I'm mulling over my list of needs and chainsaw just came up. I've mainly used Stihl's up at the Hydadel farm and really don't have experience on anything else. I've got slightly under one acre and plan on using it to cut firewood down to size and probably do a little limbing as well.
 
What do you guys use and what would you recommend? I won't be needing one for real heavy use. Something that is reliable is numero uno for me.

 Stihl MS 250 is hard to beat.   I have a newer one and a old 024 ( almost the same saw ).  They are the ones I grab more often than not, unless the job is really big or small.

Is the Easy2start worth the extra $30ish? The C-BE version has the easystart and toolless chain adjuster.

Why are you trying to sell it? Having performance issues?

Just bought the Stihl MS 260 Pro and love it!!! Glad I went with the pro series too.  That inteli carb is nice.  Have run the saw at 9000 feet and 5000 feet and having it auto adjust is great.  Stihl makes a great saw for sure.

the 44 sized saws are my favorite in the stihl line, they are generally big enough to handle anything you want and light enough that if you run it all day you arent dead tired. good balance and good power.
we just bought 2 460's for our fire dept, and they cut like a son of a bitch. very nice saws.
