STIHL!!  I love the products!  2 Mini Boss saws and one Farm Boss.  My Pole saws & weed eaters are Orange and White too.  I'll throw rocks at anything else. 
It matters not the weapon nor its caliber, rather the caliber of the one who wields it.

I am a Stihl user as well. I have had mine for 15+ years and it still runs like a charm. Also have some of their other products. My father always preferred Johnsrud chainsaws because the were always real workhorses for larger work.

my weedeaters and blower is stihl as well,  It was a toss up between them and Husqvarna in the end the stihl dealer is closer so I went with them.

My first chainsaw was a husqvarna 55 rancher. I have an outside wood stove so I burn alot of wood, After 9 years it finally wore out. I replaced it with a husqvarna 455 20" bar. Sweet saw. Hopefully it last as long as the 55 rancher did.

Does your 455 rancher have a primer bulb?(I thought they all did but I wasnt 100% sure) If so, how many pulls until it starts? I'm just curious b/c my uncle has a smaller husqvarna with a primer bulb and his takes forever to start.

Put me on a lake with biggin' on the line
Put me around a campfire cookin' something I just cleaned

I don't have one personally, but I use my father's which is a 18" Poulan Pro.  Can't wait to get it out here shortly when things dry up a bit...!!!!!

A Stihl 270 and a Stihl 290. Both work great and the Stihl brand is awesome. Just cut a spreader load this past weekend.

stihl ms250 and ms310 could not live without them!! I do more habitat improvement with them than food plots
my greatest fear in life is when I die my wife will sell my hunting equipment for what she thinks I spent

I have a Poulan 16" chain saw in Real Tree Camo.....I have to watch where I set it down in the woods cause its easy to loose! [;)] It has been a great saw and I have used it the past 4 years more than ever,we had the In-land Hurricane last May 2009 and the storm blew down over 40 large tree's across our 100 Acre Farm.I plan on getting a better Stihl chain saw because I will have plenty of wood to cut for the next few years and the Stihl's have a good reputation of lasting and running longer.

I have always had good luck with Stihl chain saws.  Right now I have a 009, 250 and a 044.

Poulon 16" . I've had it for over 20 years . Other than chains , I have only had to replace the side cover where the tension adjuster is ....... Loaned it out and a friend screwed it up . I bought the part for $16 .
