2 CYCLE 16" CHAIN SAW is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1718.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw. great value I have a lot that is just under an acre and have several trees. I got tired of trimming and thinning trees with a hand saw, so in March of 2018 I purchased this saw. I have used the saw on several occasions for small jobs and it has performed very well. One of the trees in my yard was a 50 foot Globe Willow that I planted in early 92. in recent weeks it had sustained some wind damage in the canopy of the tree that made it dangerous to keep because of the potential for branches falling on the house or possibly a family member. So this past week I cut all branches out of the tree that the saw bar length could handle. The saw performed flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, best case! Amazing value! We had a storm that toom down a lot of trees! Chainsaws were flying off the shelf! We needed one, i almost compromised and bought a different brand. Luckily home depot got a new stock in! I snatched it up! The case is perfect! It has space to store the bar/chain oil (1quart bottle!) and the 2 cycle oil (16oz!) the scabbard also remove from the case to transport the chainsaw without the full case. The case is square not custom molded so its stackable with other items and not awkwardly shaped. The chainsaw itself is light but doesnt feel cheap. And it cuts through wood like butter! Following the easy steps to start from cold start it started up easy! Ive never had a problem with Ryobi products, and im positive with the proper care and maintenance this will last. Couldnt be more happy with this chainsaw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, easy to use I had a chainsaw that was way outdated. Hard to start and, really lacked a lot of features to make it useable and, safe. It was very heavy and, hard to handle. This Ryobi is a dream come true and, very nice priced, love the hard case it came with, works well to store the tool and, accessories needed to have when operating. Simple operation, excellent safety features and, ease of use is great, perfect for my home use. Everything about this saw suits my needs for a chainsaw. I would recommend this saw to anyone looking for a tool with simple operation great features and, ease of use plus excellent performance at a price that is very affordable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chainsaw for the price To be honest I wasn't really expecting too much from this little saw. I guess I got caught up in the fact that its not one of those big expensive brand name saws. Right out of the box this thing has been chewing up the wood. I have used it a ton as I rely on my wood stove to heat the house. It is also pretty easy on the fuel and bar & chain oil as well. My only complaint, if I had any, would be that I have to sharpen the chain more often than I would like. Other than that this has been a great chain saw especially considering how much I paid for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Chain Saw for Home Owner I bought the Ryobi 16 chain saw about a month ago for cleanup for down branches and trees after hurricane Isaias came through New Jersey in August. The chain saw easy to use. The instruction is conveniently displayed near to handle. It was easy to cold start as instructed. The engine is good enough for cleanup purposes and served it's purposed. Occasionally, the chain bar get struck in the tree trunk and the engine hums, and had to pull the bar out of the tree trunk. If the engine was a little bigger/more powerful, it probably would not get stuck. Cleaning it up after use was easy. Overall, I would say is a good home owner's chain saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job. Perfect for a homeowner. I bought this one because as a homeowner, when you need a chainsaw, the power is often unreliable. I recently needed to cleanup after a storm and this machine works! It worked right out of the box. Be sure to purchase some bar and chain oil, as the package only includes 2 cycle oil and not chain oil. It's easy to take apart and clean and easy to replace the chain. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I wish it was easier to start, but I won't knock it too much since that's common with pull to start 2 cycle engines. If you're just a homeowner and need to cleanup some trees around your property, look no further than this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great First Saw I bought this saw on a weekend to cut a neighbor's tree into firewood lengths. I've never owned or operated a chainsaw before. I had friend's recommend much higher priced brands, but since this was an unplanned purchase, I was just looking for something that would get the job done and was affordable. This saw fit those requirements very well. I use Ryobi 18V One+ cordless tools, so was familiar with the brand, but this was my first Ryobi gas tool. The engine started easily and reliably every time and had plenty of power to cut through the 14" diameter oak logs I was cutting. Very easy to use for a beginner. Great power. Great value. Exactly what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chainsaw Purchased this chainsaw for 2 reasons. 1.Previous saw was electric and I just plain got tired of dragging an extension cord around behind me. 2. As long as you follow the instructions is very easy to start. When I first tried to start I got saw flooded and spent about 2 hours pulling and never did get it started. I t was 2-3 days before I could get back to it and following the instructions that are right on the top of the saw it started on the first pull. I use it mainly for cutting down bushes and small trees and couldn't believe how much better it cut than my old electric, which is going to be put out at my next garage sale.
