    Well bobo, I have to say I am very happy so far, it is a very clean saw. I put gas and oil in it, five pulls latter it was running! Haven't had time to try and cut anything with it, but it does run! The hole looks lie a screw goes there, but doesn't appear to have ever had one in it?
    Thank you bobo!

    Bobo - You're treating yourself really well with the Dolmar 5100s! I've had one for a couple months now. I walk past the saws I used to like well. I'm glad I passed on the 353 I had my heart set on. Enjoy!

    I just ordered two 5100s Dolmars last nite. If I like them I just might buy a 7900 to try out. I'm still wondering about longivity on the Dolmars. Have a friend that was running a 5100s for about a year that likes the saw.

    Hi -

    The Dolmar I ran in the mid80's is still fierce! They have a fine durability record. I suspect that is way Makita spent the money. I wish I had a decent excuse to buy a 7900!

    Enjoy!

    Not sure what you are talking about Roo, that saw is awsome!!!!!! I got to run it tonight, man that thing is mean!!! I did some research and the best price I could find was $425 for the saw with a case and two chains. So I guess I must have done awsome for getting that for $200!!! Thank you agian bobo, what a great deal!!!! That thing runs circles around my Wild thing!!! I will have to change my signature and avatar now, to represent a "real saw" now!! Man, bring on the wood!!!!!!!!!
    Another question, know now what a 3120 is, I have been given the oppertunity to buy one, $500 or so, I know it is way too much saw for me, but man would it look cool!!! I was told it runs great and all is well with the saw, is tat a decent buy?

    Yogi does that mean that the wild thing is going to give up the crow and get fitted for a tiara?

    Sorry... I just noticed the typo in my post.

    I meant to say give up the crown. Maybe subliminaly I meant eat crow...

    Well, I had to get a new chain, it was very dull, then I cut about a cord and a half this weekend, the saw ran great, I didn't!!!! I ended up with the flu, so I moved real slow. That thing rips!!!! I did find I couldn't push it real hard, but it cut like crazy!!! Very happy with that deal bobo, thank you again for that saw!!
    Then that othr saw you were talking about the 732? or whatever it was, still want to sell it? My buddy said I had no buisness with 3120, even just to have laying around the garage, so I guess I will have to pass on that deal :(

    Yogi that was a 372 that I might sell. The 3120 isn't the saw for you.
