What I can't understand is why more people don't use them?MS I still grin when I read about you using that 700 on the job thats really cool
What are ya setting them with Ed?

Really simple nothing to it put it over the raker and file it till it stops cutting move and repeat. I find on stihl chain the soft setting is a little hungry unless in Really Reeeally soft wood and big grunt eg young pine 20 inch bar and an 850 on the end of it
I mean I'm definitely not rolling in money but if you can find a good running ProMac700 for a couple bills you could do just about any kind of work with it.
I have a few saws in my small collection that are older and some newer and I use the saws I like and when felling a decent size tree the 700 is well suited for the job.
Lately I've been using the 800 and a hopped up 034 I built, and it's taking me some time to get the hang of them . The 800 is deceptively fast and I've damn near cut through 2 hinges, but I'll keep at it.
I've got a few favorites and I try to get them in my work rotation (even fire wood duty) because honestly for me its no fun if you don't get to play with them.
