    Farm Boss is a USA marketing term.

    That said, sometimes similar saws made for different countries come with different carbs, ignitions, or other minor variations, etc. The quality should be the same. Note that if you go to the trouble of trying to import a German made saw and end up with problems, you might have trouble with the warranty, or obtaining any parts that are different from the model sold in the USofA.
