great saw for the money.tuned the carby first off and have not had an issue with starting or reving out since.replaced the dogs the origional just too weak.put an 18'' bar on it 3/8 chain.25:1 fuel mix blows basically no smoke.carby tuning needs to be right.have cut about 10 ton of iron bark and box so far with this saw and i think its great.very important to keep your maintanance up to these saws.

Best cheap saw out
Starts easy, cuts like a beast and outshines plenty of saws 7-10x the price. Engine size chews the gas a bit and it goes through bar oil a bit more liberally than other saws but I had read that in other reviews. Plenty good value for the price and you can pick up chains for $15. Cuts well through Aussie hardwoods.
I’ve run it for 10+ hours no issues

Does the job well
OK, my first caveat for this review is that I have only had one major outing in the forest with this chainsaw, but it was firewood collecting in the Forrest. Cutting Jarrah. Marri etc. so not soft stuff. In short really happy with how it performed. Cost me $135 from Edisions on line (I had an e-coupon that reduced the price typically Ive seen them for $149.[all $AUD])
Starts really easily, really happy with the speed of cutting. It could be a tuning issue but it does seem to go through a lot of fuel, and I was using it straight out of the box....
Questions & Answers
sent them two emails .no response. guess try a phone call
Edisons is usually good for this (i haven't had to change mine yet) but Jono & Johno are also worth a go. Bare in mind that MTM is just a brand name for a Chinese chainsaw that sold under many names, but the saw its self is very generic, so lot of other chinese parts fit...they are from the same factory usually. (Yukon,Baumr..etc) But models can vary regardless of the code on them. when contacting parts places a photo of the saw itself and a close up of the part usually goes a long way. Also send dimensions usually speeds up the process. Also remember that the saws are usual Brand name knock off as so Husqvarna and Stihl parts often fix too...but 10X the price
