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.

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.

Bogs Out / Hard To Start

I bought this saw two weeks ago. Started it up just fine one day, but I didn't cut anything. One week later, I turned it on just fine, but it turned off after 20 or so seconds. Turned it back on and it made a few nice cuts with plenty of power, but it kept turning off. I couldn't make two cuts without it turning off and struggling to turn it back on. I returned / exchanged it for the "Heavy Duty" 18" 46cc Craftsman chainsaw (not sure model #, but it's the only 46cc black saw). That saw purrs...... I would not buy this saw again. I should've known with the 3.5 star rating.

Craftsman 18" gas chainsaw

The chain saw came right out of the box and with a little coaxing came right to life. The saw seemed a little cranky as the job progressed but overall the job was completed. The saw cut straight and is easy to handle, by cranky I am referring to it cutting out and then restarting after already warm. Overall it seems to be a quality tool!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Chainsaw Purchase

Definitely would recommend to friends and family. Instructions were easy to follow and very helpful regarding cleanup and long term storage. Started on the first try and was great in helping me get rid of a stubborn tree that could not be felled with an electric chain saw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
