Hints & Tips
This is the time of year that many of us are wishing we had a chainsaw to cut up that old pile of logs at the bottom of the garden ready for winter.
A good chainsaw is a very useful investment and here are three from favourite British brand Mountfield currently available at very keen prices.
The Mountfield MC3816 Petrol Chainsaw has the company’s own 38.3 cc 2-stroke engine with electronic ignition and a primer pump for easy starting and has a 40 cm guide bar with a sprocket nose to prolong the chain’s life.
This makes it the ideal machine for felling small trees and cutting down overhanging branches. It is also ideal for cutting up the resulting branches ready for the fire.
I weighs just 4.5 kg
There is a huge variety of special offers and extras available with this saw including chain saw and engine oil and a fuel mixing bottle as well as spare chains.
The maker’s recommended retail price is £219 and we did have it for sale for £129 but it has now been reduced further to £109.
It is delivered free the next working day and has a one year warranty from Mountfield.
The second machine from the same company currently on special offer is the Mountfield MC4018 Petrol Chainsaw.
This one has a more powerful 40.1 cc engine, again designed to be easy to start. The chain bar is 45 cm long with a sprocket nose for a smoother action with automatic lubrication.
It has a double chain brake and automatic chain lubrication and is suitable for felling smaller trees and general wood cutting.
It weighs just 4.1 kg excluding the bar and chain and again there is a range of extras available when you buy this machine.
It costs £139 compared with the maker’s recommended retail price of £279, has a one year warranty from the manufacturers and is delivered free the next working day.
And finally the Mountfield MC5020 Petrol Chainsaw is an extra-powerful machine with a 50.9 cc engine and a 50 cm guide bar.
With the more powerful engine and longer guide bar it is suitable for felling bigger trees and cutting up the resulting thicker wood. And like the two previous models it has the sprocket nose on the end of the guide bar the ease the chains path and prolong its life.
The automatic chain lubrication is adjustable and the chain bar has a double acting chain brake plus a chain catcher in case it becomes derailed.
Again a wide range of accessories and extras are available at special prices.
This one costs £189 compared with Mountfield’s recommended price of £379, a massive saving.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a one year maker’s warranty.
