Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy Strong!! I've had this for about 3 months and although I only have a couple tanks through it I am very happy. I bought it mostly for brush clearing on my 7 acres that has been neglected any trimming for 5-6 years and has tons of 1 to two inch brush to remove. Hence the saw blade I can use my chainsaw sharpener on and Wow! I've cut 3" saplings with this... it didn't break any speed records but the blade wasn't fresh and I'd do it again before getting a different tool... A backsaver that still will easily cut brush under mower depth.Now I don't have the handlebar setup as I have a lot of slope on the property and I read that it's counterproductive for the harness on any kind of incline. I use the single point sling and that makes it easy to move from place to place, I can say the small leg brace the dealership made me buy with the blade is ESSENTIAL!! You will need to brace this steadily on your leg before making contact with anything over, say a 1/2 inch, at about a 2 o'clock position. And KEEP PEOPLE AND PETS AWAY!! I had it buck, granted when i was tired, and the head went about 4 feet so be careful!This is an amazingly fast and strong tool and I've had no problems with starting, reliability, or function. I do a lot of research when I buy tools and I'm still looking for somewhere that says a Stihl tool breaks after a few runs and a tank of gas. Save for the great big chainsaws and even those are rare. If you're thinking about it get it.
