Wonderful Saw- For the Money
I picked up this saw about 3 years ago and have used the heck out of it. I cut about 4 cords a year and it has worked very well. But let's face it, this is NOT a professional saw and anyone expecting it work like one is unrealistic. But if you do a couple of things it cuts very well and is quite reliable. 1. Keep a sharp chain on it. For whatever reason the chain this saw uses dulls pretty quick. I personally keep 3 chains and have a sharpener. 2. Keep your bar oil topped off. If you run out you toast your chain and bar. 3. Keep the roller tip lubed. 4. Clean the air cleaner- it collects a lot of junk where it sits. 5. Optional- go to a 16" bar and chain. The saw is better suited, power wise, for the 16" setup. I felt the 18" bar was pretty flimsey. So basically there aren't any real earth shattering suggestions here- JUST MAINTAIN YOUR SAW. It will cut very well for the average homeowner for a long time.

Disappointed
The engine was hard to start and once start it was stop running after a sshort run. I used the new gas and mixed 40:1 properly. I returned the product and found out they only exchanged the products. They gave me replacement with no problem but they will not give me refund. I exchanged twice.

Great saw at a great price

Got this saw to cut up some downed trees. Trees were huge, som were 36" across. Saw did a good job cutting them down to a manageable size. Easy starting too. The additional 14" bar and chain is a plus

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Some issues, but resolved

We bought this a couple months earlier and the second time we used it, it broke. We got it exchanged, no problems, and has worked great since, but this time, we bought the warranty with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good saw for the money

this is a great saw for trimming branches or cutting down small trees. It fits nicely in your hands,isn't extreamly heavy and cuts smoothly.It comes with 18 and 14 inch bars and chains making it versatile.Only drawback is there is a slight learning curve as to starting it warm.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great tool for the right price

This chain saw is everything and now. I put about 30 hours of use over a 5 day period and not one miss step. Let it set for 2 weeks, pushed the primer twice and it started in 2 pulls just as the instructions indicated. Need less to say I'm very pleased.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 18in chainsaw

could use a button to feed chain oil when more is needed than is being automatically pumped out...like when the saw is turned sideways.
