Stihl for sure, Husky close second, Echo #3. My Husky starts easy even after sitting for a year or two, with gas in it.

When I was shopping I only looked at Stihl and Husky. After handling them both I quickly decided on Stihl. I dont know why but I just liked the feel of their saws better.

I like husky's personally. Tons of torque, hard to bog down.
Stihl does make a great saw. High revving, reliable
The Stihls do feel lighter.
Chevy..Ford...
Id say you made a nice choice----Gate

I have ran all three and I concour with Mark F.

Huskys are great long lasting saws as well as Stihls. I went with the echo because it was the right size and right price. Saws are like cars take care of them and they will last forever.

The one brand I will never ever buy is a Polan/ McCulloch. My dad bought one for light duty stuff around the house. After the first time we ran it it has never ran again ever. Tried taking it back but they wouldn't take it.

I have an older Echo 550EVL. It used to be a badass, but its getting kinda tired now.

I definately agree Stihl makes the best saws available.

As for Husquvarna, my mother in law has a 14" baby husky and after using it once, I damn near made it dissapear. Its pretty tough.
