Customer reviewsBroke twice, same part - motor bracket
I really wanted to like this saw but after two failures I have to rate it one star. The first saw failed after 100 cuts or so. It started to make a grinding noise and the chain would not move. One year later the replacement saw failed with the same problem a broken motor bracket see attached picture . I checked for a replacement part only to find that it is not available. I tried holding a magnet to the part but it would not stick no iron, possible pot metal Whatever the material it obviously is not a good design. The four year warranty is nice but not worth much if the saw keeps breaking, especially when it takes two months for repairs.
