I've had the saw for 8 years. I cut around 4-5 bush cord a year. I've had the saw back to the dealer 3 times now. Each time it's a $250.00 rebuild and replacement of mostly carburetor parts. It runs well for a couple of times then starts acting up again. I have a co-worker with the same saw and the same problems. When it's cutting it's great, lots of power, but it won't idle and it when I let off the throttle it races. Always has done this and I guess it always will, till I get frustrated enough to replace it.
