A power pack for the professional lumberjack with strict requirements for power, control and design. With its 60 cc of raw power and a highly competitive power-to-weight ratio, this saw is just as good for felling really big trees as it is for limbing and cross-cutting. This is Jonsered’s first saw that has a carburettor with built-in fuel compensation. This means that the fuel-air mixture is kept constant, so that the power remains unchanged over time. Together with turbo air cleaning, this keeps the power high while reducing filter wear, emissions and fuel consumption. The machine also has a magnesium crankcase, side-mounted chain tensioner and a catalytic converter which decreases emissions without affecting power.

Summary:
Great saw!!!

Strengths:
This is a great saw...camparable to a Stihl MS361. The Stihl is a smoother running saw; however, the Jonsered tachs and has a very high powerband. Overall, I am very pleased, especially when it was close to $100 less than the Stihl.

Weaknesses:
Slightly more vibration than a Stihl MS361 but not bad. Weak dealer network, fortunately I have 2 local dealers.

Summary:
a good summertime saw. it needs to be warm to start. in cool weather, plan on bringing it inside the house to warm up first. and i don't even bother to try to start this saw in the winter anymore, i just use a different saw.

Strengths:
narrow motor, good handle layout, nicely balanced. i even carved a totem pole with mine.

Weaknesses:
very, VERY hard to start.

Summary:

Strengths:
Has been a great saw except for the EPA muffler keeping you hands hot to the point you wear a OVE glove. A new aftermarket muffler fixed that problem. Always even at 30 Below zero started. Maybe not as fast as a saw with a primer set up but still starts.

Weaknesses:
NOt a thing.

Summary:
This saw had the potential to be a very good saw if not for starting and restarting issues. Seems the few dealers that sell and service Jonsered saws in my area are first time saw dealers and techs leave a bit to be desired. Saw was purchased few years ago when I could no longer get parts for the last of my 70E saws, whose performance will never be equaled.

Strengths:
Saw is lite with lot of power

Weaknesses:
Saw starts hard all time . Repeated trips to dealer no cure and gather this is common problem. Very poor dealer network. If you have used the Jonsred saws of the past 70 E and early turbo models it will be easy to be disappointed, especially concerning starting problems.
