HUSQVARNA 240 e-series
chainsaw 240 e-series
I own 9 acres of woods, meadow, water. 240 e-series seems to be perfect for my needs which is mostly clearing downed limbs and removing small, dead trees.
I like the saw. Starts fine. Works fine.
My only suggestion is this. The simple directions (mostly on starting) are very simple. The user manual is quite detailed. It would be helpful if there were an intermediate document for the new owner, more detail than the simple starting document and less than the manual.
In addition, it would be helpful if the seller started the machine and gave the new user a tutorial 101.

I bought this chainsaw after talking to my son-in-law who was a logger. I can see why. It is light weight for an 18" bar saw, and cuts very well.
I think it must have very good compression since some times the saw won't let me pull the starter cord all the way out, and it is difficult to start sometimes. But when you follow the simple directions that are on the saw for starting procedures, and get a "good pull" on the starter cord, if fires off fairly easily. Once running, it idles fine and revs up ready to cut wood.
I have cut almost a cord of wood when I look at the amount of branches that fell during our winter wind and ice rain storm. The saw worked flawlessly in performance.

A great saw for the price.
I was going to buy a Stihl but changed my mind when I seen the husky 240.This saw has much more bang for the buck than the comparable Stihl model.I really like the ease of chain adjustment and ease of starting.Thanks for a great product that I'm sure will last a long time.

Finally--a real chain saw
This baby is an animal--two days after my purchase, 8 inches of wet snow took down a huge pine tree on my property. My new Husky had it cut up in about 2 hours....with no stopping or hesitations. Also, doesn''t seem to use much gas or oil. I waited 20 years for this fine product. Thanks!
