/ What is the good Chainsaw for clearing? #51
I use Stihl saws and have had good look with them. Their Farm Boss is a good saw. Their pole saws are good, but they are heavy.As I posted before, I am clearing several lots, and need a good chainsaw to tackle the bigger trees and can grind them down afterward with a stump grinder. But you really cant find out much of anything out of the stores on what works for solid pine and oak that we have down here. What is a good Chainsaw that starts on the first pull, lightweight but powerful, and doesnt breakdown after a day or two of heavy cutting..?
Maybe that's a New Mexico thing... It is both/and they have them at HD, I got mine at small shops. See them everywhere here.Mostly independent small engine and equipment shops. HD carries their weed wackers, but not saws.
Interesting. The only Echo products they have at our Home Depot are weed wackers, but I haven’t looked at the HD online products. I did buy a Echo wheeled weed wacker at a local independent small equipment dealer and that is a great machine. Still am partial to Stihl chainsaws. That’s what most of the local loggers use. Something that I’ve noticed is that loggers in the west seem to prefer Stihl, but loggers in the east seem to use Huskies. Both are good, and though I’ve never seen loggers with Echo saws, I’m sure they are a good product based on their other items I own.Maybe that's a New Mexico thing...

The ECHO CS-590 Timber Wolf chainsaw with a 20 in. bar is more powerful than today's ranch and farm saws. It's built for the toughest environments and features easy-starting, easy operation and quick maintenance. The Timber Wolf chainsaw's cutting power makes it ideal for cutting firewood on a...www.homedepot.com
The auto industries now use fuel injection. Gas with ethanol eventually destroys carburetors. Fuel injection is probably not economically feasible on small engines, so they still have carburetors. I always fill my small equipment fuel cans with ethanol free gas at a local petroleum dealer (at a considerably higher cost than standard gas with ethanol). Even though the ethanol free fuel is expensive, i only use about 10-20 gallons per summer for my small engine equipment.Why can't the manufacturers adjust? The auto industry did.
