Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excelent for medium-duty DIY use
This 45.7 cc, 2.8 hp chainsaw comes with a 20" bar capable of handling all the medium-duty jobs you might come up with. Apart from regular trimming, pruning, and firewood cutting, it will also easily cut up to 20" wide trees. It's perfectly suitable for non-professional household and rural work.
Pro Very good value for money
It boasts plenty of premium features for its price tag. The X-Torq technology it uses helps make the unit efficient and reduces fuel consumption. The inertia-activated chain brake automatically detects the dangerous kickbacks and stops the chain. Finally, the spring-based vibration dampers minimize operator's muscle fatigue.
Pro Feels very solid
This chainsaw is built from premium-quality plastics, composite materials, and very tough metals. It feels sturdy and professional.
Pro Wide range of compatible bar lengths
You can use pretty much any available bar length between 13" and 20". This greatly increases the versatility of the saw.
Con Bad for heavy jobs
The 20" bar length limits this saw to cut only up to 1.5 ft wide trees. Cutting bigger trees would require you to do complicated parallel cuts, which are not recommended for amateurs.
