I got mine today. Using it on the big job starting Monday. Looks well built. I will report back with my findings after I put some good hard hours on it.

I tested the new saw this morning on an old tree stump out back. Seemed to work very nicely but the real test is if it can handle 16 hours of hard cutting nearly non stop.

We run the Stihl units and they see hundreds of hours of work a year, generally speaking the staff wear out a chain every three weeks just from use, they are simply amazing.

Well the saw ran for 4.5 hours strait today. Went through 2 tanks or bar and chain oil which seems a little excessive but its a small tank so all Is good I guess. I am very very happy with it. It took down several 20" dia oak branches without skipping a beat. Got pinched a few times but that's not the saws fault that's my fault. I plan to run it 9.5 hours tomorrow to finish this months invoice on this job. Hopefully it will hold up. My father "much smarter about saws than me" inspected the bar and chain and sharpened it and said it looks like it did quit well, not the amount of wear he would expect from a TB saw so that's good I guess. The chain fell off one time but again that's my fault as I forgot to adjust the bar after initial chain stretch, at the same time I was cutting sideways when it came off. All in all I am extremely pleased with it.

Its actually an 8" bar. Cut one side then cut the other, gravity takes care of the rest. 4 inches of brittle old oak cant handle a thousand pounds of wood.

Exactly. Not the safest thing in the world but do able. Trust me there were many a time I heard a crack and ran back lol Its amazing the crashing sound that kind of wood makes when it hits the ground.
