Cue the serial murderer jokes....

I had one fell apart after 20 or so cuts


Really? I could have made you fall apart after far less cuts

No, I think he was joking wrong, at least I didn't find it funny.

Seriously, don't bother with junk like this - Stihl or Husqvarna
"Absolute rubbish cheap manufacturing just dreadful don’t bother!! Waste of £100 😩"

"Wouldn't recommend this. Used it twice and the mechanism to adjist chain broke emailed parkers to complain and no reply 3 months down the line."

Just 2 of the reviews when you go to the link if you care to read them. Waste your money if you want to. Smells of self promotion to me.
Chainsaws can be dangerous if you don’t know how to use them. Poor quality chainsaws can be dangerous, period.

Nothing quite like the fear you experience when a chainsaw kicks back and the spinning blades are headed for your face.

Great tools but need respect.
buy cheap, buy twice. this is rubbish

No idea who Homelite are but have been using Ryobi tools from Drills Sanders Jigsaws Chainsaws for years without a single problem. Great performance and durability

and if you can afford it buy one of these
I have one of these, had about 30 hours use out of it so far, and I would say it's been great, never had a problem starting, all works as it should.

Chain tightening mechanism isnt the best but works.

Included chains are garbage.

I did pick mine up as an Amazon warehouse product that arrived as new so I paid less than this, but if I had to buy another I wouldn't be put off buying another one of these at full price.

I've had other petrol garden machinery that is an absolute pain to start, I wouldn't put this in the same league as those.

I'm not afraid of spending money on quality items hence have a Honda lawnmower, but for the little use I need a chain saw for this is perfectly suffice and better value than a beaten up second hand stihl of similar money, which I did look in to.

I'd also recommend screwfix chainsaw trousers as the most reasonably priced compared to quality.

Totally agree, worth spending reasonable money on a decent make. Stihl, Husqvarna or maybe Honda. Stihl one may start at about 3 times the cost of this one but it'll be 1 million times better

Yeh, some of us do learn. Buy cheap, buy twice. Had a Ryobi petrol multi tool. Nightmare to start.....After 5 uses over a year mainly as a grass strimmer, once i tried to start it (after it had been not used during winter for 3 months) approx 30 pulls and it wouldnt start......so frustrated it went airbourne and became a jigsaw puzzle. Then, went straight to the nearest Stihl supplier and bought a Stihl bike handled strimmer.....awesome item

You can spend ten times as much as this though. If you're going to use it for a couple of odd jobs then no need to get a husky as this one will do. If you will use it regularly and give it a good beating then your best bet is an old Stihl before all the auto tune rubbish so you can toy with it yourself.
I became obsessed watching professionals at work on YouTube. Totally fascinating how each situation is handled differently.

Well, if they're not responding surely it would still be useful?
Every man should own a chainsaw, and if you never actually use it, this is a a good choice.

you fell apart? lol
Chainsaws are really dangerous. Using one without the proper training and safety equipment is about as sensible as riding a motorbike with no training or helmet. I would recommend getting a professional in unless you are going to be spending hundreds of hours using a chainsaw. If you are don't buy this saw.
Spend a bit more and get a decent brand. You can get a good Mountfield chainsaw for just over £100, perfect for general use, 2 year warranty and you can get spares for it.
As others have said, use them with real caution especially if you haven't before.

Agreed - if you’re using it regularly. But let’s be honest, most people who buy this will only start it a couple of times to cut branches etc. Better off hiring one.

For anyone that does get one, drain the tank and carb before you store it.

Chances are the jets got gunked up. I see plenty of ryobi ones that people throw away when all it needs is a carb clean.
Can someone please explain to me why and why any individual who values his life and safety will buy this??? Just looking at this tool gives me shivers and makes me want to crap myself with fear and anxiety. This is why when I go into the tool shops I avoid the tool section like a plague!

Its fairly common knowledge, they are set too lean from new to pass emissions tests, they start poorly, run rough and easily get bogged down. Don't buy a Ryobi without first buying a pacman style carb tool!

Homelite are another of the cheap common brands found in B&Q type stores. They don't look as good as Ryobis but the build quality is equally crap and parts availability is poor.
