I have only run the 125 and it never ceases to amaze me with its torque.I have an 088 and a sp125 and these are the differences I found. The Stihl hits higher rpms, but is easier to stall.
That's normal with the more modern sawsThe Stihl has a better anti-vibe than the Mac hands down.
I have buried a 5 footer on my 125 and it just keeps throwing chips. It can be stalled, as ANY (stock) saw can, and it shore is fun trying to find its limits.However. The mac will pull a 4 foot bar just as well or maybe a little better than the 088.
Do you mean the auto oiler or with by using the auxillary oiler?The Mac also has a superior oilier system.
I clean the filter bw every tank on my 125. It's not much of a filter. I guess that is a testament to just what these saws can withstandAir filtration is a lot better on the Stihl.
That is to say about as much as a holstein calf.They both weigh about the same.
I find any reason I can just to listen to it run.Last but not least, the sp125 sounds awesome!
The 084 that I have is about the same as the 3120. The only 125 I ever ran was like holding a Yamaha Thumper in your hands. Lots and lots of torque, scary, but what a rush.
