Nice saw but could use some improvements
Easy to assemble out of box. Took a LOT to get it to fire initially, did not want to draw fuel. Ended up putting a little fuel mix and a shot of starting fluid in to get it started. Must of pulled it 100 times before that. Not a fan of the decompression system for starting either. Really needs a lever/knob like the stihl/husqvarna . Otherwise seems to have a lot of power so hopefullt it was just the initial start that was so hard. Time will tell how it compares to my stihl ms261. Hopeful as prce was good.
