- First Chainsaw
First Chainsaw This is the first chainsaw I have owned. I did not find the assembly instructions particularly informative but managed to work things out eventually. However, I put the chain on the wrong way around so my first use was particularly disappointing. Then I realised what I must have done, reversed the chain and now it cuts like a knife through butter.
My only suggestion would be to let us know we need some chainsaw oil when purchasing so we could add it to the order. This will prevent a trip out to purchase some before being able to use the product.
Excellent I'm very pleased with this chainsaw. It was easy to assemble once I had looked on youtube to see how it fits together and works very well.
Very pleased with this product and it made light work of removing a tree stump and roots from my garden.
- Worst Chainsaw I've Ever Had.
Worst Chainsaw I've Ever Had. Bought this chainsaw in April 2016. Lots of features and a nice box of extras, but it's the worst chainsaw I've ever had.
It's kept clean, well oiled and the petrol mix is perfect yet its unbelievably hard work trying to start it. I've actually given myself blisters this morning trying to start it. Not acceptable for a chainsaw that's only been used a half a dozen times!! Waste of money, wish I'd never bought it.
- Just the job
Just the job It took me a while and some headscratching to assemble the chainsaw, There was not much to do but I made heavy weather of it until I found the video on assembly. I found I was doing the right things but just didn't press firmly enough to get the two main parts together. After the video, and realizing I was doing the right thing, it was easy.
Once assembled it started exactly 'as it said on the tin' and did a fast and efficient job cutting 5" - 6" logs. Then I tried it on large Birch 'rounds' of about 18" diameter. This meant going in from two sides but it handled the job with no problem.
My only caution is - beware the on/off switch. If you've had another brand of saw without one, it's easy to forget to switch on, and you can tip the switch while working. No problem as, just switch on and pull, and it's away again.
I could not be more pleased with this saw - it punches way above its price!

Overall Very Impressed... Easy to assemble and use after reading the book. Recommended for a first time user.
- Fiddly to Set Up but Works Well
Fiddly to Set Up but Works Well Good value for money but not the easiest to set up. Once it got going it did the job well, but chain needed continual adjustment ( but that's probably the case with all new chainsaws.)
Easy to start and cuts well. Nice and light. Was delivered quickly and good back up emails from MowDirect.
- Great Little Chainsaw
Great Little Chainsaw Easy purchase, quick delivery and it is exactly as described. I used it straightaway cutting up logs and wish I had bought one years ago!
- Very Good Starter Chainsaw
Very Good Starter Chainsaw Excellent to use, very robust, with enough power to cut large tree sections. Clutch stops chain before you get any kickback.
Easy to clean and maintain. I can't see the need for a bigger one if the small ones are this good.
- Buying My First Chainsaw
Buying My First Chainsaw Very good chainsaw. I have used many others and wanted my own for light felling and cutting down tree trunk sections too large to split with an axe. Easy to put together and adjust.
Just the right amount of power, cuts really well, with no kickback. Very safe, and light. Very good value so far
- Excellent Value for Money
Excellent Value for Money A very easy to use product which came with a useful set of protective items that, after some assembly and purchasing the required fuel, enabled me to use it straight away.
Very good performance on the logs I was cutting. Saved me a lot of time sawing by hand. Definitely recommend. v
Very prompt delivery from MowDirect. Thank you. .
