The best power to weight ratio of any saw in it's class. You pick up this saw and you think it's actually smaller than it is. But when you start cutting firewood or limbing tree's it comes alive. The antivibration system is very good. The saw revs up smoothly and starts well. Every bit as good a saw as the stihls and husqvarna's I have owned. Which were all pro grade saws. I have been building log homes for the last 14 years and used chainsaws every day.
