    ** Updated..
    Unfortunately the 2nd one is going back. As is described in other posts, the blade is starting to have “play” vertically up and down in regards to the chassis. No amount of tightening the screws resolves this issue.

    The saw otherwise performed great. The 2nd one had no other issues cutting the logs to size. No melting of the casing, and the chain didn’t throw once. Beware “all metal parts” as in fact a significant portion of this saw is plastic, and apparently an integral part of the blade attachment.

    — Original review follows:
    I want to like this saw. Wanted an upgrade from a tiny 14″ Homelite electric that served me well for over 10 years, plus I had some new logs to prep for the season approaching.

    Unboxed it on Thursday. First issues encountered. The grey casing was loose. As in there was a 1/4″ gap in the housing, and its visibly loose. That’s not right. Thought maybe it got jostled in shipping, so tightened up all the screws I could find, and all seemed right. Second issue: The blade cover included looks to be incorrect. It was red, about 3″ too short, and was way too tall for the narrow blade. This one isn’t huge but still a letdown, and made me feel iffy on the overall product.

    Followed instructions, primed the oil pump, tightened the tension on the saw, and got to work. About 30 minutes in, the chain jumped off the bar. Stopped, took it apart, put the chain back and retensioned. Maybe I didn’t go tight enough so I gave it a little more. Another couple minutes goes by, and a few cuts later, and the chain jumps again. Hmm…

    This went on about 4 more times, at which point I was frustrated, and looked closer, where I discovered the casing had melted, causing the gear to now be mis-aligned (it’s acting as a ramp to push the chain off, now). Total time working, from start to failure? About 90 minutes. And I know I wasn’t overworking the saw, having used the little Homelite as I mentioned before, that has plastic drive gears, and was an economy saw.

    Insult to injury, I called the 800 warranty number, to find they were closed (hours 7a-4p PST) and reading further, the manual states I need to cover shipping both ways?! what’s this bull….

    Fortunately Amazon is awesome, and overnighted me a replacement saw by 10am Saturday. No charge. I just sent the defective one back off. (I have the S/N if the company wants to investigate, since I did not utilize the warranty process)

    Interesting things to note. The new one came with a proper blade cover. Black, and form fitted to the saw blade. All screws were tight. Took about 5 minutes to prime the oil pump vs the last one at 2.5 minutes, although the weather was cooler, perhaps the oil was thicker.

    I was able to perform a day of cutting without issue, and the replacement looks no worse for wear. We’ll see if it holds up.

    Other interesting notes: The new saw has a different label, the colors are “reversed” (the old was OREGON in white, with a red background, no border, whereas the new one has OREGON in red, with a white background and a red border. The S/N is printed as part of the label rather than a sticker applied after the fact. The box is similarly different matching each saw, although the model # is the same on both.

    Unfortunately the experience has left me leery of the replacement saw. I am hopeful that it will continue to function, and if it makes it through the next 30 days with me operating it I will give it more stars.

    It’s a bit of a misnomer when they say it’s got metal parts. The drive gear, sure, and maybe the internal parts too (I did not look) the housing is plastic, and seemingly prone to melting. And when that happens the whole thing is shot.

    Good heavily built unit, easy to set up out of the box. Comes with a great step by step instructional sheet. Like other reviewers RED and understand the instructions! !
    Comes with small bottle of chain oil. The instructional sheet guides you to take the cover off and directs you how to adjust the chain tension and reinstall the cover. This is easy to do and important to feel comfortable with as one needs to regularly take this cover off to clean the area of saw dust and debris
    My first use today… Used to limb a tree… cut through a ten inch limb like butter, and it operates nice and quite.
    The chain sharpening feature looks interesting, will update review later when I use same for the first time.
    First impressions are great, have used several gas saws before, always a major pain to start and maintain, also have used a borrowed Remington electric, which was noisy, extremely hard to clean, always dull and did not cut worth a dam, so this unit does impress
    Have a yard with 50 trees so there is always a cutting project, expect this little saw to work great for me. Shipping was fast, arrived ahead of expected delivery date!

