Anything by Jonsered. They are cheap, made to the same standard if not better than Husqvarna, are easy to service, have fantastic torque, and even the DIY versions are able to work all day long. I have used Stihl and Husky and Dolmar, and settled on Jonsered in the end. Huskys are great, but a sod to start and restart, and are dear. Stihl - and I buy their gear new, not used, are rotten starters - they would pull your arm off if they are in a huff. We use their consaws for cutting steel, and starting them is an art, not a science. The jonsered chainsaws are faultless, easy to start, light, powerful and easy on fuel, and best of all, they are cheap, and even cheaper used, from the Uk. Try ebay or Donedeal.ie maybe, or go wild and buy new, you will not regret it. I own 15 acres of mature hardwood forest, and have given all of our saws serious stick. Jonsered are the dogs whatsits.
