What chain saws are good, and which should I stay away from? I had a Homelite 20 years ago that I really liked, but it got stolen. I would like to get one that is between 14-18", 2 stroke, and is around $150. I looked at some at the hardware store, but I wasn't impressed. Everything was plastic, and looked like it wouldn't last.I am fairly sure Husqvarna is out of my price range.
