cheap and does the job
the chain lube is way too much from factory but you can just adjust the screw so less comes out. really powerful and in my experience starts within 3 pulls
Purchased in March 2020 for A$149.00.
Gutsy unit .....so far so good
I bought the 2 stroke 53cc Gardenline in March for $150. The unit has started well and coped easily with aged hardwood (yellow gum, red box and red gum) logs of up to 25cm diameter to date.
Found replacement chains at Bunnings for ~$35, though Ebay has the right spec @ 1/5 that price. As noted by other users 20 minutes continuous use will see the saw get quite warm and is probably the point to check your chain bar oil. It's been pretty thirsty on that front.
Re-tensioning the chain has been straightforward.
Don't bother priming 10 x as per s...
Purchased in March 2019 at Aldi Carnegie for A$150.00.
Wow - how dodgy
fuel priming problem - The priming pump seems to pressurise the fuel tank no problem but absolutely no fuel to the carby. And the chain lube leaks oil everywhere! Cant get a service shop to even look at it.
Useless product, and forget any warranty claim!
Purchased back in April 18 knowing I'd need a new chainsaw for a property I purchased, but wouldn't go into until July 2018
Went to use it first time. Checked chain tension...OK. Ran 5 mins...chain came off.
Became a regular occurrence.
Then had misfortune to strike a nail in a tree. Blunted chain, lost a tooth.
Can't get replacements off shelf. Had to get a mower shop to custom me up a chain. $50.
The chain coming off the bar became worse. In the end, was seriously dangerous.
Checked the gear on the machine body. Had some sort o...

- Verified purchase
I bought this for my son to help his dad cut firewood, firstly we put a better quality chain on it ($30) and basically away they went. They have cut load after load after load of red gum wood and it has been extremely reliable. It needs to be cleaned thoroughly between uses as the filter is very thin and he did manage to break the chain tensioner, I rang the warranty people (5 year warranty) and insisted we needed to pay for the part due to the amount of work the saw had done in a very short time but the man said "no they stand by their warrant...y" and the replacement part was sent in a week. They are still cutting wood and this saw is still running as well as the day we bought it.....best $149 I have ever spent.....thank you Aldi....A+ for product and service.

Chain will not tighten
Started my chainsaw up on Saturday no problem, eventually chain loosened, read the instructions how to tighten, unlocked it but the dial won't turn to tighten or to loosen, cane home very disappointed. Anyone any ideas ??? Struggled for ages trying to tighten it. Will have to buy firewood now. Wife not impress.
A great Chainsaw
Although I have only have had my ALDI Gardenline 53 cc Chainsaw for a few weeks I have found it to be a great piece of equipment, but must admit the spark plug connection is badly designed, while checking the spark plug gap the clip came off with the rubber boot, could be the problem why some don't start, a new clip fixed the problem.
Aldi Gardenline 53cc Chainsaw
I bought this chainsaw for $A149. I tried unsuccessfully to start it for 4 days. I even changed the sparkplug. I also tried Start ya aerosol spray.The Manual contradicts itself on the starting procedure. The Manual does not provide information on options to replace the Chinese sparkplug, After 4 days, I returned it to Aldi and received a full refund. With my refund, I bought a Stihl Mini Boss MS 170 chainsaw which does start.
Questions & Answers
Have a 4 stroke model purchased May last year. It won't run and seems to starved of fuel. Primer button only draws air. It leaks petrol when vertical with handle down. Broken Capillary? Has done about 10 hours work. Next step? Location is near Melbourne metro area.
What size bar does this chainsaw have.
How do i tighten the chain
Use the adjustment wheel on the side where the bar and chain are. It's the big round blob hanging off the side with gradations around its edge. You first loosen it by sliding the central arm thingy out with your thumb. This makes an extended lever that acts as a built-in spanner, and you can rotate the arm counter-clockwise to loosen the chain bar enough to allow it to move - but not too much or the bar will come off. Then click the outer rim of the wheel around clockwise (it's on a ratchet, so it only turns clockwise unless you pull the little ratchet device out of the way). Turning the wheel clockwise will tighten the chain. Don't overdo it. You want a bit of slack in the chain. Once you have it adjusted right, tighten the built-in spanner arm again by rotating it clockwise, nice and tight, then slide the arm back into place.
