wild thing problems are mostly the chain

Pros:lightweight, powerful, very easy to use

Cons:Chain that comes with it and recommended replacement chains are absolute GARBAGE!

The Bottom Line: Very good saw, just throw the factory chain away and buy a proffesional grade chain


The biggest problem with the "Wild Thing" or most other non commercial saws, isn't the saw. It's the piece of garbage Oregon chains they put on them. These pathetic excuses for chains do more damage to saws than anything else. They are case hardened mild steel.......translation.......they are made of mild steel which is fairly soft and the cutting edge areas of the chain links are tempered. Once you do a little serious cutting you wear through the hardened edge and can't keep a chain sharp. Solution got to your local mower shop and buy a STIHL fast cut chain. They are $20-$25 and they work awesome! The chips that fly off of one of these chains when they are dull are bigger than an Oregon chain when it is new. Or, if you really want to get some cutting done, order a carbide tipped chain. They are very expensive but for most people it will be the last chain you ever buy. These are what the fire dept. uses. They will cut through nails, fencing, or just about anything else you would find in a tree, with very little effect on the chain. Another helpful tip........use sae30 synthetic or synthetic blend. It is more expensive, but again, seriously reduces wear on the chain and bar. Meaning less adjusting, less vibration......less overall wear and tear on the saw.
