Answer: 
If you are looking for a replacement chain for your homelite, you do not have to use brand specific; Ie, I changed out my 16' bar and chain on my homelite chainsaw with an 18" power care bar and chain...most of the packages indicate what saws the bar and chain are compatible with...some even indicate the exact model numbers of the saws they will work with.

Answer: 
Write down the model number on your chainsaw and take it with you to Home Depot. The various chain packages fit several models, and there are several model numbers on the package. You should be able to find yours on one of these. If not, there are HD personnel always willing to help.

Answer: 
Usually the chain tightness is controlled by the operator. And the chain is normally tightened to the point of just snug, and by lifting the chain from the bar 1/8" is a good rate. Also stay away from small limbs and loose brush.

Answer: 
Either your chain is too loose, or you are twisting the bar against the cut. When you are cutting in a perpendicular position, you can only move it in the cut in an up and down motion. As for the manual, you can get it on line. Put the brand name and model number in your search engine, along with the word, "manual" and you should be able to find the manuat to print it out.

Answer: 
You may not have the chain around the sprocket on correctly. Make sure the inside teeth of the chain match up to the sprocket indentations. Or, you don't have the tensions tab inserted correctly in the chain bar. This would make the chain come off because you wont be able to apply the right amount of tension to the chain when adjusting it.

Answer: 
The manufacturer says bar and chain oil. However in cold weather that stuff likes to gel, another manufacturer says SAE 30 or simple 10W30 will work. However they mention increased oil consumption and possible excessive wear to the bar and chain. -- Applies only to electric chainsaws. Never use motor oil in a gas saw unless you're in real trouble.

All brands of chainsaw bar / chain oil will work in any type of chainsaw.
There can be a debate as to whether the performance between the bargain and premium brands justifies their price difference.
These special chain oils have a higher viscosity and additives to help the oil stay in place better and not be flung off by centrifugal force as quickly as the chain travels around the bar.

Not recommended, but in an emergency you could temporarily use automotive motor oil. This would likely void your warranty. And you should understand your bar and chain would wear more quickly.
Better lubrication will extend the service life of your bar and chain.
Its much cheaper to buy chain oil than to buy new bars and chains more frequently.
Chain oil can be found in stores near the chain saws. Read Less

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 163 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money. Can't even trim a hedge!! The chain bar is to flexible. The oiler doesn't work, the chain won't stay on no matter how you adjust it. Noisey and rattles. I RETURNED IT IN LESS THAN 2 (TWO) HOURS. I bought a Ryobi pole saw instead. Much better. Same money! August 17, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by This darn lil saw I gave this Electric saw an average rating, because of a couple of items. First the cord attachment area is too small for the right sized cord to fit in to the handle. Then the so called anti-kickback protector on th etip of the bar kept hanging up on small limbs and causing the chain to come off, after several times ,I removed the tip cover and had no more problems. The Adjustment part is a good idea as I did not need tools to remove the chain and clean / replace it several times it came off. I would not recomend it to a novice user. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First chainsaw purchase I needed a chainsaw for small jobs around the house, but I've never used one before. I didn't want anything too heavy since I am getting older lol. Only used this a little bit so far but love it, super easy to get ready to use and fairly lightweight as well August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasantly surprised with performance Purchased this electric chainsaw to save myself a bunch of money! Had a rather large tree (24 in. diameter trunk) and branches that ranged from 12 inches and under. This chainsaw did the job! The 12 amps was more than adequate and allowed me to use normal house current. The instructions recommend a 50 ft 14 Guage power cord which I purchased to go along with the saw. The chain held up very nice requiring I sharpen just once during several hours of cutting. If you want to purchase a backup chain I recommend a Oregon 56S. As mentioned by another reviewer, I also removed the tip guard. Also aka sure you check the chain oil reservoir frequently. For the price, this was a great deal as opposed to paying a tree surgeon 700 dollars. July 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chainsaw I needed A branch fell from a tree and I needed a saw. I didn't need a gas chainsaw so this was a good value however I do wish it had about 4 more amps to the motor. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to use chainsaw I have used my Homelite 16" electric chainsaw for a few months now. I use the chainsaw to cut logs and branches from around the yard mostly hard wood Red Oak, Maple and others. I find the saw easy to use it is quite has plenty of power for logs up to 15" to 16". The Chain is easy to adjust and the auto chain oiler works well, easy to fill, no driping of oil on bench after use. I have never had the chain jump off the chain bar. One con I wish that the chain had a brake auto stop when you let go of the trigger. A big pro not having to mix and store gas, no smell, no noise, very easy to use. Pete in North Carolina. January 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for small jobs - light duty-occasional use Similar to what others concluded, this saw is super convenient for occasional light duty use. I judged the 16" blade to be ideal given the nature of cutting this saw is designed for. Perfect for clean up after a storm or winds. I ruled out cordless because the battery would not be ready after sitting. And batteries are expensive when replacement is required. I was cutting 10-12" limbs today, then sectioning them in firewood size pieces. Light weight and easy to handle. Quiet - no ear protection required. As for comments regarding the chain falling off, I noticed my blade tension adjust knob became loose due to vibration and use. With that knowledge, after every 3-4 cuts I check it and give it a quarter to one third turn. If you don't, it will get loose and the chain will fall off as others noted. Not a deal breaker for me, just something one should remember to do. Meanwhile the manufacturer needs to address this by re-engineering the blade tension knob so it remains where it is set. A lock nut type of set up??? Mfg should also include a starter pint of chain oil. Speaking of which, I noticed when holding saw at 90 degrees to cut a small tree, oil trickles out of the hole in the filler cap. Simple things the mfg can address to make a good product great. FYI I own a 16" gas chain saw but after sitting since last season the primer bulb was shot and the repair was going to cost almost as much as this electric saw. August 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is an awesome little chainsaw I purchased this chainsaw with the intention of only using it for brush cutting and very small trees (2-3 in in diameter)...well...this little trooper proved its worth and then some...able to topple 80 ft pine trees 10 -12 in in diameter and 40-50 foot sweetgums in various diameters. It is very easy and comfortable to use and powerful...I have not used my gas powered Poulan in several months because this little beast proved time and time again that it can handle even the biggest jobs. It is very quiet and lightweight...I will never by another electric chainsaw other than this one again. After a year of heavy use and changing the bar and chain to an 18", the brushes in the motor have been stretched to far...I will be replacing the brushes and continue to use this chainsaw...very reliable...I highly recommend it July 16, 2016
