Found 28th Jul 2013
Was looking for a chainsaw for firewood preparation and "saw" this deal from Asda. Looks like a genuine deal. Tesco direct have it for £190, seems to be £165 lowest price elsewhere.

Dont ever ever ever use one of these without chainsaw protection, not for the diy'er . Chains are designed to bury rapidly into wood, even faster into flesh! If the jobs to small to wear chainsaw protection " use a bowsaw" Thats off my chest, have a lovely sunday.

Maybe the camera angle, but it looks a very badly balanced saw, leading to fatigue if you are intending using it for any length of time, not enough info on the chain or guide bar. A useful thing to have if you have a lot of trees handy, price of petrol nowadays i have invested in an electric, and a few rolls of insulation tape, far easier and lighter to use, just have to remember theres a cable on it!

I am looking at it on my ipad and it looks way, way too small in the picture. You'd never cut a tree down with that!

This plus a deal on Evil Dead Blu Ray

You do realise that the pictures you see on the internet are not actual size don't you?

Thank god Diggerdawson was here to point out that a chain saw can be dangerous, Im going to get one and put it away for the zombie apocalypse.Heat added.

They should not be allowed to sell these to the general public - they are too dangerous for the masses (look up kickback!) who in 99% of cases will not buy Kevlar trousers, gloves or even a mask. Stereotypical yes - but also correct.

He has a serious point and conveys it well. All you do is seem to prattle on about a fictional non-event, a perfect example of the type of person that should not be allowed to use a chainsaw!

They really ought to make all protective clothing VAT exempt, a few more people might buy it then.

having owned mac for 14 years they are decent. a novice should not be cutting down trees, these are fine for cutting up firewood. use common sense and respect the saw and you`ll be fine. the secretto safe chainsaw use is keeping the chain sharp

Is it ALL I do, is it? In fact to the best of your knowledge I did it once, here, to make a joke.Im not sure that that should disqualify me from chainsaw ownership.
To clarify, I was trying to point out in as light hearted a way as possible that I believe that people can be left to deicide for themselves weather or not to buy a chainsaw , and accept the liabilitys and responsibilitys of ownership.
I think people will realise that a chainsaw is Dangerous without some self appointed guardian of health and safety pointing out what would be blindingly obvious the even the most casual of observers.
Thats just what I think sorry if it offends you.

Evidently you also rant. My point is - Chainsaws are just as dangerous as a gun or vehicle in the wrong hands. The problem is that most people DO NOT realise just how dangerous they are without the correct training and gear. They assume common sense will be ok, which is precisely the reason so many people are injured by them.

I won't post the images here, but go and look up what 1/2 a sec of running chainsaw will do to a person. And this is how it happens
