Found 3rd Mar 2013
Found in homebase Horsham Branch.

Bought one and used yesterday afternoon. Easy to set up, easy to start, works well. Already cut down fence posts, a couple of trees, ivy from trees, and some firewood. Am pretty impressed. I don't expect it to live forever but it's cheaper than hiring one for a week!!

I appreciate it is instore but cant even see it on website so what is the chance of there being in stock at other stores, will call in but dont hold much hope

'This product is no longer available. Continue shopping at Homebase'

Must be old stock so not much chance of finding one

Cheap is the keyword here and you get hat you pay for.I had one and the bearings shattered well within the first few weeks, Homebase did not want to know and said I had to send it off to UK repair centre. After I kicked up a fus and quoted the Sale of Goods Act eventually they gave me a refund.
Save up and but a decent one, you know it makes sense

Chinese tat. Oil pump will die within first few months of use, guaranteed.

For this money, buy an electric one from B&Q and keep exchanging it as it goes wrong.

Otherwise buy used from Ebay. Dolmar PS34/Makita DCS34 can be had for not much more than this. Or for early £100s you can get something in the semi-pro/farmer league...

If you insist on Chinese tat then buy one of the bazillion '5200' type from Ebay. It will still implode, but at least you can pick a colour you like!

To be fair the reviews on home base are overall very positive...

Yes...... Been waiting for a deal like this for a looooong time, a very long time indeed hahahahaha hahahahaha cough cough hahahahahahahahaha

How many miles per gallon?

Sovereign? Is it named after Marie Antoinette?

i work for a garden machinery company and you get what you pay for do not expect any parts back up for this machine at all!! they are
Chinese made with a sovereign label.

I echo Philipes comment, there are lots of cheap ones on ebay etc, they come over by the container load. if you want one to last it'll cost more.

They should never sell these in diy stores, just Google chainsaw injury under images,you need protective boots, trousers, jacket, gloves and helmet with face protector and probably a safety course too, these chainsaws are Chinese garbage with unreliable chain brakes and poor quality guards, steer well clear.......

They should never sell kitchen knifes in case you slip and cut yourself or deodorant aerosols in case you get it to close to a flame then. They should just sell sponges and tissue paper. Then again, some muppet will slip on a wet sponge or miss their nose and poke them self in the eye with the tissue. Nanny state here we come....

Had it got any safety features

All I need now is a mask.

Andy_spoo, there is a slight difference between a knife wound and a mistake with a chainsaw. Whilst i wouldnt dream of banning them, i would strongly suggest reading about 'good technique' to avoid the obvious f*** ups. Thats not nanny state, thats common sense.

For light domestic use its perfect. Don't go planning on sawing down Sherwood Forest though. And for £60 it's a proper hot deal. Thanks for the heat!

Andy spoo, you don't understand what I'm getting at, when these kickback they can take an arm off just like that, staff at home base won't even know a dam thing about these, when you're holding down a log with your boot and sawing it and it kicks back and the brake fails it can climb your trousers and take your meat and 2 veg clean off, these things ain't no diy tool, in the wrong hands they are an accident waiting to happen. All I'm saying is buy a decent make from a proper retailer with all the appropriate safety gear and advice. As for nannystate you obviously never used a chainsaw.

I have 4 of them I have to say it is one of the best value for money . Just keep them clean thay will larst you for a long time last year I cut up over 6 tons of wood and railway sleepers countdown big trees as well. I have had mine for over 4 years now. the primer pump has failed on 1 of them but that was an issue that was solved at the cost of 3 pounds 50 p. new spark plug and chains but that is all nice and light to work up a tree with. Every happy with mine. excellent value for money
