    The sad thing is that I know some folks who would actually buy this thing and try to use it.

    It definitely needs a pair of big falling dawgs to deal with all that torque when bucking... and it needs an oiler. ;)

    No, these are actually the latest in Chicom crap: The Tsing Tao chainsaw. They pass the new EPA requirements and can be legally imported into the USA!
    I am not sure about the increase in methane emissions though!

    I think that they will be imported with the Forester label and sold on Ebay.

    Is that a skip chain? What is the drive ratio? Can I get different sprockets? There is no orange on it, won't cut.

    Don't knock the "green" tools. I happen to own the finish carpenter's version. Blade guard was removed to lighten it up. It is very quiet as advertised.
