        don't put pressure on the bar, will kickback fairly easily. sizable chips-just let the chain cut its way in without putting undue pressure on bar.

          Comments about 40cc Gas 18-in Rear Handle Chain Saw:

          Two cycle engines are very finicky, if you get a hard to start one it will never change. This saw is very easy to start, just two pulls the first time and only one pull after it warms up. Cuts thru green oak and mesquite like butter.
          Super pleased with the quality and the multipurpose wrench is a great design.
          So far I have not found anything I don't like about this saw.

              Q:

              I bought a hitachi chainsaw CE40EA and it stopped working . I took it to a repair shop and the technecian disassembled the machine and found that the piston skirt had broken off. I am trying to find a replacement piston with great difficulty. I checked on google, got a part number and checked with hitachi distributors with no success. Any suggestions
