I have two of these saws and this Incredipull deal is the worst idea ever. The cheap plastic broke inside and wont rewind the rope now. The internal parts for the incredipull should have been made of metal. This has to have something to do with Obamacare, ripping people off with Junk like this, made by democrats… Read Full Review

Bought in 2005 for our 320 acre grain farm. Have probably 50 hours of hard use on it cutting up storm downed oak, poplar and cherry trees. I have not had any of the issues noted in the other reviews. Just got a good one I guess. I keep the chain sharp, full of bar oil,clean the bar assembly often and put a new plug in it every fall. Same with air cleaner- easy to forget that sometimes. For the $175 I paid, it's been a great value… Read Full Review

I have had my Incredipull 55cc chainsaw for about Five years. It almost always starts easily and has had no issues. I use it quite a bit. I like it! Not a fan of the "Incredipull" feature so I deduct one star. But I would buy another in the future… Read Full Review

I fell and cut up many trees with this saw. For $200 I got my money's worth several times over. It always started easily and ran great for the five years I used it. The only problem is the parts were discontinued. They have a plastic oil pump that will eventually go out as mine did. I don't regret buying it at all but wish they still made parts. I doubt I will ever buy another MTD or craftsman saw… Read Full Review

I've owned mine for about 10 years (I probably bought it when they first came out). Aside from an issue with the handle mount failing (which was fixed under a recall) this has been the best chainsaw I've owned. I live in Kansas and heat my home exclusively with wood. Primarily hardwood - hedge, oak, etc. This saw goes through it like butter as long as the chain is sharp. It starts within a couple of pulls even if it has been put away for several months. Never had issue with the start - the… Read Full Review

When you pull it to start it it winds a spring inside the starter assembly. It acts like a shock absorber. Works great until that plastic inside the assembly decides to fail. The saw has only about 10 hours or so on it. I was only trying to get Stabil into the carburetor and was giving it a little gas when it all of a sudden quit. Torn into the start assembly only to find broken plastic parts. Sears no longer sells the starter assembly nor anyone else that I can find. Junk and I am done… Read Full Review

I used the crapsman 55cc incredipull 18 inch bar 3 times started just fine the fourth time how ever was another story.When i pulled on the rope about half pull it gets really easy which it should be hence the incredi-pull system,but the rope broke tried to replace with another rope or sting but no such luck called sears but they dont sell a new starter assembly any more, no one knows any thing about this fine piece of work.Does any one know if any other rewinds off other saws fit this piece of… Read Full Review

I've been using this saw for 6 seasons and have been very satisfied with it. I cut 3-4 cords of firewood each year and find it easy to start and it has plenty of power. Just don't do like the manual says and press the primer bulb 10 times unless you want to flood it. I had to replace the handle after the first year, but the replacement handle has lasted ever since. I've replaced the bar once, and the oil tank cap needs replacing now, but other than that I've had no issues… Read Full Review

I have the 55cc 20" bar Craftsman chainsaw now for two and a bit years and it's been a very good chainsaw until yesterday.
I've used it for about 175 hours all up.
The one thing I didn't like about this chainsaw was that the chain would easily fly off when caught by very thin branches but for the larger work it was good.
Turns out the coil has failed. Pity really for such a good saw.
Anyone knows where I can get a replacement coil?… Read Full Review

Never again will I buy anything from Sears. It should be illegal to sell such a fault ridden power tool like the Sears Craftsman Incredipull 55cc Chainsaw 20". Underpowered, Looses bolts even after continually tightening them. Chain brake rattled loose and couldn't be retightened. After 10-15 hours use, engine suddenly started running/screaming rich but would stop when placed on log. Service agents refused to even look at saw, no parts. Sthil service shop tried for 2 days and couldn't tune it… Read Full Review

The craftsman 55 cc incredipull has been owned by me for 2 years and it ran pretty good when i got it but then after some considerate use and routine maintenance it started burning rich and got doggy. I have a homelite 32 cc rancher $125 saw and at times i will grab that to do the job vs the craftsman. The set screws are a round peg with a flat spot on them in a tight area. HOW STUPID is this? so much for grabbin the ol screw driver and adjusting the saw to run better. It does not run the same… Read Full Review

I just got done felling and limbing half an acre of Oak Box elder and ash today using the 18'' 55cc craftsman saw. I see many people write a review when they have had bad experiences or are dissatisfied with the product. It goes the same with everything in reviews. The craftsman saw is made by MTD which also makes the Husqvarna saws. The gas tank like all modern saws is plastic made from two halves heat pressed together. This seam will tend to be a weak point if handled carelessly. The… Read Full Review

I have to say that this chainsaw is probably the worst piece of equipment I have ever bought. The plastic handle broke so I tried to get a replacement under the recall. I've made two calls and still no handle. This past weekend I tried using the saw on some small trees, I had to finish the job with a Remington electric pole saw. The darn thing wont cut even after sharpening the chain. If it wasn't for polluting the water last weekend, I would have thrown it in the river. POS… Read Full Review

I have had the Chain Saw for about 2.5 years and it is the worst mechanical device I have ever purchased. In fact I have spent more money repairing it than what I bought it for. My other craftsman saw works great after 15 years but this Craftsman is junk, if you want a good chain saw buy Stihl, it is worth the extra $$$… Read Full Review

the craftsman incredipull 55cc 20 inch chainsaw has alot to be desired for .what i beleive is that there is a design flaw in the gas tank.the gas tank has a split tank with a gasket in the middle of it.for me what happend was that the gasket let lose between the gas tank while running'then a flash and burn.i used this saw 5 or six times at short intervales .everyone who ownes this saw should look at there gas tank. in the back corner where the tank cuves up is where the leak started there is… Read Full Review

I own the 55cc Black Craftsman saw with a 18in bar. It is not the easiest saw to start but once running, it has cut whatever I get into. I cut 4 to 7 cords of wood a year. It does vibrate the screws loose and then if not careful will melt the plastic housing that holds the bar oil. IF you use this saw, take the time to let it cool between use. You will also have to take it apart and clean it often to get it running again. If I knew then what I know now, I would of NEVER bought this saw… Read Full Review
