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.

Works great, priced right!

Did my research before finally purchasing this craftsman chainsaw, compared to other brands this one is well worth buying. The quality is great and the price was just right. Sears has great rewards programs and offers that make every purchase worth it. Not disappointed with performance at all, quick start feature is nice and comes with a case to store it in.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Husband was in need of new chainsaw. He looked at several stores for just the the right one. When looking at the Sunday sale add he saw this one on sale plus as a "Shop Your Way" rewards member we received an extra $20 off the sale price. He couldn't pass up the deal.

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.
