Craftsman chainsaw 42 cc 18” Gas
This Craftsman chainsaw model features a 42 cc full crank engine and a 18-inch guide bar that are intended to tackle any homeowner’s cutting needs. Whether you clean up a couple of trees on your yard or cut some logs for firewood, this model is right for the job. It is also equipped with a tool-less chain adjustment for easy tensioning called Craftsman EZ adjust bar. It comes in a carrying case for better storage and protection of the chainsaw.
I was going through the reviews online and then purchased this one by mistake. I plan to buy the chainsaw with the higher rating, so when this came to our house, I said to myself this isn’t the chainsaw I wanted. Before opening the package, I run through the reviews again. There were really issues about it such as it is troublesome to start and chain is falling off (quite creepy and dangerous). I have never owned a chainsaw before so I’m a rookie for that matter. However, I do have common sense and not to say, resourceful – I research things. If you’re thinking I’m off for a lumberjack job – No.
When other people say about the chain falling off, what they mean is that the new chain stretches and eventually falls off. What I did was cut a fallen tree for few minutes. When the chain falls, I used the tool that came with this product. The easy adjust tool provided quick adjustment and I was able to cut again. Came across the problem several times but I think this is common for new chain.
To sum it up, just 2 problems:
One, the chain keeps on becoming loose – maybe it’s about adjustment or chain wearing. Not sure though. Second, I found out that the chain lube system drips oils. It’s messy. When I put the chainsaw on the table to adjust the chain or on the ground, the oil just freely drips.
Craftsman 19.2 Volt 10” Cordless Chain Saw
Craftsman’s 10” cordless chainsaw is a very simple tool to use. Being a part of the C3 platform, it has a 19.2 volt battery that provides you the power you need while giving you a lightweight and compact feel. It is designed with the over mold on the handles to decrease the chances of fatigue while increasing comfort. It comes with a push button oiler to lubricate the chain whenever you have to. The oil window makes it convenient for the user to know when to add more.
This Craftsman chainsaw is highly recommended for light cutting jobs. It is handy yet needs a fully-charged battery to keep you on the go. It consumes NiCads pretty quickly though. I would suggest you use Lithium-ion batteries if you use this tool since it would last longer and gives the chain powered-up performance providing you undisturbed work. The oil delivery system for the chain works well but is a hassle sometimes. It is really lightweight and certainly befitting for small cutting jobs.
