              Q:The instructions said that my saw could have some white smoke during initial use. No noticeable smoke on day 1 with a few minutes of use. Yesterday, day 2, there was a concerning amount of white smoke. Plenty of oil though. Should I be concerned?

              A:  Hello, Robb - Thank you for your interest in the 18 in. 38cc 2-Cycle Gas Chainsaw with Heavy Duty Case. Since you only used it a few minutes the first time it is normal for it to smoke when you use it for longer during the second use. However, if it continues smoking for the third use you should contact us for assistance.  A RYOBI Customer Experience Professional is here for you, Monday - Friday from 9 am to 6 pm (EST) when you call or text us at 1.800.525.2579 or through email or live chat when you visit us at https://www.ryobitools.com/support/contact.

                Bought prior to Hurricane Ian
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I knew I would need a chainsaw when prepping for Hurricane Ian. I've been a big fan of Ryobi tools so this met my need for small lot homeowner. Sure enough, 4 trees to cut up and one from roof. The chainsaw worked great, and hard! I did have hard time starting it up after stopping when it was hot (possible flooding carb) but it would start up again, every time, after resting it for 5 mins. It has a nice carry case and blade sheath. Nice tool for the price! I will clean it and store it for the next Hurricane! (It's not my first rodeo!)

                    Outstanding workaholic.
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just had 2 trees cut down and instead of hauling it off, I bought this Ryobi chainsaw and cut it up myself for firewood. Big job requires the right tools. Well, I made a good choice. It handles the work load well.

                      Good Saw for DIY Homeowner
                      Bought on 07/11/2021. I’m a novice; hence this will not be a technical review of its functions. It is lightweight and is easy to maintain. I have changed the bar and chain once because my cuts were going sideways although I have sharpened the chain. I can't find OEM parts in local stores but read that I could use Oregon parts. I was able to cut a log into four sections but will consider getting a longer bar since Ryobi said in the Q&A section I could go up/down two sizes.

                        Great Value!
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m 54 and I’ve never owned a chainsaw until I bought the 18” about two years ago. A stranger I was chatting with told me he has land with a lot of dead white ash. Since I have a fireplace I decided to put my Ryobi to work. I cut, split and stack wood from his land about 8 months of the year. That man is now a friend and my Ryobi is a beast. Had chain sharpened countless times and had many new chains put on. And my chainsaw keeps cutting. It’s a breeze to use and maintain. Having trees to cut (for firewood) and a tough, reliable chainsaw has saved me hundreds of dollars a year in heating costs. I highly recommend this chainsaw!

                          Nice Saw
                          I bought this saw a couple months ago and I've used it about 10 times so far. Always starts up, never stalls. It gets right through the white and red oak that I used the saw for. I guess time will tell how good this saw is over the next few months.

                            Does the job well!
                            Just bought this today, filled it with chain oil and 2 stroke gas and it fired right up. Cut down a bunch of trees as pictured. Works really well for what I need, really impressed!

                              Tough little consumer saw
                              I used this saw to take down a large oak tree. Working slow I managed it in 3 weeks by myself and this saw. I bought an extra chain to avoid extra time sharpening (plus my sharpening skills suck). I still had to try sharpening and made it to where I could cut a complete circle in a 2 ft log. Well, almost. It can sometimes take a few extra pulls to get started, but after that it's one- or two- pulls to start. It feels like you could run it wide open for days and it wouldn't burn up. Which brings me to the cons: It can get really really hot. I mean 'cook your sausage' hot. I got 3rd degree burns on one finger from a slight brush up against the bottom without a glove. I started wearing gloves after that, all the time, even in the bath. And even with gloves on it could get very hot at the handle. Second, the brake bar is a pain. In high-up, one-handed situations I would bump it against a limb just a little too hard and the chain locks. I would have work to get re-situated so I could reach the lock bar with my left hand to unlock it while holding the saw with my right. I would definitely NOT use this in a business application, but it's a great buy for someone like me who will use it only occasionally. That tree was the last time I will ever tackle something that large. I wish I had some antlers or something from it to hang on my wall.

                                Great saw for the price.
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've bought this a year ago and it has not let me down,everytime I pull the chord it fires right up...its light weight and it performs like a heavy weight,it cuts through big trees just as good as it does the smaller trees,barely bogs down

                                  Best chainsaw
                                  About a couple weeks ago I had a tree come down on my property. I bought this chainsaw because of the price and all of the comments that everybody has written about it. This tree literally touched my house and the church and this 18in chainsaw had no problem of cutting through this white oak AKA Sugarberry tree.
