Was Terrible Now OK


I think it depends on who assembles your saw at the factory. Mine would start, run for 30 second and then stop. Found cylinder barrel loose, bolts hand tight. The plastic elbow for crankcase vacuum to carby had melted. I made a new elbow and fitted a new vacuum hose to carby. The pipe I used had thicker walls as the original looked as though it could close up under vacuum. Replaced the fuel line to the tank. It now runs well.

8 years and still going strong


i've had my sx 62 for 8 years now and its still going strong its been used and abused all that time and won't die its been run over dropped out of trees had trees dropped on it and looks like a piece of crap and leaks bar oil but its still going i;ve replaced the clutch, pull start and chain brake over the years which amounts to about $60 which can be expected for the amount of work it has done for the price i payed i think it is pretty good value for money

sx62 calamity of a piece of crap.. old one great.. new one dogs vomit


I've had buamrs for years and years two sx62 old ones and a sx66 which was my favourite .. This year I bought a new one and now it's going back to the only company I could buy it through as it didn't last two weeks of cutting light branches.. Funny enough when talking to the parts guy in Penrith nsw he said oh we never have any problems with this saw.. I said that's rubbish as parts wear out even on the better older saws which I've replaced over the time.. This new saw is going back and I won't be buying another one ever.. plus I paid heaps more for it than I should of.. Geoff is right they have gone for profit over product and in time they won't have either of any.. Good one Baumr ag pro.. Way to destroy a business..

cheap saw


first saw sx62 I purchase the best cut a lot of hard wood jarrah(10tons a year) so brought second sx62 saw was rubbish now use as spare parts for first saw also brought a sx72 even more disappointing given I cut a lot of wood the first saw performance carried the other two saws . I say I am in front overall due to the fact the total purchase price of the three saws is about half of a good quality saw, neverless I have a old good quality saw as back up when I go bush

Great useful saw


Have a 72 now discontinued- near 10 years now, cuts white gum - very dense/ hard wood every year..approx 7- 10 tonne every year uses a bit more fuel, bit heavier but still starts every 3rd pull.. after market chain.. did send it back 2 months in & they rebuilt the engine & sent extra bar & chains ... love it

Perfect for Me


Had mine for 2 months now and it's been great. I use mine at least 2-3 times a week and it starts easily every time. I have to sharpen the chain more than I thought I would but I have been advised by an expert that when I replace the chain I spend a few extra dollars and get a quality chain and I won't have to sharpen as often. I clean it after every use, make sure its always got chain oil. Cheap to buy and so far reliable, absolutely love it.

Has been reliable for me.


I bought mine five years ago off EBay, about $120.00. It works fine. Best to get a quality chain as that is where the maintenance is with Baumr chain, stretches, requires frequent sharpening and the best edge is not as good as that of good chain.
But, it goes well. I change the fuel first up if the saw sits for 6 months and it fires by third pull.
I also gave a Baumr post digger. It is more finicky to start, it may be the carby design. tomorrow's task is to get it running.

Cheap for a reason


Used twice and thought I was onto a winner. Was only sitting in the shed for 3 weeks before the next use and won't fire, tried new fuel, checked the spark plug and all the basics still nothing. Steer clear unless you like fixing your gear all the time....not impressed.

Follow up . . . replaced the coil pack - bang it started. Coil pack failure after two uses. Hopeless.

Overheating issue and running lean


Have a Baum SX62 and have had my moneys worth from it. Recently became hard to start. Pulled it apart and the piston was scored from overheating. Found that the rubber pipe connected to the crank case was apparently blocked. When we pulled off the rubber hose we found the black plastic fitting to the crank was still solid plastic and had never been drilled out. I am told this provides the pulse for the carburetor when the saw is under load. We believe this may have made the saw run lean and overheat. If you are having trouble starting and tuning your saw, check the plug in the crank case. (You get to the plug by removing the carburetor).

Great saw for the price, excellent for a standby second saw if your main one fails.

bad saw bad company in edisons


Bought brand new, arrived on time etc but spent three days trying to start it. Followed instructions to the letter and was advised that Edisons would send me the tuning instructions. I advised them I wanted a refund but was advised they needed it to be sent back to them and if faulty would repair or replace however if just out of tune would charge me $95 for the tune up. Are you kidding it should start straight out of the box. I went and bought a ryobi from Bunnings which started third pull out of the box. Don't go near Edisons company or Baumr

good for money if cutting softwood


have 2 of these ... good points .. starts easily, well priced, once tuned runs well. bad points... chain brake breaks down quite quickly, chain, blunts out quickly, constant chain adjustment, heavy on fuel, very heavy on oil, doesn’t maintain power when cutting. opinion.. buy a stihl or husqvarna the cheap price is not worth it..
