I have had this saw for about 4 months now and have dropped probably about 50 trees and cut avout 15 cords of wood. I bought it to replace a husky 266xp.
Power- i run it with a 18” or 24” it has no trouble running either with a full comp sthil/ oregon full comp 3/8-.50 pro chain and has a good power band. i have buried the 24” bar in oak and it just goes.
ergonomics- it is the smoothest running saw i have owned. you can definatly tell the vibrations transmited to the grips are less then most saws and its weight isnt bad either its about 14lbs my only complaint is the center of gravity is a little off with 24” bar so its nose heavy it really is only a problem when carrying it with the middle handle.
duribilty- Its a sthil do i need to say anything!!! I have run it alot and havent had a single problem i also broke it in and run good fuel and mix.
price – 920 for powerhead and 1025 for power head ,18” &24” bars ,2chains for each bar and 4 extra bar nuts
overall i would recomend it to anyone that needs a saw that can run 24” all day but over kill for most
