Ideal for cutting-up logs for firewood, and the pruning and limbing of small- to medium-sized branches, the Oleo-Mac GSH-400 Universal Petrol Chainsaw is designed for the serious home-user and has some highly useful features and functions designed to make operation and maintenance remarkably simple and safe.
But don’t think, because this is a domestic-use machine, that any corners have been cut. This is a top-quality chainsaw from one of the word's leading brands. It's built to a high standard, and delivers superior performance and a lengthy working-life at an unbeatable price.
With a powerful 38.9cc two-stroke petrol engine producing an impressive 2hp, this model is fitted with a 35cm guide-bar and has a chain with a 3/8” pitch and a 0.50” gauge for efficient cutting.
It's easy to operate and even has illustrated step-by-step instructions printed on the body, so even less experienced users won't have any problems. A handy multi-function lever further enhances ease-of-use.
Chainsaw maintenance is vital, and this model is as simple to maintain as it is to operate, with transparent tanks in an easily viewable position for checking oil- and fuel-levels; and a primer device that guarantees hassle-free ignition, even from cold. The chain-oil tank-capacity is 0.26-litres and the fuel-capacity is 0.32-litres, so you can spend less time mixing fuel and oil and topping-up. Chain lubrication is automatic, with the pump providing oil to the chain on start-up.
An anti-vibration system, with three spring dampers and three rubber stops, reduces discomfort from engine juddering. Added to this, the carburettor bracket has four integrated anti-vibration mounts to ensure fuel-burning stability under varying operating conditions. It also extends the carburettor’s working life.
The Oleo-Mac GSH-400 Petrol Chainsaw is exceptionally clean-running, making use more comfortable and improving fuel economy for reduced air pollution. An inertia-activated chain-brake is included for optimum kick-back protection. Balance and power-to-weight ratio are vitally important - the weight of this model is an easily manageable 4.5kg.
