From trusted Swedish brand Stiga, this high-quality but affordable petrol chainsaw will prove a great buy for less experienced chainsaw-users and ticks all of the boxes in terms of cutting-capability and ease of use.
Delivering a beefy 2.15hp is a 38.6cc Stiga two-stroke air-cooled engine with a premium nylon-net air-filter that provides optimum protection against debris-ingress; and a digital ignition-coil that combines with a butterfly-valve carburettor to ensure fast, reliable starting.
A magnesium crankcase works to speed-up cooling and to minimise weight; while a three-piece crankshaft reduces structural stress so as to maximise service-life.
Super-safe to work with, the Stiga SP386 incorporates a dual-action quick-stop chain-brake that’s triggered either manually by pulling on the handily placed lever; or automatically by ‘kick-back’-induced inertia.
It boasts a high-specification anti-vibration system that combines with its ergonomic front-handle design and low-weight build to confer excellent operator-comfort; and it’s fitted with an automatic/adjustable -chain-oil pump that reduces friction and allows you to adapt to the timber-density.
This mid-sized 40cm model also benefits from straightforward chain-tensioning by way of a side-screw mechanism.
Spark-plug key and chain-adjustment screwdriver included.
