I purchased this chainsaw last November and i9t has been in the repair shop twice, the first time because it would not start. After two weeks I got it back with no explanation except, "now it works", no charge. Then as I was cutting up sit stopped and I could not get it started, It's been in the shop about a month now, claims the piston seized and waiting for approval from Husqvarna for a warranty replacement. I probably had only 3 to 4 hours of use on it. If your reading this, Husqvarna, please authorize a replacement machine.

How low can the rating go. For value, the chainsaw has yet to run properly. This was purchased at a major retail DIY chain store. Upon trying to start it, it sounded like there was an air/fuel mixture issue, and it shut off every time the throttle was engaged. No cutting possible! So, the saw was taken to an authorized repair shop, who replaced the spark plug and adjust the air/fuel mixture. It started fine. Upon getting the chain saw home, it has yet to start despite repeated attempts to do so.

Factory reconditioned saw did not work
Received the saw on 4/10/13. I assembled it and used proper gas & oil. It would not start. I took it to 2 authorized service centers and they confirmed it had no spark. I returned the saw and got a refund.

An Amazing Saw
I got this saw today to cut some limbs, logs, and brush in my backyard. I had never used or purchased a chainsaw before, but let me tell you this 240 packs a serious punch, while being extremely easy to use. Couldn't have been happier to spend the $210 in this little piece of heaven!

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH A REFURB
I got a refurb'd 240 and i'm regretting it now. It seems that they really don't do a good job reconditioning these. The first time I used my 240, it leaks and spits chain and bar oil all over the place when I use it. Now I will have to waste my time and money to find a Husqvarna dealer to get it worked on.

A true quality product
I have 20 acres of cherry trees. I use my Husqvarna model 240 every day and I couldn't ask for more. light, easy to use, handling and more makes this a giant in a small package. I don't know what I would do without it. You can't go wrong with a Husqvarna.

Good utility saw
A solid saw for the value. Plenty of power for yard work.
