    Once started, the saw cuts well. The problem is that it doesn't start until you have become exhausted and furious with the pull cord, which sometime locks entirely and sometimes stutters and sometimes pulls without turning a thing. I have tried two new saws with fresh gas/oil and both were nearly impossible to start within the limits of sanity. I have never experienced a more frustrating piece of 2-cycle machinery in my life. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT (Home Depot should drop the entire line).

    I bought this saw to use around the yard it it did a decent job the 1st time I used it. It was very hard starting then but after it warmed up it started fine. I put it in the garage and got it out 2 days later and it had leaked bar oil all over the garage floor and would not start. The plus side is Home Depot refunded my mo ney no questions asked! My other Homelite saw was bought by my grandparents in the 1960's and was used on their farm for 40 years. Then it was given to me. It still runs great but is so heavy I opted for a newer and lighter one. I will just keep on using the back breaking 50 yr old saw!

    I knew this was an inexpensive and possibly not great quality chainsaw but I only needed it to cut about 10 trees that have been lying in my yard for a while. It was a little hard to start, even after it warmed up and it took me a while to get the idle adjusted correctly. I got what I paid for and it did what I expected.

    I used this saw for 4-5 hours last year and put it away when it wouldn's run correctly. This year I got it out to try to work on it (which you shouldnt have to do this soon after purchasing) and I found that the problem was the fuel line was broke and the fuel filter was laying in the bottom of the tank. How does this happen?

    I bought this out of need because of the massive October storm in the northeast. It is an unrelaible chain saw and very difficult to start when cold..Don't waste your money

    I was really disappointed with the quality of the saw. The chain adjustment is made out of plastic and not easy to adjust. The chain guard prevents movement when cutting and it has no power. The chain was dull after cutting up one limb about 15 feet long.

    I purchased this during the week in expectation of a nice Saturday afternoon clearing the yard. I was very excited. I put a fresh gas/oil mixture together-read the manual-got the safety goggles and gloves on-got ready to get going and....nothing. What a disappointment. Engine did not start. I read and re-read the directions. I brought the unit back on Sunday and was refunded my money.

    It started easily and ran great. After a few minutes the chain jumped off. But after I put it back on and kept it adjusted it did not jump off again. However, after about an hour of use, the engine locked up. I was very disappointed because is was working great until it froze up.

    i watched a guywith his own homelite 14" cut a china berry stump at ground level, the stump was not a typical round stump this thing was probably 3-4 feet in an irregular shape, and had two 8" runner roots3 feet long that he cut horizontal level with the ground, the saw never gave up , the chain did dull because some how their was some wire in tree, probaly a close hanger or something. i do not fault the chain, the tree was close to 40 years old, so no telling, it ran wide open for about 3-4 hours, started on first pull every time. China berry trees are very hard, but not as hard as mesquite, worth the money yes, since their are so many home depots around i would definatly just go get one their, i think me and my son are going to buy one and spilt the cost.

    Bought this on sale for $99. Brought it home, it did not start. Exchanged it for another one, same model, same problem. You have to jiggle to choke to get it to start (not good). After 5-6 uses it does not work. I would not recommend this chainsaw if you want to own one for longevity. However, the price beats renting a chainsaw for a weekend, so as I say, its a disposable chainsaw. Hopefully it lasts longer than a few uses.

    Good, safe, easy to use workhorse chain saw for basic wood cutting. Just right size for carrying around in trunk of car and harvesting wood stove size firewood. I have used this Brand and others and see no difference in utility, so I just went by price.

    The actual saw that was in the box did not match the saw that was on display - the display saw had a better chain adjusting system than the purchased saw - the saw was given as a gift other wise it would have been returned for exchange - next time the box will be opened and inspected before purchasing.

    The cover that allows you to tighten the chain strips out very easily and the saw becomes useless. The cost to fix it is higher than the saw it self.

    Boss owns one of these saws and he has me repair it at least once a week. If you need a cheap saw then it is fine if you are a little harder own your equipment then i would buy a better brand

    Good thing I was a logger for most of my life and have my own saws for cutting firewood. My neighbor bought one of these saws and couldn't start it. I asked if he mixed the gas right and he insisted it was.After dumping out his gas I put mine in and three pulls it was running. Smoked for the first while because he had so much oil in his fuel. I used up a tank of gas cutting wood and it worked just fine.He brought the saw to me with a full tank of gas but the chain oil was almost empty. I bet some of the chain problems people have is because they run them dry. Ordinary engine oil will work just fine if you run out of chain oil. If you mix the gas right (very important) and keep the oiler full you shouldn't have any problems.That anti kickback thing at the tip of the bar would be the first thing to go if it was my saw. After reading all the negative reviews I felt the saw was getting a bad rap because people just don't know anything about them.

    Bought this saw for light work around the yard. Should have spent the extra cash for a grown up one. Worked a few times OK but got harder and harder to start. Got to the point that it just wouldnt start at all. Eventually got it to start but chain wont turn...adjusted over and over.. Bought the saw to cut with, not learn chain saw maintenance...Buy something else.

    I received Homelite's 35cc 14in chainsaw as a gift. I got to use it once for 30 minutes during Sandy. Brother threw out receipt and Homelite will not stand by their product. The chainsaw would not start. Then the starter spring disengaged from the pull cord spindle. This was a poorly designed and low quality chainsaw. If I could give negative stars I would. Stay away...far away from their products. Customer serivice would not help. Junk!!!

    I have owned this chainsaw for about 3-5 years and hardly ever used it because it was difficult to start and the erogonomics was downright painful. I finally purchased a better chainsaw and will be throwing this one away. To anyone looking at this chainsaw for camping or trimming, don't buy it! It is simply a waste of money.

    After reading consumer reviews on line, I was ambivalent about purchasing this product. Negative reviews far outnumbered positive reviews. Maybe problems in my chainsaw will develop over time, but my initial experience has been everything I had hoped for. The chainsaw does what it is supposed to do. It is the right size for me and for my needs. Terrific value - so far.

    The easiest saw that I have used. I have a Craftsman, Poulan, McCullough, and 2 Homelites. The Homelites give me the least trouble. I have had very good success with this chainsaw. It is easy to start and runs well. It is very light and powerful. It outperforms the bulky Craftsman. Always use the right fuel/oil mix and keep it lubricated, and you will have trouble free operation.

    I agree with the other comments that this chainsaw was problematic to get started the first time, but once it gets going, it is very effective, I have used it for pruning and removal of small trees, So far, good bang for the buck when one considers how much "landscaping professionals" charge.

    This is the first chainsaw I've ever purchased and needed it to maintain large oaks on my property. Out of the box the saw functioned well, but after the first time it has been extremely difficult to start. Even when running the saw will stop suddenly...this is frustrating when you're up a ladder. However, when the saw runs and operates properly it cuts solid oak easily. The reliability is the huge downside for me and a saw shouldn't drive you to the brink of madness just to get it started.
