The Homelite Timberman 45 18 is a good overall yard/handyman type saw. If you want a saw to cut more than a few cords a year get a stihl. If you only cut a few cords a year the Timberman will be just fine. Plus the price is right. No, the timberman cannot be compared to a stihl. The old homelites were the saws in there day. However, by replacing the bar and chain on the timberman18 with a quality 16" bar and chain you transform it into a decent little saw.
