    I need to pick up a small chainsaw. The echo 3450 seems like a reasonably priced saw.

    http://alamia.com/products/ECH-CS3450-16.html

    Alamia has it for $259 (there are several on ebay new for under 200)

    Anybody have the experience ?

    I'm seriously thinking about getting a Poulan Pro 260 from Lowe's. I've talked to a couple people who have them and they really like it. For $158 with a case and a extra chain, it's definitely cheap enough. I know I'll play heck getting service if I buy it from Lowes. I have a big Stihl that I bought after my others got ripped off. I thought if I get a cheapy and carry it with me on the jobs and it gets ripped I won't be out of as much. I may still buy a small Stihl just so I won't have 2 different brands.

    Echo is a very good small saw. Look into a husky too (big or small)
