    Thanks to all who helped me in my previous post. I have narrowed it down to a few saws.

    Husky 575 XP and 385 XP.

    Stihl MS 440 and ms 441

    Jonsered CS 2186

    I have used jonsered before and I have a stihl now.

    Has anyone ever used these models before? Pros/cons of each?

    I am thinking husky and jonsered might be lil cheaper then the stihls, am I correct?

    I think Jonsered is actually more expensive than stihl.

    Take your pick. Stihl, Husky and Jonsered all make good saws.

    Husky And Jonsered Are The Same Company But I Have Ran The 575 Xp And It Is An Awesome Saw Best Saw For Its Size In My Opinion

    while husq cant make a mower to save thier lives thier saws are really good.

    In fact I use some of thier 2 strokes still for handhelds but i am replacing with stihl. I really dont think you will be disapointed in any of them. Try em out and see if possible and dont forget to look at the dealer who is going to give you good service after the sale.

    Stay away from echo saws... mine works now that i took out the arrestor but its no where near the saw of our stihls or husqs.

    I actually picked up a ms180C miniboss stihl saw for some lioght trimming. Decided to just throw stump rotter in the few hard stumps and save some money. Decided it wasnt worth the 500 bucks or so for 3-5 stumps and hardly use the saw after that. This was some good thinking though!
