    Ya that is a nice lil' light saw. But Im not crazy about the carb in the back it cramps your hand after alot or use. I run huskys, 334 and 338 there comfie and lots of power. Tell us how you like it too!

    I love those little top handle saws, I have the Echo.
    I'm curious why you went with a top handle, most people don't.

    I picked this saw b/c it was light and not very expensive.
    $270 for heavy duty professional grade saw it a good deal for me.

    I was looking at the MS 260 Pro. It was too heavy and the price was $400. I don't want to pay that much for what i needed.

    I did some climbing and cutting with it for two hours today. I was very very happy with it.

    I don't know how big and tall most of you are, but me, am only 5'8" and 150lbs,
    anything heavier than this is just add more work for myself.

    Yeah, those top handles are for climbers but, I rented a saw and love the way it feels so I bought one.
