I am looking to get a new saw - I have a hand me down Poulan Pro that isn't going to cut it(Pun intended).
I am in Michigan and I will be cutting around 30-40 cord a year. I am new fairly new to this, but I am trying to figure out if I should go w/ a lower level pro model or a higher end land/homeowner model.
There are Echo, Dolmar, Stihl, Johsered and Husky dealers with in a 1/2 hour of me so I have a lot of choices. I will be cutting whatever is in front of me and I will probably only have 1 saw for a while so I need a good balance of features. I am thinking that an 18" bar would be good? I don't really want to spend any more than $500 or so - less if that is what is best for me. I have learned a lot from this site, so thanks in advance.
