I need to buy a chainsaw. I got home from work today to find that a rotten tree trunk had fallen sometime today. I got lucky and it only took out a scrub bush and made a mess. I don't want to borrow because borrowing leads to issues if anything happens. In my reading I have found that Stihl is the preferred brand these days. The dealer here has some MC 170s for $179. Thoughts? From reviews I'm pretty sure I don't want a Poulan. My dad always gets Craftsman saws that last a few seasons before the carbs either get gummed up or fall apart. Opinions?
