    If you expect to keep it for a while, go to a Stihl dealer. You shouldn't have any problems getting parts or service work.

    Get a Stihl saw I have a model 034 That I have had for several years and it is very dependable. It starts in the coldest weather we have in south Arkansas. If it get's hard to start, it is mostly a spark plug or a clogged air cleaner.

    Stihl and Huskavrna are the kings of the mountain, in my book. Poulan running second.

    Stihl would be my pick, all the guys I know who log for a living either run Stihl or Huskavarnas.

    I have two 20" Husqavarna's that I use a lot on my farm and most loggers in this area use the Huskies because they turn higher rpm's then most other saws.

    I would agree with this post. These saws are the work force standards. Parts are readily available and if taken care of ( maintenance) will last many years.

    I run a Stihl farmboss ms 310. It's a great saw, and I use an 18" bar and chain...although it probably wouldn't have been a bad idea if I'd have gotten twenty inchers.... hope this helps. Oh, and what are you going to use the chainsaw for? That would help determine the specifics of what you want/need. Good luck findin' the right one.

    6 years ago I was using a Montgomery Ward electric chainsaw, that alone should tell you just hold this relic was. The chain broke and slid across my pinky and ring finger, slicing open the big knuckle on the pinky finger and literally pulled out the nerves and tendons. The emergency doc did everything he could but recommended that I go see a specialist. I did, and he was able to put most of the stuff back where it belonged. I still have use of those fingers, but Ill never play air guitar the same.:crazy:
    I currently have a Craftsman 26", but its just a doorstop cause it has no brake on it.

    Thanks everyone for the information. I did buy a Husqvarna 142 and have used it to cut up two ricks of wood.
