Great saw for light to medium tree trimming. Started on the third pull (right out of the box). I glad I made the investment in this tool.
Just purchased this last week and put about 3 hours on it over the weekend. Was easy to start and restart. In addition to following the directions in the book for initial use and start up I used a needle point grease gun to lube the front bar sprocket. Depending on how long it was turned off the restart would either occur on the first pull with no choke and if it didn't it started on the first pull after that with half choke. Initial start up took 3 pulls after pumping the primer if I remember correctly. Sears has the wrong chain specs listed for this saw. I emailed Oregon and got a quick response from them that this saw has and uses their 91 series chain which is 3/8" pitch, .050" gauge. If you pull the chain down out of the bar you can find the 91 stamped on the guide links to verify. I cut down and cut up 10 or 12 small hardwoods up to 12" in diameter and it went through them like butter. The first 3 I cut in about 4 to 6 foot lengths and after that I cut them all in very short lengths to make them easier for my wife to help carry. I could tell near the end it was starting to dull slightly but the chain had not loosened up. I was tired and put it up dirty but I will clean it up and sharpen the chain before I use it again. In hindsight I should have at least blown all the debris off before sliding the bar back in the sheath but I will blow that out when I clean it all up. I went by ***** and compared to the size and feel of the 18" Husky and those seem a little lighter but not worth twice as much in my opinion. The Craftsman weighs about 14-15 lbs. This is another specification they omitted from the description.
I bought this chainsaw and started cutting down tress in my yard easier than ever. I was able to cut through trees that I couldn't cut with my old chainsaw. I know I made a very good investment by buying this Craftsman chainsaw.
