But some overhanging trees on my roof forced me to look around and I quickly settled on this one after reading all the 5 star reviews. All I can say is this chainsaw is AMAZING.
It is quick and easy to assemble with no tools. Other reviewers have pointed out that the diagrams in the booklet are not very clear but after a couple of minutes I had it figured out. Each section of the chain has a small arrow on it, you simply slot the chain in to the chainsaw bar with the arrows at the top facing forward (away from you). You then place the excess chain over the sprocket on the chainsaw and screw on the plastic shield to keep it all in place. The chain is then tightened by rotating the red ring in the opposite direction. I was literally up and running in less than 5 minutes.
Using it is a dream (and a lot of fun!). It feels very light and is (relatively speaking) very quiet compared to petrol ones I've heard. I used it for 2 hours right outside my son's bedroom window and he never woke up once. The saw went through branches up to 8" thick in seconds like there was nothing there. Impressive and scary at the same time!
The chain did bounce off twice but I soon realised this was down to my error and nothing to do with the design of the chainsaw.
And like most reviewers have commented, you will need to buy a litre of oil before using as the amount supplied is dismal.
I have no reservation in recommending this chainsaw 100%.
After both blew, I decided to just buy a cheap chainsaw as it couldn't be any worse. In fact this is better than both for just cutting logs for the woodburner.It has a 2 year warranty, is far cheaper and is much easier to use. Why? The body is lighter,has a boxy shape that sits better in the hand. The deadmans handle where you have to hold the on/off and lockoff switches simultaneously is a lot lighter to do when you are using the saw for a while. Also has much longer cable (the Jonsered had half a metre!)If it packs up within 2 years, I have the warranty, if after that, I am still ahead compared to the more expensive traditional chainsaw brands.
This is the second chainsaw that I have owned and it is certainly a much better tool that my previous JCB model that had a similar specification.
Although it weighs a couple of kilograms, it is nicely balanced and, as a result, feels much lighter than it actual is.
Assembly was a tad tricky, but nothing difficult - it's just you need to take a bit of care lining up everything. It is useful that no tools are needed to assemble it, nor to adjust the chain when using it (unplug from the main first!).
In terms of cutting performance, I have used it to remove a bough off a tree in the garden that was about 12 inches in diameter, and it had absolutely no trouble whatsoever on this. Turning it into logs for the fire was also very fast and easy. The real beauty was the lack of kickback which made handling it feel very safe.
As other reviewers have mentioned, it is worth ordering some more oil Bosch Chainsaw Oil - Biodegradable (1 litre) (you only get enough to just get up to the minimum mark with the supplied pack) and a spare blade Bosch 1.1mm Saw Chain for AKE 40/AKE 40-17S / AKE 40-18S Chainsaws ordered now will save you the hassle when you finally blunt the blade (much cheaper and easier that trying to do the sharpening yourself - not recommended).
All the normal caveats apply with usage of chainsaw (protective clothing, etc.) - just be sensible.
Final summary: This is yet another quality garden product from Bosch and, although it is a touch more expensive than other brands, the difference is really worth it.
A well deserved 5 stars.
LONG TERM TEST UPDATE
I felt it was worth updating this review now that I have had a chance to really use this chainsaw in many different environments.
I'm happy to report that my first impressions were right and this is still an excellent chainsaw. Easy to use, fast cutting and very little in the way of kick-back.
My previous JCB chainsaw packed up when the oiler stopped working - this one seems to be both almost immune from clogging (but do check and cleanout the hole every so often) and to check it is working (put a piece of paper on the ground in front of you, run the saw for a few seconds and you should see a very fine spray pattern of oil in the straight line on the paper).
Still highly recommended and still worth the full 5 stars.
