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.

Good but just won't idle.

Performed good but it doesn't idle for more than 10 seconds. Need to find out if there is a way to adjust that in the manual.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works fine for me

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Best chainsaw yet, I know this is the best investment for a real long time.

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
