You guys know me, the smallest saw I own is 70cc's other than my pole saw. I am always thinking muscle saw, and gravitate toward them. I feel close to perfection between my 2101, and my 660. If you could give and take, what would you want to add? What would you take away, add power? reduce weight? Change the feel? Color whatever, even as small a detail as color or stickers. What would create the ultimate production Muscle saw?

Very interesting Mike. Husky sure is smooth. True hard to beat the handling and slim design of the 660. I recently talked to a leading tree service owner here. He siad they went to small bars for the 660. Thought they do not know what we do, never even heard of a dp muffler. But obviousily realized the new saws are a little choked down. I saw they were using 088's alot, and 880's. His foreman is trying to get him to run Stihls on the small side, and Husky on the big side. They do like the 460 though. I still think the 100cc displacement is where it is.

Hmmm, good one Jason Ole buddy you guys have a favorite yet, who has the edge on the new technology. Stihl 441, or husky design 562? Just talking overall design on the new technology.

Pretty sure the 562 is the newest of the new....

I don't think the 441 is generations behind or anything but the 562 is certainly the new kid on the block.... :)


Honestly I think it's gonna come down to porting in order for me to give an answer. Whichever runs strongest / best after a good woods port will be my favorite, lol....

Nice great looking saw too. The newer huskies still seem slim, and nimble. For me it would be the return of the 99cc big boys, with hanlding, design and features crossed between the 044-660-372 combine the best of the three all the best features and ad 99cc's.

This maybe a 372 hunter:p

Well it should be, since the 372 is giving up 8+ cc's to it!

It better bring its "A" game though, with the same B/C, fuel, and wood.

You sure did a good days work when you ported that one Eric!!!

Speaking of muscle saws, I cut all day at work balls to the walls. Headed back to the yard to go home, get a call big widow maker they need me and the manlift. They call it my truck and i am loade to the gills with saws! 046mag 365. 4 ms 200's and a 131 pole saw, and if it gets real ugly, 660, and 3120. it was about a 30 foot dry Eacalyptus limb big forked out. We got it down, and so happens I am about out of dry wood. Brought it home after my long day, made short work and did not want to play around 660! Love that echo of muscle saw through the badlands!
