A ported 660 is my "when I grow up I'm gonna get one saw" But I bet compared to a Dolmar "it's a real dog".......................(just kiding)
Thats funny right there!
I don't know, that 660 looks like a dog to me......a junk yard dog. Stihl guys don't get your panties in a bunch the reference to a dog in this case is meant as a compliment.
I once owned a 029 Stihl & ran it till it died. At the time I thought it a fine saw....
But a 5100s will OWN it hands down. The Dolmar is, if you just go by the manufacturers figures, is 1.8 lbs lighter & produces the same hp, but with higher chain speed.
To really understand how big a difference 1.8 lbs makes you'd have to run both saws for 4-5 hrs or more, then you really see the full benefit of the lighter pro saw. Further the anti vibe on the Dolmar is just a bit better as well. You get what you pay for & the reason Dolmar is offering more for the $$ spent is simply due to the fact that Dolmar is trying to take a greater share of the market. The prices Dolmar is selling their saws for now is temporary IMO, which is supported by the fact you can buy the Dolmar at a lower price right now in the US than you can in Germany where they are much better known.
What Dolmar needs most of all now is a greater number of GOOD dealers in the US.
