    which is the best top handle chain saw. i have all redmax products for my string trimmer, blower and hedge trimmer and they are great. I was wondering how there chainsaws are. I have 2 other chainsaws that are huskys, a 141 and 359, which are my dad's. I need a saw from climbing. I was wonder which one i should get. Thanks LawnInOrder

    Funny you should post about top handle chainsaws. I just used the Echo last week. I'm gonna buy one I liked it so much. I think it was the smaller cc model but, it was a real champ.

    so redmax is out. What is a comparable husky model since they are the cloest dealer. Thanks Doug

    I have had bad experiences with echo equipment, that is why i switched to redmax. I love my huksy but since the redmax equipment is good i was considering trying one of those saws. LawnInOrder

    Echo CS330T saws are awesome!

    Great power and lightweight.

    I have used all, redmax is ok, echo has no power, stihl or husky is the way to go. If I had to buy I would take the 334 husy, it is fairly cheap and is a great saw.

    Stihl ms200T or Husky 338xpc. The Echo is a good saw, but underpowered. Stay away from the Redmax climbing saw.
