Hints & Tips
Many will have lit the woodburner or fire for the first time recently as winds from the north and east have left the evenings distinctly chilly.
If you have old logs that have been hanging around at the back of the garden now’s a good time to saw them up for firewood.
And this is also an excellent time for lopping branches and felling trees as the sap has fallen back leaving the wood needing less time to season.
So if you’re looking for a decent chainsaw you won’t go wrong with a machine from Italy’s leading manufacturer Oleo-Mac.
These saws are exclusive to MowDirect and offer exceptional value for money.
Many of Oleo-Mac’s smaller machines have a free safety kit and the models made for professional use, on farms and by professional gardeners, give outstanding performance, reliability and a long working life.
If you’re an ordinary householder in need of a chainsaw this machine is a great but, the Oleo-Mac GS-370 Pro Petrol Chainsaw with Free Starter-Pack.
Featuring Burn Right technology it is very fuel efficient and produces fewer emissions than many similar machines and is ideal for felling small trees, cutting branches and preparing wood for the fire.
A 35.2cc engine produces 22.1hp and it has rubber stops and dampers to keep vibration levels down. And the carburettor has its own vibration protection.
The guide bar is 35cm long and it has a chain brake as an important safety device should the machine kick back while in use.
It weighs 4.2kg and is delivered free the next working day with safety equipment and accessories including safety gloves, helmet with ear muffs and visor, two-stroke engine oil, chain oil and a fuel mixing bottle. You can also buy a spare chain for £14.95.

This one has a longer guide bar and more powerful engine and would be one for the short list for homeowners with small copses to maintain and firewood preparation.
The Oleo-Mac GS-410C Pro Petrol Chainsaw with Free Starter Pack has a 39cc engine designed to last a long time and to be easy to start even when it’s cold. An automatic chain oil pump keeps everything well lubricated when it is cutting.
The guide bar is 40cm – 16in – long and it is a wide chain pitch to handle thicker wood.

“The saw cut very easily and cleanly, noise and vibration were a lot less than I’m used to with my old chainsaw, so that pleased the neighbours, and despite having osteoarthritis I found the use and operation of the device much easier than I expected,” said one customer, adding “Very pleasant to do business with a highly professional company, who value their customers, responding in timely and courteous exchanges.”
And for farmers and professionals who need powerful and reliable machines, this is the one.
