This professional chainsaw is perfectly suitable for extra-heavy-duty applications, such as cutting up to six-feet wide trees. It is designed to be useable even in harsh environments. However, this is a serious investment, as both the tool and its maintenance are quite costly.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Built to last
The body of the saw is built using premium-quality plastics and the large plastics parts are held together by high-quality screws. There are virtually no loose or insecure parts, which means it’s tough enough to handle serious job site abuse. Additionally, the crankcase is made from high-quality magnesium, which is sturdy, lightweight, and thus expensive, reserved only for premium products.
Pro Excellent for heavy-duty use
When it comes to raw cutting power, this might be the most powerful chainsaw available on the market. Its massive 118.8 cc engine can run a large 42" bar chain at the stunning speed of 65.9 ft/s, delivering up to 8.3 hp of power to the workpiece. The tool is perfect for extra-heavy-duty applications, such as cutting trees with up to 6 ft diameter.
Pro Good safety features
This chainsaw has all the essential safety features, such as a lever chain brake and a trigger lock. Furthermore, it has an inertia-activated chain brake, which instantaneously stops the chain in the event of an unexpected kickback.
Pro Supports large bars
Even though according to the official datasheet the maximum supported bar length for this tool is 42", this chainsaw is known for handling up to 60" long cutting bars.
Pro Adjustable chain oiler
You can adjust the chain oiler according to each job's needs and weather conditions. This is important for professional applications, where the tool is being pushed to its limits.
The saw weighs 22.9 pounds, not including fuel, a bar, or a chain, which, combined, can double the total weight. You’ll need a lot of physical strength to run this tool.
Con High fuel consumption
According to the datasheet, this saw consumes 570 g/KWh. Since the maximum power of the unit is 6196 W, the 2.64 US pint fuel tank is expected to last only about 20 minutes. This means you will need extra fuel while working this chainsaw.
Con Bar and chain not included
This chainsaw doesn't come with a bar and chain included, meaning you will have to buy them separately.
