    Eye literalLEE dew crap 2 lbs.
    My wife a year back found some crazy diet she wanted to go on before she had a show in Vegas and eye told her eye wood support her by going on it 2. Well, we had to weigh ourselves every morning and record said weight and one morning right after weighing in ,,felt the urge. So eye "went IN" (as my wife calls it). When eye came back out my wife asked if eye had weighed in and eye said yes. She said she didn't see me get on the scale and didn't believe what eye had wrote down for my recorded weight so eye jumped back on the scale and was 2lbs less than b4 "going IN"!
    SO in all reality 2 lbs reaLEE ain't crap,,, OR maybe it is!
    Glad eye could "light'n" the mood with that story! Sum of U were reaLEE makin' work outta 2 lbs.

    I was wondering why you hadn't been IDing .. maybe after a break it will be different. The 2lb's of crap should be no surprise with those 2lb sandwiches for lunch. :shut:
    I prefer the Stihl saws as well but the newer models also have alot of plastic , that being said if money was no object I would buy a Stihl every time.
    Danno please no pics of you in the prom dress with or without a saw

    Everything you've said up to this point has been right on but this comment is just silly. What is plastic on a Makita/Dolmar that isn't also plastic on a Stihl? Granted, the 6400/1 is not the shining star in their lineup but it is a saw that will still get the job done and last a lifetime.

    I stopped into see a Dolmar dealer down the road from me and while he has a 7901 he also has and likes his 6400 and set me up with a full chisel chain and that thing really makes quick work of some big logs.
