Year or 2 ago there was a Efco 152 (old model 5200) used commercially last I heard had 1500 tanks run through it. Only normal maintenance.  952/152-956/156-962/162 are Efco's best IMO.

Got to agree. Bought a green JD CS-56 [956/156] beginning of July 2009 after JD discontinued the EFCO saws. Posted this photo the first day on Magnus' site. It has since passed 100 full cord of ash, maple and cherry. It developed a split in the air filter cover that I fixed with aluminum tape and it has consumed a chain catcher. Other than the typical bar and chains that just plain wore out, it hasn't had any more than a cleaning each week. Still on the original plug.
