    Showing as $169 at all the stores I tried.

  •  

    Maybe NSW only?

    •  

      I tested for the Ashfield NSW store and it was $89 indeed.

      •  

        Ashfield used to be my local store.

  •  

    Hey OP which store did you get from?

    Terrible reviews, but for $89 what could possibly go wrong? Even the positive reviews mention it dies a good job when cutting up.

    I was warned

    I was told never to buy Homelite, but I thought I new better, I have used it 4 times, haven't even used 3 liters of fuel, it stopped working, just stopped, then it only ran for a few seconds, now will not start at all. I will taking it back to Bunnings for a refund and getting another brand

    Trouble
    ★★★ 3 out of 5 stars. 3 months ago
    I've had great luck with this brand of chainsaw in the past but this 16" has been trouble from the start. Very difficult to start and even after emptying the engine of fuel (and removing the spark plug), it still won't start. I've used chainsaws for years and this is the first one that's disappointed.

    great saw

    This saw seems to do everything I want. We have a wood fire and a large garden with lots of tea tree, some of which are dead and need cutting up. Dies a good job on the fire wood I have collected.

    I purchased one to cut down some trees on a property my grandmother was selling. It has maybe 50 trees, not massive ones but it went through everything like butter, I'm fairly sure I paid around 90 as well, the chain did loose it's sharpness by end of the second day but you can always re-sharpen then fairly easily

    •  

      That’s amazing my Stihl 066 will only go a couple of hours until it needs a sharpen.

      •  

        Lots of different opinions on how sharp is sharp. I've seen saws spitting out smokey dust and been told the chain is fine.

      •  

        Rule of thumb is sharpen the chain each time u refuel

  •  

    I wonder if Bunnings (rest of Oz) will price beat Bunnings Ashfield NSW!!

      no they wont. i have tried.

  •  

    Does it do meat and bone well?

    •  

      I can say from personal experience that yes, it goes through bone like butter.

  •  

    I have this one which was $99 at the time:

    https://www.bunnings.com.au/homelite-35cc-30cm-2-stroke-chai...

    I used it to cut up a large tree that had fallen over in the yard. Bar length was certainly too small for what I was using it for but it powered through just fine with multiple cuts - It's quite roughed up after cutting the tree into significantly smaller pieces. There is a screw or two that has come out which holds on the panel where the pullstart cord is - it's ruined the thread on it presumably from the vibrations so I cannot screw back in. Given the price I wouldn't expect them to last too long.

    Didn't post this as I don't know if there is stock somewhere and the price is possibly different between stores, but some Echo are on clearance at Bunnings like

    chainsaw CS-352ES $87.50
    https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/199901/87047/cs-352es....

    hedge trimmer HC-1501 $139.95
    https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/199901/87048/hc-1501.j...

    blower/vacuum/shredder EC-250ES $150
    https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/199901/87049/es-250es....

    If there are still available on some stores these are quite good bargains.

    •  

      Which store did you find these?

      •  

        Sorry for late reply, they were in different stores, anyway I've seen recently the chainsaw in another store and it was $300, like I said depends on the store and they rarely price match another store on clearance items.
