What a rubbish 12" Aldi Chain saw
I bought the 12" garden liner chainsaw about a year ago and used it once to cut a small size tree. After a year I needed to use it again and the fuel supply line had cracks and holes and started leaking. The plastic fuel line is clearly not fit for the purpose. What a rubbish product !
Aldi 12" saw.
Bought Aldi garden line chain saw 12" have had 3 years I've cut Cyprus trees 40' up in cherry picker all day long you need a dependable saw doing that type of work. Take it with me when I camp I have a stil saw bought Aldi one for back up works just as hard as stil. I find if you run 50 to 1 petrol oil no probs. Also you've got to tune them properly they don't come that well tuned cheers.
Works well so far
Same experience as the last reviewer. Once I started it the first time (the instructions are pretty bad) I have used it to cut 2 big gum trees and it has not missed a beat. I empty the chain oil after each use just in case. I have started it first time (after the initial go) every time and after running out of fuel also. Big green gum trees (50cm diameter) are now piles of firewood. Chain brake feels a tad cluncky but seems to work. Chain oil might be set wrong or a bit blocked too but I will set it again next time. Chain still sharp aft...er 4 hours work on green wood so happy with that. Chain tensioner is weird but nor problem yet. Fuel and Oil caps seem flimsy. Blew smoke for first quarter of a tank but runs well except revs hard when its about to run out of gas (normal). Use the brake please people...

great little chainsaw
I have had large commercial size chainsaws all my life and use them regularly on the farm, but bought the Aldi for pruning which it is just perfect for. If you want a chainsaw to cut down trees then you don't buy this one. Fit for purpose is what it is all about and the Gardenline chainsaw is just that.
Worked a few times but less that 4 weeks it will not run. Is was always a totally annoying to start, but finally it runs for 3 seconds and cuts out.
Absolute rubbish. I will return for refund or just throw away this is not worth the time or effort.
Got a refund from Aldi.
PS: They don't like it if you return it with fuel, they don't like you tipping the fuel in carpark either ;)
