    This is a argument that will never be resolved, Stihl and Husq are the top saws on the planet. I use Stihl.

    I have both brands of saw! I have a Stihl 260 Pro and a Husky 576XP. Like both. Neither one is the "best!" Which one should I buy? The one with the best local support/dealer!

    I have a stihl 260 pro and its a great all around saw. The Husky 346xp is great as well and I had a hard time choosing between the two.

    Stihl 260 pro, just big enough to do the job and small enough not to wear you out.

    Bought the MS261 pro. I to had a hard time deciding between the two brands. Stihl dealer is just 2 miles down the road.

    Stihl is the best chainsaw ever created, I have a stihl chainsaw with a 24" bar and it rocks.
