    New saw time - I do not need the Stihl 661 so for Stihl my choice is between the 441 CM? or 461. Electronics vs a more conservative configuration.

    I am not totally brand loyal so if Husky or Makita (dolmar with a different colour) or any other make a saw that is reliable, rugged easy to service I will consider suggestions.

    Is your intended purchase for Typhoon clean up work or more regular work?
    Ask a tool hire place to see if there are any electric chainsaws to hire to try out if they right for you before you purchase one.

    Does anyone have a repair manual for a Stihl 044 that I could download? I can’t seem to find one on the net. Thanks!

    I have a book that pretty well covers all brands, what info are you needing? I can see what's in there for that model.

    Stihl is very protective of their copyrighted information. Someone that posts manuals will be asked to remove them.

    Here is a link to another website with a link to the 044 service manual ------> Apparently you have to copy and paste the link into your web title bar.
