Video review of the model
“One of the best Stihl chainsaws! Without exaggeration. The manufacturer has tried to put a maximum of technical talent and possibilities into the product. I think this chainsaw really deserves an award.
Advantages: the engine starts easily, the sprocket nuts are securely fixed thanks to the grooves, and as the manufacturer writes, no other chainsaw has such fastening nuts! The next plus is a lot of power, a fairly large fuel tank given the dimensions of the chainsaw.
Disadvantages: relatively expensive, although it depends on what you compare. Once you have invested money in such a chainsaw, you can not worry about the reliability of the tool.
