Best saw for firewood?
« on: September 10, 2014, 08:20:48 pm »
Hey guys, we are in our second year of firewood business. we currently run 2 Jonsered CS 2255 and have been pretty satisfied with them. I am now in need of a larger saw for some bigger timber we are getting into. Looking at the Jonsered CS2172 70cc, is it worth the price tag of $800.00? or are their better options for a large saw of the same approx. size. Thanks Jason

The CS2172 is a very good choice for a 24"  - 71cc chainsaw

Check out the 2166 too. Same cc just detuned with divider in transfer port. Can be removed if you want later.

The 2172 and the 2166 are the same saw except for the transfer covers on the side of the cylinder.

Grinding the restrictors in the transfer covers makes the 2166 a 2172. I have the Husqvarna version and I like it for larger firewood  especially when noodling.

I've done the conversion of a 365XT to a 372XT, easy peasy. Your Dremel and a tamper proof T-20 Torx driver is all you need to do it, takes an hour or two. IMO the XT saws make a little more torque than the XP version.
