Pros: incredible speed and power, great fuel economy
Cons: not for the beginning user
Over the period of 20 years myself and family members have owned a total of 6 jonsered chainsaws. I recently purchased the 2065 turbo. I do part-time trimming and tree cutting. I was hired to drop a very large maple tree that was about 2 feet from the customers house. The old jonsered saw that I own [625 II] could have done the job, but the trunk of the tree was 3 foot across at it's widest point. this would have seriously pushed the limit of this saw. I had been considering the purchase of a new saw for several years. I found the saw on sale and decided to make the purchase. The dealer went to great lengths to explain the difference in this saw from all others. The thing that sold me was the incredible rpm's that the turbo allowed it to turn. If you do any amount of cutting you know that rpm's will pull you thru the wood much quicker. When I started cutting the tree I was quickly impressed with how much faster I could cut the limbs. When I began to cut the main section of the tree, the saw really showed itself. I had the saw equipped with a 20in blade, with a full chisel chain. I could bury the complete length of the blade without a noticeable drop in rpm's. This is the only saw I have been able to do this with. The speed it cuts with is nothing short of incredible. I finished the job about 3 hours quicker than anticipated due to the speed of the saw. As a side note, the saw uses much less fuel than previous saws. Not only does this save money it saves time. I would not recommend this saw for the novice. It has way to much power to use as a beginner saw. There are several milder Jonsered saws for the beginner. I did allow a friend to use it that has little experience with large saws. After half a cut he set the saw down shaking and wouldn't use it again. This saw is a must for the serious wood-cutter. I give it my highest recommendation.
