Yep, my husky was originally bought new to clear land in New England. Dropped many a red oak, hemlock, and pine. I've left it up there both in expectation of future land again and because nothing down here had really rated bringing it down.
My stihls are just a very overworked and highly abused limb saw I got new and did things it shouldn't have been asked to, and, a basket case 291 that probably ought be retired but I can usually get it running and working, even if things like the chain brake no longer work and it tries to stall if you don't give it at least some throttle (doesn't like idle anymore either)... but, I bought the 291 used, cheap, so it owes me nothing.
So..... not really looking to slot it between anything, I'm treating it like a new start. Too bad joesregalproject is so far away, I could have just kidnapped one of his orphans out of the shed and been done with it.
Defnitely not anything smaller than a 300 range for a Stihl saw. Tree that big you want to run a 25" bar to make the cut easier. See what you can find forsale in your local area, I've been seeing them all over here lately. 250/251 you'll be making more slow cuts than needed. If you have a whole day or two then you're fine but that is a small saw for a tree that big.
MS391 or a MS362 if you want the Pro Saw, either with a 25" bar. That would be my choice.
The one in my post above was a 20" oak tree that was well alive, my MS461 with a 25" bar murdered that thing. My MS362 with a 20" bar I used on a tree in my yard a few weeks ago, 18" tree that was a nice live oak that had to come down. Small saws are not for big work.
