Great buy for the money, delivers the goods. Motor is crisp and efficient. Cuts everything in front of it no problems whatsoever. I am pleased with the purchase.
Chain continually came off which required taking it apart and resetting chain. Very annoying based on description stating it was an easy adjustment. It's junk Craftsman and Sears does not stand by it. Now I have to buy another one but not from Sears.
I have used my 16" electric saw and just like all the other Craftsman tools that I own, it worked to perfection. It cut some stumps that I have been wanting to remove from my yard, and it cut like butter! I highly recommend this saw to anyone that prefers electric over a gas engine saw.
JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE SAYS, THE CHAIN FALLS OFF QUITE A BIT, ALSO ORDER OIL WITH THIS PRODUCT.I CUT DOWN 5 SMALL FRUIT TREES, CHAIN FELL OFF ABOUT 10 TIMES. NOW THE CHAIN NEEDS REPLACEMENT DUE TO BEING DULL.
Problem is you will spend more time putting chain back on then cutting wood .. 2 thumbs down .
I haven't used it much yet. Just did a quick test. It seems to be sturdy. I bought this to replace a 25 year old McCulloch saw. I hope this one lasts as long.
