If you need a chainsaw, get an entry level one from the well known makes, if it develops a fault you can get it repaired, the cheap ones are VERY hard to get anyone to mend / service.

No matter why they advertise - even life-time guarantee - there is built-in obsolescene - one aunt bought a set of expensive pots and pans with life-time guarantee - and of course, they said damage to handles not included.

Paid £49.95 in store just over a week ago

Both Homebase and cheap electric chainsaws are a waste of time in my experience. I bought the £80 petrol one Aldi were doing a few months back and it's worked through 8 large trees so far with no issues whatsoever. A previous electric one broke the chain tensioning adjuster after a couple of uses. It was still less of a disappointment than Homebase.

Or get a proper saw

This is what Chuck Norris uses to shave every morning.

Electric are considerably cheaper to run and require minimal maintenance. I bring wood home in long lengths and cut to length with electric chainsaw. Wouldn't use for pruning or cutting trees down. For the latter definitely my stihl. Note a previous Qualcast was actually made by Husqvarna and had fault which normally didn't appear till 2nd 3rd year.

Had one of these , sold it on eBay as no good for anything apart from light work

Would buy a petrol one next time for the power

Same here, they called to provide a choice of delivery dates which were all weeks away oO

I bought a WORX 303 from Amazon for 60quid during one of their lighting deals - it had great reviews in the US so I took a punt.

The chain it came with was a anti-kickback safety chain, which is great for home users but poor for cutting anything well / quickly. Replacing the chain to a non-safety one like a friend's Stihl has made a big difference.

I've used the WORX saw for limbing and taking down small trees (20-25cm diameter cuts) and dealt with it fine. It still took three times as long as a friend's petrol Stihl but we talking 10 seconds rather than 3 seconds. Given he paid 500quid and I paid 60quid, I'd expect the difference to be larger.

If I didn't have the WORX saw, I'd entertain buying the Qualcast. It might be a happy coincidence but I've noticed that some of the products in the Qualcast range mirror products in the Bosch range where as others do not - I know that some store specific models for Argos/Homebase are made in China so I don't mean these.

This saw looks similar to a Bosch AKE but has a higher power motor and the Oregon guide bar so probably not from Bosch but looks like a decent product.

For those that want to save on delivery, your local store might have stock - see http://www.homebase.co.uk/en/homebaseuk/qualcast-2000w-electric-chainsaw---40cm-284156

If you can combine this with a 10-15% off that might happen on the bank holiday weekend, you're on to a winner!!!

Nothing wrong with this saw, manage your expectations, consider what it's for and workload and use it sensibly. Don't expect it to fell 'large' tree after tree.

Does this come with a spare set of fingers?

Lidl have a similar one available on the 31st Augusthttp://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z462/lightrider1/109776_03_teaserthemeworld2x1.jpg[/img]

A&E is going to be busy!

up to what sort of diameter tree would this manage ?

Not sure what the maximum is but the chain rips through the cable with ease. Get GAS!!!

After Bosch took over Qualcast, they licensed use of the name to Home Retail Group (Homebase and Argos) - so Qualcast products are not actually made by Qualcast, but HRG.

I am still waiting after 2 weeks for my last Homebase eBay order :-(

Make sure there are no puppies around, they jam up the chain and block the oil dispenser.

The one from Lidl seems to requires extra sharpner for 20 quid, and Homebase one has an inbuilt sharpner? Sounds cheaper and convenient...! Any comments?

On the other hand this one is 2000 watts but lidl one is 2200 watts -> means bit more power in Lidl chainsaw??
