I bought this saw for the lightness. Getting older and appreciate a light saw. Pros: Saw is light and is easy starting. Cons: Under powered Bogged down when sawing a 10" walnut log. Location of stop switch. I accidently hit it while sawing. Thought I had ran out of gas. CS-310 would make a wonderful limbing saw which I believe it was met for. For that class of saw I prefer my grandson's MS 180.
