The Timber bear is on her final legs so to speak so it is time to get a new saw. I have been reading the forums and talking with my local saw dealer that carries both Stihl and Dolmar I have narrowed it down to a Stihl 290 or Dolmar 5100. Is there anything that I should be aware of before I put down my hard earned cash? I am leaning heavily towards the Dolmar and I want to make sure I am making a good decision on a saw that will last me many years. I do know that I will be running an 18" Bar since all I cut is beetle killed lodge pole and some smaller fir and Pondeosa pines.
