I bought the saw at the end of July 2017 to replace my similar sized 30 year old Homelite that decided it did not want to run any more. Since then, I’ve used the new Remington about 5 times, about an hour each time. I turn off the saw every time I stop cutting to clear the debris away (I do not let it idle on the ground).
Following the cold-start directions, the saw has started easily each time. Restarting during the job has been one pull (I’ve ignored the manufacturer’s restart steps). The saw cuts well and feels balanced when I use it. It has enough power for what I am using it for. It has easily done everything that I’ve asked it to do.
I am a homeowner with a lot of trees, but I do not burn wood. My chainsaw needs are to clean up storm damage or remove dead trees. The cuts I make are almost always less than 8 inches in diameter, usually in the 2 to 5 inch range.
When I was looking for a small chainsaw, including some of the “famous” chainsaw brands, it was unsettling that virtually every brand had 10% or more one star reviews, including this saw. I decided that the distributions of five stars to one star reviews were essentially the same for the Husqvarna I was looking at and the Remington, so I went for the cheaper price.
By the way, looking at the owner documentation, Remington is made by MTD, which is a large lawn and garden equipment company with many different brands. I was also curious about repair parts. MTD has them on its website, but no one else seems to have Remington parts. It has an Oregon chain easily available, but the Oregon replacement bar uses a different Oregon chain (MTD does offer the original bar).
At the time, I was able to buy the Remington 42cc with 16 inch bar and case, with Michigan sales tax, and a Square Trade 5 year warranty from Amazon for under $150 delivered. Note on the warranty, it is actually for 4 years after the manufacturer’s warranty expires, but they wrongly assumed a one year mfg warranty. Remington has a two year warranty, so, if I need it and the warranty works, I’m actually covered for 6 years. Bottom line, much cheaper saw, with case, and longer warranty than Husqvarna.
Is the saw perfect? Well…
As other reviews said, it leaks chain oil when stored, but no worse than my old Homelite did. I don’t know, maybe all saws leak.
The case is an ugly black cube with a sheath for the blade sticking out. The Homelite case was more contoured and “prettier”. The Remington case has space for spare chains and small bottles of 2cycle oil and chain oil. Some reviews complain about the case, but I think it is just fine.
The cold-start procedure is multi-step, but it is well documented in the owner’s manual and on two separate decals on the saw (one with just pictures, one with text). Best part is, it has worked perfectly first time every time I’ve used it (zero starting problems). The steps are turn on the ignition switch, press the clear rubber primer bulb 10 times, pull out the choke, crank 5 times (even if it tries to start, don’t fiddle with the choke), push the choke in, crank 1-5 more times. Every time, it has started for me on the first or second crank after the choke is back in (open). As I said, restarting during the job, which I do many times, is no steps, just turn the ignition on and one pull.
Speaking of cranking, it is smooth and easy. Much less effort than my Homelite, which was also a small saw.
Here’s my first and only real negative about the saw. I hate the choke. It is a pull/push button like on outboard motors from the 1950’s. No problem when the choke is in (“open”). However, the button feels like it is on a rubber band when you pull it out to close the choke. It wants to return to the in (open) position by itself. It does not like to remain in the “out” position. I keep my fingers crossed that the choke remains closed while I’m doing the first five cranks. Maybe it is designed that way so if the saw starts, the vibration automatically opens the choke.
The other negative I had when I first got the saw was that I thought it was under-powered. It wanted to bog down every time I tried cutting a branch more than 3 inches in diameter. I think the factory had set the chain far too tight and it was binding. I haven’t had this problem since I adjusted the chain.
I do like the clear rubber primer bulb. Since it is clear, you can see the gas and know whether you are trying to start or use a saw that is out of gas.
The saw has an automatic chain oiler, but no manual button to give it extra oil for a big cut (my Homelite had both).
I got the 18" version of this saw, identical except for the length of the bar. This review applies to all three versions of this saw, 14,16 18 inch.
First impression pulling the box out of the shipping box. This thing is very heavy! After getting it out of the box I found out why. The plastic case it comes with is very stout. The owners manual is very thick, about like a phone book. Once I got the saw itself out of its case I realized that the saw is about average for its size and class.
I am a saw guy. I have many. The first thing I do with any new saw is to take it apart to identify any defects and fittment issues to correct them before they can become a problem.
I am happy to say I found none. A single T25 torx and a #2 phillips is all that is needed for a teardown. All the covers come off and on easily. The bar studds and even the pivot of the chain brake are anchored in metal. The clutch cover has stout metal inserts for the stud nuts to tighten against. The side adjust chain tensioner is a great convenience.
The saw has a metal crankcase that isn't going to melt if the muffler gets loose. Ih has a bolt on cylinder for easy top end rebuilds if needed. It also has a rim drive sprocket for economical replacement and drive ratio changes. The design and construction seems first rate.
I mixed up a gallon of 40:1 mix with stabil and non ethanol 90 octane recreational gas. I followed the starting procedure on the top cover. It popped, and then I pushed in the choke as instructed and it was running on the next pull. It has a large muffler yet it still sounds like a propper chainsaw.
This saw seems to have a lot going for it. Very little plastic, easy starting, adjustible chain oiler, side chain adjustment. It cuts as good as anything with the supplied low profile safety chain. It also is constructed in such a manner that the saw hobbiest can easily modify it for increased output. I like it a lot.
The target customer of this saw probably cannot apprecieate the excelent design features of this tool. It has an adjustible carburator and a metal crankcase. There are many premium brand name saws that do not have these features at this price point.
In fairness I should mention that the anti vibration system is not as smooth as some of the spring mount systems I have used. It works well but does not isolate as well as a $600 saw. The weight is with the bar and chain mounted, full of oil and fuel mix. Ready to work. Less than a bowling ball and a lot more fun. You hold this with 2 hands after all.
I believe this saw represents a pretty good value. I rate it 5 stars
UPDATE - Used the saw maybe 5 times and after what I'm thinking of the 5th time the saw no longer wants to turn on. An oh my lard does this thing leak so much oil. Not only do you waste you money buying this saw, your gonna waste your money constantly on oil. Honestly go buy a good named brand unless you got money to waste on shit hoping it will be different for you.

Chain won't tighten. Took apart and two little gears are stripped. Makes odd screaching sound when running.
Awesome price and nice to have Canadian parts.
