General Comments
I've had Homelite chainsaws for many years. My last was a 360 pro, and it was a great running saw. I have not needed a saw for several years, and when the occasion arose, I went out and found what I thought would be a decent saw for occasional use. Boy, was I wrong! It has been nothing but trouble. The clutch/brake needed to be replaced immediately. I found out from the Homelite support line there was a known problem, and they sent out the parts to my local dealer to fix it. Then, within hours of starting it, the fuel line came loose and dumped gas/oil all over. I have not put more than 20 hours on the saw, probably more like single digits, and have had at least one major repair each time I've tried to use it. Money wasted. I'll never buy Homelite again!
