I ran my stock for a year, cutting up to 32" oak with a 20" bar. It did very well!I modded my 357 also, and it cuts real well for it's size. Pound for pound, consideriing the engine size, it's impressive. I use it in the middle of the tree for burning thru the bigger limbs fast. Makes short work of cutting up a fallen oak.
Then got the porting bug, and have just about ported everything. :msp_smile:
