    A little beauty and can not wait to get out and get it to work!

  2. Sikander Khan (verified owner)

    Great saw! Made short work of the trees we had to sort out and didn’t miss a beat. Was hard to start first time but after that it fires up every time without any hassle. It has lots of power and goes through big stuff with ease. Nocks socks off the cheapo ones I’ve used before and feels well made and good quality
    Service from Radmore and Tucker was great with next day delivery on time and hassle free.
    Very pleased

    I work with a professional Stihl model MS 261C and to be honest, I find this is absolutely brilliant.
    Definitely recommend.
