What are you talking about? (Sounds like a nerve was touched?)

I said 40 cc RedMax.

Less familiar with redmax, when I looked the only close match on products was the GZ7000, which I assumed you meant by "redmax 7"... which is their top powered saw. Often people shorten models, and leave out bits of the name... no nerve touched,  just have too many friends who make wild comparisons between not-even close things, and thought this might have been one of those sorts of situations.

 :D Well you can be "brand loyal" if you want but when you cut to the chase just about any saw no matter who made it within a specific displacement range will cut nearly the same .Now this is not saying things like balance and ease of handling would be the same .

I liked the redmax before they were bought by husky. The new redmax's are just red huskys. Like that redmax 7000 = husky 570.

I liked the light redmax 3800 old school 38cc.   I also have a echo 3900 39cc that is light too.  Both under 10lbs PHO weights.

 I just dont like carrying 3cube 50cc weight saw in the 40cc package.  If I'm going to carry a 40cc saw weighing the same weight  as 50cc 10.8lbs to 11.4lbs I'm going with 50cc saw.

If you can find an old stihl 009 in good shape, they are hard to beat for the combination of small size, light weight and power for anything up to 14-16" ;D
Manage 80 acre tree farm in central Missouri and Mesquite timber and about a gozillion saguaros in Arizona.

I think if you look around you can find a lot of examples of building saws from the same platform .To name a few  Stihl 029-039 ,038AV-038 Magnum .McCulloch 10-10--Mac 700 and the list goes on .

People of course like to refer to Stihl or Husqvarna but it might surprise a few how well some of the Poulans in the sub 3 cube class run.Fact I've got some Craftsman model of a 46 cc saw that can get with the program ---for a little while .It's a work in progress .Seals no doubt .
