Not worth it, even for a cheap chainsaw
I’m being factual.
This thing is complete rubbish. I expected poor build quality because of the price. But this thing is unusable. Fuel leaks everywhere. Oil poors out the cap. Safety doesn’t work properly. It’s now sitting in a box ready for the tip. Buy cheap, but not this brand.
Purchased in January 2020 for A$200.00.
The way the exhaust comes out in front of the saw it puts hot gas straight on to the wood and bark,i had it caught fire on several occasions,which can be dangerous in dry grass ,around the cutting area.
Purchased in September 2018.
Dangerous fire hazard
Saw came into workshop because it would not start.
Tipped the fuel out & replaced it with fresh fuel.
Two pulls on the starter latter & I was standing in a puddle of fuel.
ILLEGAL !!!!!! latex rubber fuel lines had perished and split in multiple places.
How such a saw is allowed to be sold can only be explained by plain paper envelopes full of cash.
Once replace with Tygon lines and tuned properly it ran well but the chain was total rubbish only having been used once & stretched beyond safe use.
Once the medium quality ( & Price ) carlton chain was fitted, the repair bill came to the same as the owner paid for the saw in the first place.
Still cheap for a saw of this size . ...
Good mill saw
We are a Husky house when it comes to our chainsaws, but needed a big unit to mill some big logs on the property. This a great saw for an Alaskan Mill or similar. Does the job and didn't cost much. The only downside is the initial setup and tweaking that is required to get it running along with the regular maintenance. Buy it for what it is and not instead of a name brand. There is a big difference.
I Have 3 Baumr -AG chainsaws a sx62(62cc) a sx82 (82cc) and sx92 (92cc). The 62 is a great saw and doesn't have any issues the 82 had a sticking problem with the throttle so I replaced the carby and the throttle linkage cost $40 all good for now. The 92 weighs 4kg more than the 82 but has only 10cc more and the chain bar is 25 inches not 24 inches as advertised and I had to replaced the oil pump but that has been going great since then. I had these saws for 3 years now and found that you have to run these saws on at least 95 octane fuel and m...ix the 2 stroke fuel at 40:1. I also found that the saws run rich when new so you have to tune them to your conditions. I cannot justify buying a Stihl or a Husqvarna and paying at least $1500 for the privilege when I have payed only $700 for 3 chainsaws which run great and only need minor maintenance.
Lot's of power, lot's of maintenance & good value for money
Easy to start out of the box and cut 4-5m3 of wood with it. After the last m3 I cut the engine felt as though it had seized, fortunately it was hydro-locked. Took the crankcase off after inspecting the spark plug (which was covered in carbon) and had to use lots of elbow grease to remove the carbon build-up). Purchased a new spark plug and sharpened the chain and the machine was back to spitting chips out again. I will say though that the carburetor did require adjustment and if I could have my time again I would also ensure using synthetic 2-s...troke oil and high quality bar oil. The air filter is of very poor quality and requires constant cleaning, this normally would not be a problem except the entire top cover has to be removed and this includes the top bar (it is annoyingly inconvenient). I ended up using my dremel to cut out a back panel to easily clean the filter. If you have had some mechanical knowledge and don't mind some extra maintenance then this saw will tick most of your boxes, with a sharp chain it has some serious power and is a great alternative to a Husky or Stihl. Longevity will be something that only time will tell.
Absolute beast of a chainsaw for the price.
Was looking around on eBay for chainsaws, reading reviews and watching YouTube videos of how these saws performed I went ahead and bought 1. Put the saw together once I got it, mix of 24:1 fuel into the tank, bar oil, 2 pulls with the choke out and it fired, choke pushed in and fired first pull. What can I saw absolute amazing chainsaw! I was planning to save up and buy a second hand Stihl (even though there over $500 for something with a decent bar size) but $300 worth every cent, very happy with the Baumr SX-92 92cc 24" bar. Have cut up a fai...r bit of big diameter wood. I did find though that it was like it wasn't reving very high. Wound in the H screw with the throttle held flat on and the revs came up to desirable rev range. Highly recommend this chainsaw
great saw for the money
Can agree with every thing Scott said in his review although I didn't have the plug problem.
I've put 5 tanks of fuel through my saw so far and apart from some minor tuning issues and a bit of premature wear on the bar I think its a great saw. Plenty of grunt when tuned right. Its definatly a bit on the heavy side but will be good exercise...lol
I wanted a big saw but couldn't justify around $2000 for an 066 sthill as I only cut around 10m2 of firewood a year.
I've cut logs that were around 2-3 foot through and it handled them fine.
Baumr-ag sx92cc big saw for little money
Only had it a little while, in the first half tank had to adjust high and low idle screws and replace spark plug with NGK plug. Motor was 4 stoking (like running on 1/2 a cylinder)and fouled the plug. Set way to rich at factory, anyway 1/4 of a turn in on the high screw and now running great. Other than that its cutting like a demon and has heaps of torque. Will update when its a bit older but for now first impressions are good. One bad point is to clean the air filter you have to stuff around a bit getting the top cover out the way because the...spark plug lead stops it from coming off. Only giving it 3 stars because of the cleaning filter problem and original bad carburetor setting, if i wasn't experienced with saw motor tuning and that happened on the first half a tank i would of had to send it back or find a shop and pay for them to look at it, so for the average joe it would be a pain.
Questions & Answers
Saw is new but chain will not self oil. Any suggestions please
If it is less than 12 months old send it back for an in warranty repair or refund.
All chain saws sold new in Australia must come with warranty unless bought from a genuine auction.
Under the saw should be an oil adjuster screw and it should have arrows & +/- on it.
There is a filter in the oil tank that can clog.
Remove the chain & bar then start the saw
You should see oil coming out the slot in the top of the bar mounting when the saw is running.
If you have a compressor then block off the oil filler with your fingers then slip an air duster into the oil tank and apply some pressure, you should see oil emerging from the lube point on the bar mounting .
The rubber pick up tubes are prone to going soft and collapsing cutting off the oil supply .
The pump itself is also prone to failure but it is fairly simple job to replace it .
Tedious cause everything has to come off to get at it but no special tools required
