SX82 Baumr AG pro
Mine is not a n e-start model. I bought mine 4 years ago when my old faithful echoe’s coil died and can’t find one. I also own an old homelight 20” which has been a beast to use but has no chain break (yes it is that old) an it died the same time also. Having no money at the time and I’ve been cutting firewood for years as it is the only heating source I have, whilst living on property.
I bought this saw with the intention of still rebuilding my other saws as I have the knowledge and to use the bummer only for a stop gap solution. For the mone...
economical Chainsaw improved but still with faults
I have just purchased my fifth SX82 bummer as Stihl/Husqvana chainsaws in this size are not an economic option for me at about 10x the price in this size saw. The first 3 bummers lasted about 12 months (first one replaced under warranty after 11 months) but the common faults have been fixed in the new model (vibration mounts failed, E-start kept tangling/breaking, screw in cover damaged carby) . Number 4 has been operating without fault for 5 months (an improvement on the old models), so I got number 5 for when number 4 breaks. Faults with t...he newest model include a very week dog that will get bent the first time it is used, and this will allow the exhaust to press against the wood scorching the wood (the exhaust can cause bark to catch fire). The chain adjustment system is a good idea but not assembled correctly - be sure to lubricate the thread and wind it to the extremes to free up the thread while holding the screw in place before assembling it onto the saw, or you may damage the mechanism. E-start in not fitted to the new model and this makes for a much more reliable pull-start. The Truesharp chain is sharp and will cut meat but works best if lightly sharpened with each fill of fuel. A Stihl chains will cut more wood between sharpenings once the original has worn out but takes longer to sharpen. Number 4 saw will be fitted with a 20" bar and given much more work now while number 5 will be a spare and used with original the 24" bar for falling trees. (anyone need a spare 24" bar? I'm getting a collection.)
Worth a go
I have used a few saws over the years (stihls n Mac's) but am not a logger. Used a new SX 82 on a 60' red gum and no real issues. Pro's plenty of go (maybe not total 82cc) still more the enough to drive 24" bar. Easy start the best of any saw I have used outright - decompression valve works well, vibration dampeners work well 10 hours use an arms leg n back not broken, easy idle adjustment, easy clean pull down clean, oil n re-assy in 1.5hours after big weekend of use. Cons, choke lever attachment poor fit, bar nuts wrong style virbrate loose, ...chain is a joke, all different size cutters n raker hieghts, big saw fuel moderate for its size but not amazing.Conclusion if you spend approx $100-150 on simple upgrades - quality chain, chain files, bar nuts, plus face shield ear muffs n gloves, supplied PPE is below par in my mind, you then have a saw for the general land/home owner which will handle that good size log for the fire or tree down in the back paddock well under the brand name $. Time will be the other tell tale n at this time spares are no issue n priced well too.

Questions & Answers
how to use decompressor valve
my sx82 is not getting fuel to the carby in order to start. It will fire on aerostart, so it is not the spark
Hi my problem (among other things) was there was no metal weight filter attached to the of the end fuel line so the cheap rubber fuel line just floated to the top and was just sucking in air. You might try emptying the fuel tank and make sure there is a metal weight attached to the fuel line Other than that, if you're game, pull off the covers and check the other lines are not cracked or disconnected.
Hi Eric i can tell exactly what is wrong check your fly weel you will find the timing has sliped the wood ruff key way in the crank shaft moves which causes the machine to backfirs an will not start no matter what then you undo the bolt holding the flywheel on you will se on the washer it has been moving around you will need luck to repair i can tell you you more likely get the runaround buyer be aware
