is this refurbished, can you get a carry case?

is this refurbished, can you get a carry case?
Asked by: kino
This is a NEW chainsaw, not refurbished. NATI, the manufacturer carries a case for the 45cc and 52cc line of chainsaws, but not one specifically made for the 38cc units. The 38cc chainsaws will fit in the bigger case, but not as tightly or as snug as the bigger chainsaws it's designed for. To obtain that case you need to contact NATI directly at 800.348.5004.

16 in. 38cc High Performance Gas Chainsaw is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The saw works well, the instructions not so much We live in an area prone to high winds and earthquakes, so I wanted to get a chainsaw for use in emergencies. This is my first chainsaw. It comes with a fuel mixing bottle, combination spark plug/bar wrench, sharpening file, and bar scabbard. The construction uses a lot of plastic, including the fuel and oil tanks. Assembly (connecting the bar) took about 10 minutes, complicated by the instructions saying to "mount the guide bar" before mentioning that the tension adjuster needed to be moved out of the way before the bar could be mounted. The fuel mix is 40:1 and the recommended bar oil is 10w30 motor oil. There are two sets of instructions for starting, one in the manual and one on a label on the saw. They do not agree with one another. I more-or-less followed the manual to get it started. Once started, it worked well, cutting smoothly through a 7" softwood round in only 11 seconds. The saw is easy to handle. Which brings me to the instruction manual - it's very poorly put together. There's no overall diagram identifying the operating parts of the saw. The starting instructions mention a "throttle lock button" which doesn't exist. The throttle is referred to as both a "lever" and a "trigger". It says you can't push in the choke (it automatically releases when the throttle trigger is pulled), but the label on the saw says to push in the choke, and in fact you can. The manual also says to repeatedly press the fuel primer bulb "until the bubble is completely filled with fuel", but regardless of the amount of pressing it only filled half-way. Other problems with the manual are many misspellings (anti-freze, "washar" for washer, etc.), the section on the chain brake is titled "Oiling Port", the parts diagrams have the wrong parts identified, especially on pg 13, and the diagrams are small and unclear. There are no detailed specifications or maintenance instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy This saw felt solid out of the box and after some hard use it is still going strong. I have cut about 2 cord of downed oak 12" + rounds and no problems also work well brushing. It has plenty of power although some of the bigger rounds it was maxed. It is still together with every thing still solidly attached. The accessories are make it fantastic buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Light and Balanced After i put this Chainsaw together. It started right up and had great maneuverability. It is light weight and easy to move around. It was difficult to put together and the directions were not that clear. Other than that this is a good basic chainsaw. Good for little tree around the house but not for commercial use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw! Used this saw to cut down two trees and saw them up. One tree was a 30" weeping willow and the saw just barely had enough blade length to cut thru from both sides. Saw had plenty of power and started up easily every time. I ran five tanks of gas and bar oil through it on the day I used it. The only issue I had was the kill switch is very close to my right thumb when using the saw, and I accidently turned it off at least once on each tank of gas while cutting. I have big hands and was using gloves so this may not be an issue for everyone. It also came with a file that I used when I was done to touch up the teeth. Nice piece of equipment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good chainsaw for home use. I purchased the Blue Max chainsaw to cut up a downed tree in my neighbors yard. She is a widow and had no one to help her remove the tree. This saw started easily and cut smoothly. I quickly had the tree cut into small pieces. The saw came with a bonus. It comes with a 14 inch and a 18 inch bar and chain. Two chainsaws for the price of one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Fantastic performance after using for several hours out in the woods. It was great for clearing out dead trees that could have fallen down on my house. Great size and weight and very easy to transport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent chainsaw This is one of the best chainsaws that I've ever used. It always start's, light, and very tuff. I love it because you get two sizes out of one saw, with the two different bars and chains. Excellent price too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Saw, Powerful There is a lot of power in the Bluemax 14 in. 38cc Heavy Duty Gas Chain Saw. It ripped through a tree that I had fall in my yard. It starts with a nice easy pull. Out of the box you do have to put it together which was easy. You just loosen two bolts, take off the chain guard and place the chain on the sprocket and guard. I think the size power ratio is perfect. If this chainsaw can't handle the job you probably need to call in a professional. I highly recommend.
