    A powerful 1800W power to weight ratio! A powerful 45cc engine, big enough to do any job!

    What a hoot!

    It doesn't mention warranty.

    They might as well give you 5 year commercial warranty, because they don't tell you who made it, either.

    "45cc High performance engine able to deliver 1800W power to weight ratio"
    What in the world does that mean, 1800w power to weight ratio.:confused:

    nothing

    It's without meaning, therefore they cannot be held liable for failure to meet the standard.

    It probably means 1800 watts power equivalent, which would be a bit more dangerous than your average hair dryer.

    Double aggrivating. I just ranted out with paragraph and laptop failed and lost it, now I will type it again.:censored:
    I cant believe they cah do that. There is a car dealer here that was advertising cars for "dead cost". Abuddy of mine knew a salesman there and called him on it. He said it was BS ,no such term in car sales.It was something marketing came up with. I dont know who are bigger Aholes, the marketers that come up with that S&%t or the people that believe it. :angrysoapbox:

    I refer to them as "Weasel Words" or "Salesman Talk" ment to excite or confuse the customer. I make it a point not to talk to or do business with such knuckle heads.

    That 1800W thing, power to weight ratio? That really got me, I think my girlfriends hairdryer is about 1800W, with a better p/w ratio!

    Check his other auctions.
    How can 1 seller have 2 different locations?
    I call scammer........
    1800watts would be 1.8KW a legitimate power rating but not a ratio.

    Anybody see the Powerhorse saws in the new northern tool catalog? They look about on par with the blue max crap.

    Take a look at this picture, notice anything?

    My first thought was that saw looks similar to the Powerhouse sold in the Northern tool catalog, probably just under a different name. More than likely a POS just like those Efco saws that Northern sells.....nobody has heard of them.

    Probably because either:

    A. The handle is so flimsy he needs the chain brake for extra support.

    B. The chain brake fell off and he's holding it there so it doesn't hit the chain.

    Now com'on fella's, he's just being a responsable professional holding that brake back so he can keep an eye on what's giong on in front of the saw because he's not running any dogs.

    It's one of those rubberized chains they use in horror movies, because it doesn't have enough power to pull a real chain.

    It wouldn't do any good for them to tell you the name of the manufacturer.... you couldn't pronounce it anyway. I'm sure it looks like a lot like l#) <^! :laugh:

    I call it saleez (say it fast) :laugh:
