Will not run at all
Bought a pole saw 10 years ago and it still runs starts pretty much first time every time.
Bought a pole saw trimmer whippersnipper etc a couple of years later exact same treatment storage etc stopped working after a couple of years and is a rust bucket.old one has done at least 20 times the work.just much better quality and more user friendly.no rust
Quality is very poor now.
One of my best purchases
I needed to cut up 60 big pine trees, and then I wouldn't need the saw again. I was reluctant to spend $700+ on a Stihl or Husky, and had read some OK reviews about the Baumr. At first, it was terrible. The factory chain stretched constantly and got blunt so quickly. I read somewhere that I should put an Oregon chain on. What an amazing difference. It has ripped through the 60 trees and has paid itself off five times over. It hasn't skipped a beat in three years - starts the third pull every time.
Purchased in January 2017 at eBay for $169.00.
You get what you pay for
I paid $70 delivered for this saw on eBay back in Christmas 2018. A super special. My expectations were low.
Couldn’t get it to start at first, but once I replaced the spark plug with a decent brand, it started right up and cut OK for a few months. I might have used it 3 times in around 4 weeks?
Then I broke the starter rope. Pulled it apart and fixed it. Worked ok since, but the ratcheting starter mechanism feels very fragile. The chains are average, so I don’t bother sharpening them. I just buy new chains in bulk - you can buy them f...or like $5 each delivered from China. It’s hard to start when cold, and leaks bar oil and fuel everywhere when stored. It regularly stalls when in use. But it works, and for $70 delivered, you can’t complain.

Terrible chainsaw, terrible customer service!
Don’t bother! Bought chainsaw a couple of years ago. Had hardware store technician put it together. Worked for about 5 cuts, then started emitting smoke and leaking petrol. Contacted Baumer several times and they never got back to me. Terrible chainsaw that never worked properly and horrendous customer service. Am happy to manage a joint claim against these degenerates if enough people get back to me with similar experiences.

Great Wall of chainsaws
Bought one of these years ago, initially thought it was great value for money. Plenty of power and cut ok for a cheap machine.
Put it away for a couple of years and try to use it, no go. On investigation, clean plug, air filter, heaps of shit has bypassed the air filter and carby inlet is full of wood dust. Didn't bother going any further as it will not start, can assume now lacking compression?
Husqvarna 55, fresh fuel added and started easily as you would expect.
When China learn to go the extra bit with quality, they will keep up with the big names, too many shortcuts in my opinion. Want a cheap disposable machine, go for it!
Might pull a few bits off it and throw it in the bin to save someone else the frustration.

Baumr chain saw AG62SX, Not worth a cent
Do not buying one, they are the biggest heap of crap, bran new out off box, used it for just over an hr, never being able to start it again, email Baumr , never responded to my e-mail except two month before warranty expired, then Baumr delayed and delayed and then stated to me sorry no longer covered by warranty.
Purchased at eBay for $250.00.
Light Duty Saw
I have had the SX 62 for just over 12 months , starts easy, chain dulls easy, chain tensioner is no longer functioning and started to fail after about 6 months, chain brake no longer functions, I have cut about 3 tons of wood with it, the saw was always maintained.
It has paid for itself but I am looking for a better known brand saw now.
In my opinion is not the best saw for long term work, it is a disposable saw.

Good Chainsaw Great Vaule For Money
I purchased the chainsaw in August 2019 for a bargain price of $135 delivered. Assembly was very easy. Followed the manual using good quality 2 stroke oil and 95 unleaded fuel and good quality bar and chain oil.
First start was very easy. This saw is no Stihl or Husqvarna but to my suprise it cuts hardwood very easily.
The first time cutting wood I was cutting up firewood. A fallen old stringybark tree. The cuts were approximately 50cm across the trunk to split with a block splitter. The saw had plenty of power and managed it easily.

Yes it has been good
The Ebay chainsaw has had a real workout over about 5 years.
Starting is impressive EASY compared with other online stuff ie petrol whipper snipper from this online shop.
It is still working and needs a new chain often $20 online $60 from Mower Shop!!!!!
Great saws for their price
Found it starts easy,have had mine for 6yrs now,the only fault i have had is the chain tensioner vibrates loose,its an easy fix by putting a small compresion spring on the tensioner bolt,also i found it likes to stretch chains and the bars have a tendency to wear with heavy cutting,but ive probably been harder on it then most,its cut close to 250 mters of commercial wood(redgum,sugar gum,iron bark and old sleepers)plus the 18mtrs a season i use myself.so for the price you carnt go wrong and really if it lasts a season then its little loss and buy another,still dead cheap and worth the cash.
Purchased in January 2014 at Baumer AG for $199.00.
Worth the money - not the experience
How easy is it to start?
Compared with other 'pull start' saws and devices it is 'weird' as I and 2 other people termed it. It is a spring that winds up on the pull then releases..(causes the motor turn fast) And feels somewhat flimsy. But so far starts after no more than 3 pulls. *1 when hot
What sort of trees / branches do you use this chainsaw on?
Have tested it on green gum trees and aged stringy bark. It tends to get bark tangled between the outer case and chain which has to be cleared. No Stihl saw I've owned has ever had this problem-

