I've ordered quite a bit from Zoro, and have zero complaints with them. In fact, I've nothing but good things to say. That said, I've not ordered any saws from them, but have noticed what you mention, Kurt. Makes no sense to me, neither.

By the way, they've got 25% off on orders over $300.00, for today only. Ends at midnight. I don't recollect the code to use, though. Perhaps Steve will know.

 Code for 25% off is BIGGEST.  I got a CS590 shipped to my door for $302 ( 30% off that day) about a month ago, sold it to a friend for $350 after I tuned it and opened up the muff.  This one came lean on the high, 1/2 turn open bouncing against the limiter.    Steve

Yep, that's the elusive piker hole.

I wonder if the saw is creating steam from wet wood i had that happen dropping a rotting maple with my CS520

After six hours of cutting have you sharpened your chain? Dull chain will run hot and smoke no matter how much oil is flowing.

Much of the heat is to go out of the cut with the wood chips.

A dull chain will just rub on the wood and make the chain hot.

Glad you sharpened your chain.  Didn't read everything before my other response

I'm having a similar issue...and I've tried sharpening the blade a couple of times, just can't seem to get a handle on this one for some reason.  I do fine with my 16" CS346, but I'm having difficulty sharpening this 20".   I have a concern with the blade getting loose all the time after just a few minutes of cutting.

Check your raker height. They should be .025" below the cutter height. That was some of the heat goes out with the chips
