I've had very good luck with Stihl products over the last 27 years, and about hald of my stuff today is Stihl, but I like my newer husky 570 BTS far more than my BR600M, and my Husky 223L is a darn good little trimmer.
For chainsaws, forget about either of the above brands. I will only run Jonsereds. I know that Husky owns Jonsered (now), and the engines are the same, and so are many other minor features, but most of those same features came out on Jonsereds long before they did on either Husky or Stihl, and a Jonsered will out cut a Stihl every time size for size all else being equal. The ergonomics of the Jonsered is what I like the most though.
