    I have a T435 here

    Quite good saws but a rear handle is better for firewood

    I've used top handles, do their job but don't feel as nice and balanced in the cut as the normal saw designs. That Stihl model that came out with the chain brake activated by releasing the rear handle was weird as well.

    Miles and miles of tracks. Never missed a beat. Easily the best saw I have ever had.

    On the other hand it is a Stihl so it's probably going to be trying to start while it's lying in state...

    Ours has cut some big wood. Mods like that are beyond me. Skill set.

    If your only doing vertical cutting consider removing the dogs

    They only slow the cut as they hang up or force a bar angle change

    You still need a oil tank protector/slider, made an alloy one here

    You get another 2 inches of usable bar too

    Keep ‘em sharp so you can throw the axe away
