Great saw, lousy chain...
Great chain saw for the money, but the chain supplied with it is a "consumer" version low-kickback Oregon 91PX, which dulls quickly on large logs and works well only on small branches. It has only one cutting tooth every third chain link. I was very disappointed in the performance and nearly returned the saw, but decided to try a professional chain first and installed the Oregon 91VXL. New chain has 50% more cutting teeth. Saw works like a champ now and easily cuts through large tree trunks all day. Don't blame the saw if it can't handle large trees - replace the consumer chain with a logger's version (if you know how to avoid kickback).

Broke down after 1 use Sears refuses to repair
Hard to start at first. Ran fairly well after warming up. Used to cut 1 oak tree. After owning for 3 months would not start. Sent for repairs - Sears claims this is not a manufacture defect and will not repair under warranty. I followed all directions and used the oil mix provided with the saw and thier claim is it was not sufficiently lubricated causing the cylinder to be scored and wanting to charge me more than I paid for the saw to begin with to repair. I followed all included instructions and use their oil that came in the case with the saw! They refuse to discuss the possibility that it may be defective and refuse to fix or replce my saw. Went to ********** and purchased a comparable Ryobi saw for less money with a 3 year warranty. It runs great! Much stronger than the Craftsman. This is one of many reasons I will never deal with Sears again.

The local store was out of this model and substituted an all black one with the same specs and 20.00 more.The one I received works OK on smaller stuff but bogs down and dies on large logs.

18 in 42 cc Gas Chain Saw case included

This chain saw was simple to use, lightweight and cut up a huge tree knocked down by lightning. It is stored in a case included to keep from accidents happening. I am a woman and can easily handle it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So far so good

I have used this saw only once so far. Right out of the box it started. It cut though some 8-9 inch trees with no problem. It did have some idol problems and I think it maybe the gas i was using. Overall I like the saw and it is a good value.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not sure

When I first used the saw it worked well the second time it took awhile before it would cut with out boggling down like it needed to warm up about a minute and a half or so. The third time it took about 5 minutes and I just took it back to Sears where I bought it now I'm with out a saw until they get it fixed or give me a new one they wouldn't just exchange it right now it was 15 days past the deadline which was 30 days. So maybe I was the unlucky one that just got a bad one

Two power saws neither worked

I have try so many times to get the chain saw to run and stay running, bough bar oil new unleaded gas and gas container add the oil that came with the purchase. Returned the first one and Sears staff could not get it to run. So I went through the hazel of getting a replacement and when through the same procedure and still I cound not get is to operate. I have addition investment in these two purchases: time, travel(gas) and anger.

Solid Chain Saw

I purchased the chain saw to remove some small trees and bushes. The saw has consistentely started and it has cut thru the trees of about to about 6 inch diameter without any issues. Has a good power to weight ratio where it will tackle the needed job but is not so heavy it tires your arms.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
