Electric Chainsaws (40cm and Extending Pruner) £30 @ Lidl

12
Found 14th Sep 2014
Popped into my local LIDL earlier and they are selling off both their standard 40cm Electric Chainsaw's and also the Extending electric Pruner (I already have one of them and after 2 years it is still going strong).

I decided to buy the 40cm one and it seems great value for money and is I believe half their original price. I have briefly tried it, it's fairly light and the chain stops spinning immediately if you let go of the trigger or use the emergency brake

They only had about three of each in my local store and they are labelled with £30 pink stickers. As these were last available a few weeks ago there is a good chance that over stores will have them at the reduced price I think.

Please see my replies below for the links to the specifications...

Excellent for putting a hole in one.

Took down 4 conifers of about 7 feet high. Respect it and use your common sense with some safety gear.

Mine seems to leak oil when not in use which is a pain but otherwise good for the £45.00 I paid for it last year.

Bought the aldi extending one the other week (well the father in law picked us one up from his local branch - no pun intended) and went to use it today. The bald is crap and wouldn't even cut through a 1" branch - and guess what - no bloody receipt and wife still hasn't phoned to ask if he kept it which I doubt - so £60 quid down the drain.....

I can't speak for the Aldi one but the Lidl Florabest Pruner I've had for two years has this summer cut 9" oak and sycamore quite happily. the chain is getting blunt but it can be sharpened (in fact lidl also had an electric tool for doing that)

yes I noticed mine seemed to be expelling oil out of the breather hole in the cap, I thought I had just over filled it.

Had a look in-store in Hamstead (Birmingham), it is £49.99 there. Assistant confirmed the price and said he wasnt aware of any further discount. I was still tempted given the three year warranty that comes with it....

49.99 in Newport. Pruner was £29.99 though.

Worth telling them "£30 in Maidstone"?

Will pop in to another branch and mention the price at Maidstone and see what they say... Thanks
