    Husky, Shindiawa, Stihl, Dolmar, Echo and so on all make some great saws. If you go to an Arborist forum you will read that all the lines have certain sizes that out perform the others. I really like my Husky but if you have a good dealer that carries the size that you need it doesn’t matter what brand it is. Plus if you want a really good saw spend the extra and get the PRO model.

    I have a Husky 55 Rancher that runs and cuts great.

    Both are really good saws. Just look at both and consider the features, prices, and dealer support.

    have a shindaiwa 300 S 14" about 14 yrs old. Still runs like a champ! I think you could probably not go wrong with husqvarna or the shindaiwa. Good Luck!!

    Husqvarna all the way.Very light and powerful saws. Dont waste your money on anything else. :) (you know its a Ford vs Chevy kind of thing) :waving:

    You really need to do some research before buying any manufacturers saw! I had to e-mail Husky twice before they would answer my question about who makes different models of their saws. They told me anything below the 350 is made in the Poulan plant.

    I have had two shindaiwa chainsaws. One was stolen and I still have the other. They are GREAT saws, very good fit and finish. I have several Stihl saws and I like them as well. The only drawback to the Shindaiwa line in my area of the country is a limited dealer network for support. The quality of the saw is as good as ANY of the others.
