Folks - New here, looking for some advice. I am going to purchase a new chainsaw and I am having a difficult time trying to chose between a Husqvarna 455 and the Stihl MS 290. I know the models are not 100% comparable but the local Stihl dealer wants way to much for a MS 310 ($429, 16"). From browsing online, they both seem to have their issues. The common complaint I find about the Husqvarna is there seems to be issues with the oiler. The issue with the Stihl seems to be arounds cranking it and idling. I assume these issues are not wide spread with either product. I have local dealers and service for both brands. I am looking for anyone who has had a good or bad experience, knowledge, or a suggestion for either product. I am open to different models/brands but would like to stay 400 or below. I think I would like a 18" or 20" bar for some of the larger hard woods. I had a Poulan Pro with 16" bar but had major issues with the chain coming off. I am not sure if it is a user error or the device. I used it pretty hard but I have grown tired of the chain becoming very loose or completely off every 5-10 minutes.
