Husky is the best, no question, ask any tree company. I think people buy the husky junk from lowes and compare it with the commercial line of saws.

I have a dolmar 6400. 20inch bar and 64cc. I love this saw. I've used some stihls but they lack craziness of a dolmar. 64cc and 18,500 rpms makes for a sawdust flying good time. I want to pick up a 9010 or 90cc before they go out of stock. That will handle a 48inch bar. Also starts in no more than 2 pulls.

Commercial tree service use. this is what we have, all different size bars obviously we like stihl. got a great deal on the husky 395xp. it isn't allowed on a job site it stays with the firewood splitting guys so they can cut big logs its a bright orange paper weight in my opinion. the husky 250 was free so we have it.

Stihl

ms200t

So how did you get a dolmar to run to 18,500 rpm? is it a race saw?

That's what they run stock. The next size down is 19 something. Check the site, it should say on there what max rpm is.

Stock dolmar 64cc saw's run max no load 13,500 rpm per their website.
That's why I asked, even a highly modified saw will have a hard time getting
to 18,500 rpm. Not bashing the saw, wish it was true, cause I'd look into
buying one for sure.

The rancher is rated low cause its a homeowner saw. The pro saws (XP) are lighter and more powerful, this is why they cost more. They use metal crank cases, not plastic like the homeowner saws, etc etc. Im a fan of stuff that lasts, thats why I bought my 357xp. Its more than I need, but it will last forever and cut what ever I need. If it won't cut it, I make a phone call and let the tree companies handle it.

Here is mine
