when i started working for myself. I really like both saws my husky was the saw i bought to climb with and i used it every day for several years i also used a 455 rancher before the 357. i didnt care about it being 15lbs it has a 20" bar and full comp square ground pro chisel chain. it cuts really good after the muffler mod it is noticably better. I dont climb any more and dont use it every day but am still sending it to tree monkey for port work just because

    It has always been like that around here. When the homies and macs became second fiddle to Stihl that never changed in this area.

    My 360 Pro is here now and it has a vent cap like the 200T takes with the single fuel outlet and the the remote vent canister in black. The missile launch rack looking deal. This one snaps directly to the tank housing.

    My 260 is going to get built up someday, maybe.
    361's are plentiful here so that still remains an option. Plus I can still look for an 034 or 034S.

    359 is good base setup imo.

    Looks like I'm going to build and sell the hybrid four series.

    462 will be in the mix but only for longer bars over 24"
