My 12-year-old electric craftsman chain saw has finally died for the final time. So I purchased this one to replace it. Bad mistake! After 30 minutes of accumulated use during the day. The following items were noted.
1. Chain falls off drive gear about once every 10 minutes of use. Seems any contamination that gets inside will derail the unit.
2. The no tools adjustment for chain tension is of no value. It loosens up during cutting from vibrations.
3. 7 out of every 10 times you try to start the unit, the chain only sits there while the motor in running full tilt.
4. While cutting branches of at least 1-inch thickness, the chain will just stop while the motor screams on.
5. The chain saw is so over engineered for safety that it is dangerous. The chain break is useless.
I had neighbors come over and try out my new saw. Everyone was disappointed. All reported that the unit was a piece of junk.
We tried every combination of chain slack and chain tension to try and correct the problems encountered.
Nothing seems to work at all.
I have used chain saws, manual saws, power and non-power tools for over 50 years. This is by far the worst device I have found to date.

We cut down 8 poplar trees on the first day we bought this chain saw. It is a great saw, works exactly as it should and recommend it to anyone looking to buy an electric chain saw.
I purchase this one- Electric chain saw with 3.5 hp 16". It's convenient for my house. I like it and I'll recommend to anybody who need to use it.( Craftsman tools only).

Bought this electric saw to cut down some trees in my backyard. This was my first chainsaw and I must say I did not know what to expect. This saw cut right through a 7 inch trunk like it was butter! I am very impressed with the results and could not be happier.

I just used this to cut down a heavily overgrown bush that had a 8" trunk. It did a tidy job of taking it down and cutting it into manageable pieces. I use a chainsaw infrequently and got tired of the startup problems with my old gas saw. Tuning up the old saw would have cost more than buying this new electric one. Plug it in, push the trigger and you are in business. Be patient and don't force it, this saw is good but of course does not have the cutting power of a good gas unit. Recommended for occasional, infrequent chainsaw user.
