    Battery blower works great for smaller applications. (As in if you wouldn't use a backpack blower for more than 7 minutes.) I'm probably going to keep one with my chipper to blow off radiator screen and out the fins after every chipping. (Right now I have to borrow the one I bought my wife for a birthday present - when I'm around the house.)

    I don't know about the dolmar, but my 2188 had almost all I wanted which is why I got it: Husqvarna 390 at a discount, outer rim sprocket, good power to weight ratio, I like the 3 setting oiler which does about either 1/3, 2/3, or >1 tank oil per tank of gas. Only down sides are parts availability, I wish it had an upgrade filter like the 372, bigger spikes would be nice, and it had trouble keeping a 42" bar oiled well, I'd say 32" max for decent oiling. I'd also like to see more heatsink surface area, it gets pretty hot, and the exhaust blows right up the handle which about burns my hand.

    I'm very happy with my 2188 and Echo 271t setup. The only thing that would be better is if they were ported and had light weight bars. I'd quickly get another 2188, I gave up a good 660 I had to get mine.

    the 2188 and its accompanying 390xp are both exceptional saws from what i've been able to tell

    i'm pretty interested and would love to get my grubby hands on one.

    Did Husqvarna make them? That wasn't even broken in yet, it looked like 30 seconds through pine with 24" bar. Comparing to my 2188 which maybe on it's 5th tank of gas was cutting around 24"oak with 20" bar in just over 20 seconds, so they seem pretty close.
