need a chainsaw

I was at Lowes yesterday and happened to go down the chainsaw isle and I am thinking maybe a 20in saw.
Currently on our lot we probably have up to a 6 inch caliper tree and a bunch of Ash trees. Obviously those ash trees will be coming down soon and want a saw that can handle it. I also HATE being under powered for anything so, give me your recommendations.
Is the Husqvarna a good brand? If not what is?
Is a 20 inch saw too much?
Not enough?

thanks

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

I have a Husqvarna 55 Rancher with a 20 bar on it. Best saw I have ever owned. My company also uses a couple Husqvarna chainsaws and demolition saws and they definately stand up to the abuse that they are given.
