Selecting by sum of attribute, then exporting new features.

Greetings all,

I have an interesting problem that I'm trying to solve. I have a polygon feature class where I populated an attribute column with a
weighted value for 2000 forest stands. I want to build a model to select stands until reaching a sum of the weighted value => 6. Then I want combine those features and export them as a new feature class. Once I have all the stands combined into larger plots, I want to recombine the plots back into a forest.

Any ideas?
Thanks, Kevin
