All right, it's time to upgrade from an electric chainsaw to a gas powered. I like the grab and go of the electric, but it just takes too long. I've used the remmington electric for 1.5 years now. Went through 2 in that time. My cutting habits: Plan to cut 4-5 cords a year to stay a year ahead for wood burning; I'll fall the occasional tree (got 2 this year and plan to take 2 to 3 more this spring), but most of my wood comes from scrounging; I figure typical tree widths for me are under 14 inches. Absolute max 20 inches; I'll butcher any species I can get locally, but hardwoods are preferred. About 80% of what I have for next year is hardwood. Half of that is sugar maple and white birch. Based on what I've read, I like the Stihl MS180 . . . but I have no experience with gas saws, only electric. So I'm not a novice, but I realize with more power comes a need for more respect. What saw do you reckon? Many thanks.
