Hi all! I haven't been around since burning season was in full effect, but it's good to be back! I noticed the changes to the forum. Very nice! So far so good. I've never owned a chainsaw before and don't need anything heavy duty, so I'm putting it out here. I'm budgeting an absolute maximum of $250 for this. I have LOTS of questions: 1) Does more CC's necessarily mean more power? 2) I know Stihl and Husquy are the best, but are there any sleeper brands that cost less? I'm thinking something in an 18" bar. Please chime in in with ANYTHING you might think is pertinent to a first time buyer! Thanks very much!
