Answer This Question

A:  please search "Adjustment Knob and Chain Cover Lock Knob For UT43104 Corded 14" Chain Saw." in eBay. I think the Chain Cover Lock Knob should fit 16" Chain saw. (4 available when I searched)

      A:  Thank you for your interest in the Homelite 16 in. 12 Amp Electric Chainsaw. If your chainsaw is leaking I would recommend taking it to a service center. Repairing the chainsaw yourself will void the warranty.

        Answer This Question

        A:  This not to used on a chain saw. Only thick oil made for chainsaw. The motor oil is too thin and doesn’t have the lubricant for the chain. I own this chain saw.

              Easy Care and Simple to Use
              We've had both Homelite chainsaws for several years and have enjoyed their simplicity. The photos taken are from today (04-2021) and they keep cutting. Fantastic price for years of reliability.

                In the recent storm I had an 80 foot tall willow uproot and come down. This Homelite 16 inch took care of all but the main trunk of the tree. Was light weight. Easy to handle and powerful. This saw was short money for the 2500 dollars quoted by two tree removal companies

                  For a corded chainsaw, I love it!
                  Yes, it is corded. Get that part out of the way. When it comes to everything else, I love this thing! I wanted to spend money on a good chainsaw, and since I already had a 100’ extension cable, I felt I could get away with a corded one. I shopped briefly and settled on this one, and have had zero regrets with it! It’s light, no start up process required, and is perfect for any home sized jobs.

                      We used it to cut many 4" to 6" dia. trees out of a fence row. It is powerful and quiet and did not require any adjustment of the chain. The automatic oiler worked very good and did not leak oil while stored.

                      Inexpensive and good
                      I have only had this saw, 12 amp 16 inch, for two days but in those two days I cut quite a bit of wood with it. Everything in the photos was cut with this saw. It wasn't used to drop the tree but was used to process the downed timber. Very easy to adjust chain tightness and operate.

                        Homelite 16” Chainsaw
                        I really wanted one of the 15 amp saws, but needed one right away, so I got the 12 amp. I had a 9amp of a different brand, and was completely dissatisfied with it, and was afraid the jump to 12 would not be enough. As it turned out, the saw performed better than expected, cutting up an oak tree that had fallen in the yard. The trunk was 26-18” at the base. If it continues to work this well throughout the warranry period, I will be tickled pink. If it keeps working beyond that, it will be a bonus. I do womder if the chain is getting oiled well enough. It is still cutting fine, but I expected to find more oil on it after cutting.

                          Just keep yourself protected, chain taught and oil in reservoir. Cut 50 eight to nine inch log cuts so far and it works fine. Never push on a saw. Let it do the cutting.

                          this chainsaw is great for around the house use and can handle 14 inch logs. It would be much nicer if the adjusters and bar supports were made of steel. The bar tends to bend in relation to the saw housing. It also would be nice to have a chain brake. Much quieter than gas.
