I've had mine for well more than a decade and it cuts plenty of firewood, deadfall and even some construction timbers.
Get a decent rip chain and run it dry of fuel when you're not using it.

slainer wrote:Yea Mark, i agree with you on used saw are usually worn out. Most of the used saw I see on Craigs List look well worn for $200 or lightly used $250 but a brand new saw for $299 plus tax. Maybe a lager saw would be a better deal used as they go for more money to begin with.
Mark, what has me confused is the brochure they list two pitches, 3/8 for the 9 tooth bar and .325 for the 11 tooth bar, I amuse you have the latter bar on your saw? I really would like to start off fresh with a good saw, chain/bar and keep them all maintained and sharpened properly.
