“Much better saws available”

Written on: 17/06/2012 by tk48states (1 review written)

I have 6 gas chainsaws, 2 are Homelites, the old XL series Homelites were good saws, replaced about 10 yrs ago w. new models. The 35 cc 14'bar is still a pretty good saw, has no chainbrake, use it around my farm for trimming but the Timberman 45 cc 18" bar is prone to breakdowns and hard to use, handle feels loose because of rubber anti-vibration mountings, chain brake has tendency to snap on while in use, oil pump on mine broke so must manually oil with a can, engine seems OK but I'd recommend spending the extra money for a Husky or a Stihl.

Follow up to my review: ordered an oil pump kit to repair oiler, big job u have to split the case and remove the engine, immediately saw the problem, oiler runs off the cranklshaft via a plastic gear and it was stripped, imagine this will happen anytime saw is started in cold weather with thick oil, needs a redesigned fix.
