Great for heavy yard work
After spending a full weekend trying to start a bunnings purchased chainsaw and then it seized on the second cut, I searched for something that was more robust with a long bar and wouldn't send me broke. My research led me to the McCulloch range - they are certainly not the product of old but are somewhere in the middle from a quality and performance point of view. Initially I wanted the CS370 but found an old stock CS400 on a hardware store shelf that I got for the same price as a 370. It started first time following start procedure and using ...correct fuel/oil mix which I think is crucial with these small 2 stroke motors. The first day of use it ran rough, stalling a couple of times - I didn't run it too hard, second day of use it ran flawlessly so I assume it was just a running in process in the early use. It cuts well, very well, plenty of power for my use, I can't fault it so far. And I can confirm it is essentially a rebranded Husqvarna, many parts under the covers are stamped with the husky branding.
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 .
Remember your fuel ratios,
40 liters of fuel to 1 liter of oil.
5 liters to 125 ml

mcculloch cs400t chainsaw quick review
hi. got one of these to cut down a conifer that had split and was leaning on guttering of house. lets just say that it fires up extremely easily every time and works exceptionally well. i couldnt decide what saw to get but i ended up with this one due to it being a returned item that had been used once and had a bad chain. the store (bunnings warehouse) checked it over and included a new chain with it so there was not a problem. ended up getting it for nearly half price so it represents excellent value. i think i would have paid full reta...il anyway without a problem as it is made in the usa not china like others and is actually a husqvarna saw with mcculloch written on it. highly recommended saw. good quality and not made in china like others are.
