Chainsaw Works Great At First
Out of the box the chainsaw looks great for the money, feels robust enough and is quick and easy to assemble.
Having filled the chainsaw with oil and proceeded to tackle some small limbs of an ash tree, it tackled these with relative ease.
However, having moved onto a larger limb the chainsaw refused to cut. It certainly has the power to tackle the cut, but the chain would not cut. Instead it was simply wearing the branch away.
When I checked the chain it was bone dry and the oil reservoir was still at maximum level so I put it down to an oil flow problem. Screwfix where excellent and I picked up a replacement chainsaw with no fuss.
Spurred on by the largely excellent reviews. I let this chainsaw run oil through for a couple of minutes before tackling any cuts in a bid to prevent the problem with the earlier saw. Sadly, this replacement suffered the same fate. As soon as I attempted to tackle a branch no larger than my thigh, it stopped cutting and when checked, the chain was bone dry.
I can only surmise that when cutting, debris is somehow blocking the oil flow. Having opened the chain guard, there was a lot of sawdust etc in there despite only having made a couple of small cuts.
This chainsaw is really only good for removing small limbs and if that's all you need to use it for, it represents very good value. However, I would strongly recommend getting the chain guard off and giving the machine a good clean after each use to ensure a prolonged lifespan.

Needed to fell a few small trees and cu up the resulting logs and this cheap chainsaw has performed remarkably. Was cautious due to a few poor reviews of its cutting ability and I can only assume they fitted the chain on backwards. It's easy to assemble and ripped through a 7 - 8 inch tree trunk in less than a minute.
Can't review long term reliability but worked well so far.
