I did a little research and found that the manufacturer code, 358, is Poulan, who is owned by Husqvarna. This chainsaw is made in America, and is the identical model to the Poulan Pro 5020AV. It took a number of pulls to get the engine started the first time. I believe this was because it shipped as a brand-new, dry engine, having never had a lick of gas run through it. I found that persistence paid off, and it eventually started. I broke-in the engine WITHOUT ANY CUTTING by moderately running through a couple tanks of gas and bar/chain oil. I then cut through an eighth cord of wood to finish the break-in. I hope to get many years of use. I learned from research that it is important to mix your gas ONLY with 2-cycle oil designed for air cooled engines. Use oil designated with the Japanese standard JASO-FB, -FC or -FD, or European standard ISO-L-EGB, -EGC or -EGD, or America standard API-TB, -TC or -TD. The 'B's, 'C's and 'D's among the three groups roughly correspond. DO NOT USE MARINE OIL with the designation TC-W3, because this is ashless oil that will not provide the mineral additives needed to lubricate chainsaws' higher-revving, hotter air-cooled engines.

Worked good for 2 hours

Took it out of the box brand new and used it for appx. 2 hours then the brake handle broke. Called the store and was told it would have to go to a service technician. Last Craftsman anything I buy. The quality is no longer there!!

Amazing Chainsaw


I love this chainsaw. It's a workhorse and I've gone through a million chains but still using the same bar. I've cut down forests in my back yard

Overall performance


It?s easy to operate. It starts easy, easy to handle, cuts pretty well. It cuts smoothly, maybe slightly underpowered. The choke slide is a little flimsy. Overall, I?m satisfied.

Worse Saw I Ever Owned


2 years and ONE MONTH after purchase, yes, a month after the warranty expired, so did the saw. Keeping it cleaned, maintained and in good working order and the engine died. I took it to my local repair shop after replacing the plug, air filter, fuel lines and filter but was unable to get the saw started. After checking it, it was determined that the engine was blown. Rather than purchasing another Craftsman chainsaw, I purchased another brand. For $200, I thought I would get a little more life out of this. Stay away from this saw!
