Excellent Pro Chainsaw
I'm not one to write reviews but since you asked...here goes. My total chainsaw experience is a 20" Ryobi and an 18" Husqvarna 450. The Ryobi proved to be a piece of junk and broke with the second use. It was replaced by the manufacturer because they couldn't fix it. I then bought the Husq and it performed well - but I was very aware of its limitations - good for trimming branches and felling small trees but choked on anything bigger than 10-12" diameter. That said, I took down a... more

Not Too Happy
I bought this chainsaw because it is supposed "The Chainsaw" of all chainsaws. I have used it three, that is right... 3 times and it will not stay on after I cut some mesquite trees. After I cut down the tree, I let go of the throttle..... Chainsaw turns off.

I spend more time trying to turn it on......it is not even funny. My two middle fingers have blisters on the inner side. I will not touch any of the components because warranty may get void.

I will be contacting PED... more
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Expensive

Adalberto,
I apologize for the unit not performing as expected for your application. This may be due to an issue with the saw itself in which Dolmar may be able to troubleshoot over the phone with you or repair the unit under the 2 year manufacturer warranty. I would recommend reaching out to Dolmar directly for further assistance.

Once again I do apologize for this inconvenience. Thank you for taking the time to write and honest review, I hope you have a great day!

Great Saw!
I needed a larger saw to handle some storm damage around the property. I looked at the Stihl's & Husky's and then settled on the Dolmar because of it's reputation (and the lack of quality parts on the others). I've used it for a month and I know I made the right decision.

This thing rips and makes short work out of my fallen hardwoods. The vibration isolation on it is great as well. The only minor complaint is that you need to make sure the chain is very taught, all the time. Even a... more

Super Product
I was for many years a Stihl dealer. It wasn't till a little time later that we took on the Dolmar franchise. It was the best move we could have made. Super product in quality and performance. You will never go wrong with Dolmar products.

Love My Saw
I have had the saw for over a month, used it allot, and can't get over the power. I am getting my winter wood about 18 to 20 cord, as I have an outdoor furnace that I keep going about 9 months out of the year. I just love the saw.

Powerhouse Saw That Needs A Better Oiling System
I've used this saw about 10 times. It is very powerful and runs great. With the oiler on the highest setting, it puts out about 1/2 of the oil that other saws I've used put out. The oil passages are also easily plugged, and require a very thorough cleaning after 1/2 hour of cutting. The 2 guys I cut with use a Husky 60cc, and a Stihl 55cc. I can out cut both until the oiler plugs up and the chain starts to smoke. It's not a matter of a dull blade. My backup saw is a craftsman 50cc which... more

Derek,
Be sure you're using a quality bar & chain oil - not motor oil. If you're using the right oil and still experiencing problems, consider thinning it a bit. If the oil is thin and clean enough, it should make its way through the opening just right.

If all else fails, you can email Dolmar customer support at support@dolmarpowerproducts.com to find out what their recommendations are or if they can repair/replace the saw under warranty.

And don't hesitate to give us a call should you need more assistance from us. Thanks, and we appreciate you sharing your experience.

It's been too hot to saw yet.....hoping in the coming weeks to try out the saw. When it's in the 90's, it's just a little too hot to fire up the saw....Saw looks and feels great. Will report after we get it into the woods....

Great Saw
I've looked at every saw I could and I picked the Dolmar 6100. I feel it's the best bang for the buck. I hesitated for a long time before I bought one because I just had a hard time parting with the cash. When I found out they were gonna change to Makita, well, I just couldn't wait.

I am not a Makita fan by any means trying to get warranty work or parts is like trying to pull a hens tooth. So I definitely wanted one that was a Dolmar not Makita. I love it, lots of power, rpm ease of use.... more

2nd Dolmar Owner
Always been a fan of German quality... my first dolman was the 540... usually cut 10 cords of wood a year... 10 years later, she's finally lost a little power... so I upgraded to the commercial 61cc... cuts like a dream, easy start, love the bar oiler... no more puddles of oil in the shop!!

I plan on rebuilding my 540.. Buying from chain saw direct was easy, shipped very fast... Would use them again for my next purchase.. but the Dolmar 61 will probably last me the rest of my wood cutting... more
