Chain Saw

What are you using it for? Cordwood or limbing? Use it daily or will it sit on the shelf for months at a time?

My saw, it doesnt get much use but when I do need it it fires right up and gets the job done-Husky 41 a good all-purpose saw but its kinda small for cutting large quantities of firewood. Stihl, IMO, makes the best saw. My next one will be a stihl 028 or whatever equivalent is around when the time comes.

If you are using a saw for limbing get one with a top handle so you can use it one-handed.

Lawman, I suggest you look at stihl . I have used them for almost 20 years cutting timber. Stihl saws will run the same when it`s 100 degrees in the shade or -10 below .i dont know what you will be using a saw for but I can get 2 years out of a 066 that`s roughly 3 million feet of timber or 850 tractor trailer loads of logs.most guys that used to run husky saws that I know of now run stihls .good luck with your choice.

If you decide to look at lowes
be careful.Ithink they might be purposely
misleading. look closely at the specs.
If you want your best chance at a
trouble free saw STIHL AND HUSKYS

NOT!!!!!!!!!!!! One handed chain saw use is never recommened by the manufacturer. Look up the ANSI Z-133 Safety Requirements for Pruning, Trimming, Repairing, Maintaning, and Removing Trees, and Cutting Brush. These are the standards that OSHA will use against you.
