“Customer Service Disaster”

Written on: 17/03/2015 by lsBoyle122 (1 review written)

The Chainsaw as a tool works and does the job, however should you ever require replacement part the Black and Decker team leave much to be desired. When contacting this manufacturer you would assume you are talking to the experts and that they will find you the solution and replacement part you require. However after 3 long weeks of waiting for the correct part, Black and Decker failed miserable and provided a cable part number that did NOT offer a solution and instead allowed me to… Read Full Review

“GK1940T bad model”

Written on: 14/02/2014

It is heavy, the chain adjustment- tool free- is useless, and my local repair agent cannot fix it! He changed the tool free system for the old fashioned system but then the clutch failed. DO NOT BUY… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/03/2010

It was cheap. However the chain needs constant adjustment and the adjuster is very hard to use - and seized up after just over a year's moderate use. Luckily it has a 2 year warranty so we just sent it back to be repaired… Read Full Review

“The tool they provide with the Black and Decker...”

Written on: 12/01/2009 by CustomerXYZ (1 review written)

The tool they provide with the Black and Decker GK1640TK for tightening the screw I find is useless. You need a long screwdriver. I spend an awful lot of time trying to get the chain as tight as it should be.

I've just destroyed the guide bar after about 2 hours of use - the chain has ripped through the tip of the guide bar. But at least it's got a 2-year guarantee. It's now on its way for repair.

Buy another one, is my advice… Read Full Review

The chainsaw now needs either to be re-sharpened or I need to buy a new chain. The chains seem to be around £20....a new one of these chainsaws costs around £50- £60… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/08/2008

I own one of these Black and Decker GK1640TK Chainsaws which comes with a 40cm Bar. I really works well and I rate it on the Value for Money. The only thing bad about this chainsaw is that it certainly loves oil and so you need lots of the black stuff!… Read Full Review

“Well where do i start its all bad really. First niggle...”

Written on: 12/11/2007 by woodburningelf (1 review written)

Well where do i start its all bad really. First niggle is that you can only use it for ten minutes then you must go have a break to let it cool off otherwise the motor burns out,
Next niggle is that it is not properly balanced it hangs to one side and is uncomfortable to use.
Another niggle is the button that engages the gears must not be used when the motor is turning or gears make crunching noise like it needs a clutch.
Next niggle is the oil filler cap fell off and got lost .
Next niggle… Read Full Review
