    Great on my back.
    I initially wanted to purchase a TS 700, but my Stihl dealer did not have one in stock. I needed a cut off saw asap. to finish a raised patio project. My other Brand cut off saw's carb. finally gave up after years of reliable service. At first, I thought I made a mistake purchasing a less powerful saw. To my surprise this saw starts right up, is light as a feather and cuts segmental retaining wall blocks and pavers like a champ.

    Very nice saw
    Im a 20 year mason contractor and have used Stihl saws for ever. This saw performs very well. A couple nit picks about the saw though, to compliment an already great saw. The start mechanism is clunky on this generation. It is hard to tell if the throttle is on or not when setting the switch. I really like the choke, although the smoothness of the lever could be greatly improved. It is to rigid IMO. I would also like to have a definitive choke ON choke OFF. I am writing it on the machine with ... read more marker for my guys. Were not engineers, so which way does what? It is easy to flood these machines if people get the choke "wrong". The stock pull cord is too short. I almost ripped the machine in half when first starting my new saw. The hose attachment rides low to the ground and I have already noticed it could be taking abuse. I like how high the blade sits at a resting position as compared to my old trusty TS400. As compared to the TS 400 the distance from the two hand grip positions has been shortened. I prefer the TS400 gripping positions, although im sure I wont notice in a matter of days. I have been looking at the spring that is mounted on the sides and question its durability. I mentioned to the salesman that it probably wont make it a year. The people who use these tools are animals. Switches that don't move smoothly will get snapped off, pull cords that are short will get ripped apart and springs that are mounted to the outside could possibly get knocked off. Don't get me wrong, I love this saw, just some areas I would like to see an improvement :)

    I fell for peer pressure.
    Everyone kept talking about the TS 420. I couldn't help it. I bought one right away. The description is accurate. All the other cut-off machines I've used I can easily compare to this one. I think I might get a second TS 420 because of the esteem this one has already given me. As I leave this review to attend a gala I urge anyone else interested to get the super famous TS 420. It will change your life.

    Better than expect,
    We bought 2 extra batteries and a extra charger so we could cut continuously. Be sure to have extra blade as well, many stores do not carry a blade that will fit. In the process of buying another unit.

    Lightweight and great to operate
    Cuts great and very durable. Battery life is about 20 minutes and not a problem if you use the quick charge system.

    its time to come out with a saw for rhe brick layers
    I've been a bricklayer for 35 years an when I seen this saw I thought to myself it's about time that they came out with this saw that's light and manageable to 2000 a wall it is very impressive but they need another inch on a saw blade very impressed but it doesn't cut through a brick if that ever is done I would buy it in a minute matter of fact I know 10 bricklayers that would buy it right away start thinking about tand I guarantee it your sales would increase 50%he bricklayers
