Magnum, I believe I have read that you have quite a few Dolmars, including a 6400. How does this saw compare to the 6400?

I have a couple 7900's they are obviously more powerful than the 6800.

The 6400 has very generous open porting and they run pretty good. I believe that the 6400/7900 is a little heavier than the 6000/6800.

The porting in the 6800 is with the lower transfers (a square window) in the lower cylinder sidewall with a windowed piston. The 116Si/120Si Dolmars are almost identical to the 6000i/6800i except for the chain cover.

I don't think there are much doubt that those are pretty much the same saws!  ;D

Yes, The 6800 has a EPA inertia brake design instead of one just activated by the handle.

The old 116Si / 120Si & 6000i / 6800i certainly are likable chainsaws in the woods.

If you start counting up statistics of dimension, weight, balance, rpm, and power, they will not add up like a modern day chainsaw but they are still nice to use in the woods.

New factory parts are getting scarce though.

This is my 6800 with Nick from the Cincinnati area running it at a GTG. It warmed up in the second cut.

......

I fail to see the connection between the chain brake and the EPA, sounds more like ANSI related?  ???

You're probably right for it is not emissions related but a safety matter?

Government bureaucrats anyway!
