A few tips particular to this machine: First, the combined kill switch/choke lever must be pulled out before being flicked upward to the choke position. Though it appears to be rugged enough for normal usage, I'm not sure this plastic lever would withstand being forced into the choke position without being pulled out first.
Second, this is a fairly high-compression engine. I strongly recommend, for safety, that the saw be held down on the ground by your foot through the handle to keep it under control when starting, rather than "drop starting" it.
Third, a word about starting. I have read a number of reviews that groused about the 440E being difficult to start. I found these complaints unwarranted, but starting technique IS important.
Here it is, in a nutshell: 1. Pull out the choke lever and flick it up to the CHOKE position. 2. Pump the transparent priming bulb 8 times - it should then be mostly full of fuel. 3. Pull (yank!) the starter cord two or three times, or until the engine "pops", or fires. 4. Flick the choke lever down to the "RUN" position. 5. Two or three pulls on the starter cord, and she'll usually fire right up.
General tips: Order yourself a set of these, from Amazon: Timber Tuff TMB-08W 8-Inch Felling Wedge, Green, 2-Pack. These plastic wedges can be hammered into the cut to free a stuck chain (or, even better, to keep your saw from getting pinched in there.) Then, get this (search it on Amazon): Timber Jack Log Jack Tool by Woodchuck. This is the best quality, strongest, all-metal log jack I've ever seen! Will lift a 10-foot section of a 20-inch diameter tree with moderate effort, and suspend it off the ground. For about 84 bucks you can save your bar, chain, and back.
Thank you utube. Not real crazy about the choke/on off switch. Seems weak. Other than that worked and started right up. I might change my rating in a couple of months if it works.
I had some problems initially starting it, but worked out the flywheel/ ignition module gap was not right. Perhaps it shifted during shipping. Once this was sorted the machine started ok and ran well for the first hour of use.
Tested on a few 6 inch logs I had ready and it cut really well for a small saw. Tried a few larger logs up to about 12-16 inches and it performed quite well. Very little hand vibration, smooth cutting. It's very light. The plastic covers will perhaps require a little more care than my old saw.
So far so good! Glad (lucky) I could sort initial problem out myself. Thanks Amazon for what looks to be a bargain.
Really can't fault the saw so far.
Just received my saw back from the repair shop. After only a half dozen uses totaling less than 1 hour of total usage, saw developed an oil leak. Saw would be sitting on the shelf in a puddle of bar oil after a short period. Repair bill was $90 or 1/3 of the price I paid for the saw. Revising my rating from 4 stars to 2
Went out to the shed to get the chain saw and found it sitting in a puddle of oil again. Seems like there may be some sort of design flaw with the oiling system.
