Hitachi CS33EB(35P) 35cm 1.67hp 32.2cc Petrol Chainsaw
One tree wonder
Bought this saw today to do some light tree felling but after an hour or so the chain was that blunt that it doesnt cut and I had to go back to a amnual saw.
Looking through screwfix im not sure if they do a spare chain or not but even if they do the saw should last longer than a few hours cutting small shrubs and trees.
Buy cheap buy twice! keep telling myself this but everytime I fall foul.

Bought this little saw to use when I am out and about gathering firewood for the stove on my canal boatâ¦â¦find it easy to start .
The bevel gear on the chain adjuster was found to be missing a tooth but hitachi replaced it next day delivery free of charge ( a manufacturing fault apparently), the clutch tends to start making a strange noise after it has done a lot of cutting and got hotâ¦.but despite these 2 things I am very happy with itâ¦â¦better for light duty than heavy dutyâ¦.hope the clutch lasts out.
Have cut down a 12" diam tree with no problem.
Just keep on top of the maintenance and keep the chain sharp :-).

Gave up after 1 hour
After an hour of hard work it started to cut out, and needed constant restarting. Took back to screw fix who refunded with no fuss.

What a load of rubbish
I have had 2 of these chain saws. The first one would cut out as soon as I started to rev the saw and the replacement was difficult to start and the oil pump failed. Seriously think about another option
