        Answer This Question

        A:  Thank you for your interest in the Oregon® brand. Yes, the nose of the bar has a grease port and can be greased. The PowerSharp chain is designed to only be sharpened with the onboard sharpening stone, not a hand file.

          I love this saw. Better than any electric or gas saw I’ve used. Cuts through 30 inch logs like a hot knife through butter. Straight and true cuts too. Cut up an 80 foot downed pine tree with it and have not yet needed to use the built in sharpener. Can’t take it into the woods, use my gas saw for that. Then drag the tree to the house and use this saw to cut it up. Came assembled, followed the instructions to add chain oil and started sawing. Chain tensioner easy to use. More than met my hopes for it.

          Serious oiler issue
          There is actually a lot I like about this saw. The size, the easy tensioning, 18" bar and wicked looking chain, cut quite well, and reasonably priced. However, despite having gone through the instructions and properly primed the oiler, checking this at least three times in between making a few cuts, there just was not enough oil getting in the bar or on the chain. Based on what I saw everytime I opened it up, see pics below, it was accumulating a thick black oily residue that was getting slung back on the sharpening stone and eventually the chain would run through that accumulated mess and spread it in the bar. It was even accumulating on the inside surface of the cover. This stuff did not look like anything that would have come from what I cut. My only conclusion is the sharpening stone was acting as a hindrance to the goo slinging further back in the chainsaw, and possibly not gumming up the works. nsteand the sharpening stone caught it all it built up quickly, gumming up the oiling process. Just a theory. Regardless, oil was not getting where it needed to be.

            Great chain saw for price
            Oregon Chain Saw CS 1500 This post a little long but might help beginners with tips for this saw. Read some complaints from reviews. As with most complaints from an excellent product the complaints usually from not understanding manual or not using common sense. What a bargain for $100.00. Leery at first since I had another electric chain saw and it was worthless. Always had to sharpen chain. This chain saw kept plugging (pun?) away with what I credit at least twelve cords of wood the hard way without changing chain. Worked good as expensive gas chain saws I used in my twenty's. I had two 90’ cypress trees (photo 1) cut down by a professional. Had him limb and leave 4’ logs. I also cut five 15’ Junipers from my neighbors yard. I am a frail eighty year old with a torn rotor cup and a spur jabbing my right shoulder socket that I need removed. Cannot use sledge and wedge to split rounds since not able to raise arm above breast As I wrote I must of cut over 12 cords. The photo #2 shows a little over half a cord not counting quarter cord from Junipers not shown in neighbors yard. Reason I figure over twelve cords, I ripped (photo 3) the rounds because I couldn’t split it. Ripping takes around 4 times longer than the same cut with a round. I ripped over 600 pieces. I cut them in 15” pieces since even though the chain bar is 18”, one inch shorter made it faster than 16” lengths. Took nine hours over three days. I’m retired and have the time. Never woke next morning with sore muscles. I let the saw do the work. Tip #1 Make sure when first using saw to prime oil as manual suggest. I did a little different from directions, not only removed chain bar but kept chain gear cover off so I could watch when oil dripped out. It does not spurt. Tip #2 If no start make sure the front hand guard is pulled toward you. The manual tells you, but easy to forget at first. Tip 3 Manuel tells you for first thirty minutes chain will need adjusting frequently. TRUE. Only threw chain three times in nine hours of cutting. First two times at beginning and last time during last round thinking I could make it without adjusting. For the first 15 minutes adjust tension by loosing red knob a little and snug black knob, (knobs are super neat,don’t need tools which tend to lose in saw dust) every 20 seconds. Chain should not be any looser as photo #4. Sound like a lot, yet only takes two seconds. Note: manual says let chain cool before adjusting tension. I am impatient and it would take forever to finish cutting. I adjusted immediately with no complications, the chain lasted over nine hours of cutting, and still has a lot of use. It is your decision. After fifteen minutes of cutting you can take longer to adjust. After thirty minutes, maybe every two minutes. You get used to when need adjustment by wobble of chain bar and cut taking longer. Tip #4 To reinstall chain if tossed, place chain on bar first, then place chain on drive socket, next, place bar on chain gear mounting stub. Photo 5. Will save you a lot of time. When bar is on stub, tighten bar with adjustment knob before replacing side guard. Tip #5 Sharpening the chain is fantastic. Saves much time with the automatic chain sharpener. Very cool. When sharpening, make sure you take the chain guard cover off and scrape the sawdust off of the sharpening stone. Tip #6 Make sure to get all saw dust out when replacing chain guard cover. I used paint brush and leaf blower. I’m sure if you read Manuel and use common sense, you will appreciate this chain saw. Remember, let the saw do the work. HAPPY CUTTING!!

              great for around the house and occasional use
              The saw worked great! The oil system works and i was able to cut a fully grown pine tree up down to the bulb. And the thing took a beaten and it still works, id buy it again if for some reason it broke or got lost

                Great idea, extremely poor execution
                Great idea. 120V, no gas and gas oil. Always starts, has clever quick sharpening chain. Unfortunately, Oregon used some 3rd tier engineers: The most critical part is the bar, subjected to greatest load. Their "engineers" secured the bar with three tiny screws driven into plastic ! It is stupid design, it got loose in no time ! Screws should be long machine bolts instead, passing through robust and rigid plastic bosses and secured by back plate and locknuts on the other side of the plastic.

                  Great electric chainsaw that I had ever purchased
                  I had a big tree died and fall down after a rainy day. Fortunately, it did not hurt anybody but I need to handle this and get a gardener guy to cut it and then dump it. However, would rather try to do it by myself. This electric chainsaw should be the best that I ever bought. It did the job (cut tree with more than a foot width) very well. Highly recommended!

                  This saw cuts great. It has an unconventional tooth design, compared to traditional chain saws, to accommodate the onboard sharpening system but it does the job well. The written advise to let the blade do the cutting and not force it, works well. By trying to force it into a log, the motor labors but it doesn't seem to cut much faster than just letting the blade do the work. I am disappointed with the warranty however, especially considering this is from a reputable company like Oregon. As I understand it, if the saw breaks, I need to pay shipping both ways and labor for any covered repairs. If this is correct, the warranty is laughable as this saw cost around $120. After paying shipping both ways and the labor to repair it, you'd be farther ahead to simply buy a new saw. The warranty issue effected my rating (at a minimum) by one star. I had an 85 foot walnut tree removed from my property recently. At my request, the tree removal service left several 8" to 15" diameter logs for me to cut up to use in my fire pit. The saw did a great job with no problems. Keep an eye on the chain tension though. As in any new saw, the chain can and will stretch a bit or simply go out of adjustment. It's easy to do the tool free tightening while on the job. After cutting up the logs, the blade seems as sharp as before I started. I did not need to use the self sharpening feature. This seems to be a good saw so far. I'm a satisfied customer ..... as long as it doesn't break down.

                      My husband loves this chain saw. I bought it for his birthday in early November and I have to tell you, our 5 acres have never looked this good. He's cut down so many scrub trees, dead or dying big trees, thorn trees in the 4 months he's had it and never had a problem. The chain has come off a couple of times but I suspect that might be user error, and it goes back on pretty easily. He just finished taking down two huge branches that were damaged in the recent ice storm, one of which was hanging over the house. We have a huge pile of cut firewood now and the saw just keeps on going. I would recommend this saw to anyone.
