Hello, I'm looking for new chainsaw cause my old died. I've found some suitable chainsaws for me:
Echo cs-590
Stihl MS 271
Husky 543xp , 545 mk II
Which of them would be the best?
It will be used to cut wood for fireplace, mostly hard one like oak or acacia and cutting down some fruit trees in my garden.

CS590 is a beast saw, it feels very good and easy to operate. 271 is good too but 9cc less than the Echo.

And the 271 is the same weight as a MS291,
Echo if it’s big wood and you can physically deal with the weight of the saw,
otherwise the 545.

200$ shipping
That’s a lot for shipping, if the OP is in Poland, most of the time products are
cheaper there than in the rest of Europe.
May be look at Makita EA5000, I see them in the UK on various sites, they be on German
sites too which would reduce shipping.
Nothing slow about this Makita vs Husky 550 mk2

Stihls always sell easier do to the stihl dealers every half mile. Dealer by me says he dont make squat off saws hardly. You know hes lying.
Isn't there an issue with the glued on covers on the cylinders coming off/leaking, on the current Stihl clamshells? I think there are two recent threads here.
we have had no trouble with them here as of yet

So after gathering some info i've made little bigger list with all chainsaws from companies that i know, which im interested into:
MS 311 stihl 4,2km 60cc 7,2kg
MS 271 stihl 3,5km 50cc 6kg
husqvarna 545 mark2 7kg 3,6km 50cc
husqvarna 450 II e-series 50cc 3,2km
shindaiwa 600sx 60cc 4,5km 7,5kg
Shindaiwa 501sx 50cc 3,5km 5,5kg
Echo CS-590 60cc 4km 7kg
Echo CS-620 SX 60cc 4,4km 7,5kg
As i heard MS311 is beast with husky 545 is that true? Im bit worried about shindaiwa and echo on/off switch and choke hat, won;t they last shorther then stihl/kushy switches?
