Absolutely stick with one of the 'pro' models if you can afford it. If not then a MS280 would be a good choice. For an 18-inch bar you would want around a 60-cc motor. The MS290 is Stihl's best selling saw, but it is also the least expensive 50-cc saw they sell which is why. You pay for that low cost with the worst power to weight ratio in their line.
