I would strongly recommend you avoid this saw. I've had two go bad, one out of the box. Here's the story. My wife actually bought the first one. She didn't tell me about it, but she thought we needed to have one around for hurricane season, so she bought it and stashed it away. We had a small tree fall down and we needed to cut it up, so she brought it out. Cool, I thought, so proceeded to cut up the tree. Maybe two hours work. Near the end, it suddenly stopped and wouldn't start again. Took it to a repair place. They called back a few weeks later with it fixed - engine blew. But they had submitted it for a warranty claim and to Ryobi's credit, they were sending a new one. So I kept the new one and the dealer kept the repaired one. Fast forward four years - I don't really have need for a chainsaw. But we moved to a wooded lot and now I do. So with much trepidation I took the saw out of the box today. The repair place told me to run 40:1 rather than the recommended 50:1, said Ryobi had many similar problems on their saws. So I mixed and fueled up, added chain lube, and tried to start it up. Won't run. In fact, it doesn't seem to turn over when I pull the start cord. Feels like something mechanical inside, either the starter or engine. So I'm out of warranty and out of luck, even though this saw just came out of the box. What a total waste of money and time. Don't buy a Ryobi chainsaw, ever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nickname works very well
I have a 40cc model with a 18" bar. I have had it 10 years. Keep good gas and bar oil in it and it just goes. This weekend I had to fall 3 trees. The biggest was 24" in diameter. The chain smoked but the motor just ran. Considering it cost me $89, I am very pleased with it and had to share this.

The saw was difficult to start and on the first day of use, the chain came off and bent so that it would not go back on. I can't find a replacement chain at Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James Ryobi 2 in. 46cc Chain Saw - Dependable
I had this chain saw for about 5 years now and it keeps working each time I used it. I had to cut a big tree into pieces the first time I used it so I did not have to hire an expensive tree cutter. It may take a few pull after a long time of not using it but after that it is easy to start just make sure you put fresh gasoline. Overall I recovered the cost I paid for this unit $199 at the time for the first two summers by not hiring tree cutter. It is dependable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigRed Real workhorse for the price.
I have used this chainsaw for about 3 years now and have been extremely impressed with it's performance. I recently took down a 35 ft. black walnut tree that was 26" diameter at the base and cut it up with this saw. I also used it with an attachment to rip cut slabs (with a rip chain) and it performed well.
The only thing is I would like to see a beefier pull assembly. This one is plastic and i have had to replace but it's not expensive and is easy to replace. Still going strong!!

First, I will preface with; I love Ryobi power tools. I have many of their drills, saws and other lithium battery operated power tools. They are great and I have never had any issues with them. The chainsaw was very rough running and difficult to get started. I have used many chainsaws before and know how to properly use them, this one was bad. 20 plus pulls to get a brand new chainsaw, with brand new non-ethanol, properly mixed gas running is ridiculous. Then the chain came off, which is normal, but once I put it back on (the correct direction) the chain was locked as somehow the bar no longer allowed the chain to rotate around it, just from the chain coming off. I returned it.
