Stihl!!!! My outdoor equipment is going all that way, but not for any good reason that I have. I just like the Orange and white contrast over solid orange.

I think they all “LOOK” good. Some of the small ones are a bit funky lookin though. But most of them “LOOK” appealing to me.

As for reliability,

Lets be honest. If its a top name brand it is going to be dang reliable regardless of the brand. Yes they ALL have have their problems. That is a guarantee. Thats what happens when you MASS produce things.

I like them all.

I’m sorry but I have to say the 80cc dolkita looks pretty damn sexy. The muffler looks the most stylish out of all the brands, and the bumper spikes combined with the dome top just has a really good looking appeal to me.

I know a saws most important feature is reliability, but that’s not what this thread is about now is it?

I think beyond that the 3 series husky is pretty old fashioned looking, same with the stihls...

The newer 5 series huskies look great :)

My vote is Husqvarna at the moment. The Creamsickle products never looked as good, IMO, and the 880 is the only one with the utilitarian look Stihl had through the 0 series and the early MS series.

I perfer Husqvarna saws. They never failed me. But I do own three older stills haven’t ran them yet. I think the German made Stihl had better quality. I have a stable of partners too. My little mcculloch 9” bar will whoop them all.
