    images.jpeg.jpg Hopefully they saw Joe's 730 hybrid and said " we really should have made the 600 series 70+cc from the start".

    Its kind of disappointing that it looks like a 572.

    And here I always thought chain saws were for cutting timber, fire wood and other wood cutting dutys.
    I never knew I should take mine to a beauty shop for a complete make over for some beauty contest.

    I like that saw and would even pay money for one.
    If it is any where thr saw my CS 400 is it will be a great fire wood saw.

    :D Al

    That would be a great looking saw if it didn’t have that ugly black blob on the side of it.

    And ya, machines should look good as well as be good.

    The 4510 has a similar blob on it...

    If that is the Case why do people buy those butt ugly orange and white saws for working when the white after a bit looks like a crap trap? I am not talking about people who cut a few face cords of fire wood I am talking about people that cut hundreds of full cord of wood a year.

    Also when your cutting your supposed to be watching what your doing not looking at the saws recoil.

    Now I admit I would not pay extra money for a saw painted JD green and yellow.

    :D Al

    I hope they do a stripped down version similar to the 590 verses the 620. It would be epic if they could price it at $600. That would be 50% more than a 590. It would be almost half the price of a 462
