No need to swap out chain in the field yet. This thing cuts through wood like butter. My two other new chain saws do the same thing. I think it too was broken or the chain was dull. Only time will tell the whole story for the saw.

Husqvarna 965030298 Final Thoughts
"Its a great deal!"
3 hours later I follow the restart instructions. Never got tired pulling that dang starter cord! Also unwieldy when trying to thin out scrub oak. I simply unlocked it and it continued cutting. Com and happy pleased with the purchase.
