Fix the goddamn instructions
I read several reviews praising the tool but bashing the instructions. I figured, well, I'm a pretty smart chap (no really, a damn genius in fact & member of Mensa, FWIW). I thought if I can put together IKEA furniture, I'd be good to go. (Go look up the word 'Hubris', you'll find a picture of me & my new saw). What everyone complains about - yet failed to mention in their review was how poorly the instructions overlook stressing a few minor details that almost had me return the thing.

At issue is that the chain brake 'SNAPS' into place and unless when you push it forward you hear it lock, it hasn't locked. The second issue is that the brake MUST BE IN THE FORWARD LOCKING POSITION before you remove the cover to install the chain. If this is not done YOU ARE COMPLETELY SCREWED.

This is so important, the brake should be physically restrained in the lock position with packing material, which would cost only a few cents. OR FIX THE INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE THIS ABUNDANTLY CLEAR.

What happens is when you take off the metal component to put the blade on, that component holds the metal ring that is the mechanism that stops the axle. I was in the country of Panama and fortunately, my driver knew where there was an authorized dealer nearby that could help fix the saw.

It works like a champ after that.

The quick start guild should also be in Spanish.

GREAT SAW, IT'S A BEAST! I'd Highly Recomend.
This saw is amazing for it's power and size. I've already used it a ton and love it. This saw doesn't even compare to a poulan pro 20" or any little name brand. This saw is on the commercial scale! I have many other Husqvarna tools and Love them. This saw is easy to start every time, it only takes one to two pulls and it's going! It is on the heavy side but hay, if you want power then the little extra weight isn't a problem.
