Chain Saws Direct Recommended

If you are looking for a top of the line saw and not looking to break the bank, look no further than the Makita DCS642120RFG. This saw is about as professional as it gets when it comes to chainsaws. Many people are familiar with the brand Makita, but when they think Makita, they often think of power tools and not power equipment, well Makita has been offering power equipment for quite some time now. This saw is actually the twin brother of the Dolmar PS-6400-20. They are the exact same saw... more

Very Powerful, Don't Use The Choke - Will Flood - Chainsaw Direc
Packaging:
Was shipped from Chainsaw Direct via FedEx with no over box, so we it arrived the box was tore up and the bar was stuck out of the box....Chainsaw Direct, you need to overbox a saw this big! I inspected for damage, nothing bent or scratched, but for over $500 saw...put it in another box! Please! Plus if this is sitting on someone's porch, it says come steal me, I am a brand new professional saw!

This is a very powerful saw, I had rented a Dolmar 6400 last year to clean up a... more
Pros: Durable, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging, Chainsaw Direct Packaging was poor, no over box, just the retail

Best High End Performance Saw Without Busting The B
I own Stihls and Husqvarnas, and use saws weekly felling, limbing, bucking and ripping/milling.

Pros are that dolmar is/was german now makita owned, high end features high torque, more horse power for less money for the same stihl farm ranch or pro expect to pay around a 1000+. This saw with free shipping comes in under 700.

If you are an arborist or pro stick with pro saws.

Pros to this are price power and performance.

Cons not many local dealers for dolmar so know how to... more

Stop Comparing, Hands Down Worth It
I spent several hours for weeks trying to decide which saw to buy, everything just made sense about this Makita 6421. I own three saws, Husky 257, Dolmar 5100, and now Makita (Dolmar) and I'm so glad I made this purchase. Three things that make this a great buy is price, power, and undoubtedly performance. Three tanks of gas first day in my hands later, very very impressed. Smooth, powerful, weight seemed perfect, no problems at all worth every penny.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: None

Very Happy & Great Quality
I knew this would be an upgrade from my old unreliable 16" Stihl saw. I didn't realize how much of an upgrade until it ate up a wild cherry that had fallen in storm and helped to cut up some old stumps to the point where they could be easily removed. As others have noted, it is on the heavy side but that is also where it gets its ruggedness so the trade-off is worth it to me.
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: No case available

Love This Saw
This saw is awesome. I bought it and it came with a 20 inch bar so I bought a 24 in bar with a Oregon full chisel skip tooth chain then bought the heavy duty air filter. For a 64cc saw this thing cuts! Put it to the test on a 26 inch Douglas fir log and it chewed through it. It's also very easy to start - I would buy another
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Fast, Reliable
Cons: Heavy, Packaging

Great Saw, But Hard To Start
I bought this saw on recommendation from a friend. I was very excited when it showed up, went to start it and followed the instructions to a T. I was very disappointed and super worn out when I pulled the pull starter many times and it never started. So I went in the house and went to YouTube to find instructions on starting the saw. It stated to 'never use choke' unless the air temp is very cold, otherwise it will just flood the engine. So I let the saw sit for a few hours and then went to... more
Pros: High Quality, Price, Fast, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Heavy, Hard to start w/choke.

Best Bang For Your Buck
This is a great saw for the money. It has way more power than my Husqvarna 460 Rancher. I put a 24" bar and it is an absolute beast!

I Would Recommend It.
1: The first time I tried to start it, no go, never even fired. The box it came in was all taped up like it had been opened previously.

2: Took it down to the local Makita factory store and they replaced the cylinder head, piston, and rings. Said they were scorched like no oil. They asked me where I got it. They were very helpful and covered the repair at no charge and in one day.

3: Used it this weekend. It's a beast. Little heavy but it went through 20" trees like butter. It is a... more
