Good motor and chain, but because of the chain wheel system I give it only two stars. It ALWAYS gets stuck!


Makita is a good brand but this chainsaw is the worst thing they have, the other models without the "special" chain wheel are good. I don't recommend buying this model

Reliable little saw


I have had this saw for about 18 months. It starts within two to three pulls and runs well. The only problem I have with it is that it breaks the e-clip that retains the chain drive sprocket and washer. The e-clip only costs $1, but it is a pain to have to stop the saw, let it cool and then fit the new e-clip, after finding finding where it dropped the chain retention washer. During two days of heavy use, I broke three of these clips. Other than that, it is a great little saw.

Date PurchasedFeb 2017
