That's a good moderate size saw, should last for years if properly maintained.

Just curious if it's a small mount saw?
I've got a 262xp (about 10 or 12 years old) takes a small mount bar.Seems like the 262 was the largest saw to use the small mount.I'm not sure if this is the correct term for it.
But,I also own a 395xp which is a different mount (large mount)
I twould have been nice to have them both the same.I use some specialized 21 inch bars for log building.
262 xp,395 xp,built my own chainsaw mill

Both 254 and 262 use the same bar mount.

The 254xp is an excellent saw. You won't be dissapointed.
I run a 16" bar on mine, the saw just plays with it.
