I am looking to get a 50cc saw, I prize reliability and good engineering, and have been impressed with a smaller Makita / Dolmar 34, and 3501. I also have a Still 390. In practice I tend to go for the lightest saw that will do the job at hand as the Stihl gives me backache and the air filter clogs up quickly! I want a professional saw that will last me a long time, and I don't necessarilly want the latest gizmos and catalytic converters if they just add to the weight and reduce reliability, although easy start does appeal! FR Jones are doing good deals on the Husky 550, 10-15% off + spare bars and chains chucked in, but judging by comments it is not the most reliable saw out there ... The professional Makita 5000 appeals to me, as does the the Dolmar 5105 series or the older design Dolmar 115. Spare parts and servicing are a slight concern if I go for the Dolmar, are they readily available? I also hear good things about the Stihl 260. Which would you professionals go for, and are there any other brands I should look at in the 50cc range, or am I looking at the "best" saws available?
