Answer: 
40:1 is fine. It won't hurt to have a bit more oil and have it 25:1. I usually put a bit more oil than required. Oil hurts nothing but lubricates. So, a little more of it will just help give an added protection to the engine.

Answer: 
I am almost certain I use 50:1 for mine. But DON'T mix it yourself. If you do then it will probably clog your carburetor which will not be under warranty. I buy the premixed at Home Depot and it seems to work great. http://www.homedepot.com/p/TruSouth-Trufuel-50-1-Pre-Oil-Mix-6525638/202532877

Answer: 
I would recommend you buy the premix at Home Depot (or elsewhere) and not to mix your own. Otherwise you could end up with a clogged carburetor not under warranty like I did.

Read the manual. This is a pretty standard 2 cycle mixture. You can also buy the small cans of oil that you mix with I think one gallon on gas. Ask the clerk.

Answer: 
the ratio is, well, 40 to 1 by volume. Simplest way is to purchase your oil in small plastic bottles available in most hardware stores and places where chain saws, weedeaters, and such, are sold. Typically the bottles are of two sizes. One size, 3.2 (fluid) ounces, produces a fairly standard 40:1 ratio when added to ONE gallon (128 fluid ounces) of gas [128/3.2 = 40].

Answer: 
Exactly what it says..40 parts gas, one part oil. Use 3.2 ounces per gallon of gas. That should do it. If you put a little bit more oil than is required or needed, that is fine. Its more lubrication, and that is what you need for those small engines. Peace

Answer: 
This saw actually comes with a measuring container. You fill it up to the correct line and then add oil to the 40 to 1 line. One part oil to 40 parts gasoline. Many two stroke oil containers have a measuring device on the bottle so you can easily create a gallon of mixed gas. Make sure to use two stroke oil also. This will be clearly labeled on the container you buy.

Answer: 
It does not. I've only used it one time and initial startup of a dry chainsaw is never super easy. I'm hoping that my next start up experience is a bit short. Initial startup took about 8 cycles of choke, short pulls and long pull.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 424 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2 strikes your out. I went though 2 of these saws. The first one lasted about 3 hours. After it died I took the cover off the air filter and noticed that the filter wasn't seated properly from the factory. After 3 hours of sucking sawdust, if gave out. Fortunately I had just purchased it and returned it for another one. The 2nd one ran for about 5 minutes. It appears to over heat and starts to bog down and seize. Unfortunately I didn't take it out of the box until over a year later after the warranty had expired. Bye bye $199. I should have just ponied uf for a Stihl in the first place. It's also an oily mess. If you leave any oil in the oiler reservoir it leaks out all over everything. August 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beware I bought this chainsaw off of the Home Depot deal of the day. My old chainsaw had bit the dust after about 6 years of use and this one was very affordable and the reviews at the time looked pretty good. I felt the 1 year warranty was pretty good. I ordered the unit on 1/21/16 and it shipped timely. I opened the unit but did not need it until today. Last weekend I followed the start up instructions and the unit started up but it took numerous pulls for it to start. I also noticed that the chain loosened up by just starting and running it so I readjusted it. Restarted and readjusted it again. It also appeared to be leaving too much oil when I would sit it down so I read the instructions and adjusted the bar oil screw down as low as it would go. There was no cutting done last weekend and I started it 3 or 4 times for a total of maybe 2 minutes. Today I grabbed the carry case to do my first job and oil was leaking out the case when I moved it. When I opened the case the bottom was standing in oil. I opened the oil reservoir and it had a little left in it. I called Home Depot and they have a 30 day return policy. I called the manufacturer and got their voicemail and will call them back Monday. Now I'm headed out to but a name brand unit to do the work that needs to be done this weekend. I feel this is just probably a too good to be true price range. I will post with how the manufacturer handles the repair or refund. Perhaps this was just a lemon unit but now I do have the pleasure of going and paying retail for a good unit plus I've got the pleasure of dealing with this one. I've probably owned 5 or 6 chainsaws before, but I'm only 53 so perhaps when I grow up I'll learn that it is true that you get what you pay for! April 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied customer I bought this saw after reading several dozen reviews. I didn't expect a Stihl quality saw but I have no serious complaints. The chain did stretch more than a name brand would & I knew I would need a new, better chain very soon. I expected that from reading the reviews. The saw starts with no problems as long as you follow the instructions. The only unexpected issue has been the chain brake. It accidentally engaged & wouldn't reset. I had to disassemble the saw & still couldn't fix it so I just left it off. The saw performs just fine. If you need a chainsaw several hours a week buy a Stihl but if you only need one 4 or 5 times a year like me then this is good choice. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool I WAS sceptical at first but I have made many cuts on some 6 inch branches with no issues , a good value for the money , recommended August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2-IN-1 20 IN. AND 14 IN. 45CC GAS CHAINSAW COMBO WITH BLOW MOLDED CASE this saw is a very good value. the cutting speed of this saw is great. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Buy Had many saws before but by far this is better than a pullon even better than my craftsman. easy to assemble and starts right up everytime so far. Used it to cut some big old dry red hearted mesquite and cut through like butter. And it doesn't leak oil when not in use. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome!!!!!! Very good product love it very well built easy to start heavy duty switches extremely powerful well balanced cannot say enough good about it!!!! July 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Strong Saw with LOTS of problems Great price at $169. I read the reviews and hoped that the problems others found were just "defects". I tried it and it was great in terms of power. Cut into the stump like butter. Unfortunately, I could not finish the job. It leaked oil from day one. It stopped working by the second time I tried using it with no reason that I can tell... lots of gas left and lots of chain oil. BTW, it does NOT have a visible chain oil level so you have to check every once in a while or "wait till smoke comes out per their instructions"... who would ever want to do that??? How hard is it to put in a clear plastic window like all the other saws I have seen? The pull cord to start is is VERY glitchy and, because the saw is light in weight, I had to hold it down with my hand and one foot since the cord was VERY hard to pull and when you pull the whole saw wanted to go with it... and that is in the hands of a fairly strong 250 lbs man... Bottom line is, the product would have been a great one if there was quality control behind it but it is junk the way it is now. All the complaints from others here are quite true. Returned to HD and got the ELECTRIC Black and Decker due to the high ratings. Worked just as well in terms of cutting power for my need (cutting down a stupid stump in the yard). July 26, 2016
