Look like 2 good cutting 60cc firewood cutting saws.  Thanks for comparison.

6100 is faster but the 620 is still a fun saw to run. The more i run it the more i like it.

Was same type chain run on both and new out of box or touched up?  The 6100 appeared to be cutting so much better in the cut.

Which felt like it had more torque in cut?  betting 6100 with reed

here you go. compare away on these 2 videos. different chain but sharpened to the same angles and same cutter length. actually sharpened one side of both chains without touching the grinder....dressed the wheel and went back around both chains then switched to the other side and repeated that process. both chains are A1LM.

feeling was that the dolly was faster by me and the guy taking the video but didnt bother to time the cuts.

Thanks for comparison. For 2 sec slower ill go with the echo and keep the extra 300$ in my pocket.  ;D
I would like to see them both with rs and MM on both.

didnt make it clear. this is a stock 6100 and stock 620. 4-6 tanks thru the echo and i think the dolly is on tank #2. the dolly is $100 cheaper than the echo and 2 seconds faster. Thats a win win in my book.

Stock for Stock one is probably way more restricted than the other From the factory. Thats all im saying

What $300 are you going to keep? Are you referring to the price of porting?I think the purchase price of the Echo is somewhat higher than the purchase price of the Dolmar.

I would go with echo never had a dolmar, and don't ever really plan on it,,,(not being snooty) its just my p.o.v.
My climbing saw is a stihl but it does ok, other then that i have only owned husky or echo. And the build quality on the echo's are just hard to beat IMO. But, i have seen now where the prices are starting to come up with the husky , and stihl's.

I have the 6100, it is a very solid well built machine.  But if someone gave me the echo 620 I would keep it. Might make it hard to decide which one to use.

Was wondering about this info yesterday how it compared to 620. Felt the 6100 was in the 590 620 class.
