Hi - I was shopping for a saw to replace the small Mac's that I had been using. They will be loaners, limbers now. I went with the 3/6 .050" 18" chain/bar combination. The saw seems to be very well made. Starts and runs well. Very light, strong. I like it. I've run plenty of Stihl's and Huskys. I had been leaning towards a Husky 353. For about $400 delivered I'm very happy. I'd recommend it to anyone. I'm cutting mostly Ash and Maple. ATB, Mike P Edited: SHOULD be in Gear!!
