    Got 2 both Husky. 53 and 62 cc. My chainsaw man wants to buy back my 53 as he says its one of the best ever he has come across. Real difference in your chain performance i.e. chisel or semi chisel. Helps if you properly sharpen. Some make a real dogs breakfast out of this important task. Best example is the skid site with people getting their load of wood for the winter. Some very angry people gloating as you slay the logs with ease. LOL.

    BRADS, you need a 395 mate....

    Not sure why this is even a poll. EVERYBODY knows Husky saws are better

    Got a 36 and 365 at home, and use 357 and 395 at one of my jobs

    You really only need to go semi chisel if theres mud on the logs... or you hit the ground lots. Full is guna give you way better performance, point your file about 10 degrees up and try to keep the bottom of the hook flush with the chain and you'll be racing

    Ive got 2 Stihls, my old mans little one its probably about 30-40cc and my 660, they literally just go and go an go, you pick them up after months of no use, chuck some fresh gas in give it a rip and they raw into life every time. Unbeatable reliability and performance, in my mind there is no serious competition. None of the Husky's Ive ever seen even have a patch on my saw's they just simply are not in the same class.

    And just a side note why does every body who owns and raves about Husky's have two in the same size range? I can understand a big saw and little saw but the only real reason you would have two in the same range is you just cant trust them not to drop their arse in the middle of the job
