this saw saved me $300 just as good as the expensive brands
this saw takes a replacement chain Oregon d70 chain with the original craftsman bar, or a d72 chain with Oregon bar. You dont have to go to sears to get the replacement chain if its dull or breaks. However with all saws I buy, I never use the OEM supplied chain, to me, it dulls and stretches too early. I owned this saw for 6 months so far, I do tree cutting on the side, and so far I cut about 35 trees with it so far. It starts up fine, I see there is a lot of complants, about all the plastic. If you look at the other expensive brands, they are plastic too. Long gone are the days of a all metal saw. The recoil hasnt broke on me, (im thinking some of the people who said they broke broke them by pulling the rope too hard or too long.) As for the people who say it wouldnt start or ran like ****, more than likely its probally because of old fuel, fuel not being mixed properly etc. Which will cause it not likely too start. I got I say 100 hours on the saw and its been perfect.

Lousy Saw
Bought this saw 16 months ago ran it for 1 season and cut approximately 4 cords of wood and the pull cord broke. Sears wants a minimum $75 to look at it. Replaced the cord myself and now 4 more cords of wood later the spring on the pull start broke. Found a local repair shop who stated it will be a minimum of $150 to repair or I can take it to Sears for the minimum $75 plus parts and labor. So now I have a $200 paper weight. I refuse to pay $150 to fix this peice of junk! If you plan on using this saw for anything but minor limb triming don't buy it! The fact that no one will repair it speaks volumes of the quality! I will never buy another Craftsman product after this experience!

Couple of tweaks + Informed operator = Very good saw

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.

chain saw

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great saw

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Only worked for about 15 minutes chain came off!

Was trying to cut a very small tree and for whatever reason the chain just jumped of the track. The other problem I had was that it was not as easy to start as advertised. It took about 6-7 pulls for it to start.
