Am looking for a small chainsaw to carry in the truck while on mowing route to cut branches or small trees after storm damage. Did buy a Stihl MS170 2 years ago. Loved the saw. But only ran three tanks of fuel thru it when a seal went out. Cost more to fix the saw than it did to buy it new. So...there is a Stihl and a Husqvarna dealer in the area. Wanting to know the pros and cons between the two brands before I purchase one. Am looking at a Husqvarna 142, but Stihl dealer says to pass that one up..not a good saw. I do have a Husqvarna 61, and that has been a WONDERFUL saw, but am wanting something smaller to carry in truck every day for those small jobs. We have Stihl backpack blowers and love them too, but after what happened to the Stihl MS170, am a little worried concerning Stihl. Anyone out there have opinions to offer?
