Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Product! We bought this chainsaw over the weekend at Home Depot to cut down a dead tree that had fallen on our property. We debated making a bigger purchase for one job, but I am so glad that we did. It took all of 5 minutes to chop the tree into manageable pieces. The set up and directions were easy to follow. Definitely worth the money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boo Bought this to replace a junk craftsman that lasted 2 weeks. Used it once in the summer. After snow storm the other day, pulled it out fired up and the clutch started smoking 5 minutes into cutting and now doesn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent chainsaw for the price! I bought this chainsaw a week ago, and I have been very pleased. It is light weight, starts up easily, and is powerful. Cleared out several trees on a tree farm. No regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chainsaw, a Cut Above Brand new and followed the instructions in the manual to a Tee for its 1st start up. Put in canned Fuel 50:1 mix and bar oil. It fired right up and idled. I ran the engine at mid throttle and high throttle up and down for about 5 minutes and back to idle to break everything in just right. Cleared some big fallen branches and the 18" blade sure made the job easy. Thanks for producing great equipment.
