    lol I have ran it just enough to waste the cluth! (ran it for less than a min.) Thats how strong this thing is.....Never seen metal so blue in my life......Starts very easy they had to put a new clutch and housing, chain and bar on the beast for less than a min. run time....Cant wait to see if its right and milling video's soon. (if the issues are all work out)

    wrong gear drive.....and I check it and so did they the part# says its right but its NOT! I would guess its a 3/8 .050 instead of a .063 just a guesss though because the part # says its a .063 who knows they replace it all just haven't stuck into some wood yet.
    Fills right runing it with no load. Its being turn in on warranty work.

    I bet they are tired of hearing from me! They know how many saws I buy and there first ever 880. It should be right just cant believe how much damage that did so quick. Loos like someone dip the parts in translucent deep blue paint.

    Finding out quickly that after running a 880 makes the 460 a good limbing saw.
