Customer Questions & Answers

I am a Veteran, if I purchacse this saw, how do I get the 10% discount I normally get when making a purchase at the store?

Asked by: Pedo
Yes sir, you do. 10% to Veteran's everyday all year long, although it's not advertised much until Memorial Day / Veteran's day. Often the cashier will ask to see your military I.D., so bring it if you have it and thank you for your service and God bless.

Quick start CDI ignition

Does this mean it has an electric start, meaning you do not have to pull a cord?
Asked by: Person1
No you have to pull cord.. but it is very easy to start

18 in. 45cc Heavy Duty Gas Chainsaw is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 195.

Not to heavy{manageable}, very low vibration while cutting and most of all it starts REAL easy. I kid you not it started on the 2nd pull after set up was done. That's what I like. I have nothing bad at all honestly to say about my new saw. I put this saw right up there with the top name brands. I'm in the middle of taking down a 45ft Maple tree in my front yard. So far its cost me 119$ for the saw and $195 for a boom rental to cut the high branches down. $314 is a lot better than $850 for a tree Co to take down and haul away. Just one more section to finish this weekend. Money well spent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value for the price This chainsaw does a phenomenal job for the price you pay, especially when compared to other similarly priced brands. I highly recommend this for the average homeowner who won't be using it extensively. However, this is not the product for frequent, extended or professional use. It seems to use more fuel and oil than the more expensive brands and would not be cost effective in the long run. The chain also requires frequent tightening which would be problematic for the professional. However, for my personal home-use, this is a great saw at a great price and I would recommend it strongly over similarly priced brands.

Maybe I was unlucky with this chain saw, but it just did not start from the beginning (I am not a novice with chain saws, and I was using fresh gasoline mixture and everything was done according to manual). When I managed to start it after 20 min, it ran great for 10 min, then stopped and I was not able to re-start it (yes, I know how to start a hot chain saw). This chain saw does not have manual fuel pump which gives you less control to start it. The chain saw went back to store after I was completely exhausted unsuccessfully trying to re-start it during 30 min.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel like a Boss when using this Chainsaw I needed firewood, and big firewood. The 18 inch is the perfect size, Starts everytime with no problem. Cuts quick, lots of shavings, powerful, not too loud, Chain tension needs adjusting before using, Chain oil needs filled with each fueling. Cuts up trees fast, never gets stuck in log. Chain Brake works well, 1st purchased Homelite 14 inch chainsaw, It felt like a toy, barely good for around the house stuff. Purchase on sale at $129, missed the $99 sale. Online Customer service price matched with Sears at $115. Best purchase i've made in a long time. Does not come with oil, I purchased Trufuel 40:1 so to start cutting right away without having go buy oil, gas, then mixing.

I slowly went through the proper procedure to assemble and it cranked it 4 pulls. The ONLY things you MUST know is to tighten chain every time it gets loose on first 4 or 5 uses. It WILL loosen up and need retightening. Use as directed 40:1 ration gas/oil (which is easy because they send the mixture bottle with the purchase! ). Make sure you keep chain oil in the saw and you will have no problems. I have used it several times now (at least 10) and it has started every time I tried (with the exception of one time I pulled for about 8 times before I realized I forgot to flip the on switch to the on position). If you follow the simple instructions and take care of it and it is a wonderful purchase! I highly recommend this item!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even a grandma can start it......and use it! This is my first time ever using a chain saw. I am a 54 year old grandma clearing part of back acre for grand children.Works great,starts right up and it is light weight.I had to put chain on once and tighten it. The instructions are pretty self explanatory.This Grandma is getting the job done! Wish I could post a picture.:) Ms.Dee Castroville ,Tx
