Engine Displacement   47.9 cc
Weight   10.1 lbs

Probably the most underrated 3 cube saw out there.

It even has a adjustable oiler. Doesn't look or feel cheap either.
Weight and feel compared to the 026?
Feels exactly like my 026. (weight wise) This one has a 20'' bar &.325 chain. I think 16'' would be better though.
