Nice little saw
Truly have no idea why all the negative noise this saw is receiving. Purchased this saw for some light work. My son borrowed it and worked it hard all day both he and his friend.
The saw performed exactly as Hasqvarna stated it would.
This saw starts easily, run strong and performs. People read and follow the owners/operators Manual. If you do, trust me you will not be disappointed.

Decent saw for the money
I see a great deal of bad feed back on this saw and several other Husqvarna saws. I own this saw as well as the 455 rancher along with several Stihl saws. I can't complain about any of them! You get what you pay for in either brand. These are both high end saw makers and they have different sizes and models to target different uses like any other competing pro saw maker. The 240 is not designed to rip through big hardwood or be used hard for 6-10 hour days! It's meant for casual use with breaks or cool down periods. It's a great saw for small jobs and it saves your hands from vibrations when limbing or cutting up small(2-6 in dia) trees and saplings. Also, the chain makes a HUGE difference! Get an aggressive chain. Run the fuel out after every use!!! Choke it off don't hit the e stop!!! Keep fuel stabilizers and system cleaners like startron and stabil in your gas can along with fresh gas!!! Another thing many people neglect is basic maintenance. Clean your filters or replace them!!! Saw dust can be larg chips down to microscopic dust that can ruin a carburetor if not cleaned out once and a while. Keeping chains sharp will cut down on the microscopic dust a lot! This said I just wanted to help clear up some confusion on the quality of the 240.

Small but good power
It is small but has good power for the lightness. I wanted one for what it does. Can't say about durability because I have not had it long enough. Makes the job easier because it does not give me out to use it.

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!!!!
