Many of the carvers doing large stuff use both gas and electric.
I was a Stihl dealer for 20+ years, we assembled and started every saw we sold at the purchase time, we always installed the blade with "STIHL" printing upside down, we did that to show the blade was reversible, for longer lasting.
I can't tell you all the times we would sharpen a chain, the customer would take home and install, then call and say, "YOU RUINED MY CHAIN, IT JUST BOUNCES". Then we would tell the chain was on BACKWARDS. Then they would say, OH, and hang up. hehe.
Stilh, great product.
