Best chainsaw for pruning the top of apple trees?

14 years ago

I have several chainsaws that I use to cut firewood on the ground. I have lots of apple tress that I prune with a ladder, hand saw and a pole pruner. I'm looking for advice on the best small (14" maybe?) chainsaw that I can use to get the suckers and large branches from the tops of the trees. I'm a woman who weighs about 150 (depending on the year) and want something fairly lightweight and easy to start. My other saws are Stihl and was reading about the top handle models but think after using the regular rear handles ones for so long, I might not be comfortable with one of those. I was looking at the MS 200 made by Stihl. Any advice would be helpful.
