    I gravitated toward Husky as I became familiar with a couple models at my job years ago. I set my sights on a 357 for my first and what I thought at the time would be my only "pro" saw...boy was I mistaken!..

    Anyway, I like the shape of the handle, the general handling characteristics, buckles instead of screws for quick easy filter/cyl cover removal on my 3-series Huskies which are my favorite. 2-series Huskies a very close second because YAHOO 242 and HOORAY 288! Nuff said ;)


    Edit to add: Honorable mention for Dolmar. I've run a 6400 a fair bit and a tank of fuel out of a red and black Makita 421. Terrific saws for the price point, very well made, and run the way you would expect any comparably sized pro saw to run. Just wish there was a better dealer network for them.. Dollies would certainly be my second brand and I would likely have one or two hiding in my pumpkin patch.

    My favorite saw is an angry one, that doesn’t suck, and I don’t care anymore what color or words are around it, it’s gotta run my chain like it owns it. I’ve got Stihl, Husky, Dolmar, Echo, Poulon, McCulloch, Partner and not a single one sucks !

    I lean towards echo based on my experience with their reliability and pricing. That being said, I look at model more than brand. My favorites are echo cs520, husky 372xp and stihl ms661.

    TROOF!!!!!!! I do prefer my Huskys but only because that is who I am a dealer for, so parts are readily available and there is a good flow of base material (blown up saws) for projects. When I was a Stihl dealer it was cream sickles for the same reason.

    I think I prefer to use the Husqvarna pro saws because they are smoother and cut very fast but I think I prefer to work on the Stihl saws, mainly because it's fairly easy for me to get parts for them.
