Stihl 310 chainsaw is a firewood workhorse. I would go the smaller size stihl chainsaw if I was just cleaning up my woods and the only reason being is because of the weight of the chainsaw. The smaller you go the lighter they are which means you can carry it all day long without over exerting yourself. Anything bigger than the the stihl 310 is used for felling trees with a noticeable weight increase. Bigger fuel tank , bigger motor, longer blade ect..

I own a Stihl 026 with a 20" bar and we have a Stihl pole saw at the lease that both work great.  I got a chain grinder to keep my blades sharp without having to wait on the guys at the saw shop to get around to it. Getting that blade grinder is some of the best money I ever spent.  Another guy at the lease has a Husky that he loves.  He tries to talk junk about Stihl, but his Husky has been in the shop twice versus never for either of our Stihls & my 026 is twice as old as his Husky too.

It's funny, but I was half embarrassed to claim my Poulan 18" .  Normally folks make fun of it.  However, it has served me well for 9 years.  This was my first chain saw, and I just went to Home Depot and got what was on sale. I am not sure why some folks have such a poor opinion of Poulan.

Agreed, I've had mine for about eight years now. It's an 18" Poulin Pro (42cc), for as much as I've used it, it's held up pretty well! Granted, it's not a "professional grade" saw but, for the price, it's hard to beat.
