Here is how they run here. These are not set to factory specs, they are set where they work best. 260 at factory specs would be down the list further. When I get time on the 261 it should be at the top.

026 German
260 German
346 OE
5000 Redmax
5100
152
5000P
246

Forgot about adding the Partner 5000 and Dolmar 5100 to the list of stock saws.  Just curious.

Other than the 246, there would only be a second between the saws. I prefer high rpm over torque.
I don't block firewood with 50cc saws.

I can understand rpm and  what you were after by running that EHP redmax 5000 from you.

Had to be a good limbing and what ever you call pulp saw? Can you describe that so I know, pulp saw? guessing 6" 8" tree and a lot of falling and limbing.

Pulp saw is light and fast. I cut random length 10-16 feet. Take them down to a 2" top. Small logs go down to 3" top. Will take the camera in and get pics and video when it warms up. Hard to explain unless you know what is left for timber here.

Around these parts pulp wood is soft wood, mainly poplar and spruce, that ends up getting cut in order to skid the $$ wood out.   Its the easy grabs for a few extra dollars.
Just for fun (and a good deal at baileys 15" Carleton Sprocket Nose for $3.90!) I ran it on my 372 with an 8 pin rim...............a very nice set up for pulp wood at the landing.............

All of our local big mills have shut down (within 270km) so pulp in down to $11/ton and logs (thankfully there are some small mills still operating) $27-42 dependant upon the mill.  So very rough times for those that can't adapt.  I think the biggest and most profitable option in to outlast the unemplyed cutting a few loads of firewood till he finds his next job, and be the one that always has wood available, goind rate for a single here in town delivered and split is $60.........and hours away in Ottawa $150-200!

Man I thought it was bad here. 3 years ago we were $95/ton on logs. We have 1 mill left, 280 km away.
