    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power House with no weight Excellent, powerful and light weight. I like this better than the CS590. This chainsaw will be great for most people and some professional lumber jacks

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great medium saw This saw is just right for the person who does not need a pro saw, but still needs a powerful tool. It is strong, well built and straightforward. I have been falling medium trees, making small slabs and bucking firewood with it and it is doing very well. It starts well every time, and has enough power to take on some pretty tough cuts...makes short work of limbing and bucking. I’m quite happy with it.

    The overview advertises that this is a light saw at only 10 lbs but the specs say it is 17 pounds? which is it?

    Asked by: Stephen
    Hi Stephen, thank you for your question. This saw has a dry weight of 10.6 lbs without the bar and chain as those can range in size and weight depending on the customer. This saw specifically is actually manufactured in 3 standard bar sizes--16", 18" and 20", and is compatible with even more through bar manufactures like Oregon. The 17.598 lb weight is just in reference to the shipping packaging which includes the box, inserts, saw, bar, chain, tip guard, wrench and literature.

    what length of bar and chain does the saw come with and what maximum bar and chain length can you put on that saw ? I am using saw for personal use for the 5 year warranty and am wondering if the saw needs repairs do I bring it in to the store or where

    Asked by: daniel
    Hello Daniel, thank you for your question. The CS-490, through The Home Depot, comes standard with a 20" Oregon ProAm Double Guard Bar with 20" Oregon Micro Chisel Chain. This unit is also manufactured in 16" and 18" bar sizes as well, but they are not currently available through The Home depot. You could probably equip the saw with a larger bar, but it is not factory recommend to exceed 20" and it will slow your cutting speed. Also, the CS-490 is designed to be one of the physically lightest 50 cc commercial-grade saws on the market, so the extra weight from the bar might disservice one of it's best features.
