Re: Which Stihl chainsaw?
I used to have a Farm Boss (don't remember the model number). It got stolen.
Went the buy another one and was talked into an Echo 440. The reasoning was that it was a lighter saw with more cc's in the motor and therefore more cutting power.
I've had this saw for about five years now. Echo will be my go-to saw from now on. It's light, easy to handle and is not afraid of any size tree diameter. The Stihl was a little on the heavy side compared to the Echo.
