Probably the best alround saw for your application for what I am presuming to be residential use would be a Stihl MS290 Farm Boss. Great, alround saw that is not too heavy, has decent power, and will accomodate upto a 24 " bar and at a very reasonable price for a saw of this quality and caliber.

I have an Stihl O-66 that I have had since 1993 and it is "stihl" running strong. I also have an MS192T that I use for limbing and tree trimming.

I have had Homelite and other brands, the Huskys are OK but just not in the same league as a Stihl. You will find that most loggers go with Stihl.
