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
I googled it and it is not available here. Wish we could find that sort of money "down the back of the sofa".ReplyDelete
You need a more interesting sofa.Delete
A toy any man would desire! Im not translating your post for my man. He has enough toysReplyDelete
But these are lots of fun!Delete
I'm quite relieved that Paul doesn't have a chainsaw to play with anymore. Looks like you've got a good one there though.ReplyDelete
It's a goodun; I love playing with it.Delete
Oh dear. Whenever my hubby gets out the chainsaw I am waiting nervously with a box of elastoplast and a sewing kit!ReplyDelete
Superglue is handy too.Delete
Cheap perhaps by chainsaw standards, but €90 is not exactly small change. China is on a high now with good value for money for products, but other countries preceded them and no doubt other cheap labour countries will get ahead of China......perhaps not in our lifetimes though.ReplyDelete
I saw a really tacky cheap Rabbit pen this morning which was priced at €90; it made the chainsaw look like a free gift!Delete
I bought a petrol strimmer that the Erics designed and was manufactured in China. Cheap and cheerful and does the job.ReplyDelete
We were looking at Lithium battery operated strimmers this morning. Do you know if they're any good?Delete
I have read about them but never used one. Think they have two hours operating time from a fully charged battery. Suppose it depends how long the grass or weeds are? I like petrol strimmers because they have the necessary umpth and you know how much fuel you have.Delete
I've got quite a few things of that kind to worry my wife and kids, but I'd never dare use one of those.ReplyDelete
They're not as nasty as they look; once you get used to them. Here it's a necessity!Delete
My husband, son and SILs would love that toy. The noise that those give out is music to their ears.ReplyDelete
This one does sound very nice; much better than the Husqvarna.Delete
I'm glad it's quiet. Noise pollution is a growing problem in gardens. I can't hear the birdsong for the rivaling machines some days. Worst are those leaf blowers that sound like a jet revving up. Whatever happened to gentle sounds of hedge clippers, rakes, and noiseless lawnmowers.ReplyDelete
The worst noise here is young hooligan trainee fighter pilots. They come up from Toulouse, wizz around our chimney pots, then return home to annoy us another day.Delete
This is one piece of equipment I shall never have to buy, thank goodness.ReplyDelete
I would have been amazed had you said anything else!!!Delete
Only time and use will tell if it's going to continue to perform as it is now. My husband has repaired chain saws for years, but finds that it's rare now to be able to find parts, or even to repair the built-in obsolescense. Good luck, and may you use it in good health for years to come!!ReplyDelete
Frankly, at just over £75, as long as it lasts a couple of years it will have paid for itself. However, I'm hoping it will last much longer. My other one (the Husqvarna) has lasted for about 12 years so far, and is still going strong. The only problem is that its tick-over needs re-setting quite often.Delete
