What Chainsaw do you run?

Alright everybody. I want to see what kind of chainsaw everybody uses. Whether its for your job, home use...etc. What mods are you running, like porting or anything. Let's see 'em.

I have an Echo CS 370. I would post a pic, but I'm at school in another city right now. I opened up the muffler on it and did some carb work. Runs pretty good.

For all the firewood and hedge row trimming I do for people, I use a husqvarna XD or any stihl works as well. The husqvarna XD is great, any other husqvarna line is junk.

Homelite Super 2 with 14 and 16 inch bars that I inherited from my old man. Had to rebuild the carb after I got it and now it runs a little better but can still be pretty cranky sometimes. Pretty sure he bought it new in the late 70's or early 80's. Really just used for cutting up firewood.

I like my little Echo with a 16" bar. Cuts the little trees up fine. Sharp chain is paramount with all chainsaws. When I was cutting lagging boards when I was piledriving decades ago, we used Stihl saws with a 36" bar. Those where animals.

Husqvarna and Shindawa-both 20 inch blades--sharp chain is PARAMOUNT.
Use REAL GASOLINE when mixing fuel--ethanol is BAD for two strokes.
I used to use my dads Homlite XL--it was 40 years old and time for its life to end-they were made of METAL back then.
home use--about 5 cords yearly for home and family.

my Echo kicks ass. i think it is a CS340?

we have an annual tree clearing party. my echo, by far is the easiest to get started and warm up. my buds' husky and stihls seem more finicky. dunno. i am pretty anal, and keep plugs and stuff clean.

i have a 16" bar and i run Stihl chains. keep the chains sharp and most saws perform the same. mine is light for sure.

if i had to note a "con". i think both Stihls and Husky have better bar oiling systems. neater. less stuff drips out the bottom of them. mine can get messy.

i just do yard work with mine..and cut firewood at deer camp usually. i dont need a high $$ saw. IIRC an echo is half the cost of a stihl.
