    Just wondering if anyone has tried both saws. Read tons of reviews, but looking for opinions from experts giving these saws a real workout.

    Thanks

    Don't know about the 620 but as a homeowner with forested back 40 a stihl 044 and an ms360 both cut like hot knife through butter with RS chains

    the 620p is a very strong saw in its class-- i also like the MS361.

    now the ms362 that is another matter -- i don't know what a MS362 costs --i would probably take a dolmar 6100 over the 362--- i think the 362 is overpriced for what it is.

    my favorite stihl is the 044/ms440

    Spoke with a gentleman yesterday who sells the Echo and Stihl out west. Says Echos have never caught on really, but he has sold hundreds of 362s, with very happy customers. Have a great dealer/repair shop for the Stihl near me, too. So guess I'm leaning that way now.
