We love bush camping and camp fires and thought I'd buy a SMALL chainsaw for camping for my husband for Fathers Day in 2 weeks. We will be RESPONSIBLE chainsaw owners, cutting just enough for a small campfire. Any suggestions?
Are you planning on cutting "green"/living brush? It does not burn well and it is smokey. Are you camping where you are allowed to cut bush?
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

I work with a volunteer trail crew clearing trails in the National Forests and we use nothing but Stihl chainsaws. The USFS fire hotshot crews use them also. Very dependable and they have a full line from homeowner saws through farm and professional saws.

I'll throw in a vote for the smallest Echo. Bash me now. But it was a dependable saw and still is with it's new owner (i moved to a house that had no trees and did not need it any longer) Small, light weight and cranked every time. Affordable.
