My wife bought me this saw after my 25 year old Poulan would not start. The first use was good, then a coil failure. Got it back from repair would not idle down. Tried to cut some fallen trees needed a new bar and chain. Bought a new bar and chain, cut 1 face cord needed a new bar! This is a piece of you guessed it! I am now using my 25 year old Poulan, its great!
