    From the listing:

    "These items come directly from our manufacturers in China brand new and sealed in a box."

    I doubt that it has, as the spec sheet states, a 4 litre engine.

    Try .043

    It's a Binford 4.0...Hemi. That would be the base engine. Choose the Binford 4.0SCN and step up a Super Charged Nitros injected model and get true professional power. Yes, with the 4.0SCN and the 48' bar and carbide cutter option and you can drop small buildings with ease. Redwoods in a single pass, and 300 year old oaks can be cut into stove size fuel in an hour.

    It looks as though there is some bidding action on these saws. If anyone here buys one how about letting the list know how it works. Anyone know about part sourse for these or are they throw aways?

    I figure pretty much throw away. Of course in a lot of ways most chainsaws are in my opinion. Old Yaller, the saw in my avitar wouldn't fire the other day. My first thought when I checked and saw that it was no spark was "Damn, where ya gonna find parts for a 1991 saw?". It turned out that a piece of saw shavings had gotten between the flywheel and the ignition coil. But if it had been dead it would have been bye bye $600 spent years ago and off to shop for a saw. Thinking about it as I type I realize I paid close to a grand in today's dollars for that pup. Saws today are a great value.

    I looked up the maker of the subject saws website. The are in Zhejiang Province. I think that is in Northern Ohio. On the website they have one saw that has to have Stihl pissed. It is a great knockoff of one of Stihl's saws. Looks just like it.

    I don't doubt that the Chinese are capable of building a decent chain saw, but this doesn't look like it. What are you gonna do when it breaks?

    For fifty bucks................throw it away
    My guess is they are trying to establish a market/consumer base in this country (and Canada) and they will probably have a customer support/parts network soon after.

    Its not big enough for my second saw anyway, my next saw purchase will be bigger than the one I have now...... and probably another Jonsered.

    Hey Fellers,
    The saws are sold at cost and they make-it up on shipping. If you go to their other listings and see the cheap prices and then look at the shipping cost it all makes scense.

    Complete and utter garbage. Don't waste your money.

    You can buy all kind of Chinese made tools on Ebay. Sure, you can buy a hammer drill for $5, which sounds like a steal, but you just threw away $5 (plus shipping) because the thing won't hammer through a sheet of Wonderboard without burning up.

    7000 rpm? 25:1 oil mix??? WTF?

    1.45kW? That's not even 2HP. This saw has no business pulling an 18" bar.

    I'd pass.

    Looks like they had a Jonsered 510sp or 520sp in front of them when they were designing the thing...KD

    In looking at chainsaw reviews, this thread caught my eye.

    Looks like it might have an "automatic" oil for the chain, but remember, in the not to distant past, we had to stop and oil the chain. My biggest concern would be what other features we consider standard now this little saw might not have. Chain brake? Does it meet any safety standards? Can you get a replacement chain, bar, air filter? The cheap 12v winches flooding ebay are similar. Absolutely zero distribution for parts. This is likely to be a "dollar a minute" chainsaw.

    I'm tired of buying similar disposable Craftsman/Poulon saws. Time to upgrade, not downgrade.

    Time for my long winded reply. got some china made tools in the workshop. Some do their job quite well. others don't last. of course I have had similar experience with american made tools also. My first and only chainsaw is a poulan 14 inch. Keep expecting it to give up the ghost but it lives on. have replaced the chain once and replaced the chain and bar once. Just learned this year about grinding the spacers as well as the teeth. I figure it probly has another year in it then it's done. Might splurg this year and get husky or stihl. medium sized 40-50 cc is the plan. There are others that would satisfy me quite well.....johnesered, shindawai, but stihl and husky have service available everywhere. Little tidbit of advice my "redneck advisor" gave me a couple years ago. "Two kinds of saws. stihl and what every other dumb sumbi@#$ buys. For ladders it's werner or nothing. Cheap ladder ain't no bargain. cheap chainsaw is a drunk with a shotgun." save money where you need to and buy quality where you need to.

    Just bought the 52cc version. Horrible & dangerous.
    Ill-fitting parts; Oil and petrol leaks; Low on power; Heavy; Poorly balanced; Sparkplug tightened by a gorilla; etc...
    I'm sending it back tomorrow.
    Steer well clear.

    Just be careful not to chew on the damn thing, the paint is probably full of lead ;-)
