I tryed to break it
I've tryed to destroy mine added s longer bar n chain used it on only large iron bark logs (1m+ round) n it's never missed a beat. Starts easy. Only complaint is it vibarates like a mofo n is thirsty af but what do u expect for 100 bucks.. the stihl saw has required more maintenance but I guess it is older
Starts everytime... good little chainsaw for under $100
Lots of negative reviews on here, but can't say I share their experiences. I purchased this product almost two years ago and had never really had a problem with it...and I've used it quite a bit and on some rather large fallen limbs and even trunks of trees.
Granted, the first time I started it, it looks like 20-30 goes, but that's exactly what it said in manual, so I was expecting it. Otherwise, I always used the 20:1 petrol/oil ratio mix for fuel and always made sure there was plenty of bar oil before cutting.
Also, I learnt how to keep...the chain sharp, and after accidentally bending one of the teeth, went and bought a new chain, but that was an easy process with a $20 purchase from the local Bunnings. I'd recommend this to homeowners as a handy tool around the house, that, if you look after it and follow the manual of instructions, should work fine.
Yet To Let Me Down
I only bought this saw less than 2 weeks ago out of desperation when the Mchulloch saw I have failed me for the last time during the East Coast storms. A huge eucalyptus had come down accross 2 neighbouring properties and I took it on for firewood. The Mculloch would run ok for one tank of gas then refuse to start hot and even when I got it going again it would just stop after 5 min and refuse to start.
So, I grabbed this saw from Aldi for $169 despite swearing I would never buy Gardenline petrol tools again after once having their leaf blow...er that would never start. I unpacked the saw, filled it with correct 2 stroke mix and chain oil but could not understand the manuals starting instructions. They seemed to be describing a different saw. So I just pulled the choke out, pumped the primer bulb a few times and it fired on the 3rd pull. I pushed the choke in and it started on the next pull. It seemed a little reluctant at first but after half a tank it was on fire and just ripped disks off the eucalyptus trunk which was 600 diameter at its base so I've been working it hard. I have put at least 12 tanks of fuel through this saw now and have cut up a huge amount of firewood from storm felled eucalyptus. The only time it stops is when I turn it off or it runs out of fuel.

Questions & Answers
How do I remove the chain drive sprocket wheel to access and seal the panel screwed onto side of oil tank to stop the chain oil leaking out?
Hi where can I buy the chains to suit this model can’t seem to find them anywhere. What is the part number please
How to change the chainsaw? How to tighten the chain ? Any user manual for this chainsaw ?
When we tried our with no success initially, I noticed that the on symbol (I) was directly under the word STOP if you look closely. We put the switch the opposite way to which we had it and it started. The trouble is can’t remember which way we had the switch first. We’ll find out today. Also if you keep pressing the fuel bubble you may flood it, so let it rest a while before trying again.
