Terrible..waste of money...get a Husqvarna for same price..

published

Absolute crap...does not run for more than 20 min. It over heats.chainsaw is 6 months old. Had less than 2 hours use, then wouldn't start. Paid $110 for a useless service.. starts, if you can get it to, then stops.
Need to leave it for 1 hour before attempting again...
Lucky this one is not mine. I borrowed it.
I had one previously. Different model same issue... all rubbish in my opinion.. not even suitable for kindling..

Purchased in March 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $400.00.

good,tough little unit and cheap.

published

purchased this little chainsaw from Bunnings two years ago and have given it a good work out on some tough WA timber. Easy to start and easy to use and does the small jobs its intended for. Quality motor from Husqvarna that is a tad under powered but if you want more power buy a bigger one. Keep a spare chain ready as hard work dull it very quickly and its easy to put a new one on and than sharpen the old one at leasure.

Easy to start, but chain comes off frequently, despite careful tensioning. Difficult to work on. Have owned a few different chainsaws, this one is not recommended. Spend more time fixing it than using it. Refitting the chain is awkward and the tightening mechanism is problematic.
The 12inch Ozito is much better.

Great value for money

Can't fault this saw for the price, I did a few mods and this thing cracks, sure it's not the best saw on the market but with a sharp chain and maintained bar it's perfect for the homeowner.
Made by husquarna, and not Chinese .
Remember your fuel ratios,
40 liters of fuel to 1 liter of oil.
5 liters to 125 ml


Good saw

Bought the cs400t as I had bought a McCullouch before and enjoyed its realibilty and power. Cuts well but didn't enjoy the fact I had to replace the clutch within the first 30 hours of use, didn't want to mess around at a shop and being a mechanic and all replaced it myself, i found it a very easy unit to work on so it would be suitable for the DIY person for when the warranty period expires to keep on.

Great little unit! We live in Airlie beach North Queensland and there isn't a great deal of places of which hire out chainsaws etc, so basically had the choice of paying $120 for a days use of a stihl or purchasing the little black beast for $240, therefore was pretty happy to get more then 2 uses out of it!
It hasn't got the most grunt as tends to bog in a bit with the more dense and softer Timber so wouldn't be incline to buying one if it were my livelyhood, though it does everything that I need it to do and seeing as am only using it perhaps 2 per month it's excellent!

Questions & Answers

Gordon

Gordonasked

Bought a cs 400t took first one back as it wouldn’t stop running when idling or it just cut out after adjusting screw T. Bought a replacement. This one is cutting out all the time and now when eventually it starts, I press for full running after 30 - 60 secounds and it just stops. Only used it for an hour as anyone else had issues or a solution please.

You MUST start with a full tank of fuel. 25ml per litre (40:1)
Start the saw, let it idle for 20-30 seconds and then start to give her a few bursts of 1/4 to 1/2 throttle, but not full ball. You can get to work, but don't flog the guts out of it for at least 2 mins. You want your engine to warm up somewhat, before ripping into full power band.

See if you can get it hot and go from there. Could be a dodgy spark plug if it keeps dropping out. Keep us updated okay. Cheers.

My Mculloch CS420t leaks gas when stored. Any idea what is causing this?

I found that the oiler leaked from oil residue in the tank. Try storing the saw without fuel and oil. Hope this helps.

I brought the CS400T model having trouble getting it to run without cutting out mixture I have used for petrol 5lt to 100ml of oil is this correct?

20mL oil to 1L petrol is 50:1. So 100mL to 5L is correct for 50:1 oil/petrol mix.
25mL oil to 1L petrol is 40:1. So 125mL to 5L is correct for 40:1 oil/petrol mix.

Put the oil in first then add the fuel.
