For now I just use the box it came in. You can contact the manufacturer
or check a local chain saw dealer to see if they have a case compatible with the saw size.

Not usually, some higher end electric saws do. You can buy one though. They are not much for the small case.

No. First, chainsaws are not made for that. Secondly, this saw doesn't even cut pretty for a chainsaw. You would have better luck cutting shelves with an axe than with a chainsaw. But please don't try that either.

If you have a marked line to follow and have a steady hand, go ahead. I would use a jigsaw, circular saw, or a miter saw.

The 5/32" answers are WRONG. I bought one and it is WAY too small. Also, after looking in the manual, under the chain info it says "Pitch = 3/8", so I'm guessing it's 3/8"...

You need to use a 5/32 file for the 14 inch chain. Or get the Oregon file kit. It has a file guide to help you properly sharpen the chain.

just cut a 21 inch diameter 60-65 ft pine tree down and cut it up in about 7 hrs, done it with no problem, be sure to keep oil in it and dont use it for too long of a time, give the motor time to cool down, do not force your cuts either

I just used it yesterday to take down a tree that was about 10" diameter tree trunk. Be very careful but if you know how to do it this chainsaw will do the job. I looked up online how to make the notch and then the back cut and it worked perfectly. For the record, I'm a 53 year old female. If I can do it anyone can. I LOVE this saw.

answer 1
Mine oils the chain without me doing anything. It just drips on the blade constantly, which makes a mess when I put it away after use. A better question might be how to stop it from oiling the chain and everything else for that matter.
answered 1 year, 8 months ago
By

answer 2
That was one of my questions. Difficult to see if the chain is getting oiled. I probably will keep an oil can by my side next time I use it to oil the chain occasionally.
answered 1 year, 11 months ago
By

answer 3
I wondered the same thing, but the oil definitely does come out to oil the blade when the cap is pushed. I pushed a few too many times at first and had too much oil on the blade.

I've fallen up to 12" diameter trees with this saw. The saw does fine when not pushed while cutting these larger sizes. Use a gas power saw for most limbs and trees with a diameter above 12", in my opinion.

Technically can cut tree limbs up to 28" in diameter but that would be a maximum performance. I would recommend this unit more for pruning and occassional limb cutting up to 14" in diameter.
