Husky imo is the best although I run a Stihl now. I miss my Husky every time I have to cut wood.

esshup,Sorry Im late repling,but been having alot of trouble loging on.I think echo is the most dependable saw out there,just my .02 cents worth.And my distributer has the BEST support of anybody I deal with,hands down.One of my sales reps did a survey a couple years age about who had the best service/best order fill rate and they got almost every dealers vote in my area.PM sent.

Sorry I guess I am old school but I love my STIHL 025 it only has a 16 inch blade and was my dads for 15 years and I have had it for 6 and it can cut with the best of them still. For the all around great saw and not to steep of price the STIHL is the way to go IMO. I cut 4 cords with mine last year and it barely broke a sweat!!! And I cut about 4 cords a year myself. I don't normally cut anything any bigger then 12 inch in diameter, but it still does the job and I believe I could go bigger if need be. If you had a 24 inch STIHL you would have a saw that if taken care of should last you for 20 plus years!

If you're old school then you can tell me the specs on the yellow one! ;\)



Believe it or not, both saws have a 24" bar on them.

esshup,
I had a 707D Homelite similar in size to that one. Weighed prob 30lb. When you set it down on a log you didn't have to worry about kick backs. Talk about loud!

Probably a 1950s vintage McCulloch. Probably about 3.5 hp at 3500 rpm. Great mosquito chaser at a pint of two cycle oil per gallon. Probably around 25 to 30 lbs. They don't make 'em like that anymore -- thankfully!

I have a slightly newer McCulloch in my garage right now. ; )

My Stihl is great, tons of power, think it is a 290... larger engine then that line normally has here in Canada apparently. Not listed for sale here but for the US market as I guess the environmental specs vary, just happened to get shipped accidentally to the local dealer and he unloaded it to me for a good price.

I used to love my Poulin's, have two that have been through the ringer and still run great. Just not built like they used to be anymore since the company got bought out.

Yep, my vote is for a Stihl. Just as mentioned by others don't get one of the physically larger/heavier 'home' use units as I don't think you'd be satisfied.
