Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Superstar I purchased this saw at home depot, would not start. I returned the saw for an exchange . The new saw started and ran for about two pick-up loads of wood, then died and would not restart. The saw has spark but will not start. I'm going to try a hotter spark plug, because the saw is no good the way it is now. I suggest you buy a name brand saw . A saw should work when you need it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Great chain saw!
I had reservations about this saw but bought it anyway. I'm glad I did. I have a cabin in the Redwoods in California and don't want to pay $400 for a cord of firewood when there's fallen trees around. It performes much better than I expected for a lower priced saw. There's an idle adjustment and an auto oiler for the chain. Love this thing!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Novice Have not had any problems so far. Started it about 5 different times with no problems. Easily cut the tree up.

The chainsaw started with no problems, ran well with no additional adjustments, and made short work of a large diameter tree which landed on my garage roof during a windstorm. For my occasional use, this saw does the job and the price was right. Given the need, I would do it again.

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.
