    is this power rating correct for the dcs510?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Makita-DCS510-1...ryZ20538QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    says 3.5 kw and 4.7 bhp... wrong specs? Also specs show 54 cc.?


    is there some european conversion i am missing? Or is this the most powerful 50cc saw ever created? Or did they just put dcs6401 power rating on accident? Therefore I may have answered my own question.

    The ps 5100 is 2.8 kw and 3.9 bhp, I thought they were the same saw? or is it the ps510 the same (2.4/3.3)? Either way isn't the above link is high?

    I know I will get, "its because of ________ you knucklehead" but i am still curious.

    Either way It looks like I spent too much for a homeowner class saw. Should have found AS before I bought!

    The Dolmar/Makita 510 is 49.9cc, 2.4kw/3.2hp. That price is steep, too, but it's a good saw.


    EDIT: I see it has free shipping, which would account for the higher price.
