Just wondering if the teen series of JD chainsaws are any good? Esp the 15,17,18,19's. I know Remington made them but thats all i know about them. Just wondering about the power and if they give good service.

Wow, if that's the Deere branded line of saws I remember, they're getting really old now. I bought one new about 40 years ago. I used it for really light stuff and got along with it OK, but as I recall it didn't start very easy. I didn't have it very long. They didn't have much of a reputation. It sure didn't match up to the Husqvarna I have now or to today's Stihls.

The Remingtons saws were dogs. The Echos were reliable but did not have a great power-to-weight ratio.

Deere's last chainsaws are excellent professional grade saws. Better then anything Stihl or Husqvarna makes in that size range (56 cc). They were made by EFCO of Italy. A popular professional saw in Europe.

Those numbers were Remington saws. Biggest problem was with fuel boiling when saw was set down after use. Resulted in flooding of engine and hard to start second time. Loosen the fuel cap everytime you set it down. Remember to tighten before use.

Fuel tank was part of crankcase and heat from engine caused fuel boiling.

Dad bought a new JD 17 back in the early 70s that was for the most part a decent saw but a little small, so later on in the 70s he bought a JD 50V that was a good saw, Dad was a little leary of this saw because it had a "Japan built" engine but it was a tough saw. I picked up a like new JD 35EV saw at a garage sale for $75 in 1990 and Dad liked that one best of all of them (was light and easy to handle). I still have that saw for the occasional need. I use a Stanley model 499 for my wood (pellet bag) cutting needs (Very quiet and dependable).
