you only have 1 stihl 200t? i've had two since 2011, always good to have a spare, and the 440 is my only bigger saw, but eventually in the next few months i'll have ms660 and then i'll have two big saw's and two saws for limbing, then i'll have to work on two 361's or 362's for mid saws, I still need a harness for in the bucket, and scabbard for the bucket to put a saw in, but that's all very minor stuff.

Ive ran huskys before and they are just so complicated to use and the one I had only had one chain bolt and it would always fall off what is your experience with the durability of them?

chainsaw....complicated....those two words don't work in the same sentence. no chainsaw is complicated to run, its what you are used to. i guess stihls are more user friendly, but the 372xp i ran seemed just as easy to start vs. my 440.....same with my dads husky top handle and my sthil ms200t and my ms201t his saws seem to work just as well as mine, only exception is my dad has more saws then me, but my two top handles with 14" bars and my 440 with a 28" bar seem to work pretty well for now.

Complicated is not the best word to use I just like the simplicity of the stihls maybe I look to switch over to Husqvarnas now

Not much of a difference in chainsaws, some Huskys have an external clutch though.

I have a 441, 028 super, and a Husky 136 (use this one the most lol). I used to have a Stihl 460 also but traded up for the new 441.

For a perfect all around saw I would recommend the Stihl 361.

Been busy so haven't been on here in a few so here's some pictures from the last weeks work.
This was a gravel patio area we installed in an area that was existing poor health lawn that was damaged during hurricane sandy. Really wanted to put a border in at the driveway side but the customer did not want one.

gravel parking area we put in at a commercial building, area still needs to be top dressed with 3\4 stone. They want it expanded another 50' out into the field also so that will probably end up being in the next few weeks.
