Hundreds of people worldwide over the years have asked which is the
best chain saw. I have used both Stihl and Husqvarna
in a professional capacity and now my personal preference
is Husqvarna Chain Saws. This is all to do with milling
however, as in the woods, I find no difference between
the saws when falling and bucking.
North America has gone litigation crazy and due to this you can be
sued by a company for expressing an opinion, especially if it is another
company like mine. I hate it but that is the way it is, nobody takes
responsibility for their actions, when in doubt sue, lawyers love it. So here
- I do not know why but Stihl has cancelled any
warranty on Stihl chain saws sold in Canada and shipped
to the U.S.
088 is now only sold with the 404 chain which produces a larger kerf than the
3/8ths chain. Because Stihl has been in contact with me I cannot make any other
comments than the above!!
Husqvarna chain saws - I find that the Husqvarna 3120 is an excellent
milling saw with some added features for sawmilling.
There is a lever to the left of the saw handle that
can give you extra oil to your sawbar when you need
it in different species of wood. Also Husqvarna still
offers a 3/8ths chain and bar which has a narrower
kerf (removes less wood in each cut) than the 404
commend Husqvarna in protecting their customers worldwide with an extremely
good warranty of 2 full years for home users (consumers).
