More powerful Chainsaw-Help

Recommended Posts

i am currently running with an MS171 and whilst it take dogs abuse it a bit low and is only domestic saw and what to beef up to a professional saw. so my question is what saw best on current market look somewhere between the 500 and 600 pound mark?

 

I was looking at Husqvarna 445 chainsaw or Stihl MS 362 C-M

 

was offered this Efco CS5100-18" but after researching the make i heard there quite high on vibrations

 

any help is appertained

Yes parts are readily available . They are well engineered saws and dont have any of the , some times temperamental, auto tune problems . Dolmar or Echo seem to be the way to go at the moment .

If you decide to consider an Echo saw then the 2 models in that price range worth looking at are the CS-620SX or the CS-501SX. Multiple threads on here discussing them if you want to do a bit of research.

Parts are readily available for Echo saws but are rarely needed. No Autotune to go wrong they have proper carbs.

I just got a new 362 a few months ago, if its owt like its predecessor the 341 it will be a good saw, it took 3 years of punishment 6 days a week before being retired.
