    I've been running a MS261C for a couple of weeks cutting mostly very large Ligustrums. It's handy, and adequate... but the hard Ligustrum wood is slow-cutting. I've got a Husqvarna 460 that would eat the wood faster, but I don't feel like hefting all of that weight on a job as big/long as this.

    Since till now I've used Husqvarnas, the big improvement with the Stihl besides the lighter weight is that my damn big thumb on my damn big hand doesn't flip the switch off for no reason but to cause me aggravation.

    Well shit. The rear bar stud screws into the engine crank case, which I knew, but this bastard is stuck hard. Actually put a dent in my vice jaws trying to get it out. Ordered a pair of channellock 410 which claim to grip round better than new vice grips(which also didnít work). So far, Iím into my free saw for about $100.

    I thought about welding a nut on the stud, but that will be a last resort. I got the channellocks in last night and I can say these things grip even fully rounded material. I've been putting some penetrating oil on it for the last couple days, I'll see if I can get it out tonight. I've also read that they put locktite on the studs, so may apply some heat as well.

    Did you try using two bar nuts locked together on the stud and a large wrench? Seems like that how I have replaced chainsaw studs before.

    I did, they just stripped out the threads on the stud.

    I was able to use the parrot jaw channellocks to back out the stud. Going to chase the threads with a tap once I get the rest of it taken apart. It still took some effort to get it out.

    Jo-Jo told me that you can also cut off all of that pesky alyewminium with a hacksaw thus freeing the stud. He called me, he said, from Ukraine, just to tell me that, but I really think he is in Russia,
