I have the cheapest version of that saw and I have used it exactly as you said you plan to. Very happy. Timberwolf sells the right length blades and I am happy with their performance. Look for their 3/4” blade for cutting wet wood. I think that the best price at the time (3 years ago) that I found was actually on Amazon so don’t forget to check there.

Note that for sawing logs, I found that it is helpful to make a sled that will hold the logs so that you can get nice straight boards. You’ll find a few examples and designs in the LJ projects section. It takes about an inch off the maximum diameter but makes the process go a whole lot better. 3’ is about the longest I can handle by myself. About half way through, I walk around and pull the log through the rest of the way.
