Good for the price

"I have had this saw for over a year now. I don't use it much but it's very useful when I need it.
It started easily and worked well for a the first few uses then the engine started to bog/cut as soon as you tried to rev it (unless you wedged the choke out). Read up about tuning Walbro carbs and a tiny tweak of the ' L' low needle had it working better than ever. Starts, idles and revs perfectly and cuts well. Obviously not Stihl quality but fine for my firewood cutting use.
I would recommend it to friends. It was delivered quickly to my work address and free delivery.

hitachi chainsaw

"Bought this little saw to use when I am out and about gathering firewood for the stove on my canal boat……find it easy to start .
The bevel gear on the chain adjuster was found to be missing a tooth but hitachi replaced it next day delivery free of charge ( a manufacturing fault apparently), the clutch tends to start making a strange noise after it has done a lot of cutting and got hot….but despite these 2 things I am very happy with it……better for light duty than heavy duty….hope the clutch lasts out.
Have cut down a 12" diam tree with no problem.
Just keep on top of the maintenance and keep the chain sharp :-).

One tree wonder

By dannyboy759

"Bought this saw today to do some light tree felling but after an hour or so the chain was that blunt that it doesnt cut and I had to go back to a amnual saw.
Looking through screwfix im not sure if they do a spare chain or not but even if they do the saw should last longer than a few hours cutting small shrubs and trees.
Buy cheap buy twice! keep telling myself this but everytime I fall foul.

"I use it perhaps once a month to cut small trees and fire wood. Very good in all respects except reliability. Have had it 13 months, once returned to service because of clutch failure, now the thread holding the air intake to the engine has stripped. Both have or will be repaired under guarantee.
Repair service is excellent, no quibbles but what will I do when the guarantee runs out?"

"After an hour of hard work it started to cut out, and needed constant restarting. Took back to screw fix who refunded with no fuss."

What a load of rubbish

"I have had 2 of these chain saws. The first one would cut out as soon as I started to rev the saw and the replacement was difficult to start and the oil pump failed. Seriously think about another option"

Hitachi chainsaw
6 Feb 2013
By Winterton
, North ayrshire
"Bought nov 11, failed July 12, replaced Oct 12, failed Feb 13. Used for cross cutting fire wood, not really man enough for the job, chain sharpening incredibly critical, or it cuts round curves. Faults noted, failed brake, failed clutch, failed oil pump, misfiring, finally no spark, no run or start at all. Not good value at all."
