Perfect for small jobs

published

By small I mean 200 mm branches or less. I have a 80Ha property and this is my preferred saw. good fuel efficiency and ligh6t weight. once you are cutting lager than 200 mm thick wood a bigger saw will be faster

Purchased in at pawn shop for $39.

Light Utility Saw

published

I use this chainsaw as a backup when my circular saws are inadequate, such as when I need to cut pine posts or logs. Have never regretted buying it. Main support saw for carpentry work and main saw for handymans chores.

Purchased in for $179.

A great cheap but reliable saw

published

I had an olive tree that needed removal. After getting tired using a bow saw decided that I needed to expedite the process without spending too much. Decided on the Homelite 12inch product under $100. Perhaps a bit small for the size of the job but it certainly did the trick. The only issue was that the chain did go blunt relatively quickly but I don't thing this was a fault of the product. It was easy to start and had no issue with it whilst it was working. Never used a chainsaw before so it was a bit daunting Intially but got used to it very quickly. I was a bit concerned about kickback. Did not happen once. Chain replacement is a relatively easy process.

A great cheap saw

published

Cheap does not have to be junk, plenty of power and light weight. Goes Good, starts easy but more suited to smaller jobs with its 12 inch bar, but take your time with it and anything is possible.great for $99

Great chainsaw for the price.

published

Purchased this small chainsaw to tackle small jobs such as cutting up fire wood and pruning small trees. Great little machine, starts easily and lightweight, so you can really throw it around. 12" blade and plenty of power for its size. Would not suit large jobs, it is more suited to the small stuff.

It doesn't have to be full so just add what you think. I try to empty the oil after use as it gradually leaks otherwise.
