If you wish to have equipment that can help you with your light to medium cutting jobs then the McCulloch MCC4516FK is the right one for you. It is capable of cutting logs with a maximum of 18 inches in diameter without any problems.

This chainsaw is also very safe to use considering that it contains a low kickback chain and a built-in chain brake. Aside from being safe, it is also very handy with its hand guard and light weight design. You can also rely on the oil level window to ensure that your oil levels are within normal range.


In terms of performance, the McCulloch MCC4516FK is powerful for an 18-inches gas saw. It can cut different kinds of logs as wide as 18-inches without any trouble. Aside from that it is also very easy to use.

This chainsaw is very easy to manipulate. You can also easily make the adjustments of the chains all by yourself without any waste of time. This saw is easy to handle especially that it is lightweight and the package comes with a case. Other than that, this saw is very easy on the pocket.


The McCulloch MCC4516FK got some issues on its port holes which is where most of the oil leak bypasses. It is found to be messy and ineffective. There is also difficulty in checking the oil levels since it is barely visible. The cord also needs to be tightened to prevent any loose contact from the outlet or extension wire.

It was also observed that after a few cutting jobs, the chain easily gets dull making the cutting job so poor then. Aside from that, the saw heats up so easily resulting to fire and damage of equipment. It is also found to be very noisy which requires the user to have an ear protection while performing the job.
