    More information

  • IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
    The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partially clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb™ uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb™ system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in air flow. This is in contrast to typical carburetors that utilize this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for small jobs! Easy on wallet I rarely use a chainsaw, but when I do I need a good one to back me up. This one is a good one for a great value. I will upgrade to bigger one but its better than the 170 for a few extra bucks.Does use ALOT of bar oil and mix. Prepare to refill and refill and refill

Rated 1 out of 5 by from complete gargage.nothing good to say. I bought this product to support made is the USA.Well,it was a huge mistake.Do not waste your money on this garbage product from stiel.I used this chainsaw twice,It has no power,It does not start.Complet Junk.I took it back to the dealer after the second time I used it because it would not start.The only thing this chainsaw is good for is to cut 1 inch limbs off a tree.Anything more than that,It's way too much for this cheap saw to go through.
