I have a ported 026 PRO. It is a sweetheart to use
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

Checked my records from my logging days. Over 26,000 tanks of gas thru various 242/246 saws. Only weakness for me was roller on the throttle rod. It would wear and fall off. Always carried spares.

246G was my favorite of the lot.

I switched to the 242 family from the 254 family. Wood production went up. Not as tiring to use fo 9 hours in pulp.
