Ok, I have a confession. Most of our equipment is higher quality, commercial type stuff, with one exception...our chain saws. I had a Stihl 020 Super 10 years ago, but it was a lemon. Paid big bucks for it and put big bucks in it It never panned out and I bought a (gasp) Poulan. Not a Pro, just a regular old $100 Poulan. Then we bought a second one just like it. Believe it or not, that did their job, but they are starting to show their age. They leak, they are not terribly powerful and they are a little embarrassing to use So I have come to the conclusion, maybe it's time for a little better saw. Here's the problem, we don't do a hell of a lot of tree work or anything, but I am a power junky. I do not need a saw that can rip through a fallen oak tree in 8 seconds, but I find myself wanting one Here is what I am looking at right now: 1)Husqvarna 55R, probably a good mid-range choice. 2) Shindaiwa 488, for obvious reasons this seems like a decent choice. I like Shindaiwa equipment and it has been relatively trouble free for me so far. 3) Stihl MS260. I have a pretty good Stihl dealer, he has let me down a few times, but he is better than most. Downside, the 020 Super came from him and it was a POS 4) This is where the power hungry thing kicks in, a Husqvarna 346XP. This saw is supposed to be bada$$, but way more than what I need. What saws do you use in day to day work and why do you think they are a good choice? Any input would be appreciated.
