works pretty good wiith a 272 top end!

Putting that together must be a lot of work, as they belong to totally different saw families.  ???

You must not have a big enough hammer, anything can be made to fit with a proper sized hammer.  ;D

I am sure it can be done, if you put enough effort into it!  ;D

The weight and power made it an ideal firewood saw. A lot easier to carry in the woods and enough power to buck wood up fairly quickly. The power to weight has been hard to beat ever since.
I had one, wish I still did, but got fed up with it. Finicky damn things! Coils are weak and $75 each. Crank seal are starting to go on them now as well, due to age.
Mine pulled a 20" bar in Oak all day long, never had a problem with the power it had.
Remember, the answers you receive are worth exactly what you paid for them!

I just bought a Husqvarna 262. The price was to good to pass up. Once i get it and get it running, i'll compare it with a stock Stihl 036 pro and a Husqvarna 365sp.

If it doesn't beat both, something is wrong with it!

The 036 pro may surprise you Niko. It beat down a ms 361 and several 4 cube huskys and jreds at the last race i was in. ;)Its bone stock with muff mod.

A 262 could never beat a 365. Doesn't have the torque to pull it off.

No way a 262xp with muffler mod out cuts a stock 365 special with no mod to muffler, both running right. I have tested to know.

True words. I have tested, raced and logged with many 262 and 365 Huskys. Stock or modified the 365 wins.

Got my 262 in today. I need to change the fuel lines. It runs with a prime.
