Answer is three. Having multiple saws i face the "dilemma" of which to take and use. The 261 is my "go to" saw for average cutting, but decided to take the 170 and 460 as well even though the 261 wouldve done fine by itself. Actually this is a follow up from my Storm blow over red maple score. thread as i never went back to cut it. He contacted me recently about it. Nice and overgrown since January, but shaded and it was cooler and drier today than what it has been so i felt like cutting. 170 did the limbing and smalls, 261 handled medium and 460 made short work of felling and bucking the spar. 18" DBH January pics. Snow looks refreshing! Todays work Ill split on sight and move to stacks.
