Re: Best Chainsaw

Hi Red
I'm a Maintenance Joiner so have some experience with timber/wood you could say,but certainly believe we never stop learning each & every day. So if you could post your info on chopping & splitting it would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks

Re: Best Chainsaw

Hi Red
Thanks again for your kind reply, like you I'd thought may the 14" bar would be a better long term investment for the larger logs.
The prices I found were
MS170 12" - £175
MS171 14" £190
Not price difference
