    Stihl 026 is what I have. A climbing saw may be next.

    i have a husq 55 rancher, and crapsman 20"incher, but the tree guy i work for has three little echo climber chainsaws, one is the arborist version (i guess thats what it is, shorter chord pull and belt attachment) and he also has like a sthill 310(?) big saw, like the husq 55. oh, by the way, any one know a good deal where to get the husq arborist chainsaws? he says they're like 400 a pop, but damn, the echo's work good enough...

    Chainsaws don't have blades.


    Let's see...

    Echo 3400 for climbing
    Husky 136
    Husky 55
    Husky 372XP
    Husky 394XP
    Husky 3120XP

    Not sure if it counts, but I got the 340cc Sachs twin powered beast we play around with on weekends, too. ;)
