Saw started on 3rd pull and ran just fine for 15-20 minutes. The next morning it would not start. Pulled the starter rope until I was blue in the face, and it would not start. Returned saw and received a credit which was applied to purchase of a better one. Gave this saw a one star rating because there is no minus option available. I would not recommend this saw to anyone. Invest a little more and buy a name brand saw-- it will make life a lot easier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nellbob Great saw!
Used this saw to cut down two trees and saw them up. One tree was a 30" weeping willow and the saw just barely had enough blade length to cut thru from both sides.
Saw had plenty of power and started up easily every time. I ran five tanks of gas and bar oil through it on the day I used it.
The only issue I had was the kill switch is very close to my right thumb when using the saw, and I accidently turned it off at least once on each tank of gas while cutting.
I have big hands and was using gloves so this may not be an issue for everyone.
It also came with a file that I used when I was done to touch up the teeth.
Nice piece of equipment

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by professor Poor instructions
The instructions were very poor. The chainsaw would not start. I contacted Customer Service at the company, but they were not helpful. Took it in to the local Home Depot. Rental Center salesperson started it and said that there was probably air in the carburetor and it was flooded. I pointed out that there were two different sets of starting instructions. Seems like a good machine but there needs to be better instructions and a warning about the first time it starts.

This chainsaw started on the third pull, ran for a few minutes, then stopped; I could not get it to start again after about 1/2 hour of triple-checking, then with engine starter. I'd tightened the chain before starting, and i could see it loosen while it was running, so I tried to turn the screw to re-tighten it in between failed restart attempts -- the head bored out, it's not removeable, and it's too small and in too tight a space to try to cut into it -- so even if I could start it again, the chain will remain dangerously loose forever.
Polaris discovered plastic can replace many metal parts, but crucial parts like a chain tightening screw must be able to stand up to regular use; this chainsaw got half of that formula down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by prof Excellent buy
The saw is light and very easy to handle. It is ideal for light work such as trimming limbs. The only drawback to mine is that it won't restart while the engine is hot.

Cuts down small/intermediate trees "like a hot knife thru butter".

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mesh If you counted on only getting 4 uses on the saw, buy it!
First use was fine. Tried to restart. Nothing after 4th use. Now won't start at all. Changed spark plug, tried other things. Nothing. Bad purchase.
