Fathers day is coming up and I am in the market for a new saw. It would be with an 18" bar for general roughing and blocking. Feed back, Pro and con would be great? Sawdust to the pockets everybody!!

get a 362 there not too heavy and have enough power but
if you open your mind you would want a husquvarna there lighter and better balanced
dont get me wrong i like stihl in fact i have a 361 and its still my favored saw but stihl
made the 362 and is 1 more pound with the same power
go to your husky dealer and check out the 562xp and the 555 there the same saw but the xp
has better ports

Did not dare to wait till after Fathers day or I might have to wait another year?? Thanks Robin,Wade,John, Marine and all you cats for the feed back. I did not need anything to big, something comparable to my old husky 350 that kept blowing the muffler off. Oh well!
Sawdust to da pockets folks.
