Husky 357xp 18" bar mostly storm clean up and fire wood when camping. Only use Sthil and Carlton non safety chains (yellow link) in full chisel and semi chisel. More importantly, Labonville full wrap chaps.

Realized I never said what I have myself...

Recently got a Stihl MS211C 16"

Will use mostly for storm cleanup, some pruning and smaller tree felling - will leave the big work for the tree guys though.

my dad has a Husqvarna I borrow when needed. I try to avoid tree work of any kind if at all possible. I hate it with a passion.

of course everyone wants me to pick up all their limbs and crap since the tree companies charge too much money.

I hate shrubs, bushes, and trees. all they do is create an obstacle you have to mow around and they drop crap on yards like limbs, pinecones, sweetgum balls, nuts, etc. etc. etc.....and they also fall down on top of people's houses during storms or tornados.

in my opnion a yard shouldn't have a single tree in it. the trees will be fine out there in the woods behind the yard. no need to have them in your yard to make a mess.

Are you guys using top handles or rear handles most of the time? Since I wasn't climbing, rear seemed the best for me...

MS270c - I use it on my 10 acres and occasionally elsewhere. This saw is not used daily by me but I have great confidence in it that it would hold its own in the field.
