    plastic handle has broke twice in two weeks

    published

    Been a Stihl user for 20 years in business, dealer talked me into buying 488 Shindaiwa at a discount. Cheap plastic handle can't hold up to the vibrations the saw makes when using it in the cold. Handle broke twice in two weeks and cost $364 to replace each time.

    488

    Looking for a first chainsaw now that we are landholders, seeking recommendations I think for Shindaiwas - what model would be best suited for private use, cutting primarily olive and eucalyptus to keep the home fires burning. 488 or something bigger or smaller?
    Thanks

    Keeping in mind some eucalyptus can grow to 200 ft tall. A 488 would be a great choice for small to medium work. Anything up to about 200mm should not be a problem.

    Simple internet search, try E Replacemt parts, Jacks small engines, etc. Very easy to identify part numbers and order that have shipped parts to Australia for me, cheaper then buying from local reseller.
