Wonderful Saw- For the Money
I picked up this saw about 3 years ago and have used the heck out of it. I cut about 4 cords a year and it has worked very well. But let's face it, this is NOT a professional saw and anyone expecting it work like one is unrealistic. But if you do a couple of things it cuts very well and is quite reliable. 1. Keep a sharp chain on it. For whatever reason the chain this saw uses dulls pretty quick. I personally keep 3 chains and have a sharpener. 2. Keep your bar oil topped off. If you run out you toast your chain and bar. 3. Keep the roller tip lubed. 4. Clean the air cleaner- it collects a lot of junk where it sits. 5. Optional- go to a 16" bar and chain. The saw is better suited, power wise, for the 16" setup. I felt the 18" bar was pretty flimsey. So basically there aren't any real earth shattering suggestions here- JUST MAINTAIN YOUR SAW. It will cut very well for the average homeowner for a long time.

Disappointed
The engine was hard to start and once start it was stop running after a sshort run. I used the new gas and mixed 40:1 properly. I returned the product and found out they only exchanged the products. They gave me replacement with no problem but they will not give me refund. I exchanged twice.

Solid, reliable, and powerful

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great chainsaw for the dollar

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Disgusted

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.
