what is gonna cut faster on a stihl ms 261 .325 or 3/8 chain w 16 or 18 in bar

The only way for you to cut faster is to get a bigger saw. That's how I ended up having 4 Stihls. Well 3, I can't let my daughter know I call the little saw mine when I bought it for her, lol. a 16 inch bar will be very slightly faster than an 18 cause of the shorter chain being lighter but you won't notice it in cutting speed. sharpness is a factor too, a good sharp chain will cut faster.

If you come back and read this I can give you plenty of advice. I'm a woodcutter, I cut and sell firewood. I been running chainsaws 7-8 months a year for the past 5 years. I learned from my cousin who's been running saws 11 years.
