Re: New saw needed

Thanks, My old husky 51 has served me well and have no reason to change brands, the 455 seems to be about equal in capability, now approaching 80 years in age I cant handle much bigger but need the 20" bar for these big Monterey pine trees I use for firewood, in reading some of the posts about the old saws-I worked a lot of years in the PNW & N. CA in the redwoods, those old two man saws we had then were real man killers compared to the pro saws of today, when Homelite hit the woods with the first belt drive saws they made in the early fifties they were game changers, fellers tossed those old Mac's, Mall's and Titans in the back of their trucks and forgot them, one tidbit I remember was the old Stihls were affectionately known as "Hitlers", those were made pre-WW2, used saws was all a person could find until after that.
