    But, as you have apparently already figured out, they are good saws.

    I think that Stihl is still there only because they forgot to put the word "chainsaw" anywhere in the ad.

    I never go out without both my saws. Too many bad things can go wrong and then your stuck not getting work done. My little Stihl had a carb fail on it while out cutting one day, the work would have stopped if not for the other saw. If one is good, then more is better.

    Same here. When one fails or gets pinched in a cut, you always have the other to bail you out. I also take a small top-handle saw with me, not as a third for backup, but so that I don't need to use a heavy saw for the light work.

    I have been doing the same. Recently, while cutting some storm downed oak, I was on the last (and biggest)length. Having made all my first cuts and rolled the log, I couldn't get either of my bucking saws to start.!!!
    After 10 minutes of yanking on ropes, I grabbed the 009L, fired it up and finished the job. I was surprised at how powerful it is. I've since figured out the cold start / hot start / warm start idiosyncrasies of the Redmax. Damn CARB!

    Sometimes even 2 saws aren't enough. ;)

    My backup saws have backups.

    It was reposted to day, at $180. How can you resist?
