Q: MIKE- ON THE 18" MCCULLOUGH CHAIN SAWS, IS IT ELECTRIC STARTER? THANKS- HELEN
by HELEN from Georgia on October 26, 2011

A: The "Effortless Pull Starting™ System" that McCulloch uses on this saw is still a recoil starter- where you have to pull the rope to get the motor going.

The "effortless" part has reduced the resistance in the starter cord by up to 40%, so you don't have to pull as hard to get it going.

Great Saw
Made little work of a large tree that was blocking an access road to the back of my property.

It started after the 4th pull on initial start up and then on the 1st pull every time after that. The sharp chain did not disappoint.

Well worth the purchase.

Good Saw
I'm 47 years old and owned a lot of saws over the years and cut a lot of wood. So believe me when i tell you, if you are looking for a good saw to keep the homestead clean- Look no farther.

This one has it, a little hard to start COLD ( 5 to 10 pulls) but it is a cuttin' fool. Reminds me a lot of the old Mac 610. Good saw.

Good Saw For The Money
Good Saw for the money. Cuts well and powerful. Only problem is that it is difficult to start after it is hot.

I Now Have Two Chain Saws!
My wife has two horses on some small acerage and so when the winds of November hit the Northwest there are more than a few limbs that hit the ground and need to be cleared up and hauled off. For years I have been using an old Homelite 16" to handle the work as the limbs are usually of a size that the saw could handle the work. This year the clutch seemed to be having a fatal problem as the chain wouldn't stop cycling when the saw was idling.

Time to buy a new saw.

Good Chain Saw
This saw cuts well and isn't a pain to start. Good saw for the money and it's made in the USA.

I recommend it to anybody looking for a good all-around chain saw.
