My old (1983) Rancher bit the dust with a scored piston recently. Since I've always been meticulous about my fuel mix, it may have already had problems when I got it 3 years ago (it didn't run then). Anyway, the cost of repair was more than the saw was worth, so I decided to replace it. After much thought and discussion, I decided to buy a new saw rather than a rebuilt one. My local shop steered me towards the Redmax line, being a Redmax warranty service center helped the decision. I got the G5300 with a 20 inch bar, which, when compared side by side, bears a striking resemblance to a Husqvarna 353. It is the only saw in their line that does not have the Redmax Strato engine, and one of two with the characteristic cylinder cover clips that Husqvarna uses. The dealer also tells me that the part numbers are the same (Husqvarna bought Redmax in 2007). Lifetime warranty on the electronics, 2 years on everything else. Haven't had a chance to test it yet, we'll see how it performs.
