Not bad for a budget saw

published

Had this saw for over 3 years, its seen plenty of hard work, its been used for hard and softwoods most of which really should have had a bigger saw used on them than the little 400. Its performed well, still starts easily (regularly servicing makes a big difference), clutch still works well but now the bar has finally given up, actually the bar is quite soft, I suspect a lot of the complaints about dulling chains are due more to bar wear than anything else, it does tend to bananana out and dull the chain, even after bar servicing it does not take long to flog out again. I will replace the bar and see it last another 3 years hard graft.

Purchased in January 2018 at Bunnings Warehouse.

Heap of scrap

published

My shoulder was sore for a week trying to start this heap of junk. Went good for 6 months then nothing but trouble. Stay away from this heap of scrap. It is not even good for scrap metal.

Purchased for $250.00.

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.

Try something else

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 .

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!
