Great Saw!
If you read the directions, it is really easy to start. I tried just cranking it to start it too and it wouldn't start. Once I followed their steps it starts every time! Hard to keep the chain sharp though.
Pros: Price, Quiet, Easy To Use

Once Its Warmed Up, It Keeps Stalling On Me And Is Hard To Start
I bought the Husqvarna 240 because I new the name and reputation of there saws. But I am disappointed that it does not run well when it warms up. It cuts great, but it keeps on stalling when it idles. I took it to the repair shop and it needed a new oiler for the chain. The saw is not even a year old. I am thinking about hanging it up and buying a Stihl chain saw. I am hoping that they will get my chain saw working the way it should. P.S, Good thing I took a 3 year warranty on the saw for parts... more
Pros: Price, Features, Quiet, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Unreliable

Piece Of -hit
Was always hard to start. I only had the saw for 3-1/2 months and the plastic dogs that hold the pull rope broke. The dealer called Husqvarna about the warranty. They said it was not covered. Can you believe that. I have had Husqvarna for over 20 years. They used to be great saws.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Difficult To Use

Hard To Start. Always Stops.
This little chain saw is a pain. I wear myself out trying to start it. Once it starts and warms up, it manages to cut well. However, it continually stops when idling, so I have to work hard to start it again.

I spend half of my time trying to start the thing rather than doing the job.

Terrible purchase. Waste of money. Waste of time.
Pros: Price
Cons: Unreliable, Difficult To Use

I bought The 240 Husqvarna, I tell you that it is the worst saw I have ever had. Worked great 1 time, ever since then nothing but trouble. I can't keep the saw running for nothing. As soon as it warms up it just shuts off. I cut a few limbs then the saw seems to choke down and quits it's very irrating.

Huqvarna Chain Saw
Cuts great however, when it was new it started fine now it will not start. I have always sworn to Husqvarnas now I am to the point where I may NEVER buy another one again.

Why Sell Anything As Sorry As This
I got approximately 30 minutes use, put it in the shop, $75 later 1 pull the flywheel sheared off my plan now is to hang it up and use it for a target. I am very disappointed with Husqvarna for selling such a piece of junk!!!!!!!
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability

Saw Is Quiet, And Starts And Runs Reliably Once You Adjust Carb.
I bought the 240, and immediately noticed it was difficult to start, and would stutter and die after making a cut. Once the carburetor had some tweaking done to it, the idle smoothed out, and it also became extremely easy to crank.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Can't Figure Out Which File Kit It Uses

The Old Man And His Saw
It has done everything I asked it to do. Have noticed that the older I get the heavier ten pounds becomes. (But that's no fault of the saw.) I have been pleasantly surprised that the more I use the saw the easier it is to start. My biggest problem now is "how do I dispose of the old saw?", also a Husqvarna.
Pros: Durable, Price, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again
