Yes I also have the use of a chainsaw along side many other power tools. I love DIY, making furniture and do property development so need to use trustworthy tools which will stand the test of time.
I love Makita and I have use of quite a few of their tools. They are also one of the leading chainsaw brands.
The Makita EA3500S35B is a new brand of saws designed to offer cutting edge user features while being environmentally friendly with regards to standards. This model is light (weighing 4.4kg) in comparison to some so great for me as my arm strength is terrible and when cutting through large tree trunks you need the strength to get through it in one or two goes so the weight helps massively. It also has lower horse power. Featuring a 35cc 2-stroke petrol engine, this chainsaw comes fitted as standard with a 35cm bar size. It is fitted with an automatic chain brake and has an anti-vibration system,
The engine runs at a lower temperature meaning it will have an extended life and it eases user comfort. As I said before its environmentally friendly - good emission levels and increased fuel consumption.
I was a bit scared at starting the chain saw the first time but when I finally did it I realised how easy it was. This is apparently due to the Memory power Ignition system, primer carburettor and Easy Start recoil system that requires 25% less pulling force.
The Makita has two mass vibration dampening system which basically means it can be used for longer periods of time as it doesn't hurt your hands.
To adjust or remove the chain and cutting bar there are 2 nuts for added security with side mounted adjustment which can be screwed for easy use. The chain is always lubricated as the oil pump switches off when the chain saw isn't being used. The machine takes petrol.
The full pack comes as:
1 x Easy Start 2-Stroke Chainsaw,
1 x Universal wrench,
1 x Bar,
1 x Chain,
1 x Chain cover,
1 x Torx wrench,
1 x Tool kit,
1 x Hex wrench,
1 x Carburettor screwdriver
I find this chain saw easy to use, light weigh, reasonable to buy and fill with petrol and best of all its women friendly.
I'm really impressed with this chainsaw. It has a very efficient motor which makes it very powerful. I've owned it for about 2 years now and its been very reliable. It has a very good quality cable which is also very long. I've cut some very large diameter wood with it and it slices through it. It uses quite a bit of oil but I'd rather have everything well lubricated so I don't consider this to be a problem.I have had petrol chainsaws for many years (STIHL) and have always resisted the electric machine thinking (incorrectly) that they would never have the power to get the job done. I bought a Black & Decker and thought my fears were realised, that saw was a pile of rubbish. But then I had the chance to use this Makita saw that a friend was using to log some big trees in his garden. At first I scoffed at him for even attempting the job with this saw but I was the one left with the egg on my face. This saw felled and logged four trees (with a average trunk diameter of 13 inches) in one day with the greatest of ease. Just as easily as my STIHL saw. And what was amazing was the strain free operation. This saw is lighter, more maneuverable, quieter and much safer than my petrol saws. The only difference is the portability, the STIHL can go anywhere, whereas you are limited to the length of your extension.Overall, an excellent investment.
