Husqvarna 562 XP Chainsaw
I had to give the top slot on this list to Husqvarna, mostly because they have such a broad line of quality chainsaws. They are the worlds largest chainsaw manufacturer, with the most extensive line. This is far from their largest saw, but rather a good professional saw, which a homeowner with a patch of woods might be interested in buying. The 50 cc engine on this saw produces 4.7 HP, just like the Makita in the number two slot. The engine automatically tunes to match the cutting needs of the moment. No time is wasted on carburetor adjustments, as it automatically adjusts for differences in fuels, altitude, humidity and temperature. Husqvarnas RevBoost gives rapid acceleration and higher chain speeds. The engine is air injected, with a centrifugal air cleaning system for removing debris before even reaching the filter. Finally, like its big brother it has an adjustable oil pump and quick release air filters. A winner all around.
