I have this saw. It is not great, but not terrible, and serviceable for this price if you only use a chainsaw a couple times a year.

It has really rough castings, leaks chain oil, and while it is 50cc doesn't quite have the power I expected. It doesn't come with a case. It is not as nice as my Poulan Pro, but it actually is more reliable to start and run. Not everyone needs a Stihl or Husq, and this is far, far below the quality of those. It's even below the Chinese clones of those.

I upgraded the chain and it has worked great to fell smaller trees (6-10") and do limb pruning. I have lots of complaints about it, but if you really need a cheap saw, this one is worth the price (it is basically as cheap as you can get for a 50cc saw).

Note that this takes a 40:1 ratio gas:oil mix, which is not as common (but easily findable).

I'm not expecting Echo or Husqvarna quality for this price but if this is one of those saws where you wear yourself out trying to get it started (like a Poulan), you really should seriously consider saving the money and applying it to a better saw. There is nothing worse than needing to complete a job and spending 30 minutes and all your energy trying to get the tool started, if it even starts. I have no experience with this brand so I can't say how reliable it is.

I have this and Poulan Pro . My Poulan never worked correctly and no matter what I do shuts down after 5 min of use. This one is much better but leaks chain oil as well. I used it for over an hour a few month ago and it was great. It's not worth $200+ but for this amount it's a good saw for an average home owner.

I had a Poulan, then a Poulan Pro. Now I have a Stihl and I'm never going back. The difference is light and day both for starting and power.

Pretty lousy reviews, but what can you expect for $100 ?

I have it works well but like others it leaks chain oil like crazy. Never leave it sit with oil or gas in it and you should be fine.

Get an echo, stihl, or husqvarna and don't screw around with Chinese knock off chain saws.

An insanely cheap made version of the most dangerous saw if used improperly or is cheaply made?!!! Nah I'll stick with my Stihl.

I have Husqvarna and DeWalt 60v. Both are good but, especially Husqvarna, leaks oil too - maybe just the nature of the beast.

I tend to think that all chainsaws should leak oil as keeping the chain lubed is critical. Both my Wen pole saw and a Husq have a tendency to drip oil.

The 40cc Husq that I got off a SD 9 years ago has been solid. Its been 3 years since I started it but took me about 5 min to get it going. I've always stuck with the premixed stuff off the store without issue.

I bought one of the Blue Max chainsaws a couple of years ago for about the same price, and I just have to remember to drain all of the oil before I put it up. Otherwise the tool box that I made for it as a case will have at last 1/8" of oil all the way through the bottom, so this may need the same treatment.

I have this one and use it to fell down over 30 trees (6"-20"). I only used it to fell down a 30" tree once. There is no problem. Yes, it leaks chain oil, and it only works great for one tank of gas. And then it is hard to start the saw. It will start again after a few hours. It is good for me because I am not a professional and my arms are already getting numb. Smilie
