Just curious on everyone's opinions on chain saws. I have a buch of oldies that I use on occasion, like Mcculloch, Johndeere, Stihl, Homelite, Lombard.

They are all nice but my favorite is my Echo cs440 that I bought a few years ago, that thing is the best saw I have ever used! :smile1: No problems yet since I had it (knock on wood) LOL


What are your favorite brands of saws?

I Don't currently own a saw but I'll be gettin one soon as I just got a wood burner. I always help a buddy of mine cut wood and I use his Husqvarna and thats what I'll be gettin, I've used em all and like the Husqvarna the best.

I have a cheap Poulan. I know a bunch of people talk smack about this brand, but mine has run perfect since day one. I has been cutting along side of Stihls and Huskys with no complaints. I have had it for about 10 years now and never a problem. I can't say the same about my dad's Stihl.
I have always wanted an Echo, if my Poulan ever dies, I think that is what I'll get...?

I have a cheap Craftsman (believe made by Poulan) and a mid grade Husqvarna. The Husky is constantly giving little problems, but that little Craftsman just runs, runs, then runs some more with No problems ever. Something wrong in carb or fuel lines of the Husq. but I haven't bothered with fixing. The Craftsman is always up to the job & saws like a mad dog!

I don't own one, never cut any wood, and never had a fire in my fireplace in almost 15 years.In fact my 36 inch flat screen TV fits just inside the fireplace opening. I guess I'm not a heat/fire kind of guy, I got married this past year and this is the first winter that I've run any heat in the house at all. The walls are block with a brick veeneer, about 14 inches think, along with storm windows, good doors and lots of windows on the south west side it rarely gets below 32 inside, maybe 2 a year. Of course this year we've been running the zoned baseboard heat, plus my wife has several electric blanket stations positioned around the house, so I've been pretty dang warm in more ways than one
