I am with Odin! Stihl makes a great saw. Depends on what kind of service you plan on putting it though. If you want a one handed saw, or two. I small pruner, like an 009 would make a nice one handed pruner, but I think 14" bar is max.
If you want a little bigger saw, the 029 Farmboss is supposed bo make a good saw. When you see numbers ending in even, like 028, 026, they are the professional saws. Better quality, but more money. The odd are more for the average joe, but I would not call them homeowner, like the 029, or 017.
A real super saw would be an 026, will run that bar great, and last forever. I think you would probably be very satisfied with the 029, I think they can be had for around 300 bucks.
:blob3:3- STIHL 029 w/ 20" bar has served me well, got me through a tornado we had on memorial day weekend. T
If you want a good trim saw and a saw that will cut thick stuff, I would recommend a Stihl o18. I have tried other brands but Stihl is #1. (sorry husky and echo) I think an 029 or an 026 would be a little much for what you do and want. I have an o17 and a 029. They are not the commercial grade stihls but i have put many hours on both.
Stihl is great, but I vote for Husky. I've had a 51 Husky for years and it's been bombproof.
I like stihls and echos I was given a 026 pro (almost new) from my wifes dad. I dont have much use for it, my echo is plenty. my local shop sells the 026 pro for $449
Get a Stihl. An 026 or 029 are good medium size saws. I have an 026 and an 039 and love both of them!
another vote for stihl
