Bought the 18" home lite around a year ago and used it a total of 2 hours max. Won't run and shop told me it needs a new carburetor. Total pile of junk. Please buy another brand and save yourself a headache.

This is the second Homelite Chainsaw that I've purchased. The first one lasted several years. The price was excellent and even has extra accessories included.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cosmo712 decent saw
The saw was ordered to help me clear some tree damage caused by recent storms, I initially had trouble starting the saw, but it was my fault for not priming it correctly, at worst it now cranks on the second or third pull. I used it quite a bit the first day and plan on sharpening the chain, but found it quicker to switch to the extra one included.Since then I have used it quite a bit and have had no issues, I used to work in the hardware industry and I know Husky, Stihl and several others are better made, but also designed for daily use. I typically cut for 5-10 minutes and haul while it cools. I have not had any heat related issues. I would grant it 5 stars but my case came in broken up, (shippers fault, says "fragile" in big letters on the side of the box) and it has been several weeks since I contacted HD about it. The saw works so I can't be too upset.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Upsetconsumer 18" chainsaw very cheap
I used this chainsaw 3 or 4 times and it seized I sent it in for repair they declined to repair under warranty saying it was used to hard or improper oil gas mixture. I used only home depot 2 cycle oil and bar and chain oil so that speaks volumes to the quality of the product ...don't buy this one save your money...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Manuel 1 time use
This chainsaw should be sold as a 1 time use at a cheaper price i bought a 16" after cutting a couple of branches overheated and started smoking after that it wouldnt start so i upgraded to a 18" thinking it was going to be better and there wasnt anymore 16"
Finished the tree and drained the gas i also turned it on and let it die on its own. Tried using it months later started fine but once i tried to cut a branch the motor sounded like it was about to die 10 min after trying chainsaw overheaded and i couldnt use it anymore.
I ended up buying a used poulan pro so far so good...
Anybody interested in a homelite chainsaw for parts?

I've owned two Homelite gas chainsaws over the past 40 years and they have always run & cut well. Proper maintenance & fresh fuel are the key! My latest, a 42cc W/18" bar works great! I got a carb adjusting tool on the internet because from the factory the carbs are adjusted a little too lean to run well (Government Regs). Good saw, great price!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rick49 Piece of garbage
I got the homelite 18 inch chainsaw last fall and used it once. I had a small tree fall this winter. When I tried to use this product to cut it up it constantly stalls and was only able to make two cuts. This saw is completely useless. Save your money and agrevation and buy anything but this product. It's complete garbage.
