I have four Dolmar saws. Switched over from Stihl after 12 years. 2 5100 and 2 7900. The 5100 saws I use in pine or smaller timber. If you use them in pine be sure and clean the cylinder fins as pitch and sawdust will accumulate and cause them to overheat and score the cylinders. I do this about once a week. On the 7900 saws the only trouble I have had in 2 years is a failure of the kill switch. It is simple to replace and my dealer will warrenty them. Had a bad run of switches and went through several at first no troubles for the last few months. In my opinion they are a top of the line saw and I intend to continue to use them as long as I am logging.

That switch is a well known weak point of the 7900 etc- some replace them with Husky 372 etc switches.

  Have an old Sachs-Dolmar that I used hard for several years.  The coil went out one time after about 5 years of use and the kill switch went out and I just used the choke to kill it since.  After about 12 years of use and falling off the truck several times it got hard to start so I retired it.   I boutght a sthil to replace it and I will never do that again.
