bump! any opinions both saws are pretty closely matched for specs the dealer i am buying from pushes both products. i like the smaller shindi i was running before we also have 5 of them on our forestry truck at the fire department. i know a couple of guys with the dolmars and they like them. just wondering if any one has likes or dislikes on either saw.

both good products and a lot will depend on dealer support! Personally I would go Dolmar because of better power and torque than virtually all other competitors!
