Summary:
5 star rating in my book. Couldn't ask for a better saw. Has met every challenge with ease.

Strengths:
Light weight, easy to start, phenomenal performance. I purchased the saw after Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Had 5 large palm, mango, & black olive trees blown down. I thought the saw might last long enough to chop those up and get them to the street. It's now 2010 and the saw is going strong. It's like any other quality piece of equipment, if you do proper maintenance on the tool, it'll last you forever. What more can I say?

Weaknesses:
small light duty saw

Summary:
Great little chainsaw.

Strengths:
This saw has never let me down in the 5 years I've owned it. I do take good care of it, but it is very rugged and reliable. I cut a lot of firewood for camping and it still runs like the day I bought it.

Weaknesses:
Only a 14" bar, so it won't cut thick trees. Can't buy it at Lowes.

Summary:
Tough little saw with the exception of the throttle cable problem

Strengths:
Light weight. Easy to start

Weaknesses:
Design flaw?... in the throttle cable/carb linkage, after 5-6 years of use the cable broke, it wears/rubs slightly on the carb body every time the throttle trigger is squeezed. Cable is difficult to install. Slightly underpowered.

Summary:
Worth every dime of the $199 I paid for it.

Strengths:
Easy 2 start, light weight, seems to run forever with little problem, has run strong for 6 years now with only normal maintenance. With 12 inch bar it is perfect as a limbing saw.

Weaknesses:
None that I can find yet. Doesn't really pull the 14 or 16 inch bars too well in hardwood like oak. A 12 is the hot ticket.

Summary:
Not bad, I won't throw it in the ditch. I like it for limb work and soft woods. Had to buy it for a emergency job on the road. They didn't have the CS-315 in stock.

Strengths:
Nice and light, starts easily and every time.

Weaknesses:
Under powered, for bar size. Now having clutch trouble. Investigating parts availability now.
