A buddy ask which 20" chain saw I'd recommend. He was looking around $700. He has "Snap On" tools & I have Craftsman & S&K & mixed. I quickly said " the new Husq 562XP", $740 http://www.husqvarna.com/us/forest/products/xp-saws/562-xp/#specifications. Some like the MS 362, $680 http://www.stihlusa.com/chainsaws/MS362.html He was looking at the Solo 656-20 , $700. http://www.solousa.com/store/flypage/chain_saws/656-18.html found one on line, amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Solo-656-20-20-Inch-2-Stroke-Powered/dp/B003AOBW2S Hadn't heard of the Solo brand before, impressive specs. Looks nice & the lightest weight of the 3. Hope he gets one so I can see it up close. I'd be happy with either. All 3 look great & are around the same price. Pricey to me, but I'd say these are the top of the line saws out there. Which one would you recommend? I like Husq & Stihl because of more local dealers. I think the Solo may be online parts, which I guess I do that allot now anyway.
