Deal Details

Home Depot currently has their 18" Homelite Pro chainsaw for $99, regularly $179. We were in the store in Fredericksburg, VA (on Route 3 East) tonight and they had at least 1/2 dozen of them left at that price. Regular price is $179.00. (I searched their site and they don't have that model - UT10519 - listed).

Looks fairly decent for a cheap-o saw. Probably worth it for light use if you can find it.

* Fully Assembled 46cc, 18 in., 2-Cycle Gas Chain Saw
* Tool-less Bar and Chain Tension For Quick Adjustments
* Automatic Oiler Keeps Bar Lubricated

* Inertia Activated Chain Brake
* 2-Year Warranty

Not sure why you're saying "cheap-o." We had a 14" "happy homeowner" Homelite for a number of years and have used it to cut down/cut up several LARGE oaks. Even with using it more like a logging saw, it took several years (at least 5) to kill the clutch and brake on it, which only costs about $20 to replace. We decided to go with the 18" this time because we have a lot of dead and/or downed trees that we need to do something with from this past winter's snow and ice storms. Personally, I think $99 is a great deal for this saw, but that's JMHO...

No offense intended....I actually have an ancient Homelite cutoff saw that still works, however newer ones are not usually known for their longevity vs professional brands. I agree the price is good for the saw. You should be even happier with the longer bar if you have to cut anymore large oaks.

Where trees grow and people live, nearly everyone knows someone with a Homelite. Typically they're old and reliable. Wasn't aware of any changes -- about to rush out and get one of these. Has their quality changed, not as good anymore? Any reliable sources on this?

Grabbed the last one on the shelf tonight. Thanks OP & Repped! we decided just this past week we need to add a chain saw to our bevy of tools. Don't need a top of the line Stihl or Echo so this fits our light use needs perfectly!

Thanks!

I got one 20" Pro for $119, minus 10% Lowes coupon,it is $108 before tax. Is the 20" better than 18"?

There are a lot of 18" left, but only one 20" I got.

Thanks OP! I'm a few days late on this but just snagged one for $108 all included ($99 -10% Lowe's + 2 yr full replacement warranty for $11 + tax). There were still 2 left at the Hazlet NJ store.

New Tampa HD has a few of the 18". Seems like other stores in the Tampa area have stock as well. Can not verify price for stores other than the New Tampa HD. Thanks OP.

Thanks! I needed to get a chainsaw for my ex husband (Not for what you're thinking Smilie He wants one for Christmas)
I've been waiting for a good deal, stopped at Home Depot after work & grabbed 1 of the 2 they had left. The guy working there actually told me about it when I asked him where the chainsaws were. This was in Richmond on W Broad St.

My Home Depot had three. When I told the sales guys what I was looking for, they said "that must be a reconditioned one like this one" and pointed to one lying on the shelf without a box. I said no, it was new, and they finally found some across the aisle and said "wow." I got one, but it may be too big and heavy for me, and it also seems to have a LOT of plastic (but that may just be today's chain saws). I may just stick to my small and manageable 16" Homelite XL that has served me well for 18 years :-)

I bought one and hope it holds up. It had bad reviews on the home depot website. The no tool chain tensioner is plastic. People were complaining that it doesn't hold up and the chain keeps getting loose. Anyone no how long you have to return it with home depot?
