    There is no doubt you need the larger bar. By "medium" size logging you are always prone to sawing logs that are larger than expected. Plus - larger bars are 1) easier to maintain and clean 2) more durable and less prone to failure. Also (you may already know this judging by the question) but I am a HUGE proponent of buying <a href="http://www2.northerntool.com/husqvarna-chainsaws.htm">Husqvarna chainsaws</a>.. watch that vid.. it will demonstrate why. Why? I have had over 8 chainsaws in my life and none lasted more than a year expect my husqvarna.

    OH ok, I hear you. Yes that is true some things can have a smaller engine and put out an amazing amount of hp.

    Yeah and I'm not denying that fact, you're right. I even say it effects how fast you can cut. I'm just trying to explain the question about why the smaller engine is more powerful.

    Shane,
    I didn't say the length of the bar affects the actual engine output from the sprocket. However you lose power because it takes more power to run the chain through wood near the end of the bar. This is fact, not opinion. Ask anyone who has used a saw for a living. The longer the bar the less cutting power you have over all. I know what I am talking about.

    The length of the bar has nothing to do with the motor's power output. It will effect how fast you can cut, but an motor's output is just that.

    The Stihl gets more horses out of less displacement because Germans have magick powers that let them get big power out of small engines. There are plenty of cars that have smaller engines yet send more power to the wheels than ones with bigger engines.

    Here on our little farm we have a Husky 450 rancher and it is a heck of a lot better than the Poulan we used to use. Very relyable, starts good...Swedish engineering ooohh! I have only heard good things about Stihls but they ain't Swedish.The Swedes really know how to make things to cut wood! Moira Knives, Estwing and Fiskars axes and blades, the decendants of those who made patternwelded viking swords (the best in Europe in 800AD) are still on the job!
