  • what is your favorite chainsaw?

    just my chainsaw failed last week and look for a good alternative.

    I was gifted a couple of power saws, one gas, one electric.
    For local parts and service in this community with active logging and saw mills,
    I'd like to go STIHL.

      Had a Pullen and work fine for cutting trees/ carving.
      Living among knives and fire.

        Stihl is pretty much#1 for gas models. Husqvarna if you can get good parts and service locally.
        Have no experience with electric, but Stihl makes electric and get good reviews.

          Stihl, or Husqvarna, both are good saws . Choose the one that you can get service/parts for locally. I ran a repair shop for over 20 years and didn't see any problems with either make ( the problems usually originated with the operator not the machine... )
          If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

              ive had several saws ,including johnsred, but my favorite was my more recent stihl. high rpm and loads of power. this summer i needed an electric, battery style. local store has the husqvarna, and that one is a mighty fine saw ! electric wouldnt be first choice for cutting a whole season of firewood though but great for dismantling a large woodshed i needed to take down.

                I recently bought a good chainsaw for cutting them. I also thought for a long time which saw is better more powerful and easier 1 service helped me on which I compared these characteristics can you choose something for yourself

                  My 2 cents would be Echo. A lot of bang for the buck and best warranty.

                    I was sponsored by Stihl for chainsaw carving for a couple of years, and they loaned me saws which were pretty much bomb proof. You cannot go wrong with them

                    A couple of years ago, I got an Echo. I like it a lot. So far it is just as good as any Stihl I have used, and Echo has a better warranty.
