    I'm new and this is the first saw I can call my own. I've cut wood for the past few years to heat my home in Virginia through winter. I have been borrowing a Husqvarna 55 with a 20 inch bar. It was the first saw I had ever used and little to my knowledge it never had a low kickback chain on it.

    Well today I decided to pull the trigger on the MS271 with a 18 inch bar. I also got the carrying case, doubled my warranty, and the 2 in 1 sharpening system. Since I switched from a 20 to a 18 I got to pick the new chain. I choose the 26RS chain and so far I'm loving it. Bar none the best cutting chain I have ever used. I will probably get the stock chain for limming and those awkward cuts.

    Maybe this should be moved to the chainsaw section.
