Need a Chainsaw

So I'm thinking I need a chainsaw? I don't cut trees or anything, but am looking for one to cut some firewood and do cleanup type work. I'm thinking a little Stihl with maybe a 16" bar.........

Anybody got an opinion???









I should have known better. Around here opinions are like, uh, well trucks. Everyone's got one!!!

My dad has a Stihl. Not sure on the size but it's not very small. He loves it, one of the best things he ever bought quality/reliability - wise. That thing's a beast.

If your going to buy one dont mess around. Alot of the cheeper stihls are throw away saws just like a Poulan from wall-mart.

The best saw stihl makes.....................MS 361 Chain Saw - Stihl Incorporated United States - Products - Manufacturing and Selling The World's Number One Chain Saw

What do you think? Is 16" too small, or is it good enough for messing around with?

18" is where you start getting quality parts put into a chainsaw.
