Proper tool for the job
I went to our local power tool store looking for a Stihl chainsaw. The salesman suggested the Husqvarna and proceeded to tell me the differences. Since they sell both brands I figured he had nothing much to gain from selling one over the other. The saw has performed flawlessly and every bit as well as explained. I can't compare it to the new Stihl, but I like it better than the old one I was replacing. I don't use a chainsaw a lot so this one should last me......well, forever. Definitely the right choice.

This saw starts and runs well with no issues. For its size it does a good job on red oak. Nice saw to handle.

Great Saw for a Great Value!
I received this saw for Christmas and there isn't anything I would change. It's great to have after you fell a tree to do the cleanup work with a light weight saw. I've used this to cut through a pretty descent sized tree with relative ease for its size. Make sure you let the saw warm up and you are good to go!

Yardwork made easy!
The ease of starting this chainsaw is what sold me on the product. The ergonomic design makes using it much more comfortable then other chainsaws. Plenty of power in this model for cleaning up after all the recent storms -

Good saw for the Money
I have been using a sears brand saw for the past 8 years and finally it went down, so naturally I wanted to continue with what I have been using, well sears is now making a lower quality product, out of the box it would not stay running so I went back to sears and exchanged it for a Husqvarna. Let me tell you from the first pull I have been very pleased with this product. I cut about 4-5 cords of firewood each year which I take from tree to stove, and this saw can do it all. It has not let me down yet, I have had it for 4 months now and use it every weekend. Because of the volume of wood that I am processing now, I'm thinking of a second saw, one that has a little more power, and it will be a Husqvarna. Save your time and money and invest in a Husqvarna, you will be glad that you did.

The small big 240
Never had a problem starting it the first time the tenth time or ever. Just follow the instructions. I do not think that I will ever need another saw for my smal holding cutting small/medium trees down, fire wood and general maintenance work around the house and the field.

Neighbor was Impressed
I've only used it once but I was quite impressed by it. It was light and easy to work with. My neighbor had to show me how to get it started but once he got it going it was a breeze. As a estate manager himself, he was quite impressed I had bought this chainsaw.
