I have used the 2165 almost every sunday for about 2 months now. I have cut several cord of wood with it so far. This saw is fairly lightweight for the amount of power that it has.

I got my j2165 about a year ago. It has never let me down and I dont half thrash it. I'm a tree surgeon and in a world dominated by stihl and husquvarna my jonsered punches well above its weight.

By the way. Im not a rep!!!!!!!!! (read more)
