I have cut a lot of firewood and used virtually every brand of chainsaw. Like I said earlier, torque is your best friend cutting wood.
If a chainsaw is set up to turn 14,000 RPM and it doesn't have the torque to keep 10,000 RPM in a cut, would it not be better to have a saw that turns 12,000 RPM and will keep 11,000 RPM in the cut??
This example is only a guess but if you cut a lot of wood, you know what I am referring to.
Chainsaws are like cars and other items--usually what a person has at the time, is the BEST!
I know that Stihl is the best selling chainsaw in the world and Ford Trucks are the best selling truck in the world. So, why do people buy other brands?
I have an OLD Craftsman 3.7 cu in chainsaw with a 20" bar. I bought it new in 1980.
It is the ONLY saw I have ever used that will start the chain cutting with the saw idling, placed on the log, with light pressure, pull the throttle and it cuts.
That is TORQUE!
