Posted 18th Oct 2020
Another Einhell product that I have added to my collection! There are like all products negative reviews, but I have not had a single issue with mine, if used and maintained properly, it should be fine!

I bought this at the higher price a short while ago and it is a cracking piece of kit.

Product Details

• 1.3kW two-stroke, low vibration, petrol engine
• Oregon chain speed of up to 21m/s
• 35cm Oregon bar and chain
• Kick back protection and instant chain brake
• Tool-less tensioning and changing
• Centrifugal clutch disengages the cutting tool in idle mode
• 0.26 litre fuel tank capacity
• Weighs 5.5kg
Comes with petrol/oil mixing bottle and a cutter guard.
Use with Chainsaw Oil 36322 and 2 Stroke Oil 36225 .

The GC-PC 1335 I TC petrol chainsaw is a handy, efficient tool and practical helper for sawing firewood, for thinning out scrub, for removing branches and for cutting down trees. A quality rail and chain from OREGON ensure optimum cutting performance. Thanks to a choke and primer, the engine always starts without difficulty. The chain can be tensioned and changed without tools.

The GC-PC 1335 I TC has good safety features. Pressure on the finger guard will trigger the chain brake and stop the chain within a few milliseconds. For safety in the event of the chain jumping off the rail, there is a chain catch. A large, robust claw stop ensures safe handling on felling and cutting-to-length jobs, and it also serves as a pivot point when sawing horizontal trunks. In idle mode, the centrifugal clutch disengages the chain from the engine. Thanks to the crank shaft with bilateral bearings, the engine runs with very low vibrations. For high user-friendliness even on long work sessions there is also an anti-vibration system. The cutter rail and chain are lubricated automatically.

Complete with a petrol/oil mixing bottle and a cutter guard.

In that case... I'd definitely recommend getting one... Plus Halloween is only around the corner!
Looks the same design as Aldi Ferrex.
“If used and maintained properly it should be fine”. - I’ve just done a search for piston rings for this model, not found any so far, so I’m not sure about the long term viability of these.
I’d be interested to know if parts are available as I’m happy maintaining/ repairing kit if it’s viable, otherwise I’ll stick with buying used Stihls etc for which the world is awash with spares.
This is great for enforcing social distancing, heaty!
Looking at the reviews on the Toolstation site I’m alarmed to see several mentioning the chain jumping off. Not sure what is going on here - whether it’s operator error or quality, but with a chainsaw this is a serious safety issue.

Yeah, I don't doubt that this will never be as good as a STIHL saw... There's a big big gap between quality and getting what you pay for. I imagine easily getting a few years use out of it before I'll be replacing for another, but for £80... No complaints whatsoever!

My comment was purely for those who in the reviews have said the chain has gone blunt after the first use or first few uses or as you have kindly pointed out, jumped off etc. I have used mine to cut old trees at both my house and other family members as well as taken down a huge shed and trimmed the timber down with no issues whatsoever, so each to their own really.

We've had the global pandemic but no zombie apocalypse. Might get this in case that happens next year best to be prepared

That's next on the list after this one passes! Definitely one to be prepared for! Who knows what this covid vaccine will have in it... Thoughts of resident evil are running through my head right now!
Seems quite good. I like the look of the tool-less tensioning system.
I've been using cheap chainsaws for the last 7 or 8 years without major issue. They tend to break after 3 or 4 years but, as per the previous comment, you just buy another. And still a *lot* cheaper than a Stihl.
Sometimes chains jump; generally when you're doing it wrong - either with the way you are cutting or because you have failed to stay on top of the tension. On each of the 8 or so times this has happened to me, I was never even close to being injured. That said, always wear good gloves and and helmet with face shield. Good boots as well.
Kevlar trousers are good but expensive.
Looking to a hockey mask for Halloween and this will be perfect
Just what we need to allow us to get out albeit to A&E but the way my social life is I'd count that as a win! Lol

Cheap Stihl or Husqvarna saws are still generally not economical to repair, so arguably not much better than a cheapo £75 Chinese effort like this ONCE faulty. The Stihl etc saw will be better while working though, and probably take longer to break. You can get parts for these if you know where to look, but it's rarely worth it.

Stihl parts are cheap - piston ring sets around a tenner, carb overhaul kits for a few quid etc. They’re easy to work on too.

If you do it yourself I guess; I do it professionally, so I'm talking about this from the perspective of customers paying £50 per hour labour etc. Carb kits on a cheap saw, yes, but pot and piston etc, not usually worth it. Major repairs are usually skipped in favour of replacement on cheap saws including Stihl etc.
