Don't confuse this with the inferior AKE40 that you can pick up for a few pounds less than this. I have one of these and they're fantastic. Obviously you take a few safety precautions using them (!!) but what I like about this machine is that it's very light but still has a 40cm chain, is extremely easy to tension and clean and you don't feel you have to be built like a lumberjack to operate it! If like me you've been scared of chainsaws in the past but feel you need one, this would be an ideal first purchase imho. Comes with a 2 year warranty btw.

Quick tip: use cooking oil rather than the expensive mineral oils on offer to lubricate the chain as you'll get through a lot oil as with any chain saw.

Key details:

Powerful 1900 watt motor with chain speed of 12 m/sec for outstanding cutting performance
High quality Oregon chain
Bosch SDS system for easy, precise, tool-less assembly and chain tensioning
Powerful 1,900W motor, chain bar length 400mm
High chain speed (12 m/s) for optimum cutting performances
Rapid-reaction kick-back brake (Quick Stop) for increased user safety
Ergonomic handle for both sawing and felling
Automatic oil lubrication
