    I ran the saw pretty good this afternoon, I'm impressed. The first two tanks I ran 24/1 then went to 32/1. After adjusting the chain from using it earlier this week it didn't loosen anymore, I fell three trees and cut them up. On the last stump cut I hit a hidden rock, time to remove the chain and run it through the sharpener. It starts easy, if it will hold together for a year or two it will be well worth the price.

    Greg, The Carlton chain you have is a really good chain. a lot cheaper than Stihl or Oregon but will hold upto a lot of cutting. Bob

    The chain loosened up a lot the first time I cut with it, not so much since. Iā€™m looking to replace the bar and chain with a 16ā€ , I have a bigger saw with a 20ā€ already, my limb saw is a late 70ā€™s Poulan super 25 that needs a flywheel, one of the starter dog ears has been broke off for years. This saw with a shorter bar would work good.

    Is that one of them "FarmerTec" saws? I have been seeing ads for them online. I checked them out , and they seem to be part-for part replicas of the Stihl saws.

    It's a close copy of a Stihl, it cuts good if you don't push it. I've run about 4-5 tanks of fuel through it and so far it's performance has been better than I expected.
