    I've had two different Husqvarna's and if I ever have to I'll get another.

    What do you mean by "work on one"? Are you talking about removing the cylinder head or something? I can perform all basic repairs and maintenance on my Husky with just the one tool that is supplied.

    Bought a husqvarna last year, and needless to say it will be the last one I ever own. It stays in the shop for warranty work, and is in there again. Been there for 2months because they can't get the part shipped from the factory. I am going to be buying me another stihl this weekend, which is what I should have done last time. After this experience with husqvarna I would be hard pressed to ever buy any product they make. Guess my brother will be getting a free chainsaw when it gets out of the shop.:D

    Stihl or Husky and you cant go wrong.....I use a Husqvarna 455 rancher with 18 bar. Been using it for 3 years now and have cut just over 50 rick of wood with it.(I sell wood as a side income for winter months)
    Still starts on the second pull...cold or hot. Only thing I have replaced on it is that cheap priming bubble cause it dried out and cracked. Other than that, no problems whatsoever. Im sure stihl would serve you well also.

    Most of the time the one somebody else is using. But when I do have to use one I have a Stihl 025. Had it 10 years, other than replacing bar (my fault) no problems.

    I use a Husky 359 with a 20 in bar. Like said you can't go wrong with either a Husky or Stihl. What made my mind up was the $100+ difference between my 359 and a comparable Stihl saw. Stihl's prices are not competitive enough for me to choose them over Husky. JMO