Awesome saw, value for $$$
I've had a sx62 mk3 for about 3 years now and I have used it a lot and I mean a lot. I regularly saw through hardwoods (redgum ,ironbark, yellow box, mallee) up to 18 inches in diameter. Starts after 3-4 pulls every time. As a guess I have cut up 40 tons of wood with it and it hasn't failed. Keep the chain sharp, don't hold the throttle wide open, set the Carby mixture a bit rich and run it 30:1 oil ratio and it'll last. In a nutshell I've had few Chinese saws and this one takes the cake, in fact I saw them on sale and bought another for the future. I've even had a professional arborist comment on it's impressive performance.
Purchased in October 2016 for $169.00.
Best $199 I've spent
Worked first time, every time.
Locking the extension poles into position can be fiddly, and it's very heavy at 5m (but that's the immutable laws of physics for you).
I was a sceptical purchaser, but this is great value.
Purchased in February 2019 at Catch for $199.00.
Cuts well, plenty of power, reliable.
I bought this cheap saw to mainly cut down palm trees as I didn't want to wreck a good saw. I have been very pleased with it, I really can't fault it so far. It is a very pleasant surprise how well this saw works, it has plenty of power to cut big logs. It starts easily and I have had absolutely no trouble with it whatsoever.
Very dangerous shuld be recalled
Just finished repairing the 2nd one of these.
A reasonable saw for the price but latex rubber used on fuel lines is not petrol proof & actually illegal to use in most of the developed world, including Australia.
Fuel line split and covered the customer with petrol.
Put some proper fuel line on it and all was good but this is a $ 150 repair on this saw ( 2 hours work ).
IMHO a very dangerous defect, potential bush fire starter
Ha ha ha ha..well for a start the people of any place that sells this trash can come and suck my circles for a start..the thing did not come with a catcher..i put it through its paces today and found that after minimum use it showed great wear on already crap parts wondering will it start tomorrow. Now sure i put some good oil and 91 uld and vrooom first pull with little effort..but then i took her up and down the backyard 3 times on lowest setting in pretty already low buffalo it did not like it at all..it started to sound amiss i stopped it ...cleaned it with the deck cleaner and wow a good idea no crap then i checked the blades and no no the flimsiest crap that had chunks and big dent and depression from 3 runs in the back yard.. purchase at your own peril..
Have had a few of these over the years
For the money these saws are great. Ive had 4 over last 12 years or so. Some ive cut more than 5 tonne of fire wood a year with. Obviously they wont go forever...but geez, ive got a lot more than my moneys worth for each one. Love em.
The big stihls are stand out better...BUT, so is the price tag.
Oh.... spare bits for the Baumr have got easier to get over the years ive noticed.
OK for what it costs
Used my SX62 to cut down around 30 large gum trees, dead trees full of ants, gnarly old fire damaged stumps. Each was then cut into smaller pieces for burning. Sharpened the chain twice, once my own fault because I let it run against some rocks. The saw is far from perfect and needs fairly regular adjustment to chain tension, uses heaps of bar oil and can be sometimes temperamental to start, but at the end of the day an equivalent Stihl or Husky would cost at least 5x the price.
I would take the reviews on the sellers site with a grain of s...alt as they appear to be almost all positive. I suspect that the older model (mine is a Mk3) was better built and therefore earned the good reviews, and that they cherry-pick which reviews they publish. However, as long as you're happy to fiddle with the saw a bit then it's definitely good for the price.
Waste of time
Saw has Done hardly any work used on green not dry and the clutch is stuffed found with then the saw tends to cut angled fixed that problem but i own 7 saws ill never buy one of these again, its sluggish in cutting large logs, small wood fine, now the clutch is going on it dont know if ill replace it, also if its been running for a while say half a tank wont start have to wait for a while for it to cool down before trying to restart
Questions & Answers
Sx82 ran well for around 4 days then sudden stop... Still has spark and compression clean fuel. Still looks like new air filter is clean, get an occasional pop when trying to start it. That's about all. Very frustrating to get such little use out of it. Even an $80 homelite cut more wood than this.
I've tried to make contact with the owners to resolve my issues and never get a response. I can only assume it's a shame operation and I'm just writing off my payment but also trying to communicate to as many people as possible to NOT BUY BAUMR EVER!! The cheapest crap you get from Bunnings will work better.
Baumr sx92 brand new saw first start tensioner broke fixed it second start chain getting real tight and. Or oiling the bar! Pulled chain cover off and bar and started oil is coming out I then checked the bar wholes and they are clean not gunked up. It’s not even 3 days old. What would the problem be
