stupid question


STIHL!!!!!!!

if you are just going to be doing light work, the 180 might be a good idea, $200, or if youre really feeling like a man go for the 441 25"bar.

Agree. Stupid question. Stihl is the only way to go. Get an 020T and a 46 and you will not look back. You will not need anything else.

Id recommend a STIHL 210 or 250. I have been running Stihls for years and years and have NEVER EVER had any mechanical problems. Stihl really is worth the $$.
