John Deere Chain Saws

hey guys..im bored so i figured i would post this

Im 16, and i worked with my Uncle and Cousin all summer doing Tree Work(tree care and Cutting down trees, BRUTAL WORK!!!, haha), and he has all Husquavarna Saws, and his neibhor does the same kind of work and has all Stihl saws. What about John Deere, i know JD is known for their reliable Lawn Mowers, but what about their saws and weedwackers, i have never acutally seen People with John Deere Saws or Weedwackers before in person.

just wondering, thanks, lol

I think they're using Kawasaki equipment, now. They used Echo equipment exclusively for a LONG time.

No professional will use a John Deere saw. Maybe a landscaper might... but not a self respecting arborist.

I do not know who Deere is getting to make their two-cycle equipment, but I have always been warned to stay away from it. Husky and Stihl would be my saw of choice. I run a JD 727 Z and love it, but I will stay with Stihl for my 2-Cycle equipment.
