Remington electric chainsaw saga update

Jim Miles - Charlotte N C
>I have posted over the past 6 - 8 months about my experience with Remington electric chainsaws. They keep dieing on me. They apparently overheat with little use, start sparking, smoking and die. It is obviously a manufacturing defect. I have been through 8 in the past 18 or so months, and I really don't use it much. At least Lowes has let me exchange the old for a new one at no cost. The benefit is I have never had to sharpen the chain - just trade it in on a new one. Ha Ha !

Well # 8 died last weekend on some bowl blanks. I took it in this week to get a new one - low and behold they finally have come out with a new version. It is supposed to be 4 HP has a new design mechanism to adjust chain tension and it looks a little more beefy. Tried it out and it seems to work quite well so far. Will let you all know how it does.
