We run 3 awesome saws the early one we had had serious issues but the new 2 are amazing. Not a match for the 661 IMO as we run that as well. For big take downs and light weight and easy of starting it is amazing.

Thanks by the sounds of what I'm hearing worth investing in then I've heard nothing but good reviews for the 500i for light weight and power

favourite saw of the lot, would be the 1 saw i'd keep if i had to get rid of the others

i use it with 20 or 25 bar, then 661 for anything bigger

have just put on a full wrap and a straight shot muffler

Do you really see a big difference between the 550i and the 661 then

I’m using one on a 28” and I’ve barely picked up a bigger saw in months

I properly hate having to pull the 66 up a tree nowadays.
