Answer: 
I'm not sure if you are asking how well it works, or if you are asking technically how is the oiler driven. The oiler is driven off of the crankshaft behind the drive sprocket. In my experience and other reviewers, it errs on the side of heavy oiling. I prefer this. My newer Stihls are stingy with bar oil, making the bar/chain wear more than it should when cutting wet wood.

So, I think it works well on this saw. HD sells Echo bar oil for $11/gal (April 2015) so just fill 'er up when you gas up and it will run great.

Hi rjn619,

There is a diaphragm pump that applies oil from the chain lubricant reservoir to the bar and chain. The port is located near the drive sprocket, under the side cover of the chain. As the chain turns, oil is deposited onto it.

Hi rjn619,

There is a diaphragm pump that applies oil from the chain lubricant reservoir to the bar and chain. The port is located near the drive sprocket, under the side cover of the chain. As the chain turns, oil is deposited onto it.
This is an automatic pump that is metered as to require refilling at the same time as the fuel tank. If your oil reservoir is still full when the fuel needs refilling, the pump is not working properly and should be addressed.
This automatic oiler will cause residual oil on the chain and bar, so oil that drips off of the saw during storage is to be expected.
Thank you for asking,

Hi Rick,
No. This chainsaw uses traditional nuts and bolts to secure the bar to the saw. A unique tool, called a Scrench is supplied with the saw, and we offer that tool separately, as well. Find it at this address:

Answer: 
In addition to what the Husquverna Expert says, make sure that the saw is warmed up. On a 70F degree day, it takes about a minute or two of idling to be fully warmed. If not, the motor will bog when you rev it. That is normal, and any 2-stroke saw will behave like this prior to warmup. It's really not a bug, either, because you SHOULD warm it up before cutting, for the health and longevity of the Read More
In addition to what the Husquverna Expert says, make sure that the saw is warmed up. On a 70F degree day, it takes about a minute or two of idling to be fully warmed.

It's really not a bug, either, because you SHOULD warm it up before cutting, for the health and longevity of the motor.
At the risk of stating the obvious, make sure that your choke is off (blue lever all the way in) before trying to rev it up. I'll second the fresh gas comment, too. Gasoline is not what it used to be, and it goes stale faster now. I buy the canned pre-mix gas (At $6/qt). Expensive, but worth it. If you have a lot of cutting to do, buy the premix for your first and last tank of the day, and cut most of the day on your own mix. But be sure to start on pre-mix, and leave only pre-mix in the tank when you put the saw away.
Failing the above advice, then, yes, the carb may need a simple mixture screw adjustment. Mine was perfect out of the box. I am at Sea-level (which makes a big difference). Higher altitude requires a leaner mixture setting.

It sounds like it may need a carburetor adjustment or it may be flooded. You may also make sure you are using fresh gas. If you require service you can go to the Poulan Pro website to locate a warranty service center in your local area.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 157 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great chain saw for the money. Starts easily, Cuts great, clean, seems durable. I recommend this chain saw Came preassembled with enough oil mix for 1 gallon of gas. You need to buy your own bar and chain oil. The chain saw started up great and ran strong. If you follow the starting directions the thing starts up perfectly. I did have to adjust up the chain tension a few times so far in 2 days of use but that is to be expected. The chain is defiantly duller than when I first got it but I feel as though I cut a reasonable amount of wood before the chain started to show any signs of dulling. Will have to look into sharping it. The 20 inch bar is pretty long and was plenty long for everything I have to cut. It did fell and buck some pretty large tress 10-18 inches in diameter. The carrying case is great. Runs very clean with very little smoke. There is a little more smoke when you open her up to go through something large but that is totally expected. It starts to get a little heavy with a lot of use but I think this is due mainly to the size. The anti-vibe handles work great as you feel very little vibration while your using it. The chain tension is pretty easy to adjust if you follow the directions the first time. I would highly recommend this saw. July 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pulan Pro 20 in chain saw had bought it used to cut a 75 ft oak, strong but i had to return twice they stop running , but i know what the problem is its not tuned good , and you cant buy the tool, so this time i bought the 2 year home depot warranty so if its going to have the same issue they can adjust the carbs at the store , realy!! Husquvarna , i love your stuff but if your going start not checking the guilty control don,t sell it ,, , i bought it because i know thats its a husquvarna in a pulan pro make up ,, over all its a tough chainsaw ,, i like still but it needs to come with a carb tool ,, i dont recommend this to a pro , but if your like me and need lots of power ones in a wile its good , get the higher end lighter stuff , but i like a bang for my buck .. this has got it ,,, April 9, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice saw, decent price I decided to wait a while to write a review on this saw. Right out of the box, it worked very well. It started right up and ran like a champ. I use it vary sparingly as I went from burning wood to burning pellets. However, I do use it on occasion. This past week we had a couple very bad storms and we had a pretty big oak tree fall in the back yard. After the saw sitting for about two years, I got it out and it started on the second pull! I added new fuel and bar oil and did not have any problems at all. It handled everything I tried to cut, up to about 16" diameter. I did however have some issues restarting when it was hot. But I'm chalking that up to operator error. All in all, I think this is an excellent saw for the price. I recommend it highly. August 1, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Chainsaw The chainsaw exceeded my expectations. I read some of the other reviews and find that some of negatives mentioned have not been present with the saw that I bought. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by $199.00 For the price and a 20" blade this machine is awesome. I read a lot of reviews...and was really on the fence about purchasing it. The blade itself was a concern...the store display had a Oregon blade. So when I first left the store the first thing I did was checked the blade and it had a Oregon blade...thought cool let's go try it. I took some other others advice and added a little more oil to the gas 3.2 oil one gal gas. I went to 4oz one gal gas. Filled up the tank and let machine run for 15 mins. Had to adjust the throttle set point...prolly because of oil/gas combo. The adjustment screw is very accessible. (Figured I can adjust later if need be) okay cutting time. This machine cut wonderfully. Very impressed. Also very glad I bought it. Great machine. July 25, 2016
