This saw is a ********, especially around black Friday. I've put it through about 4 hours of usage and dealt with chain stretch, requiring 3 adjustments. I experienced the bogging down of the saw, that many people have mentioned, and this is due to the factory emissions adjustment that it leaves the factory with. After about 4 tanks of gas ran through it, take it to a professional to have the carb adjusted. This fixed the bogging down issue for me and now I can get the entire bar into the wood. The chain tensioner broke on me after a minor kickback but it was a 5 dollar part, even though under warranty. I didn't want to deal with that hassle. I've got a husky 16" that I use for limbing and I would say that for the money, this is about as good as it gets before you start dropping more than an additional $100 on another saw in the same class. For a saw that will serve the average homeowner, this is the one you want.

Chain saw works well. Im glad I "splurged" and bought his model over the 16". I used this to cut through 8"-12" diameter trees without any issue. the carrying case was a plus.

This is a very good chainsaw that just needs some tweaking and an informed user to operate properly, There are 2 problems I noticed on mine that I think compose a good deal of the complaints I've read online about this saw and its twin the Poulan 5020AV. The first is the carb needed minor adjustment and the second is the short length of the starter pull cord. The carb issue makes the saw bog down once warmed up and then eventually stall. Restarting is only possible after saw is cooled down, but the problem reoccurs once warm again (this happens even in low altitude). To remedy this on mine, I ran the engine until the bogging began then turned the LOW SPEED screw counterclockwise while revving the engine up and down until the motor responded without hesitation. Note that the low (& high) speed screws are tamper-resistant but can be turned with the proper tool, or you can make something homemade as I did (a female solderless connector jammed on the end of a small screwdriver worked). Since I made this adjustment, I have run my saw probably over 10 hours now and have had no engine issues whatsoever. The second problem, the short starter cord, makes it VERY EASY to "overpull" the cord beyond its travel length. Pulling too far is probably the biggest reason starter mechanisms like this fail. Be mindful of that when starting this thing and keep your pulls to the bare minimum. At the same time (as with any small engine) do not put much pulling force into the cord until you feel the starter pawl engage the flywheel. So far, I have been very happy with this saw even when using cheapo 87 octane. I've used both Husqvarnas and Stihls and can say this one is pretty close in quality/performance to those brands. I decided to "downgrade" from the big boys was because I got tired of paying an arm and a leg for parts and/or being forced to buy them only from a high markup dealer (are you listening, Stihl?). One thing I do miss on this saw that the other guys have is a replaceable rim sprocket design. The Craftsman combines the sprocket and clutch in one piece, which not only makes it more difficult to replace, but also makes you replace more than is necessary. There are several small gripes I have with the saw worth mentioning, The first is that the base of the air filter where it mates to the carb intake does not make an air tight seal, even when it's locked in place with its retaining clip. Over time, I could see fine sawdust working its way possibly mucking up engine. The problem is easily patched, however, just by adding a small loop of weather-stripping into the underside of the filter. The other complaint is that I found one of the screws on the exterior only threaded halfway in. I tightened it and went over the other exterior ones, but it made me wonder how well the fasteners deeper down were secured. The bumper spike is a most welcome addition. I?ve had ZERO issues with my saw throwing a chain, even when I've left slack in it.
I bought this for my boyfriend as a surprise gift. He opened it up and was disappointed I bought Craftsman. He has since changed his way of thinking about Craftsman. He loves this saw. You couldn't pry it out of his hands.

This saw is good for anything you could need to cut around the house. I have been cutting trees with a 36" diameter without any trouble. Also, it is very easy to start.
