I cut a fair number of trees from my 80 acres, some huge, but many smaller. My Stihl MS261 is a champ for felling trees.

For limbing trees, I use a Stihl MS150. It's a tiny little thing, but it has a tiny kerf so it cuts well above its weight class. Since it weighs less than half what the MS291 weighs, it's easy on my back. The MS150 is expensive to buy and the chains don't last long so it's expensive to operate. But the cost is nothing compared to back surgery.

I would recommend either of my saws to just about anyone who would needs a durable, reliable saw for regular use. The only suggestion I would make is to remove the spark arrestors.
