The saw performed as advertised
Out of the box this chainsaw performed well. If you follow the quickstart guide you shouid not have a problem starting the chainsaw. Cutting should be done slowly until you learn how the saw performs.

A HUSQVARNA FAN 4-EVER
I PURCHASED THE HUSQVARNA 240 FOR YARD CLEAN UP AFTER THE OCTOBER SNOW STORM THAT KNOCKED DOWN LOTS OF TREES. THE 240 WAS GREAT, CUT THROUGH TREES UP TO 16" IN DIA. WITH NO PROBLEM. THE 240 IS LIGHT AND HAS DURABILITY THAT HUSQVARNA IS KNOWN FOR. THE SAW IS EASY TO USE AND MAINTAIN. THE CHAIN TIGHTENING SYSTEM IS A SNAP. I WOULD RECOMMEND THE HUSQVARNA 240 TO ANYONE NEEDING A CHAIN SAW FOR HOMEOWNER WORK AROUND THE PROPERTY.

Big Little Saw
I have just purchased a small piece of property and have some light to medium tree work and clearing to perform. We started working on the property two weeks ago and this saw has performed flawlessly. I call it my "Big Little Saw". It works great for removing undergrowth, limbs, and smaller trees. To be honest, I have let the saw "eat" on a few medium sized trees and it really has the power. Starting has never been a problem and I look forward to getting to work each time I take my saw with me. Keep saw clean and maintained when work is done. Great Product.

Great Saw For Price
This has proven to be a good investment. Have used it for cutting railroad ties with no problem cutting straight and quickly.

"when it was good. . . .
When its good its very but when its bad its very bad.
It seems impossible to keeep the chain on this saw. Ten minutes of work is followed by 10 minutes of fiddling around with the chain mechanism and the bar tensioner system.
Not as reliable as my old model 5 1

great little saw
bought this saw for cutting campfire wood and for light use around home. this saw is a little cold blooded, but if you let it warm up as the instructions tell you, it will run perfect. I only have about 4-5 hours on this saw, but it is light and easy to handle, So far i havn't had any issues what so ever.Well worth the price of 200.00

Nice Little Workhorse
This is my first "upgrade" saw from the common urban chainsaws from your normal big box stores. I was going for better quality/workmanship, reliability, and more power.
It's being used regularly for the past two months, and will be well into the winter (for firewood) and into spring (for pruning). The reliability in starting is much better than any of my previous chainsaws. It feels lighter and runs smoother than I was used to from the others before it. My only regret is I wished I would have sprung for a more powerful model with a longer bar. But compared to my previous three chainsaws of comparable (engine) size, the 240 outperforms them in both reliability and comfort.

This unit was an out of box failure. Brought it to a warranty shop because unit would not start. Was also determined that the chain oil pump was not operating either.
