The Beast.
The guys really like this saw. It cuts great and no problems at all. It starts right up, and is made really sturdy.

Do Not Buy This Chainsaw
I bought this chainsaw a year ago at Menards had it for a month used it three times. Thought, okay, its not too bad of a saw, then went to start it and the plastic part that the rope pulls to start it breaks so okay, get that fixed after taking two months to get the warranty to replace it.

I get it back, use it two more times and it breaks again. So take it back again now they say the engine has shifted in the case causing it to not line up right and thats why it keeps breaking and the... more

Plastic Starter Gear Is Only Available In 25 Dollar Assembly.
Has very easy to break plastic gear at rope pull. Three months and this..? Have a John Deere with 20 years on rope mechanism. Good thing as this is my back up. Get yourself an extra starter assembly.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Features
Cons: Heavy, Durability

Don't Waste Your Money
I have been using chain saws for 20 years . This one is the worst purchase I have made .
Used this thing 2 times . Once to cut up some downed logs and seemed to do ok but got plugged up bad and chain bar would not adjust and flew off a few times at full throttle (dangerous) . Second use was a standing full take down tree. When on its side to cut wedge it stalled out and would not start after that . With less than 2 hours of run time on this it will no longer start . Menards will not take it... more
Pros: Looks Good
Cons: Unreliable, Junk

Money Spent Better Elsewhere
Only had the saw for a month used it 3 times for about 20 minutes each time. Went to restart to finish the job, and the saw has never started again.

Mike,
We are sorry to hear of the issue with your saw. We would suggest contacting Remington in this case. In many cases with their handheld items, if it is looked at by a Remington/MTD servicing dealer, they can diagnose the problem and either fix or replace. Remington can be reached at 866-206-2707 or you can search for a servicing dealer via the link below.

Never Again
I used to think Sears was a good place to buy things. This Remington chainsaw was problems since day one. It's been hard to start, I only used it five times and now it needs the pull starter fixed. Don't waste your money.

No Start Even After Return For The Same Reason
I bought the saw at Lowes. I used it for 10 min. the first time, no problems. I tried to use it yesterday. After apx. 15 min. of use it died and would not start. I noticed the fuel plunger would not pump fuel and was empty. After a few hours I noticed fuel in the plunger. I primed it and it ran, for another 15 min. I took it back to Lowes they exchanged it no problem. Now I have the exact problem with the second saw. I rented a lift so I could take down a couple of trees over the weekend, now I... more

Great Saw...
I have red oaks..purchased from Menards for $249..this cuts like a dream.....

I had tried a Poulan Pro and this is so much better. Bear in mind this is not a $700 Husky or Stihl..but for around the home...great product
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again

Good
I use this saw every day, to cut dead Ash trees. Works great, the chain and bar run a little hot after an hour of cutting dried Ash logs. No saw will last very long if you don't put oil in it. LMAO, the customer servive is great. This saw out performed Poulan, Mcculloch and Solo any day.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
