First Chain Saw


no way, dont get the 30cc ms170. You will regret it imo. Way too small. I have the MS250 and it is the perfect all round saw. I have cut down some huge trees and it was up to the task. And its small and light for limbing.

by the way, dont go electric. Who wants to drag around extension cords all over. Unless you have a small stupid city yard where you can spit from one side and hit the other. Who wants a sissy sally girl saw that they share with their wife?

GO GAS!!!!!

I am completely on the other side of the fence on the gas vs electric. I just finished trimming a couple of trees today with a 16" electric chainsaw. Yes I had to use an extension cord; yes I keep an eye that I did not cut the cord when bucking limbs. But you cant be a dumb a$$ when using a chain saw either.

I dont live on a farm, I dont have to cut down trees every week. I am not an 'axe man', although I play one on T.V . If I dont have to worry about gas, winterizing it, carborator gunk up, small engine repair, ect, and it does what I need it to then I gotta go electric.

Bigger is usually better, but not always

First Chain Saw


I agree, I even have a cordless! The 14a electric with a sharp chain flies through limbs and the smaller stuff.
The gas saws go to the woods with me. USUALLY I just use the Stihl, the Dolmar is backup and for large trees.

Gas is nice, but I don't like lugging my $450 saw up into a tree
Best results I have had in a tree is my $80 sawzall
