Re: Which Stihl chainsaw?
I like the Stihl 044. Its a hoss. Repaired one for a friend and got to test it out for a few weeks Very impressed. I have an 032 that needs some carb work before going back in to service. Not too bad for the size.
My favorite saw is an old McCullouch Super 55A gear reduction. Made in 1958. Its 5.3 cubic inches(87cc) and weighs a ton. Uses a 1/2" chain with 36"bar. I sharpened the chain about ten years ago and only had to adjust once. It has a roller bearing at end of bar and isnt prone to wear so much. Its amazing to watch the chain going slowly with the 3:1 reduction, but rips thu any wood with out hesitation. Its doesnt produce saw dust, instead, wood chips.