    This is an amazing value for a simple powerful easy and quiet chainsaw. No muss no fuss, like I had with the 3 gas-powered chainsaws still in my garage that I can’t afford to repair.

    All those 1-star ratings? About the chain popping off, or plastic fittings, or worked then didn’t work? . . . I’m pretty sure those people didn’t read and follow the instructions .

    Mine arrived with the chain off, which was annoying at first — so I read the instructions, took the casing apart, figured out how it works, and then paid attention to it while I was using it. Turns out it was a good thing after all, because it forced me to learn about it — or I would have just plugged it in, fired it up, and maybe had some of those problems.

    I’m 6 trees in over 3 days, they are 14-16″ swamp maples, about 600 cuts or so, and i’m just now thinking about sharpening the chain for the first time.

    I have taken off the casing twice, to clean out the oily sawdust — and the chain only popped off once, when I didn’t check the tension every 20 cuts or so like I had been doing. It’s also important to keep the oil chamber filled, but you can tell when it runs dry, the sound changes.

    So read the instructions, don’t rush, and let the saw do it’s job — just like the instrutions say.

    Good value and performance for the money. Comes ready to go and cuts very well. Large bar size makes it versitile for both big and small jobs. Not too heavy to manage and chain stop works well when power is disengaged. Only drawback seen so far…chain immediately fell of the bar and required adjustment twice to get it to stay on. There is a chain tension adjustment knob so hopefully this will not be an ongoing issue.

    I’ve used a couple of electric chain saws before and this one is at least as good, and probably better than all of them. It is quite quiet for a chain saw, it cut well, and the stop is almost instantaneous. It is true when they say it is quite balanced – I never felt like I had to compensate one way or the other when operating it. First job with it, I had to cut through a tangle of roots so I would frequently end up cutting through hidden layers of dirt, clay and rocks. The blade got dull pretty quickly but that would be expected of any blade in the circumstances. The auto sharpener came in handy. That feature worked pretty well – don’t think it is as good as by hand but it sure is A LOT quicker and was all I needed.

    I love this chainsaw. I had two gas chainsaws and every time I would take them out to use, they wouldn’t start or they ran like crap. I bought this Oregon electric chainsaw and have never looked back. Awesome product!!!

    The main reason I am writing this review is to comment on all of the reviews that mention the chain falling off. These people have no idea what they are doing. I have never had the chain fall off while using this chainsaw. I suspect the chain oiler is clogged or they are not setting up the chain tension per the included instructions. If the oiler is not pumping oil on the bar, then the chain will heat up and EXPAND!!! This will cause many problems including the chain falling off the bar.

    An easy way to tell if the chain oiler is working is to hold the tip of the bar close to a log that you are going to cut. Run the chainsaw at full speed and you should see oil splatter onto the wood. If you see no oil hitting the wood, then your oiler is not working. Stop and figure out why. If you continue and the chain and bar are dry, I guarantee your chain will start falling off and parts will start to melt like one of the reviewers on here.

    If your chainsaw is not pumping oil then read the manual. If you still can’t figure it out, contact Oregon. This is where you will see Oregon shine. Excellent support!!!

    I cut down 12 twenty-five foot spruce trees and also cut all their branches off with the chain that came with the saw. Some of the trunks had two-foot diameters. The saw had lots of power, cut well and performed flawlessly, and I could not be happier with this purchase. I highly recommend this saw for anybody who wants to have an electric chain saw.

    This is my first power tool I have purchased through Amazon. I have been hesitant for the very reason I am rating this a 1/5 – it arrived with an issue that makes it unusable. When i first opened the box and began inspecting the saw the cap twisted off with a lot of effort. When i tired to put it back on it did not want to go on. My photos show why – somebody must have cross-threaded it with a lot of force. Even when i carefully thread it perfectly, the cap only goes on half way. Seems like a silly little issue, but having oil constantly dripping all over would not be safe. I waited a long time for this tool to arrive and now I am expecting a lot of effort and waiting on my part to resolve this.
