Question Chainsaw!

Ok, I currently have a pos craftsman chainsaw that I spend as much time re-adjusting due to poor design as I do actually using it. I think it's time to look for a new one! I use it a few times a year and cut down some pretty good sized stuff on our 4 acres. I want something with plenty of power that will last but not break the bank either. What do you all suggest? Thanks!

Stihl is probably the best you can get, my uncle has a tree removal business and uses nothing but stihls they start when you need them too, no problems except minor tuneups here and there, a little more pricy but one will last youa long time, if you'd rather have something else i would say go for the husqvarna.
