Thanks. Yes, we have a great group here, and luckily, not too many trolls flaming for the sake of throwing insults around. We are here to help and share what we have learned.Excellent thread. The best info I have read on chainsaws here. Do not stop, gentlemen. Please respond to specific problems in the forum.
I love talking Chainsaws as apart from my mower work, I use my saw the most because of my heavily wooded lots that are now in the midst of old aging trees that need constant trimming if not felling. With the two Titans Stihl and Husqvarna tipping the heavyweight championship both ways, it's a very interesting debate. Truly, I really do wonder what would have happened if Homelite had been managed differently and they had remained true to their original vision of amazing, reliable and stellar trimmers and saws and had avoided being sold and gutted. I suspect they would be another titan today. Alas, it is not to be. At least we have two great saws to choose from for the homeowner. Some would argue that there are more than two and that's fine. If the saw runs great for you and does the job, that's what's important. I CAN remember when McCulloch was considered a Titan in the Chainsaw world. They still may be to some.
