What chainsaws do you prefer and why?

“Husqvarna makes high-quality tools that
professionals can count on. My 450 Rancher has a ton of torque but not so much I have to hold on for dear life. Also, our local big box store carries Husqvarna. It helps being able to run in there and grab a new bar or chain and get back to the job site and not have to drive 20 miles out of the way to a dealer. The 450 Rancher is small enough for shrub and small tree removal and big enough for large trees. All of our small equipment is Husqvarna, and I don’t see that changing
anytime soon.”

“When it comes to everyday use, we choose Stihl chainsaws. We use an MS250 and MS170 regularly. We are purchasing an MS461 this fall for a bigger job recently sold. We know we can rely on them day in and day out, with less downtime than other brands. A productive worker is only as good as the equipment you supply him with. I’ve had my share of experiences with other brands and so far, none compare to Stihl.”
