    I believe that to be an HOS model. It will do a great job. Can you find Stihl wheels? Better quality than the pink in my belief.

    What is that blue chain grinder hard to make out in the picture is it a Remington? Never seen that owned a lot of Oregon grinders and I’m currently using the 511 hydraulic assist one and love it should’ve got one years ago for how much quicker it is and doesn’t need parts all the time like my previous 511’s. That blue grinder looks very intriguing though different design then I’ve seen. How do they work? I’ve bought two other grinders besides Oregon the stihl usg which was good I just preferred the Oregon and a $3600 dynasaw or something like that which is still sitting in a box collecting dust practically brand new because it was replaced under warranty and we still couldn’t figure it out.

    That is heavy duty I like it. Idk how I’ve never seen or heard of such a beautiful unit maybe we don’t have them in Canada? Feel like I would remember that if I saw them. It’s like when your buy a trans am and your neighbour goes out and buys a mint 1969 mustang and makes you feel like less of a man. Well right now my Oregon grinders a Chevy cavalier and that looks like a Lamborghini.

    could be the problem then cause I’ve only been around 29 years next month but I’ve been around saws most of that my dad had a shop up until recently and I learned a lot and saw a lot of this kind of stuff just not one of those. So comparing that to what I’ve got to play with it’s pretty impressive looking.
