PLease do NOT buy this bizarre exeriment of a chainsaw.
For a company dealing in aluminium castings [Ryobi] they
must have got drunk and made this as a cruel cruel joke.
The spindle on which the pullstring turns is made OUT OF PLASTIC.
The chain may as well be made out of plastic also.
If you have been given one one these [God forbid] the very best thing
to do is to take it outside and smash it up with a lump hammer before you even start. That way, you can save yourself the trouble and heartache of taking it apart and finding it is the equivalent of a cheap market fake.
Then, go and buy a real chainsaw from Stihl or equivalent.
I will NEVER buy Ryobi equipment again.
