    Pure copper brushed motor, strong power, fast cutting, improve efficiency.

    Aren't brushless more efficient?

    Yes I am dissecting a generic cheap product. Yes I realise it doesn't matter. Yes I need to get out more….¬¬

    •  

      I think brushless rely on electronics which might be more failure-prone than motor brushes, despite brush wear.

    •  

      I'm interested in this but don't have any battery packs. Can anybody direct me to the cheapest battery solution from Bunnings? Genuine Makita battery pack or Ozito/XU1 battery pack with adaptor etc?

      There are heaps of mini chainsaws on eBay that come with batteries but the batteries are an unknown quantity. Can anybody recommend any of these eBay ones that come with a reasonable quality battery pack?

    What type of battery .. and cost ??

      genuine Makita batteries burn out in these

      I find that hard to believe. How? Batteries have their own built-in smarts for over-current, over-heat etc.
      You cannot blame the skin if they fail.

      Nothing fake here. I'd get one except my Makita batteries are the wrong sort.

          Yes you can.
          There's nothing evil and magic that changes one batteries chemistry compared to others, based on brand.

    Think it's too small for a chainsaw. You'd better buy a quality lopper.

    • +2 votes

      I own one (well, purchased for my mum).

      The biggest difference between this, and a lopper (which she owned), is that this can cut something twice the size of it's bar, by doing a cut down each side.
      A lopper is kind of out of luck, if it's too big to fit in the jaws.

      There are a lot of naysayers around these things, but they're actually pretty darn surprising. I was sceptical too, but it's really very usable.

    Got one last time. It's awesome.

    •  

      What do you use it for? It's tiny

      •  

        Normally for branches and bushes. Easier than using a big one.

        8 inches across (a cut from both sides) is actually QUITE a big piece of firewood.

        My mother uses one because various pains stop her using an axe or a hand-saw, and anything like a jigsaw 'jolts her around' when\if the blade grabs.

          How is the chain lubed. Is there a chain bar oil Reservoir.

          •  

            @mckayver: Nope, its a sacrifical bar, i think its got a high moly content.

            I gave my mother a spritz bottle of AN rated oil.

            Its a $25 tool, i assume its not meant to last much more than a year or two of casual use.

            And for that price, im OK with that.

              @MasterScythe: Could I use silicone grease? I do have bar oil but would I just pour it over?

              • +1 vote

                @Juice08: I have an electric chainsaw and the bar oil Reservoir grommet thingy doesn't work properly any more so I just use a small paint brush to apply bar oil on the chain when it gets a little dry. This works perfectly fine. I put newspaper on top of a garbage bag when I apply the oil to catch the drips from my paving.

    Saw a guy returning a faulty chainsaw at Bunnings last week. Turns out it was just the chain brake on. Not sure if people like that should be allowed to own them.

    Was often a worry selling them when I worked Power Garden.

      Got one, last time there was a sale for them for $30 delivered. It's not to bad for low impact jobs with a good set of 1/2" socket set. But when a nut is on tight and needs some high end initial torque to loosen it, than you need a proper impact driver.

    These are way better than any loper or hedge trimmer.. A similar electric pruner is way better than the expensive pass on to grand kids pruner … Will not be long before the major brands start making them.. Battery, motor,charger everything is sus but the concept is great .. I do not chop palm trees with mine which I got off banggood with 2 batteries but tell you what not having the mrs pester you because she can do the hedge trimming or chop small branches given the weight and simplicity is priceless.. I was so impressed that I bought a pruner which are more expensive and boy does that thing work well !! Mind you my comments do not relate to this specific product. Also as a side note my Wrox batteries fit on these as well at least the pruner I bought

      My mother who is getting older uses it to cut firewood, trim trees, and lop overhanging branches.
      Jigsaw style cutters 'jolt her' around, and there's no lopper that can do an 8" log, like this can, by going in for 2 cuts (one each side).

      There are a lot of people who camp, or live on small bits of land, where 8" is probably the biggest branch they'll need to deal with.

      •  

        I'd buy one of these if I didn't have a Dewalt 18v chainsaw (which is a bit of a "toy" also)… The Dewalt has a has a 30cm/12" bar but 6" or more is kinda hard work, sensible cutting is like 4" or less.. (I mainly use it for pruning gums and removing odd windfall off tracks)

        This knock-off makita is probably practical for 2", or 3" at most, sure you could hack away at 8" and get through from each side but it's really not practical, and you wouldn't buy something like this with 8" in mind… (plunging through 8" would dull the chain in no time also)

        •  

          How much was the Dewalt ?

          •  

            @shaidas: $300 with a 4AH battery+charger
            https://www.ozbargain.com.au/product/dewalt-dcm565m1-xe

            They're a bit of a toy compared to a petrol chainsaw, but hourses for courses, it has a place in my chainsaw collection, convenient for small stuff, pruning, one handed work, and such… …

                @shaidas: Dont tempt me, I'm trying my hardest not to get one, I have a bit of a chainsaw fetish and I use them a LOT, lol, I'm confident I'd get use out of one of these little Makita knockoffs …

                I have Dewalt gear so I'd have to blow a few bucks on a battery adapter also… (not a big deal because I think I'll grab a knock-off makita impact wrench also):

                  @FLICKIT: Nah .. in that case buy a similar one with the batteries included .. I am sure you will change your mind but I am not a professional bud .. these things cut well and that is all I know .. They are cheap cheerful work well but may not last ..but damn do they work well

          True, you wouldnt buy it with 8" in mind, but it does do it.

          More importantly, it laughs at the 4" of its full bar, ive often, very often, used it to cut the full bar length. The motor is actually powerful enough for once.

          My mother uses it most for bamboo and gumtree branches.

    •  

      For trimming hedges, for chopping firewood, for cutting anything small that does not need straight cuts ..convenience.. why use a washing machine or a blender ?

  •  

    the only fake makita tool i would recommand is the impact wrench and the blower (both like 25$ each)

    the blower works superwell on my site, actually as good as the real one for how much it is. the wrench tho, dying, but for home use, it is planty.

  •  

    Where is this fake Makita coming from ? This thing uses a battery bay that can accommodate a Makita battery so it is a fake Makita battery holder.. does Makita have anything equivalent as in the same chain size ? Till the major brands come out with something similar this mini me chain saw is the bees knees and I know because I own one for about 5 months now.. Just to be clear not this particular one.. but I am guessing all of these things are same.. And once Makita or Bosch comes out with these then which one will be fake ?

      I love mine also.

      The fake makita product thing is a dig at a bunch of people last time this was posted; who tried to imply makita owned blue power tools.

      Aka "its makita colour, so its knocking it off" .

      If I paint a ferrari milano red, its not magically a knockoff civic.

    Does anyone have a recommended battery link for when this arrives?

  •  

    Just got it today, it's not Makita brand everyone. It works on Makita battery.

    I rate it 6/10 as its not powerful. However, its good for twigs as it struggled a bit.

    •  

      Quite clearly it has been stated that it's not makita manufactured but is compatible with their batteries. If you didn't pick that up you need to brush up on your reading and comprehension skills.

      I disagree with the statement that its not powerful too, maybe we had different expectations. I had no problem going through 3" thick gum tree branches and was surprised at how well it did.

      •  

        Mr Crap, appreciate your valuable comments in regards my comprehension skills. I missed reading it's not Makita brand. You might want to work on your name.

        What battery power you using or that won't make a difference?

  •  

    Would something like this be good as a battery kit?
