I have run this saw way harder than most homeowners. A tank of gas is good for a couple hours of cutting. I've probably been through 75 tanks of gas in 3 years. The toolless tensioner was not a factor when I bought it, but I love it now. I can easily adjust the chain tension while up in a tree, with one hand; try that with a wrench and screwdriver. This saw always starts. I have dropped it in a river twice. The first time I took it to the shop; they charged me $65 to "fix" it, and change out the gas. The second time, I pulled out the plug, dried it in the sun for awhile, put it in (even though I could still see water in the cylinder), and it started, coughed a bit, then blew out the water and ran great ever since.
I run straight vegetable oil for bar oil, ever since the first tank of oil. Mostly canola oil, which says liquid in the cold, but peanut, soy or whatever works. Look on some of the threads on arboristsite dot com; there are pros who have been using straight veggie oil for bar oil, for years, and they are all for it; some say it works better than conventional bar oil, and its cheaper! It stays on the bar fine. You don't have to buy the expensive vegetable bar oil formulations, which are very popular in Europe, and recommended by the Forest Service.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
The first use of the saw, it was very easy to start and run. There was no issue with re-starting it, according to the instructions.
The second use of the saw, it started as expected. However, warm starts are challenging. The saw gets cold so quickly that every start should be performed as a cold start, unless you stall it and immediately attempt to re-start it. Adding fuel / chain oil to the saw should be seen as a cold start. Warm starts are not as easy as cold starts, for some reason, and I had to pull 10-15x to get it to re-start after adding fuel. Make sure you research how to start this chainsaw properly, because it is very picky. There are some good resources online, and in Amazon reviews.
UPDATE: After about a few weekends of heavy work, I have found that the saw is actually easier to start. You get really good at putting the choke in the starting position, pushing 6 times on the bulb, and yanking 1-2x until it revs briefly. Then, you put it back into Run position and pull 1-2x until it starts. It's been awesome! Can't wait to cut a cord or 2 for winter.
I had a problem where I was cutting some large rounds (probably 24-36" in diameter) and the saw seemed to run out of chain oil. I'm not sure why, because I looked inside and there seemed to be plenty left. I filled up the chain oil again, and it seemed to work.
The saw will leak a little oil when it is not in use. I found that the carrying case (box) was very convenient, because the oil just collects in the bottom, and I can just wipe it up occasionally.Read more ›
