Unlike our competition, both of our 42cc and 46cc Craftsman chainsaws feature aluminum frames (chassis). Aluminum chassis are much more durable and last longer than poly chassis. Poly chassis are often featured on comparable saws such as Poulan, Poulan Pro and Homelife.

Chainsaws do not have a sealed system, so some oil leakage is normal. The oil is used to lubricate the bar and chain. For best results, you should always use fresh gas and fuel stabilizer. It’s also best to use our in-store, pre-mixed 40:1 fuel.
