    I own a Tree Service in South Jerseyand I have used just about every climbing saw on the market. The truth of the matter is which saw to buy really depends on your budget and application. If you are going to be cutting trees everyday and those trees are of the LARGER variety than your best bet is the model 200T, but be prepared for the "Sticker Shock" ($600+). If you are restrained by budget and don't plan on cutting tree's everyday or they are smaller trees than either of the Husky models should handle the job for you.

    Agreed on the suggestion that you buy based on projected use. If a lot the top line Stihl or Husqy, 201 reservations aside as that's what is available so you take or leave it. If part time use, I recommend the Redmax top handle, it's a ood little unit. Maruyama top handles are face lifted Echo saws, which are good saws too.
