The economy is bad and I needed to replace my STIHL. Picked up this product regardless of the word of mouth of how shotty it is. Well, I can say I'm honestly amazed. This thing started no problem, cut through a nice sized hickory with ease. If you know your woods, hickory is quite a hard wood and requires a sharpener handy. This chainsaw didn't bog at all. The only thing that has me iffy on this product is the bar seems a bit thin which appears it may cause a problem if you catch a pinch. ((may be easy to bend the bar)). I'm not sure if that's just the way things are made these days or just this particular brand. ((stihl 18" was wider and longer if that makes sense not to mention thicker)). But, replacement bars are dirt cheap compared to other brands. Other than that I'd recommend it.
