Worked good first time
I purchased this saw as a replacement for a Craftsman from Sears. I did not use for about a year after I purchased. Worked great the first time then problems with starting ever since. I would have returned but warranty had expired. I had it repaired and possibly I used 40:1 instead of 50:1 not sure. I now only prime a couple time instead of the 6 given by the instructions. Overall I'm happy because I've had the saw several years, purchased in 2010 but I would rather purchase a heavier model that's for professional cutting. The pruning & hobby guidelines are not quite accurate with this saw.

saw starts fine
The saw doesn't have starting problems you just have to know how to start a saw. I have run it for three months with no starting problems. The saw runs good but isn't the most powerful saw. It's a good value you get what you pay for. Saw cuts great

What a joke!!!
I purchased this saw because a friend has a 440 and we have a Husqvarna weed eater. So I thought this would be a good saw. Straight out of the box and it will not start tried to start 6 or 7 times on 3 separate days. Will not be buying any more of your products and your welcome for the money I gave you for nothing!!!!

I have been very disappointed so far.

Horrible to start
I've owned this saw for 3years now with my dad and since we got it we have had problems starting it and getting it to start after being used for a little with most saws it should start right back up
Me and my dad have looked at it and had a cousin look at it and it still doesn't run good at all

240s are junk saws
got this saw and used it for 1hr using the husq 50:1 pre mix fuel that's all I use in my Husqvarna saws and this saw ran good till it just quite the bearing on the flywheel side blow up and took out the piston and cylinder replaced and 2hrs of use the oiler quite working its made of plastic damaged threads replaced and then the fuel tank vent stoped venting and that was a pain to replace and make sure it wasn't leaking after replacement or venting right fixed that and got another 2-3hrs of light trimming that's what I bought this saw for and its been a pain in the butt to use the tooless chain adjuster cant get the chain to tighten up or it gets to tight and overloads the saw
this saw is junk also the break handle rubs on the top cover

I haven't had any starting issues. Even had it sit for a couple of months with the same gas and still started in a couple of pulls. It's cut everything I've put it to.
