The best "reasonably priced chain" is the Oregon 91VXL056G. This is not a low kickback chain. Be careful.

After reading all the research and reading reviews i decided on this chainsaw. I had trouble from the start. The chain keeps falling off, I'm constantly adjusting chainsaw tension. I've been thru 5 chains in less then thirty days because when the chain slips off it ends up bending some of the links. Also had damage to the bar. If I could return it I would...Side note I also have a Makita DCS 6901 (Blue) that I have used for over 6 years and never had an issue with it.

Gone through 5-10 gallons of gas. It runs like a dream and is easy to very easy to start with the spring assisted starter. Negatives -I've found the o-ring around sealing the carb throat to the air filter becomes sloppy very quickly (potentially ethanol shrinking?). I've solved this buy using gear grease in this area to trap particulates from making it into the carb. -Comes with spur type sprocket instead of rim This saw is a professional quality saw, built in Germany with a magnesium case. I'm not sure what Dusty is going on about because this chainsaw is built by the same people in the same plant that the Dolmers were made in Germany. One person builds a saw start to finish. The price point of this saw cannot be matched by Stihl with the ms241 or the Husky 543xp, both of which are several hundred more than this product. Advantages of those products over the Makita are dealer network, and the Stihl has m-tronic which automatically tunes the carb in real time. At the end of the day if you don't know how to properly maintain and adjust a chainsaw the quality of the product is negligible, and shouldn't warrant a low rating because of user error.

It is high quality Makita/Dolmar equipment, even if made/assembled in China -- the same quality control standards are in place regardless of manufacturing facility location. It starts easily, handles very well, and the spring anti-vibe mechanism is superb. I am very pleased with the control lever - choke, run, stop/off, lock. It is a very effective design, and the most well made of any of the saws that I tried in this price range (Echo, Stihl, Husqvarna). The stock Dolmar branded chain is an Oregon 91px series loop, and it cuts well and smoothly. The chain did require several tightenings during break in, as this is normal. The oiler also required adjustment to get the right flow, and this is likely due to the type/brand of oil in use (off brand local hardware store stuff). Overall, a high quality, well made piece of engineering!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw I have ran many different saws and this one ranks up with the best. Built for makita by dolmar, it is a quality saw with rugged features. Don't let the size fool you, it is defiantly more powerful than other saws it's size. Starts easy as well. What i really like about this saw is the dogs that allow you to spike it into larger pieces of wood for leverage. Many saws this size do mot have this feature. Shipping from home Depot was great.
