Background and Identification
The Craftsman brand began in the 1920s bought by Sears. The manufacturer grew over time selling all kinds of different power tools. The Husqvarna group used to owned Craftsman and so many other power tool brands but now much bigger manufacturer took over the brand. The group is called Stanley Black & Decker. In 2014, Sears launched their Pro Series chainsaws lineup of gas, cordless, corded, and battery. Those who own chainsaws may say that they are quite powerful. This is really convenient when it comes to felling trees. The Craftsman chainsaw is known to be able to work effectively and quietly.
The Craftsman chainsaws can weight up to 21lbs. depending on the dimension. If handled with proper safety, a chainsaw can be a labor saver. It is a powerful tool that can clear through tree felling, limbing, bucking, pruning, harvesting of firewood, and so much more. The Craftsman chainsaw comes in “liberty red” color and is equipped with lots of great features. The craftsman chainsaw does come with an extra chain and the 2 in 1 oil you need to run it. The model number can be found either on the side of the motor casing located on the back or at the bottom. Many Craftsman chain saws operate with a 50:1 fuel oil mixture. Models that were sold before 2010, for example the 18 inch, 50 cc model from 2006, and the 18 inch 42 cc model from 1997 all require a 40:1 mixture. The main parts of a chainsaw are the engine, pull start, throttle lock, throttle, bumper spikes, chain, nose, guide bar, chain brake, and front handle. The Craftsman chainsaw line extends up to almost 20 models.
