Bosch Chainsaw
26 Dec 2013
By TABR

"Assembly was straight forward.
Ensure you purchase a bottle of chain oil with the saw. You get one little tube with the saw which is not enough to do any work.
Chain tightening mechanism is straight forward. I like the system. After the first few cuts I had to tighten the chain. I tightened if once more. No problems with the chain coming off.
So keep an eye on the chain oil and chain tension and the saw works very well. I was a surprised by the good performance.
I have gone through some 12" plus logs, softwood, without any problems. I have also ripped a log in half. Again not a problem for the saw.
Can't comment on the long term but working well for me for bucking up softwood logs for the wood stove.
The only issue is the window for the chain oil which is not all that big. I wiggle the saw to see what the oil level is. So features rating is 4 rather than 5, maybe a bit harsh."

"quite smooth and rips through hard wood logs fast. Better to handle than my petrol one."

DO NOT BUY THIS !!
13 Nov 2013
By STUPIDNAMES

""Buy Bosch......because they're reliable & of quality". Nope. The saw requires unnecessarily complicated assembly, and after literally two minutes of initial use, the chain became loose, and the tightening mechanism fell apart. Without doubt, the worst product Bosch have EVER produced. Buy a different make. I'm going to !!"
