    That's a box store saw, sold at Menard's. Nothing special, I'm sure, but I have no experience with them and don't know anybody who has one.

    They used to be Olympyk brand. They painted some of them john deere green. Some of them are decent.

    They were decent saws that fell victim to Deere's half-hearted last-ditch run at handheld power equipment.

    We have an Efco dealer here in town, he's also a Husqvarna and Dolmar dealer so I'm sure he doesn't sell many of the Efcos.

    EFCO is Italian and makes nice saws. Some are pro-level, others mid-level, and the one you linked to is a homeowner-type saw. You get what you expect at each level, nothing more but nothing less. The asking price for the CL saw is out of line by at least $75.

    I once had an EFCO grass/weed trimmer that was nothing but a PITA. I'd never buy anything else made by them.
