Whoever designed the filtration system wants a good kick up the backside. What a joke on dry jarrah not even through a tank of fuel and it chokes up..great the filter is doing its job says the dealer..i also have a 365 husky cutting the same wood that will do several tanks before i think about the filter. I'm toying with the idea of modifying the filter cover a couple of 90 degree elbows pointing at the operator with pre filters or maybe a cowling over the existing filter very disappointed..otherwise the saw has plenty of grunt.

tuff saw for tuff timber

Have had this chainsaw for over 4yrs now and it has cut up some massive trees at a friends farm it has never let me down I do make sure that I regularly pull it down after every use.cleaning and blowing out all the sawdust etc making sure chain and bar are adjusted and dressed which I recommend doing to keep this saw in good running order.With doing this this chainsaw will last a very long time as this saw is made in Germany using quality components throughout I would highly recommend this saw to anybody.

Not sure when Makita bought out Dolmar .But i will give you a tip mate if you're thinking about buying one and want to cut dry wood then don't waste your money. I live in western australia and cut dry jarrah the air filter blocks up before you use a tank of fuel and its not just a case of give the filter a quick rinse in petrol and start again if it's not completely dry it will block up again just about stralght away. The dealer said shows how good the filter system is..no it's not it shows a major design flaw one of the reasons they flog them so cheap..heaps of grunt light for the size but if you want to cut a heap of wood very infuriating. My 365 husky will cut the same wood and i'll probably use 6 tanks of fuel before i look at the filter. If you buy the makita with the 29 inch bar thats another problem the slot is wider than the smaller dolmars so you have to make modifications to use different sized chains.buy a still or a husky mate or the 8010 dolmar a great saw..

Anyone have a problem with the chain tightening mechanism on their Makita saw? On mine it keeps slipping and the chain becomes slack !

Makita saws are sourced in different countries. The spares should be available via Makita in Australia. If you have a German Makita it will be a Dolmar saw andbparts will definitely be available.
