Wife got me this chainsaw for Christmas. Took it out of the box, put it together, fueled it, added bar oil, then started it. It ran for about 5 seconds and then sputtered out. I did get it fired up, cut a few small limbs (whi9ch it bogged down on simple 3-4 inch limbs. Once it got warmed up, it died again. It wouldn't start again. I gave it a cool down time and tried again. It started, but it will not stay running at idle. I had to keep idle high to keep it running and feathering the throttle. I tried cutting with it, it died again, and would not start again. I wouldn't reccomend this chainsaw even to my worst enemy. Will not run at idle. Bogs down on light loads. Hard to start. Chain comes loose easily. Horrible chainsaw.
