 I need a new 14 or 16 chain saw

What brand would you recommend?
Looking for something economical reliable light weight and easy to handle.
Don't have to be top of the line but don't want junk either.
Thanks for the info.

 I need a new 14 or 16 chain saw

I received a Husqvarna 136 consumer model saw for Christmas about five years ago. This thing just won't die. We've cut, limbed and bucked hundreds of trees with this saw and I'm amazed that a cheap consumer grade saw would give this good of service. These things are cheap to buy too, maybe $125-135. It still runs like new, all I've done is replace plugs, chains and the bar a couple of times.

I have a Husky 52, but I am not sure which model replaced it. I have had it 12 years. Starts every time. At one time they called it the 455 Rancher.
If you want a saw to power a 16" bar you need more power I recommend that you buy a saw where the bar size is in the heart of the range. I do not recommend that you underpower a chain a 2 cycle needs to reve, if you lug you can get problems with burning pistons.

I'm with the other guys on this one; "Husky"is the small chain saw of choice for low weight and cost. For larger I stay with my Stihl. Costs more, but worth it.

I've got a STHIL and I give it a 100% recommendation. Works well in winter or summer and after 7 years of cutting maple, still (pun intended) hasn't been in the shop. Get a bigger model than you think you'll need, it'll work easier and faster.

I have an Echo 16, its very light weight, great engine, and a pleasure to use compared to my old stuff. I think it was not so cheap if I remember right. My only complaint is that I seem to be always having a chain fly off the bar near then end of my work. If I had to do it again I might look for one of those dial-chain tightener models.

You're right about the chain tensioner. On the Husky the chain gets adjusted probably every other refueling. The next one I buy will be a Stihl with the tooless chain tensioner, but that's hard to justify until the Husky dies. Does Husky have that option? Either way you can't go wrong with Husky or Stihl.

Stihl MS290 Farm Boss. Best bang for the buck Stihl makes and is their most popular chainsaw. I have owned my Stihl O-66 (now called the MS669) for almost 14 years and she runs like new. I have cut a LOT of wood with it too. Stihl is expensive but worth EVERY penny in my opinion because they are VERY reliable and they last.

I've had a Husky 136 for about 4 years. I bought it as a limb & trim saw; but my other saw is so heavy, and the Husky works so good, that I use it for most of my firewood cutting. No problems other than a bent bar, and that wasn't the saw's fault.

Good luck,
Bill
