Trying to decided on a new chainsaw, i need help.  My wife just gave me a Echo CS-400 ($290) for X-mas, but not reading a lot of good reviews.  I was looking at the Red Max one also.  I will be using this chainsaw often.  Anybody have suggestions. What do the pro use?

The pro's use the Husqvarna XP saws. These are high end professional grade saws, and depending on the amount of work you intend to do and the size of the trees you are felling would determine which one to use. With the exception of the limbing saws, all of the XP series are 50cc's or larger and would hold a bar from as little as 16" to as much as 72". The price varies anywhere from $400.00 to $1,760.00 depending on the size of the powerhead as well as the bar and chain set up.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions.
