Husqvarna vs Stihl?

Here goes with opening a can of worms its probably on here already but I put it in search and couldnt see it. A bloke at my local dealer said most arborists have Stihl saws and Husqvarna PPE and tools, what do you lot think? Which is better in terms of ground saws? Ive used modern stihl saws but only ancient husky saws so I cant input, but husqvarna do a better job of convincing me in terms of the website and brochures IMO. Opinions?



p.s I realise I will probably regret starting this thread!!

Re: Husqvarna vs Stihl?

i will say husky but we have a stihl to and it get a bused by the keeper its hanging to gether electrial ties


i would say what ever deeler is beater, i one of the most important factor i find,
we have a stihl dealer 1 mile down the road but he carries no parts exctra so i do not tuch him with a barge pole. we use a husky dealer a he is very good but he does not have many saws in stock but his back up makes up for it. some guys have travel 4 hours to him.

so it the dealer for me
