Didn't consider the husky, used to use the older forestry level Stihls at work and I just figured they were the way to go. The weight is a lot higher though (15lbs vs around 10), which could be an issue carrying it into the woods.
really? the husky website specs the 240 as 10.3 lbs. maybe the one at canadian tire is a slightly different version. i know on their website it doesn't list a model so who knows, it may be a misprint. i'd still look into it just to be sure.
low weight is one of the things i love about my ms192T. it's only 7lbs and a compact package and has a surprising amount of grunt for a small saw. they run the narrower chains though which don't last as long but cut a bit quicker as there is less material to move. the price is over $400.
if the weight will be a concern then the stihl might be a better option. how are you planning to carry the saw, in a pack or on your shoulder?
