The saw looks really beat up but still starts on the first pull and runs like a champ. Only complaint: woodchips and sawdust packs inside the safety brake housing and can interfere with smooth running so it needs to be taken apart and cleaned out regularly.
This saw is a serious tool in the class of the midsize Husqvarna and Stihl.
The saw is all of 15lbs with the 20in bar on it... If you are a novice to chainsaws i would recommend a using a smaller saw first to get the handle of a chain saw before moving into something this big. This is not a small limber saw so i wouldn't recommend taking it up a ladder to trim trees either... I am 6' 3" and 250lbs and it does wear my arms out after cutting for an hour or so. Remember this is a commercial grade saw that will last 20-30 years easy if you take care of it... not a $100 wal-mart saw!
I chose this saw over a Stihl and Husquvarna because you get more power for less money (stihl ms362 $650, husky 357xp $670). It came highly recommended on several online chat rooms by professional tree fellers. It has several cylinder and piston upgrade kits on the market for $100-$140 to upgrade the saw to a 79cc or even 84cc saw. There is also a pro-grade 2 stage air cleaner kit for it (part number 957173400). This saw is made by Dolmar which is a professional saw company from Germany. Many professional tree services use Dolmar saws for their quality and price. My local Grasshopper mower dealer sells them in fact!
Now for the bad... You won't be able to find a case/box to fit it... I bought the $30 hard case from Northern Tool (Item# 190700) and used a heat gun to "soften" a few spots inside so I could mold them to fit.Read more ›
I might get out there and use it again today!

Good saw, powerful, but the tank does leak. Must store it on it's side. Some year I may take it apart and fix the tank, but not a high priority.Published 5 months ago by Argis

This is a fine piece of commercial equipment. You have a tiger by the tale and it rips even hard woods. I read the review about this unit being a piece of crap. Read morePublished on August 14, 2012 by coolhand don
