Does the job
I bought this to do some tree cleaning around the house. It has done a great job and I would recommend this to a friend. I do wish it was easier to start.

Grreat basic duty chainsaw
This saw is perfect for the average user. Someone that uses the saw like I do could not be happier. You get the Husqvarna name and quality for a great price point. This 240 cost me $179 and is well worht it. There are cheaper saws out there for this type of use, but thats what t hey are --- CHEAPER. For occasional firewood cutting to seasonal tree trimming, this smaller lighter saw can't be beat.

I had some trouble when I first got this saw.(hard to start chain keps poping off)But... It was all my fault..Read instructions and use 89+ octane gas and husky's synthetic mix.I had a custom chisle chain made for it and all I got to say is... It is a little beast! I use it atleast 3 days a week (firewood buisiness)It cuts better than some of my larger saws.If you use it alot.. keep up on the maitenence on it and it will serve you well.This is my first husqvarna saw and I'm seriously impressed.I will soon going to buy a 440 and a 460 saw to replace my other saws When you first buy this saw break it in properly and you will love it!

My wife had purchased other small chain saws (being price conscious) and I have had to return them for one reason or another. For the work I am doing the H240 might be considered by others to be too small for the job, but I find that this unit is a real work horse. If has worked for me from the first time out of the box. It has been relatively easy to use (especially for a novice like me). No starting issues, etc. I am learning to maintain it and it is performing well for me. I did by a maintenance contract &/or extended warranty with it.

really like this saw, light weight, great cutting action, can't beat the price.
I only wish my saw was easier to start.
after taking it out of the box, tried to start couldn't do had to take it back to the store where the mechanic had to make adjustment even now its hard to start, it would take about 10 pulls to start.

leaking oil and gas
i just purchased the 240. i have not used it more than 4 hours before noticing that it was leaking oil and gas. i wouldn't say that it pours out, but it constantly drips oil and a stream of gas comes out especially when tipped on it's side. i have read a few other reviews that mention the same problem - wish i had read them before i bought it. unfortunately all the reviews that mention this i found else where than this site. so i figured it important to make sure this site had this information also.
i will probably return this saw and not bother trying to resolve it. it is not really worth my time. plus another thing is that there seems to be something wrong with the gears as it sounds and feels a bit lose when cutting.
another thing is it is a bit tricky to get it started so you do have to follow the instructions carefully. still a bit hard to start though.
