20 in. 55cc 2-Cycle Gas Chainsaw with Carry Case is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 10.

This unit is great for the average homeowner that uses a chain saw a few times a year. This is by no means for professionals using it everyday. The buttons, caps and switches all feel a little cheap. But the chainsaw starts consistently use-after-use and has plenty of power. The storage case is a big plus. The bottom line is I only paid $200 (incl shipping) for this product and feel it is a great value at that price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of garbage I had this saw for two seasons. The first year it was in repair for six weeks to replace the pulley. The second year the saw would not start. I took it to one of their authorized dealers who concluded that the gas\oil ratio damaged the machine. I told the representative that this gas has not harmed any of my other 2 cycle machines, which have hundreds of hours on them, while this one has not even 10. It didn't matter they won't fix it under the warranty. I will NEVER buy another product they make. GARBAGE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cub cadet 20 inch saw Do not buy this chain saw. We were hesitant after reading a few of the reviews.but wondered if it was user error. We did everything buy the book. The chainsaw took about 20 pulls before a shacky start. Then after it cut off, it took a long time to restart, each time. After the 1st tank of gas, it never restarted. Then the pull fell off...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Second Thoughts Last year I wrote a review on this chainsaw two months into my use. Now after a year and a half I would like to add other issues with the saw and have changed my opinion. 1. Any time the saws sits on your bench it will leak chain oil. I spoke with the dealer and they said it was "normal", and that you have to have a drip pan under it. It is not just the oil off your bar, but the whole chamber. So if you don't want a mess use a drip pan or drain your chamber. PS. This is a first time having an automatic oiler. This is news to me about automatic oilers. The manual does say you should expect "some" leakage. 2. The pull has broken twice after a period of being idle (4 months). The cord remains intact but it no longer turns the engine. The dealer has repaired it, but it appears that the inner workings has long term problems. The repair is only a consolation when you are ready to work and you pull the cord and it goes limp. A 3 year warrantee only lasts 3 years. What happens after 3 years? One big headache or expense. 3. Although minor, the plugs for the gas and chain oil are a pain to get off - the oil cap may need a little prying with a screwdriver to help it off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It did not last long. I've been using this saw, which I bought new 3 months ago to help clean up a newly purchased property, for maybe 4 or 5 gas fills. Then I broke the chain when I got it bound in a tree I was taking down. The replacement chain that came with the saw was the wrong size. The chain packaging said 20 inches but it was about three links too short and the width was .058 when it should be .050. Thanks to the local hardware store guy he assembled a new chain from parts he had in the shop because I was unable to find .050 chain. Once I got it back it ran great until the last few times I ran it it was difficult to start. It would fire off but then die within a second or two before I could even get to the throttle. Even in the beginning it was difficult to start. Following the directions on the primer bulb and choke I would pull 15 - 20 times, sometimes even more, before it would finally start. Right now the saw will not run at all. I know the gas is the proper mix. When I press the gas bulb primer it feels like I'm pumping air and not gas, it just seems squishy unlike originally. For the money its probably a good saw but in the future I think I'll stick with Husquvarna or Stihl. In all fairness I should add that perhaps a contributing factor to my negative review may be my lack of knowledge in the proper care of a saw, I do not know.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value The chain saw was modeled after the Eager Beaver I had. I looked at all the other brands, but the Cub gave me the most for the dollar - largest engine, bar, warranty, and auto oil. When you read reviews on saws, one of the chief issues was getting the saw started. If you followed the directions which is on the saw, it will start. The issue becomes the warm-up period. It should run for 30-60 second before your release the throttle, and if you don't wait you will drown it. They don't tell what to do if is does conk out, but like most equipment you get use to it and know how ti get it restarted - set the throttle and pull. Once it is warmed it it is easy to restart. Some other issues: 1, Run-Start button is stiff, 2. nuts to remove and set chain were factory tight - it bent the tool that came with the unit, but once you crack it it is not a issue, 3. The chain needs to be tie to the bar or it will pop off, 4. it also took a while to figure how to put the brake assembly back after restting the chain. It has plenty of power and cuts easily - I recently cut (knotty) red oak, box elder, and ash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Engine & Startup Procedure Needs Re-Engineering Bought the chainsaw online, & received it directly at my residence in only a few days! FAST shipping!! Came with a nice carry case and even a small quantity of Chain Bar Oil & 2-Cycle Engine Oil for initial fuel tank filling/mixing. A few days after receiving it, I sat down and read through the entire manual for familiarization, filled both reservoirs, did the starting procedure ( a real pain), and finally got it to start. Engine idled VERY roughly and died frequently during usage, when releasing the throttle trigger. Cut really great through massive 28" diameter oak tree trunks as if cutting through hot butter though! GREAT power!! Ran the initial tank of fuel dry while cutting felled trees, refilled fuel and bar oil reservoirs. Engine absolutely REFUSED to re-start after the first tank of fuel ran out. Took out the spark plug, and it was bone dry. Wasn't getting fuel into the combustion chamber, even after choking & priming. (I'm a small gas engine & automotive mechanic.) Took it back to the local store for a refund.
