Its powerful, but it goes through a tank of gas fairly quick. The chain is nice but the stock bar takes an odd chain size. Overall really good buy, good vibration reduction.

The best saw I have owned. I have been through a few Stihl's with bigger cc's and couple smaller than this saw. Had a Husqvarna that was about the same size. The others are not bad but for overall power to weight, and easy to operate, I highly recommend this German built Dolmar / Makita. Out of the box I used this saw to cut through a very heavy oak that was around 16 to 18 inches round. It went through it like butter. Started with a single pull every time. It even seemed quieter than the others. I forgot to put the ear plugs in. I went with an 18 over 20 inch bar. I have had everything from 16 to 24 inch bars. The 18 seems to be just right, it’s easier to manipulate.
