Default Husqvarna vs Stihl vs ?

So, bought my house, and am clearing some trees that are in the way. Kaiserjeep came over and dropped them with his ol'trusty homelite, but now I have a huge mess.

I'm looking at a Husqvarna 450 series saw. Not using wood to heat, but with the amount of trees on the property, I'm anticipating clean up with storms/winds that we get here on the west side near the lake. What do the people of GL4x4 us for their wood clearing needs?

I have a Huskey with a 20 inch bar on it for bigger stuff. Works really well for being 15+ years old. I have an Echo T-330 with a 14 inch bar on it for smaller stuff. This is a trimming saw, with the handle on top. Works great, and you can use it one handed. For limbs and stuff, I have my Toro weed whip with the interchangeable heads, and I bought the chain saw attachment. It can have up to a twelve foot reach. I love it, and have used it to cut stuff up to ten inches in diameter because you don't have to bend to cut.

watch ax men and look at all the orange and white they use. best power to weight ratio, extreme reliability STIHL is the way to go. My dad has had a STIHL for 25yrs, used wood to heat the house for 20 of those years and it finally reached the repair or replace point in its life.

When are you going to stop beating around the bush and just come out and say how you really feel?
