best new style top handle climbing saw under $350.00

Hello I'm looking at different saws for light to medium duty use a few times a yr Id guess 10-20 hrs a yr. light weight is a priority for me.I used a Stihl ms 170 before and liked it a lot. but I do not want anything weaker. It is 30cc I believe. I'm currently looking at Stihl ms 192t , Husqvarna 335xpt , and Echo cs 303t. which is the best bang for the buck, lightest, maintenance free durable saw of these. Im open to other suggestions that I'm missing. the only dealers near me are Echo Husky Stihl.

Echo

Just purchased a Echo 271T top handle chainsaw. Paid $299 and it is very lightweight and also powerful.

Try to find a good used 200T in your area, it will outlast anything else given a reasonable amount of care.
