...either a Husqvarna or Stihl. I'm guessing because of the extensive dealer network and experience. I only know 1 saw after 3 years of cutting and wonder why a Jonesred saw is hardly ever mentioned? The saw I use is on a semi permanent free rental from a good friend that has no use for it now but doesn't want to sell it. It's an older model and perhaps a bit on the heavy side for it's power rating but it seems like a great saw to me, esp now that I seemed to have learned how to use it properly! Any love out there for the J-Reds?
