Well I got some wood to cut so I got the 044 out for the first time. It worked great. Cut fast and put a smile on me from ear to ear. It made my old saw seam like a hand saw. I took a few pics. The pic with the saw in the log is 26" across. Made the 24" bar work. So far I'm very happy. It does drink the gas and oil. The oiler is turned down all the way and it still went through a tank of oil befor the gas ran out. I think I need some thicker oil then the bar and chain oil I got at meijer.
