Huh....

None of those have ever been a huge problem for me.... There's more than just two ways of starting a saw - I can't say as I've ever used either the toe in handle or a drop start.

Electric saws are nice, as are gas saws. Keep the chain sharp and either one will do the average homeowner's work without a bit of trouble.

Biggest downside to gas saws is having to keep the fuel fresh. Since I switched to a steel can, that hasn't been an issue, I can use the 2 gallons in a couple seasons (same mix for the weed wacker too) and the steel can keeps it fresh that long. Plastic cans I remember having trouble with the fuel past about six months.
