So whats the big difference between the husky 257 and the 262?  The bore only?   or is it like the 261 with a few more differences like dished piston and clutch etc?   

257 open port ?

They also have different anti-vibe (spring vs. rubber) and different intake/filtration setups. Also different clutches if I remember correctly.

Looks like a nice example if you are collecting the series. Agree a little pricey, but sometimes if ya wanna play, ya gotta pay lol.

I think there are 4 saws in the series; 254XP, 257, 261, and 262XP. I think of the 254 as the fast limbing saw, the 257 as the "farm saw", the 261 as the "262 wanna-be", and the 262 as the top firewood saw (of it's day).

Some of the parts are interchangeable on these series.  And some are not.  So you really have to be carefull if your robbing parts off one to another.

I had a super nice 254xp I sent up to NS after comparing it to my PP325. Threads on them both here.
