    Did the job well.

    I purchased the Makita DCS34/40, chainsaw from Bunnings to clear a few trees from my back yard, and I'm pleased to say that I am very pleased with the results. It made light work of what otherwise would have left me with a very sore shoulder and wrists.. it's a great little workhorse.

    Great chainsaw. This is the first chainsaw I have bought, after researching feedback. Have been using it very frequently over the last week and it has not missed a beat.
    Reliable, value for money, light, easy start

    Excellent

    published

    This is an awesome saw. Made in Germany by Dolmar. It is light,Powerful, easy starting and Good value for money. It has great design features, like the fuel tank always runs out before the bar oil tank.
    I have owned this saw for eight years.
    Easy starting. Light weight
    Can be prone to the bar oil leaking during storage. I just empty the tank before storage.
    I ran too much two stroke oil in the fuel and the fine guaze spark arrestor got blocked up resulting in power loss. Easy to rectify.

    can the quantity of oil, lubricating the chain, be adjusted on the Makita DCS 34?

    2 answers

    Just use enough to ensure that its sufficiently lubricated
    And not splashing.

    I am aware of that, and that was not the question. The question was can the volume be adjusted, not how much the amount should be. Thanks anyway.

    how do you adjust chain? Old school way?

    2 answers

    There's a screw just next to the chain
    You need an extra long screwdriver to adjust it
    If you take the cover off you will see it
    Hopefully this will help you.

    Just in the normal way. The chain tensioner is located on the inside of the bar near the comb

    It is a flat head screw and can be adjusted with the provided tool.

    loosen off the two nuts that hold the side cover and bar in place slightly, before winding the screw clockwise to tighten the chain.

    Check the chain tension in the middle of the bar. and re-tighten the nuts when you are happy with the tension.
