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.
Purchased in July 2018 for $169.00.
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.
It worth watching a few of the Utube videos regarding 2 stroke mixing for these MTM saw's The manual says 25:1 mix but that smokes a lot, 40:1 with good quality oil gives a bit my grunt and no smoke.(tip I picked up from the tube vid's)
The initial setup was a bit fiddly. The online manual isn't the greatest help. I went with the 72sx as opposed to the 62 as it has a proper air filter and a bit more power. mine has the 22" blade. Just as a general observation although most of the plastic seems solid enough, there are some bits like the choke handle that looks flimsy (time will tell)
Over all after cutting through a trailer load of wood cannot really fault it, so happy [I will be back to update after I have had it for a bit longer and a few more trailers of wood]
