    Hi All,

    I am having difficulties trying to choose a new saw. I can not find reviews on the MS 211 C-BE model which I am really interested in. I believe this replaced the 210 C-BE (emmisions update?). I have also been considering the Husqvarna 440/445 for the higher cc's. I have don't need more than a 16" and feel less is too small. Will the MS 211 C-BE go through a 12" heavy oak OK with only 35cc?

    My needs are only to take down a maybe 12 inch tree per year and any storm downed limbs/trees. So really not that much. What do you think would be best choice out of these saws? Both saws are the same price but are higher cc's more important between these models or do they basically cut the same?

    My feedback from dealers is the Stihl seems to have a better easy start and stronger tool tensioner?

    Has anyone used both saws that can give a comparison?

    I appreciate your thoughts.
