New to chainsaw world. Which saw to purchase for the price?
« on: October 04, 2014, 08:55:47 am »
Hello everyone,

I live in Denmark.
We have about 20m^3 of wood at our place to be cut and I would like to buy a chainsaw. I've used a borrowed chainsaw only a few times before to cut some logs and don't know much about the tool.

I've been offered the following chainsaws from a local collector and maybe you could suggest the best purchase I can make. All of them he says come with new chains, and work perfectly. (None of the wood is very thick, and I can lift every chunk by hand).

Jonsered 535 (1299kr - $218)
 Husqvarna 40 - $235
Husqvarna 42 - $235
Husqvarna 55 $235
Jonsered 455 - $201

I appreciate the suggestions,
Thanks a lot, -- Adrian

I'd go with the husky 55, good saw and quite prolific.  Easy to work on and parts will be easy to find

I agree on the 55, unless it is in worse condition than the others.

55 is the best of that bunch. I personally would rather have a 346xp.

It is not in the list of saws currently available to him, at any rate he likely won't find a decent 346XP in that price range.

I would rather have a ported Poulan 335.   But not on the list.   Oh well.
