How makes the best all around, general purpose, cleanup and some small-medium sized takedowns chainsaw. I want one that isn't too much, but a good all around saw. How makes it and what model is it? ? Thanks

Not too worried about price. I want something that isn't going to bog down too much and get the job done, yet I don't want or need a $800 saw. Just pruning, cutting down little stuff, slicing up some logs and the like. What size bar should I be looking for? 18?

Husqvarna 345 with an 18 inch bar can be had in the $300 range. Very nice unit.
