Very good value
The weakness in the saw is the recoil starter, otherwise the saw is very good and reliable. I have purchased 4 for myself(2) and a others and the only problem is the recoil starter mechanism which is weak. My supplier is Crazy Sales at about $100 to about $140 depending upon the specials. They are very good with their guarantee and have replaced the starter with no haggling. However, I needed yet another for another saw and they can be purchased on-line for $35 from Global Sales. I have purchased a replacement + a spare. Even having to replace the starters, I am still way ahead financially when compared with the "big name" saws which I have owned previously. The equivalent saw in the 2 major brands costs $700 - $900 whilst neither of mine has cost me more than $150 on average. I cut about 8 tonne of hardwood each year.
