Questions & Answers

If I did use a 40 to 1 mix not a 25 to 1 mix what would happen to the saw Thanks Bob

If I did use a 40 to 1 mix not a 25 to 1 mix what would happen to the saw Thanks Bob
Asked by: Bob
The confusion is that the Use and Care Manual link states: FUELING AND LUBRICATION Use regular grade unleaded gasoline mixed with 25:1 2-cycle engine oil. And the Home Depot overview states: 40:1 fuel mixture.

Has anyone had a problem with leaking? My new one leaked. Got another one... same leak.

Looks like it's the bar/chain oil leaking from the belly of the saw.
Asked by: Coach
If it's the chain oil. There is a adjustment screw on the bottom. Hope that helps

20 in. 52cc Gas Chainsaw is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 752.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blue max saw GARBAGE I recently bought the 20 inch blue max chain saw online from Home Depot. We used it for about 20 minutes just to see how it would do. It did good. The problem is 3 days later we were going to use it again and when we tried starting it we pulled it a few times then the rope would not retract. So we took it apart. the recoil spool and spring have a bolt in the center that is screwed to the inside of the blue cover. Well it had broke off. No way to fix it without a whole new recoil cover. They should make that out of metal!!! Not cheap plastic!!! We are going to send it back and buy a brand with better quality!! We were sure hoping to get more than 20 minutes use out of it !!!!!!!! NOT IMPRESSED!!! The whole reason we are even looking at saws is because my fathers 46 year old homelite saw got motor damage because our local lawn n garden store gave him crap oil to mix. That was a great saw !!! They don't make them that good anymore. Just like automobiles.. everything now is disposable JUNK !!!!!!!

However, the "anti-vibration" handle jarred my husbands arm quite a bit. He has operated chainsaws before. The cord was hard to pull and it took quite a few tries to get it to start, even though he followed the starting directions correctly and had the correct fuel mix. It cuts like a hot knife through butter - when it runs. The chain did not fall off at all during our testing. However, it would not start again after it was warm. As with other reviewers, it also leaked chain oil continuously, despite adjustments. It also does not come with a case, which would have been nice. My overall rating is 3 stars, because it did cut well. Our negative factors were the cord was hard to pull, and you had to pull it multiple times to start (I'm not talking once or twice), it vibrated quite a bit (in comparison to the Ryobi that we got to replace it when we took it back and returned it to the store.), it leaked oil, and it would not start when it was warm. We used ours once for some trimming and then returned it to the store. We purchased an 18 in Ryobi to replace it, which we have been happy with.

I did right out of the box change the spark plug from the cheap one they put in it, to a NGK plug. I use the premium gas in it also with Stihl two stroke synthetic oil mix, always has been great in my other saw's.. Oh and yes it leaks oil out of it just like the Husqvarna saw's I have had, So Not a problem like others have said about this saw... just put something under it and its fine. I did notice the chain does stretch a lot with the first cuts, and then I just tighten it and kept on a cutting... Think I will try a Oregon chain next time and see how that one goes. But in all the saw did what I needed it to do no problem .. looking forward to more cutting with it..

On 3/10/19, I picked it up at Home Depot. On 5/30/19, I used it for the first time. I used it for about 15 minutes but the day was hot (96 degrees) so I shut it off to take a break. When I tried to restart it, it would not start. I decided to wait until the next day but it still would not start. I took it back to Home Depot. They could not start it either. I was told to take it elsewhere for repair. When I reminded Home Depot I had the extended warranty, I was told that I would have to pay $20, that it may take 5 to 7 weeks, and that they may not honor the warranty. I am now waiting without a chainsaw.

If you follow the instructions you should have no problems. It cranks when it's supposed to. It cuts great. I can drop trees without fear of bogging it down. This and a brand name saw were recommended by a blog site for saws under $200. I'm glad I took a chance. I personally like the chain oil adjustment screw. Just has been a great saw. Wish they had a better carrying case but it will fit in a Poulan 18 inch case. Advertise your saws more. Thanks

The design of this tool is flawed and makes it very difficult to start and run. It isn't heavy duty at all. I give a shout out to Home Depot employees for their help, but this is not a tool I would recommend.
