Picked up one of these little gems for smaller branch cutting. The Farm Boss at 13 pounds wears out my back on small stuff. This one is easy to start and at 7 pounds is a featherweight. Should blow through the small stuff and not exhaust me in the process. With case, 12" bar, file, synthetic oil, extra chain...under $400. And if you need to climb into a tree for some limbing, one handed operation is a plus.
