Jonsered CS 2252 is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tickled Red! I spent over six months researching chainsaws to replace an old unreliable saw. The cs2252 is impressive. The carb control and anti-vib features are by far superior to my previous saw. I am on my fourth tank of fuel and it is starting to show its power. The weight is very balanced and handling is very natural. I get excited every time it fires to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I'm on my fifth tank of fuel and this saw is still getting stronger. It is so smooth in the cut, even my friend with numerous Stihls made lots of compliments! He was hesitant to give it back. Great handling for limbing and even bucking the smaller trees that I have to work with. No issues with starting and running. The Auto Tune is really the way to go. The motor is always in tune and it really sings. I'm more than pleased!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from J-reds R Gr8 I didn't want to give up my CS 2152 ! Could Jonsered improve on such a nice handling saw? My first impression of the CS 2252 is that Jonsered has pushed the sweet spot for 50cc saws even higher!! I left Stihl behind a long time ago for Jonsered black and red and it appears CS 2252 continues a fine tradition of good saws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from most well tuned saw I have used after running through the rainbow of chainsaw, a found the 2252 to be the best saw i have handled. with chainsaw carving the 2252 saw is a bit more robust than the 346xp it replaced, with none of the hiccups and snags with power band,,the 2252 has a flawless power band when carving pine. the best blocking saw on the market, rivaling its big 2253 bother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME SAW I bought this saw about 6 months ago to replace my blowen up Dolmar 5105. I did alot of reasearch before buying this saw and IMO it was a great choice. I own other brands of saws including a Husqvarna 562xp, and Stihl ms460. For a small saw this thing realy cuts, it starts easy and runs great. My only complaint is the cheap Total bar and chain that came on the saw that I upgraded rite away to a 18" carlton speed tip. Like the Husqvarna 550xp this saw has electronic fuel management, no more adjusting the carb it takes care of it for you. Over all great saw, nice features great power to weight and easy to service.
