  1. Bought yesterday, with the 12" bar a single 200 (4AH) battery and quickest charger. Wow, what a beautiful saw! Lighter than I expected, just so nice to use. Picked it up and went straight to work, removing a sycamore from a roadside wall. Didn't bother with ear defenders, didn't need them. The saw feels extremely controllable, no gyroscopic effect except for a very slight vertical nose lift. Did the sycamore down to about fifteen feet, and topped a small cypress, still had three lights on the battery. It does demand mindfulness as the saw could potentially un-break itself on branches, so was hyper-aware of break and throttle position when picking it up. The torque, relatively slow chain speed, quietness, complete lack of vibration etc. made the working experience more "studied" - more deliberate, I would say. Easy and instant communication with groundie was a blessing. I find I'm developing a kind of pseudo-fetish for the 160t, I keep going to the shed just to pick up the saw and hold it, marvelling at the design and technology. Would recommend.

    Efco MT2600

    Hi Gents Any of you had any experience with Efco saws ? Particularly the Mt2600, I've been offered a deal on one but it's only a deal if the kit is any good. Thanks Gaz
  3. Ive got into doing a bit of climbing lately (bit of a hobby), and my trusty husqvarna 41 has finally blown up, and i dont fancy swinging the 560 around up a tree. Hence i now need top handle saw, dont want to spend more than 300+ vat, not too fussed whether 30 or 40cc as each has its advantages. Narrowed it down to Makita, tanaka, efco, solo, echo. Which make and model of these top handles is the best saw in your experience? Cheers
