This looks a good enough chainsaw to cut logs for my wood burner.

This is a good price.Amazon £129.48.Tesco £139. Cheapest ive seen. i know you can buy a cheaper brand from aldi netto etc but this seems half decent.

Been looking at this one, I believe its the next model up in the range as its more expensive than the 738.

So I think the 738 listed here at £99 is about the right price

Great for when the zombies come

I need to prune my fruit trees, so this will come handy

I got a McCulloch a couple of years ago and it's been fine for light use. All chainsaws require correct adjustment and maintenance and are extremely dangerous if you don't know what you are doing so please get some basic training from someone that knows how to use one.

Good price, so hot from me.

Excellent, time to reinact Texas chainsaw massacre...

Should do the job old lad!!!

It seems to struggle a bit on the leg bone, but glides through the others like a hot knife through butter. PM me for any other advice!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, film yourself using it, preferably in the bath, then post it to one of those shock sites with the word 'Russian' in the title.

its not bad, I find that with a larger carcass you need to cut slower otherwise you will not get the desired blood splatter effect.

You hope, my wifes' bits have been sat outside for nigh on 2 weeks. Well, they took the black bags the other day but the recyclable bits are still sat out there.

I had my wifes bits outside on bin day in 3 black bags. I heard a knock on the door and the binman was stood there. He said "excuse me mate , do you have any more black bags cos the **** has fell out of this one!

These are ok for the price. However some of the adjusters are just mounted on plastic and are therefore really easy to brake. Parts are really expensive although a lot of them are common with some of the big brand chainsaws. Use the money you save to buy some chainsaw trousers!!!

Looks pretty armless to me!

Great tool, good price, but needs to be treated with lots of respect and the correct safety gear is not just common sense, but a necessity.

You know when you just want something, but don't really have a good reason to buy it..... Well thanks you have now given me the reason I needed.

Trousers made from chainsaws? I just gotta have some.

McCulloch sold out years ago to the chinese, this will be tat...for 100 quid you could get a second hand stihl or husky...at this price point even the ryobi is a better deal.

These should be OK for light domestic use only.

Wouldn't buy anything other than Stihl or Husqvarna myself - there again my use is semi professional.

Remember that personal protection equipment (trousers, boots, gloves etc.) are absolutely essential when using chainsaws.

for £100 its worth a pop too in my book

Suprised then you did not know that McCulloch are owned by Husqvarna.
Not saying its of the same built quality but at least the R&D would be shared across all brands and so should many of the parts, just like buying a Skoda and Audi who are both part of the same VAG group

This general purpose chainsaw from McCulloch, part of the Husqvarna family, features an EcoBoost engine that gives lower emissions, increased power and reduced fuel consumption. With a 14"/35cm length bar the saw glides effortlessly through most applications using a 38cc 2 stroke petrol engine. Weighing 5.5kg, the saw incorporates automatic chain oiling, anti kickback safety system and an anti-vibration system. Offering complete satisfaction, the unit comes with a full twelve month guarantee against manufacturing defects.

Suitable for removing branches from trees or preparing fire logs for the burner, this multi-purpose chainsaw offers versatility and performance with a 1.5kw engine output.

Mine arrived yesterday, not Chinese as someone stated but made in USA by Husquarna.


This chainsaw is good for the money, I'm sure Stihl is more robust but the nearest equivalent is more than twice the price.

That would be the north american operation which was owned by taiwan tools untill about 2 years ago? seriously do you think husqvarna can turn around mcculloch in two years after the taiwan boys ran it into the ground?...i bought mcculloch in the past and never again. If you want a husky buy a husky,..although their latest offerings arent as good as the past incarnations thanks to new environmental laws for small 2 stroke engines.

I once had a seat ibiza which was engineered by porsche or so it claimed..strangely enough it had the same engine as a fiat tipo and was a complete dog.

No longer available online, may still be able to pick up one in store though.
