Buying my first chainsaw. Just bought a wood burning stove and have 80+ acres to cut wood so why not. Chainsaw's. I know enough to fill a thimble. Where I am at now. Two local dealers. Both I trust equally. My budget is $300.00. Husqvarna 445E or Echo CS400. I am using it for firewood only. Cant seem to pull trigger on either one so any advice as always is appreciated. Might add. I have always bought echo blowers, trimmers and the like with complete satisfaction. Chainsaws are out of my area of any experience. Yes there is a local Stihl dealer but I have no experience with them. Stihl is NOT out of the question.
