I purchased this chainsaw after reading that it received high marks from Consumer Reports. I had a large tree fall over in my yard, and needed a a decent saw to get it taken care of. With this chainsaw I was able to easily cut through all branches in a quick, stable manner, making relatively short work of the project. Chain tensioning was an easy process with the supplied tool, and the anti-vibration feature allowed for longer continuous use so that I could keep working. I'd recommend this tool to anyone in the market for a well designed, medium-duty chainsaw.

Great Chainsaw. It comes with everything you need including a case. The case is great for keeping the bar oil contained. plenty of power to cut with
We bought this for a Christmas for my husbands dad and he loves it. He needed it to use to get wood for their wood stove and he couldn't be happier with it.

brought one in april 2013 used it once it stopped working. sears replaced it free because it was only a month old.so got a new one in may of 2013 did not use it until November 2013 for the first time, and guess what. I blocked one piece of wood it heated up and now will not start. used oct. 93 in the gas so no ethyl 10% or otherwise used in this saw.
I wasn't sure what saw to purchase. Having the extra bar and chain is good in case the 18 inch gets bent. Overall, very happy with the saw. It performs better than expected and is very safe and durable for a medium duty chain saw.
Bought this Heavy Duty Chainsaw thinking it would make my tree cutting tasks easier. Had an Extremely hard time trying to get it started and when I did, it stopped after five minutes of use and couldn't get it started again. Returned it within a hour of purchase and bought the cheaper model, which ahs worked much better.
