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 1.0 out of 5.0 by gswd 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob 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.

The shipping time on this was satisfactory and it was easy enough to assemble. The plastic cover was cracked when I removed it from the box but since I live in a remote Alaskan village, the cost to return it didn't make sense so I'll deal with it. I've now used the saw a number of times to gather and buck up firewood and it seems to be working just fine for the task at hand.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by HahnSP 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.

Bought this when it was on sale for $149 and included case, long bar and a short bar.......great deal. The saw was replacing two OLD saws. I have had this for two years and have had no problems. To start clutch is in forward position, choke pulled out and trigger locked. Pull a few times and is should start. If not choke goes in and few more pulls and it starts every time. I only use Trufuel 40:1 gas and NEVER keep gas in the machine while not in use. I don't use this every day but reliable when I have needed.
