There was a number of problems with the chain saw when I tried to use it the first couple of times. Hard to start, wouldn't keep running after you started it, motor smothered down when put into log, leaking chain saw oil and gas. We had to take to a repair service who kept the saw for around 8 or 9 days and he fixed it. Once I received back, the performance was ok. Should not have had these problems to begin with. Could not do what I needed to do and had to put off the jobs around the house that I had planned. Lot of phone calls and dropping off and picking up of the chain saw. We live out in the country and it is a 10 to 15 miles to the repair service.
Don't like the choke bubble, would prefer to have regular choke. Too many steps to go through to crank saw.
