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.

Customer Reviews

18 in. 45cc Heavy Duty Gas Chainsaw is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 167.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerfull:) Simple yet powerful. Somewhat bulky but starts consistantly. Must be a strong guy/gal to start and operate it. This is for professionals only. Homeowner should get lighter saw for safety reasons. Cuts through trees like a knife through butter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bluemax !8 chainsaw iF YOU WORK LONGER THAN 15 MINUTES IT WON'T START I tried 2 returned first one because once you worked it and it was warm IT WOULD NOT START. I am in the process of returning the 2nd one for the same reason. .I went to Consumer Report and found out they also have founf out it is very hard to start. ..I feel Bluemax chainsaw floods it self when warm. If I take it to the shop take spark plug out clean plug and pass a lighter over the hole for spark plug ,I get poof ,I know it's dry. Put it back together and behold it will start . I had a friend borrow it and I watched if, thinking I might not pull the start hard or long enough, the results were the same as mine .When hot will not start because it is flooded. I worked then shut it off went to restart it and you can pull from now to DOOMS DAY it will not stat. Let it set over night , it starts like should . If you plan on working most of time just don't shut it off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware: Home Depot Sending Used Items as New I placed an order for this item online with delivery to my local store. I went to pick up the item and noticed a large oil stain on the bottom of the box. So before signing for the delivery an associate opened the box and it was determined that due to the amount of dirt and debris on the housing and chain gear, along with the bar oil tank being filled and gas in the tank, it was determined that this was a used and returned product. Of course I refused the delivery and they processed a refund in the store. Now I need to wait for the refund to process onto my card before I can purchase a chainsaw IN THE STORE to assist me in cleaning up my property after Hurricane Matthew.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Saw For the price this saw is a work horse. It oils chain well and worked all day. I found the chain to be fine although we bought a spare. Ran ours on on 91 octane non ethanol at 40:1 using the pint jug they supply. Saw had plenty of power on our trees of around 14 inch diameter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad purchase I ordered this saw online. Could not get it to crank. Called company customer service.. Followed their instructions. Removed the spark plug and tried to crank it (I know. But that's what I was told t do). I replaced the plug. and finally got it to start. I cut some wood for about 15 minutes. Took a break and could not crank it again. For the next 2 days I tried every way to start the thing til I had a blister on my finger trying to start it. So I returned it to the store and used the refund to buy a real chainsaw and now I have no problem. Maybe I just got a bad one. But want waste my time like that again.
