Yes, you do.  I have the Silky Gomboy (9") as well.  While it is a good saw, we typically get trees that fall that are 6-12" in diameter.  The Big boy is so much more efficient and fast in these situations.  I have no issues with a 12" tree falling cutting it out in 5 minutes or so with 2 people.  It takes care of 90% of the trees I come across throughout the year and the rest we leave for the chainsaws.  The gomboy is OK but I find its only efficient on anything 6" or less (saplings, limbing, small trees across trail).   I use the Big boy likely 90% of the time.  If you only ride with a hip pack, maybe you only want a 9" but if you ride with a backpack carrying a 1lb mini chainsaw is so much more worth it.
