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 value

I bought this saw from a friend who only had it 6 months and used it once. i struggled at first to get it started but once i did it usually only takes me 3-4 pulls anymore. also had the blade fall off on second cut but that was probably my fault for not checking tension before i started. i knew nothing about putting the blade back on but with the manuals help and the useful tool that came with it i got it back on relatively easy. ever since then ive had no issues with it and have cut down some rather thick trees. The case and extra blade are really nice extras

I would recommend this product to a friend.

bought in a pinch

We had to replace a 4-yr old Sears chain saw during a busy weekend of tree splitting, this has worked fine. Came with extra arm and chain, but they are smaller. OK - two different sizes will do. But package was not clear about that info. Has worked for 2 months now.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good value.

I bought this to do some light cutting of firewood. I liked the fact it had two bars and a carrying case. I have been very pleased with its performance. Follow the instructions about fuel recommendations. I used 100% gas for my mix to start with and had problems with it stalling. Switched to regular gas and have had no issues. Very light weight.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This thing is amazing

For lightweight durability, it's my favorite saw for clearing the woods out back. It keeps going and going and the blade stays unbelievably sharp. Keep the bar oiled and use 40:1 mixture and it just keeps cutting. Excellent saw for long term cutting due to it's ergonomics.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.
