This saw is perfect for jobs around the backyard and for people without a clue about chainsaws. The no tools chain tightener and removal are excellent ideas that work as intended. I noticed a few reviews that said the oiler kept dumping oil while stored. Store it like the photo attached and there is no way it can drain from the bar as the hole is now pointing upwards.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TreeCutter Love this saw!
I have had this saw for 8+ years. It lasted through cutting down 5-italian cypress tress that had grown to about 14" in diameter. This saw made easy work out of all of them. Had to reorder a few parts after it gave out on tree number 6, but can't complain. Worked great after putting on the new part. Great value and great workhorse!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ScottB9220 Best $49 ever spent
I bought this little guy just to clean-up a few broken branches in the yard. A few days later a local tree cutter dropped of truck full of limbs and branches in the driveway. I decided to buy a Poulan 18" to tackle the wood pile and was very disappointed. I returned the first Poulan because it would not start nor idle and asked for an exchange. The 2nd Poulan was returned two days later for the same issue. But during this all I continued to use the little Homelite and become more impressed over the next few days as the Homelite continued to chew through the bigger branches and limbs. I have a few pieces left and I'll tackle those tomorrow. Very impressed with the UT43103. Very disappointed with the Poulan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BIGDaddy504 Great little chainsaw
I had two trees on my lot that i needed to cut down. The first chainsaw burnt up and didn't get much done. i seen this chainsaw and it looked like it could get the job done. It worked perfectly, i took the tip guard off and it cut like butter. i cut down two large trees and cut in movable chunks within a hour or so. When done i carved my initials and my wife's.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shannon Exceeded Expectations
Okay...so I bought the cheapest electric chainsaw I could find on the market. I only expected to use it once, maybe twice a year to trim some 2" branches. I didn't expect great results but thought as long as it cut and didn't vibrate apart or cut my hand or face off I'd get my money's worth.
First use it worked great. No problem with my Ponderosa-like 2 inch branches. A neighbor then borrowed it and said it worked great with 5' branches.
Yesterday a 30' Mesquite blew over against my house and it was time to see what this (not) Paul Bunyan chainsaw could do. I was extremely pleased with this saw. The tree trunk was about 10" and I had no problem. The chain came loose once (operator error) when I pinched it in a bottom cut. Getting it back on track was easy and took less than 2 minutes. A little common sense goes a long way when putting the chain back in place. I will add I have never owned a chainsaw before. The (I think) 8.5 lb. weight did not pose any problem.
For light use with an occasional need for a somewhat tougher use this is a GREAT little saw. I had to laugh. I was sure it would be something I MAY get a half dozen uses out of and that's about it. It absolutely saved my bacon cutting the Mesquite today. Do I think it could do what I did today on a regular basis? No, don't be stupid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCutter Great product, almost perfect.
Bought this chainsaw to cut down a dead orange tree in our backyard. I went for the 14 inch instead of the 16 inch after reading the reviews. This thing is a beast and it's so easy to use. I think I spent more time at the store choosing the chainsaws than what I needed for the tree. All I had to do was open the box, add the oil, and start cutting. Job was done in less than 15 minutes. At the end of the job, we could see some oil sprayed on the ground, but that's not a big problem to me.
The only problem I have with this purchase is with Home Depot and not the product (That's why I still give it 5 stars). I bought it new in the store, only to open it and find it used. You can see scratches and oil on the saw itself. But since the saw works perfectly, I am not planning to return it for a new one. But had I known this is a used one, I could've spent less money on a refurbished one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phoenix This chainsaw works perfectly!
Understanding that this is an electric chain saw I did not expect the power of a gas saw. That said, this 14" 9 amp saw works perfectly well. You have to be a little more gentle is all...
