If your going to choose an electric, there are three competitors in the professional saw market. Stihl again would be my preference. The MSE220 is the most powerful electric saw easily available. Sthil also makes a homeowner grade pair of saws the MS140/180 C-BQ Husquavarna has their 316E which is a fairly good saw, but not as powerful as the big Stihl, nor is it as comfortable for me to use as the Stihl. Third would be the Makita UC3530A which has a real following among the chainsaw carvers, as, I believe, it spins at a higher RPM. To me it seems that this saw is the least powerful, it is however a very comfortable saw to use. All these saws use commonly available saw chains and bars.

A comparison in quality to these saws compared to Worx, Remington, Craftsman, etc. would be like comparing Bosch, Milwaukee, or Makita circular saws to Black & Decker, Ryobi, or Craftsman circular saws.

I made my living with chainsaws for a bunch of years and still work with them often.
