I bought this chainsaw back in mid-January. My previously trusty Husqvarna had become untrustworthy, and I needed a back-up.
When I bought it, the salesman assured me that in a few years time, it will become the one by which all other saws are compared. Not only was it reasonably priced, but the factory in China that makes them (for a German Co) is geared up to open the floodgates, and conquer the world..
It's a SCHEPPACH CSH46, and cost me a staggering €89.90 (£76.51p).
So what do you think of it Cro?
Well, for the money it's quite an amazing bit of kit. Starting it is a tad stiffer than the Husqvarna, but it fires-up after just three pulls. It really needs to be started whilst on the ground; secured by your foot.
Otherwise it does leak a tiny bit of chain oil, but I think this can be regulated from somewhere within.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely. For the price of some shrapnel you'd find down the back of your sofa, you have what seems to be a very reliable machine. I might even buy another one to keep up at the barn. It sounds good too!
Cheap doesn't always equate with 'rubbish'.... Score: 9½/10
