Thanks for the great information !! I'm buying some property with lots of trees and I was torn between the husqvarna 460 or the 570 and after seeing your video, you have helped me make my mind up, I will be buying the 570.

I used a variety of chainsaws ( size and make ) and this video gives a slightly biased opinion. He only shows small Stihls and large Husqvarna. I find the Stihls are far easier to maintain and as duarable if not more so than the Husqvana, although the Husqvana does cut faster.

i use both and yes husqvarna cuts faster but its all personal preference

Stihl/Husqarna and Dolmar are the best.

husqvarnas and stihls are top but stihls are more exepnsive without a reason.so husqy.

I agree. I also find it more important to have saw that lasts long without any problems than how fast you can cut a tree. Huskys and Stihls both do a good job and I really don't care if a tree falls in 1 minute or in 1.2.

Hi Dave, I took my CS30 on your course with you at Sparsholt in October 2011 (I was the big guy Stuart) after I was the only one learning with an Husqvarna on that course I ended up buying a Husky 560xp from WGM so now I wouldn't buy anything else. What a great place at Sparsholt and a very relaxed course in your hands. I must say these videos are much better quality now 😉

the biggest thing is they didnt talk about how hard it is to change the chain on the husqvana
