I bought this model new for the 2008 season and have been very pleased since. My saw came with a 20" bar, and I know you could do some professional-type work with that length bar. I sawed up 2 dying dogwoods from my yard in the late summer. If you don't already know, dogwood is one of the hardest woods on earth - almost 2x harder than oak. This Husky cut right through both trees without any hesitation. If cutting in low-light (not that I would), it's been said that cutting dogwood may cause sparks!! Anyway, I was a little skeptical of the "tool-less" chain tensioning system before I bought it. However, I have had zero problems out of it, and it is extremely handy in the field. All you need is a bottle of chain oil and a bottle of fuel mix, and you can leave the truck for a whole day if you'd like - no need to carry a skrench! The visible fuel tank is handy too. I recommend this saw!!
