Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for CRAFTSMAN 18-in 42-cc 2-Cycle Gas Chainsaw. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.50 stars, and the price range is $110 - $179.

Made by one of the most trustworthy names in tool making and hardware, the CRAFTSMAN 18-in 42-cc 2-Cycle Gas Chainsaw is expertly crafted and ready to get working right out of the box. The chainsaw is lightweight, made of a mix of metal and plastic pieces, but hardy, able to cut through even the thickest pieces of wood in minutes or less. 

Some of the best features include the fact that the chainsaw is ready to be used almost immediately upon receipt. Buyers can enjoy its smooth cut, long duration of use, and consistence as soon as they receive it. Some customers are even impressed that the chainsaw comes oiled with fuel already inside. Whether the chainsaw is used on tree stumps, small branches, full trees, or other dense materials, customers say this chainsaw works just as well as others on the market to cut right through evenly and smoothly. Another highlighted feature includes the ease to get the chainsaw started in the first place in just one pull.

Some customers were unhappy that the chainsaw has a bit of a kick back when revved up. Since the item has quite the motor in it, it can vibrate a bit during use, as well. However, this is expected with a handheld tool.

Saved me a lot of time as it goes through logs like a hot knife through butter.
