Excellent reviews, but don't forget your chain oil because there's none in the box !

Or just use veg oil

Or just use veg oil


Didn't know that, are there any problems using veg oil?

Veg oil often congeals and blocks the oil lines. Also attracts mice, rats etc. Also mould. Also it is too runny and doesn't cling to the chain. Plenty of people use it regardless...

Thanks for the info, I've ordered "proper" oil, until I know what I'm doing!!! Spoke to a relative who uses "big boy" chainsaws for a living, who said to use it until I'm use to it.

I bought this a few weeks ago. Was well impressed. Has 2 year warrantee so can't lose at £45

Great to hear that Mines due to be delivered Friday, so I'm hoping the weather's good at the weekend so I can sort my logs out!

Ordered thanks. Will hopefully get some small trees down at the weekend subject to the weather!

Im 30yrs old, never owned a chainsaw and something inside me is saying "buy one".

Is this suitable for a fancy dress party? I'm worried that someone might trip over the wire. Should I just stick with the axe?

The safety kit will cost you more than this. Or you could take a chance. But remember "chainsaw injuries are rarely minor". On the plus side, if you're looking to lose weight, legs and arms weigh a surprising amount.


I've been thinking about getting one of these for the wife for years now

Buy a proper one if you do. Electric ones are glorified pruning scissors

good for mother in law

I know it's cheap but this will probably cost me an arm and a leg! Boom Boom, we're here all week!

Bought this last week. Perfect for the job. Will be using again this weekend.

Strange isn't it. There must be a list as long as my arm of things I can no longer buy because they're 'too dangerous' (allegedly), yet any old Charlie can walk into Screwfix and buy a chainsaw.

They scare me. Guy cuts trees for me here, does it for a living. Missing digits

There's nothing wrong with electric chainsaws. If you're using one occasionally, and / or it's in a fixed place with power, they're way more convenient. I have 2 petrol and a 'leccy (Makita) saws, each has it's place and none of them are 'glorified pruners.'

Why do the health and safety police always pop up on chainsaw posts but never never come out and lecture us on how dangerous motor cars are and how many people die in them because actually they are quite dangerous in irresponsible hands., as are knives etc etc etc.

But this is a bit like poking your hands in an engine while its running. Plus you don't need a license to use a chainsaw

Most people driving or using a knife the way most people do are not at great risk, statistically.

Don't buy a chainsaw, you seem to be confused about which end is which.

All car users are (or should be) trained to use them safely.There are strict laws about using them safely (eg. not speeding, driving with due care and attention, using seat belts if fitted). Whereas any Tom, Dick or Harry can pick one of these up from Screwfix, wander out into their garden and start chopping things up with absolutely no training, protective clothing or clue what they're doing. I'm quite sure some people can use them safely, but not everyone.

We inherited one from a relative. My wife gave it away before I got a chance to use it. Probably sensible, given that I seem to manage to injure myself with the most innocent of tools (the last one was a broom - the hollow metal stick broke and stabbed me in the arm). I'm still tempted to get one, but wouldn't use it without protective gear.

Some lovely pictures here from Toolbox, who do seem concerned that people should use them safely. Don't click if you're squeamish about injuries.

Can't you just go down the pub, grab a pint, and wait for it all to blow over?

Fair point. In your face zombie horde!

Feedback on mine. worked fine. Assmble arm and chain, tension,fill with oil, run a couple of times, recheck tension and away you go. Check tension every so often (flat blade screwdriver).

I allready had safety equipment, but EYE protection is a must. I used a breathing mask too, but didnt need ear defenders as its not that loud. If you use a chain saw without at least some basic eye protection, you are a fool.

The chain stops as soon as you release the trigger, so no danger of cutting of your limbs if you let go of the trigger. Basic common sense needed here.

Item worked great, I cut down 12 trees and then started lopping the branches off with it to make the trees easier to handle and dispose of. For £50 (inc cost of oil) its being a great piece of kit. I probably will never need it again, so might flog it 2nd hand for £20-30 and its still been well worth it compared to hiring one or paying a professional to cut them down.

A breathing mask????
If you're buying this at least get a guide and files to keep the chain sharp(ish). Blunt chains are horrible to use.
This sort of thing is dirt cheap / simple to use:

Breathing mask might not be the correct terminology. A mask that covers your mouth n nose, usually cheap to buy in the safety sections. Stops you inhaling saw dust, flying debris etc.

Please can this be unexpired? e-mail received today shows it is still available at this price (don't know why they set an expiry date then continue to sell at same price!)
