>Walter,

There are two 260's, "pro" and straight. The 260Pro has only .25 less HP than the 290, but it also weighs 2 POUNDS less. I would think your dealer would give you the same warranty as a non-pro saw since he knows you're not a logger. I've cut with a 260Pro with a 20" bar in Oak and Ash. Saw did very well with very nice balance. If my 15y/o 023 ever dies, that's the saw I'll replace it with although probably with an 18" bar since I have the Husky 28" for the bigger wood.
