Do Not Buy
I have used chain saws for 45 years. This is the worst chain saw from a major brand name I have ever seen or used.
Pros: Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Chain Comes Off The Saw Even If Tensioned Properly

Husqvarna 240e Upholds Company's Reputation
This is my second "Husky". My previous one was more powerful with a longer bar and was fine. However, thought I didn't need it anymore and sold it (a big mistake).

I finally bought another (240E) and it actually works better! I cut up trees 8"and larger after Sandy and it was like a hot knife through warm butter. I was having so much fun that I was actually glad I knocked chain off bar (quick fix) and had to quit for the day. The next day knew I should have stopped... more

Needed Chainsaw To Cut Trees For Fire Wood.
Twenty five years ago, while living in WA State, I was taught to use a chain saw with some private loggers.
They taught me how to cut trees and limbs, then to be taken to the mill.
Now that training has paid off. A wood stove is the big need here in TX.
So I turned to Husqvarna as the tool use.
In WA, Husqvarna was the only chainsaw used by these private loggers I was around.

19 Cords And Counting
We cook and heat with wood. Wood burning stoves use a lot of wood to keep an oven at 350 degrees for two hours and by that time, it's 100 degrees in the house. This saw has been able to keep up with our needs. The only problem I have, is the chain blade. No one around here stocks the 18" blade for this saw and I sure could use a new one for Christmas!!
Great saw, at a great price.
Thank you guys,

Dan Taylor, Burnsville, NC.

Good For Limbs
This 240e is best used for limb trim or pruning. It could be a good second saw if you have another to fell trees, as this one just won't cut it. It's under-powered even for 12" trees- live and learn.

I purchased a Rancher model today, I hope it's better. I had a lot of trees downed by Sandy; they remain downed and in my way until I find a saw with guts. The 240e is not it.

Great Consumer Saw
Unfortunately, the tree was bigger than anticipated. The saw took a little longer due to its girth, but did the job.....

Really Like This Saw
I used to borrow my brother-in-law's Stihl whenever a tree fell down. He paid a lot for it but you could never use it for an extended period of time. Something always had to be adjusted or repaired (there's a Stihl repair center near us).

After the last storm we both had trees to cut down and I didn't want to have anyone make a long trip for a saw. So, I researched and ordered the 240E. It was our anniversary anyway! My wife loved the idea.

I found the Husqvarna cut a lot easier than... more

Cuts Through Trees Like Butter
I had trouble starting at first, then I reduced the choke and it fired right up.

The saw is awesome. I started cutting wood until I got tired. The saw never got tired and it cut through trees like butter.

Saw Wouldn't Start
Received the chain in three days, but it wouldn't start, so had to take it to a repair shop for warranty work. The shop has had it for a week, so still haven't got to see how it operates.

CSD RESPONDS: We're sorry you had trouble starting the saw. Something you might want to try is to "actively" engage the chain brake while starting the saw... on new saws it can be stiff, and won't let the unit start until you put some muscle on it.

Bummed!!!
On the first tank with the brand new saw, after making 6 or 8 cuts through 3" diameter branches the saw would rapidly lose power as soon as I would start a cut and die out. I'd start it back up and it would rev up pretty nicely then die out again in mid cut. Changed fuel, same problem.
