Nice Saw !!
So I have had many chainsaws. This is my first Dolmar. I am very impressed with the build quality. I finally got a chance to run it today as the weather was in the low 70's. I brought along a Stihl O36 pro as something to compare to,even thought they are not in the same class. At first I didn't realize how smooth the 5105 is !! But after making some cuts and switching saws quickly, it's night and day. I also have a Husky 550XP. That saw is Very light and cuts fast, but the auto-tune sucks ! I'm... more
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Features, Price

Great Saw Once Running!
Powerful and fast saw, but it is the hardest starting saw I ever had! Not reliable, never know when it's going to start? Over the years, I have had Stihls, Huskies, Homelite, etc.
Pros: Durable, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Unreliable

Good Saw
Got the 5105 mainly for limbing as I have a 7900 for big stuff but this saw cuts 18 inch Ash so well I use the big saw less and less.
Pros: Price, Light Weight, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Powerful Little Saw
Pros: Powerful, Lightweight, Easy Start, Easy to Handle

Cons: On/off switch seems a bit squishy/rubbery.

Overall this is a great little saw. I was up and running out of the box in about 20 minutes including assembly and reading a good portion of the manual. They have some good tips in there about cutting. The saw starts real easy and restarting is a breeze also. It's a powerful little saw that is easy to handle and maneuver.

For the money I expected a more durable looking/feeling... more

Not A Good Saw !!!!!!!!!
Right out of the box it took about 30 pulls to start. Have only used it a handful of times due to the starting issues. Called chainsaw direct they were no help at all!!!!! Told me to contact the manufacturer. Called the manufacture 5 Times left messages no one ever called me back.

So after only having the saw for two months I had to take it to a mechanic. It runs better now but it's still really hard to crank. Will never buy this brand of saw or purchase anything from this website... more
