I have absolutely no use for this. But I want one.

I'd avoid anything with a short bar like this on safety grounds, personally.

i dont need one but fancy buying it for my Turkey

Wow, a Turkey with a chainsaw

I've read some muppet comments on this forum but this takes the golden medal this month. Armed with the most basic training this machine is simple, safe and efficient to use; I've owned one for nearly 4 years and haven't chopped my arms off yet.
If you want a small hobby chainsaw for dicing up logs for a domestic fire or log burner then you can't go far wrong with this one but check the price in B&Q before. :thumbsup:

Ring any number of professional chainsaw users and see how many of them have one with a 14" bar. Most accidents are caused by people using cheap chainsaws with small blades on large logs or trees when the blade isn't long enough to stick out the other side. This often results in kickback and serious injury. The longer the bar, the safer the chainsaw is.
From the HSE website:
'Never attempt to cut a tree with a diameter greater than the length of the chainsaw blade and watch for branches that may spring back as you cut. Although some chainsaw injuries are caused by operator error, kickback is the greatest cause of chainsaw injuries. In kickback, the upper chain “grabs” in the wood or an obstruction and forces the saw backward, causing operator to either lose control of the saw or lose balance, bringing the saw into contact with the body'
Don't post if you don't know what you are talking about.

I second that, its very dangerous to use a chainsaw with a bard smaller than the circumference of the "object" being cut, this can result in kickback causing injury to yourself or even worse causing you to lose blood and other vital dna evidence at the scene of the crime.


PS does any one know how well this one will cut through bone? As I have some bod......erm animal carcasses to destr...sorry get rid of..........[SIZE=-1]Can you hear the lambs screaming, Clarice?[/SIZE]

Yes, the clue was in my post when I said HOBBY chainsaw and mentioned cutting logs for a domestic log fire. :whistling:

People are stupid but if anyone cuts their arms off attempting to cut down a rainforest with this machine, deserves it.

Sorry mate but I dont see chopping logs for the fire with a bloody chainsaw as a hobby, seriously its a chainsaw mate and deserves respect as a lethal weapon if used incorrectly, pay a bit extra and get a proper chainsaw with longer bar its worth it as they can be bought for not that much more and correctly maintained will give you many years of service.

Missed this deal earlier. Just collected mine.
I would say quite a few pro users would have a chainsaw with a smaller bar than this. They wouldnt prune a tree with a anything longer, and thats all I will be using it for. If anything is a bigger diameter than 8" then I'm leaving well alone, its too heavy.
Ive also used chainsaws to "compact" kitchen worktops and units to take down the tip, great fun :viking:
