Stihl Pro Chainsaw | MS 261 C-M | Long Term Review
I am doing a review on the Stihl MS 261 C-M Chainsaw. I have had this saw for almost three years. It has been used in many weather conditions and never let me down. We live off-grid and heat solely with wood heat, so cutting firewood is necessary. Along with trees falling in the road or on the property that I have to keep clean, it often gets used. These are expensive machines, but they are worth it to me for the peace of mind knowing that the saw will start and run when I need it.
We moved to this new off grid property to get into Modern Homesteading in January of 2016. We are living in rural Maine on 12 acres & have a small farm of chickens, raised bed & in ground garden. Sharing how we live off grid and use our Kubota L2501.
