    "Whether you choose a Stihl or a Husqvarna chainsaw is fully up to you. However, it can be summed up like this – Husqvarna chainsaws are usually lighter, which makes them a popular choice for homeowners that only need a saw for small tasks. Stihl chainsaws are usually larger and have more power, so they are great for timber cutters and others who frequently need a chainsaw for large jobs."

    Both brands have their good and bad saws. What are you going to do with it? What size saw are you considering? How much experience do you have with chainsaw?

    I have multiple saws from 44cc to 90cc, Stihl, Husqvarna, and Echo.

    I’ve used both and like the Stihl the best. I like the weight & balance. Plus they hold up.

    I dont like stihl chainsaws. I love their other products I have used, though.
    I never hear anything bad about husq but that doesnt mean much.
    Sorry for the lack of information lol..

    I have a 16” Stihl and a 20” husqvarna. It depends on how much and what you will be cutting. I am partial to Husq for larger saws, they seem to be a bit more heavy duty, but the 16” Stihl is really great for limbing and falling smaller trees. How big of trees are you cutting, and how much will you be using it? Stihl I think has cheaper and parts more readily available.
