lidl or any supermarket for that matter is the last place id buy a chainsaw

Why?

More importantly, who cuts up wood in dungarees and not chainsaw trousers? I have yet to see an electrical chainsaw worth having, 2 stroke petrol is king for this kind of application, much much more powerful.

Not saying this isnt a good deal and price especially with the 3 yr warranty but but Argos have the Bosch 40 at £79 today with free gloves and glasses, also free £5 voucher, these usually are over £100. voted hot

Cracking chainsaw, would have cost £100's for us to have our trees removed, sliced them like butter and the next day when I woke up someone had pinched all the chopped up wood.

Those look like chainsaw trousers - my Makita chainsaw trousers are dungaree style (as are most decent ones). But you make a valid point....it would be sensible for people to buy the safety gear and ideally get some basic training

I've a 'rubbish' B&Q one for years, probably 4+, works fine for cutting up wood for a wood burner, I personally don't grow giant redwood trees in the back garden so find electric perfectly adequate and mine is quite a lot lower power rating. Chainsaws, are perfectly safe providing you pay attention at all times and take care.

0.1s is still long enough to slice off your average boaby,,,

nah, 4 stroke petrol is better now...not cheap but a decent stihl or other decent make will last a long time, guess it depends how much stuff you need to cut

Don't disagree with you at all - 4 Stroke has many benefits over 2 (quieter, less smelly etc) but is still very expensive for a home user. 2 stroke is light, powerful and cheap as chips

Guns are perfectly safe providing you are on the right end of them. I am a firm believer that chainsaws should not be available to the public without proper training and proof of safety gear should be required, or purchased at the same time. Most of the people buying this cheap gear won't even know what kick back is, let alone how to avoid it.

Point in case our teutonic friend from the picture has no proper visor / ear defenders - both basic requirements for chainsaw work. He has some lab goggles and earphones in!

My dad bought a Lidl "Parkside" Electric chainsaw several years ago. He uses it mainly for ripping tree trunks down to a size/weight where he/we can lift them onto his bandsaw to prepare them for his lathe.

He's cut up some pretty large bits of wood with it, and yes it is a little slow compared to a petrol saw, but on the plus side it is light, less noisy, and stops the chain pretty quick when you release the switch.

Apart from sharpening and replacing chains, we did have to clean it up, unblock and fix a minor problem with the oil pump a couple of years ago, but other than that it has been fine.
