Over All Good Saw For The Price
I've had mine for 4 years & no problems at all and I'm not a easy on my saws when I'm working... I do clean them up & tune them up when finished cutting.

Have not had to replace the bar only the chain after a season of cutting. Would be great in a 16" bar as more cutting power, but my 18" does all that I ask of it & way cheaper than my Echo CS400.
