Im the proud owner of a XL12 (blue) Homelite. This old little beast will pull a 20" roller nose bar with seni-chisel chain. It will wear you out,, also have a 3314 poulan for limbing, and a remmington elec pole saw. You notice they get lighter as the list goes on,cause i'm getting old!!!

Thanks xdiver, that reminded me that I have a BAttery operated saw that I really like also. Got it at Harbor Freight 3 years ago. Nice and quiet.

Currently a Husqvarna Rancher 455, 20".
Used to have a Troy Built saw but every time I wanted to cut wood;
Step 1. Get saw out of box.
Step 2. Screw with it for a couple hours trying to get it to work.
Step 3. Put saw back in box.
Step 4. Curse loudly.
Step 5. Off to the shop for repairs.
And after the third or fourth time of this process Step 6. Get a good saw!!

that is how my craftsman is getting but on top of that once the chain gets worn a little it will randomly jump off of the bar so its not real safe to use anymore

Got a Poulan Wild thing, model 2375, 18" bar. Son in Law gave it to me brand new 2 years ago when my old Poulan finally gave up the ghost. Actually I liked the old one better, this one has leaked oil since day one and can't seem to find the source yet, but it does the job ok, just have to keep an eye on it :).

Back in Illinois I had a 1/4 acre lot and bought a Mccullah electric chainsaw and a 100 foot cord. I could reach anywhere in the yard from my house and it worked fine. We moved to a 4 acre farmstead in Nebraska and I found that the cord was rather limiting. It's still a great little saw, but I've since purchased a Stihl MS180 C-B. What a difference!
