    I have an old Homelite 24 inch that runs great after dropping a little fuel down the intake!! Smoke right thru anything I can throw at it and as an added bonus it is loud and pisses the neighbors off!!

    Was up in the pecan trees last Sunday and the wife was saying very bad things down on the ground.

    I have a Worx 10" corded pole saw that the chainsaw part will come off and can be used as a standalone chainsaw. Seriously it works very well. The only caveat is that the electric cord is a royal PITA. I'd definitely go battery powered Dewalt if it's an option that will work for you. Battery powered tools are a lot better than they used to be. I have a battery powered lawnmower and leaf blower and they are fantastic. Just slap a battery in and go to town.

    I am very happy with my Hart 40v electric saw from WalMart. I don't have any plans of supplementing my income by cutting fire wood, so this thing works very well. When I pull the trigger it works. What more could I ask?

    FWIW, my (2) electric saws are corded. One is a pole (Remington, 10" I think?) that can also be used standalone, the other is a Harbor freight (12-14"?) cheapy. Both work great.

    I also have a 24" Homelite (the old blue one), and a 14" Homelite. Both ran great when last started, I just can' t pull 'em anymore.

    Gettin' old beats the alternative, but it ain't always a bed o' roses. :/

    Have a Stihl 310 for quite a while now and I never found it hard to start. The trick to a Stihl is ONLY use the blue Stihl branded 2 cycle oil mixed right instead of the dollar store red cheapo crap. Saw mechanic told me that and he was right.
    Had a Husky Rancher 455 before that and that was one tough sum buck. It would eat any kind of oil or gas or mix, it didn't care.
