The Acres site says it's simultaneously firing opposed pistons... I'd assume it's a torquey lil thing...

It is an interesting piece. I have seen one run, incredibly smooth but heavy and bulky. Not very practical for the everyday logger.

 Those sell for a lot of money on Ebay.     Steve

someone that worked for me back in the mid 80's had one. it was the answer to a question that no one asked. the echo's were tuff and stood up well. when the echo rep asked me what i thought of them. told him they run good but they handle like a shoe box

 New Echo saws handle about as good as it gets.    Steve

I own one, nearly brand new. I've used it a few times. Lots of torque. Incredibly smooth, no vibration. They sound tuff.
I don't use it much as parts are nearly impossible to get. I've seen them go on Ebay from $600 to $1200 depending on condition. Mostly a collector's saw, not a daily work saw.
A 20" bar is the longest bar I would put on this saw as it's only 61 cc.
