How bigs your.... chainsaw?

Let's hear it boys and girls, tell me about your favorite chainsaw.

Curious what brand, engine size, and bar size chainsaw everyone takes out on everyday jobs.

Please explain your use so we can put it into context and help each other understand individual needs...

Stihl 260pro with 18inch bar, and Stihl pole saw. If those 2 won't cut it call a tree company.

Big Polan pro junk,10 years ago we bought 5 and I swear if one ever dies it will be a husquvarna .
And 3 homelite limbing saws with 12" bars
They get used several days a week on our crews
We generally don't do large tree take downs though.
Fruit trees are normal and say up to a 14" diameter oak or other.
We do a lot of large tree thinning, everything bigger is took care of by my main tree crews which use stihl and husquvarna pole saws .
