It's A Good Saw. For The Price, It Is A Great Saw!
This is a good chain saw for the money. It's light, and it is easy starting, SO LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. There is a really good label right on the handle bar that details starting instructions. I attempted to just start it my way. I flooded it. Once I actually read the instructions, the saw fired up right away.

I have some other saws that I use for bigger projects. I was looking for something that I could toss on the back of my ATV and haul around for clearing trails etc. without... more
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Delivered As Promised, Good Value
I recently ordered this saw and it arrived on the day promised and was ready to go to work. One note: when you first begin to work the saw, it would be beneficial to stop and adjust the chain after it heats up. I didn't read this advice in the instructions and didn't stop and adjust. After about 10 minutes of work, the chain came off.

Trouble Out Of The Box
I followed all the instructions and it started right up after adding fuel and chain oil. During the first use, the chain came off. It was tight when I started. I couldn't get it back on so I called the company.

The person I spoke with said it didn't sound like a warranty issue but that I would have to take it to the nearest approved service center to find out. I turns out that is in a small town about 40 miles away.

Great Value
I follow the directions and the saw started and ran great.

I got a saw that has a 18-inch bar and a 45 cc motor for 10.00 dollars less than a saw in the same category.

More saw for the money. I am very happy with this saw.
