This is the yard and property maintenance division team at my place! We have a Husky saw on the hood, a Stihl saw on the fender, a Husky brush whacker on the running board and a Stihl brush whacker set up for weed whacking, there on the front porch by the wheel. Let's see what patrols your land! If you are clearing brush, then you should consider a brush whacker. If you are cutting brush as in bushes and the like, you'll be throwing chains. You can cut some larger trees down with certain blades on a brush whacker. Ours will cut up to 6 inch trees believe it or not. Lot less bending over too! If you are doing a lot of limbing, then a 20 to 24 inch bar is where you need to be looking. My Husky saw has a 24 inch and that in my opinion is perfect for limbing, but the saw is heavy because of the size. My Stihl has I believe an 18 inch, and something that small, is great if you are climbing up into the tree for limbing as Rival mentions.
