    that's high praise coming from someone knowledgeable.
    So it seemed to cut fine (as fast?) and it lasted ten hours cutting wood before it started to dull?
    Wow. Did the chips look "normal"?

    I think the catch on mine was I had a new oregon powernow chainsaw, 3 batteries and charger in the box.

    Chain and sharper I think I could have kept, but wasnt needed so I sent it back.
