For total volume here are worldwide number - for 2009. Could not find 2010. (this is cars, trucks, buses, etc) Now for any of them the car number was over 90% of totals. 2010 numbers for North America would have been better for sure.
Note: there are a lot of well know cars (super performance or very expensive versions that do not even make this list).

Just Stihl and Husky spend the major bucks to market their saws. As far as nationally recognized branding it prolly would have to be Echo.
Since Jonsered is nothing more than a red husky I would say the two most under recognized saws and under appreciated saw brands are Dolmar and Efco.
Based on how we've used our saws the last couple of years the efco's are one fine saw.
Way distant and far off subject of chainsaws.
i wonder if those that repeatedly bash echo have ever ran a cs-600p????
Nobody said Fisher Price??
Btw, I wouldn't trade my 911 for all the Toyotas and one Lexus I got rid of. My "normal" car now is older Buick Regal..less expensive to buy (used) and it stays away from shop. I fix it myself. ..... and cos something sells the most numbers is it better? Should we all run new homeowners saws? Or used real pro built that is rewarding to own?
I think I did see Fisher-Price chainsaw at ToysR Us......very nice, but low on torque...
Stihl and Husky may be the most popularly known, but they aint the best.
OK, I'll put Stihl in the top 3...but never Husky, at least not the new ones. Old ones, yes. Or Echo, every time I encounter one of them I gain a newer, lower opinion of them...
To me, Jonsered and Makita are in there with Stihl. Jonsered always have been a great saw to me, and Dolmar-Makitas are great, shame about the limited range.
One of our regional small farm chains, they own three or four locations, full service farm stores and sell both Husky and Stihl, won a trip to Sweden to tour a Husky factory, I talked to the owner after his trip and was shocked that the workers don't really know what brand of saw they will built until they come in, one day it may be Huskies the next Jonsered. I was kind of surprised to hear it. With knowing that, I'd buy whatever was the cheaper of the two colors, red or orange wouldn't make any difference to me.lol I don't see why they don't consolidate the brands, drop the Jonsered saw name and spend additional monies focused on one brand if there is just minor differences in handle position. Dosen't make sense to have two organizations, sales teams, marketing all that overhead. Say it would allow the united brand to pass on a savings of 25.00-50.00 a saw to the dealer, it would be a big deal.
if its red, leave it in the shed:highfive:
have you looked at a serial tag on a jonsered lately???????? just wondering if you know how they read.......
Yup. Husky also parent Redmax now too.
But right now the Jonsered are still Swedish built with good build quality and quality components. Husky are getting too big for themselves, churning out more and more Chinese made stuff with low quality components. Big box store cancer has set in.
so, are the 2153/346 2156/357 2172/372 ect.,ect, the same saws or not?
Hmmm...pretty much yeah. It's the lower saws where it really shows. I always regard Jreds these days as properly built Huksys!
I don't know this guy, but he's obviously got a good thinker on top of his neck.
I have owned & used Huskies,Stihls,Jonsereds,Poulons, over the years and recently bought a Dolmar. I never had a minutes trouble with any of them. I am a big time metal detector hobbyist and always enjoy trying different brands & models of detectors and the same goes for chainsaws. If I was told that I could get any 4 free saws I wanted I would get these and in this order
I'm liking the Dolmar more each time I use it.
Woodie...nice to see you back posting and cheerleading for your brand...in a honesty they need all the help they can get. Nothing against jonsered...but like you were here last...they are pretty far down the list as far as favorites are concerned .
