Looks good on the rack.
I used the same electric chainsaw for 15 years and never had a problem. I pruned trees, cut firewood from burnt Juniper, and worked it hard. The chain never even came off. Then I bought this nightmare. The first one dropped the chain on the first use. So, I took it back to Walmart and exchanged it. Set it up, twas oiled, chain perfectly tightened, bought an additional new expensive chain, and all of the above. About 5 minutes into a 4" Pinion branch cut it clogged up and the chain came off. This product looks good on the rack and those of you who have had a great electric chainsaw before know how much easier it is than a gas saw. Totally worthless and cheap. Shameless production of a facimile of a real tool. Then there's my Poulan Pro 18" piece of worthless noise. The PP18 won't keep running and several reviews online say it's a product defect. I'm not a negative guy but when I give a company $300 and the products don't even work? Well there you go. I'm making a warrant claim on both saws.

On my second use of trimming limbs, the saw became useless. The chain adjustment screw tang nut broke rendering the saw useless. That is what is used to keep the chain tight on the bar. Very poor design/quality. The adjustment screw is very small maybe 3/16 inch and the tang nut is even of less quality. This important adjustment item needs to be redesigned and made out of much more quality material.

Very pleased with this product
After reading many of the reviews I must say I am sorry for those of you who might have purchased a lemon. I have been using this saw for a year now and am very pleased with it. I have owned other gas powered chainsaws in times past and they were okay but this little electric chainsaw has far surpassed my expectations. I have cut as big as a 16" diameter trunk without any difficulties. I do let it rest every now and then. I have had no problem with chain oil and as all chainsaws I have every had yes the chain comes loose with use but I tighten it up and keeps on going. A great saw for the price from Wal-Mart.

My first chain saw - more messy than expected
To remove a 22'' wide elm tree stump, I bought this chain saw. Its 14 inch chain needed to be tightened three times within one hour. With a third of the tree stump cut off, its cutting chain became dull. Over night, its chain oil container leaked. How about a power cable longer than 9''?

A piece of junk.
I bought this product two years ago at Walmart for around $50. Big mistake! The saw worked well the first couple of times on small branches (pruning). When I set the saw on my deck it leaked all of the bar oil onto the deck staining it. I fix that probablem (poor assembly at the factory. After that it was all downhill. A chain that will not stay tight, sheared bolts ,more oil leaks and on and on. Worst saw I"ve ever purchased. This will be my LAST Poulan product ever.
