    I took in a 250 with easy start to work on. First easy start I have ever got to try out first hand. I was impressed with the easy start part and showed my 70+ dad. Good idea for older folks, people with bad shoulders, hands etc IMO.

    I even tried it just doing a couple 3 short pulls a few inches at a time and it wound it up and started that way too. I think a 3 year old could start those easy start saws IMO

    I would be worried that a kid would try to start the thing. Wouldn't want to be surprised by a 6 year old's rendition of the "Chainsaw Massacre."
    The reality is that most of the people who buy these saws would physically have a hard time controlling it in a "kickback" or "bar pinch" situation.

    If one was that worried pull the plug wire off. Then with my memory now days I would wonder why the darn thing wouldnt start next time.

    We have several like that and like our other saws, when not cutting the chain brake is engaged. My wife loves ours and is quite comfortable with them. I had to quit using them, but they allowed me to use chain saws longer than I would have otherwise. I have no more safety concerns with them than any saw.
