Want CHEAP electric chainsaw

Recommended Posts

I have to cut a few small trees and look to buy a cheap electric chainsaw from Lazada.

 

With cheap, I mean 1000 - 1500 Baht, as it will be used once and then never again.

 

I read the reviews on Lazada, and however they mostly seem positive regarding the functioning, most complain about they are delivered without a manual and not that easy to assemble.

 

So if anyone has a recommendation for one of those cheap chainsaws, please post it here.

Why a chainsaw? If the trees are small a bow saw will be enough.

Any chainsaw that is as cheap as you want will be of very low quality.

 

you can use an angle grinder attachment, longer bars are available.

or ask a local to do it for you

Thanks, that is what I'm looking for, though I see 1 review that says this.

 

Only 4 stars, as the oil reservoir continues to leak onto chain when finished use, & no protective cover for chain. Ordered cover from elsewhere, hope it fits.

 

You have similar issue?

You need to put some oil in the reservoir to lubricate the chain.  I just put a minimal amount in, & keep the chainsaw in a plastic bag when not in use.  I saw this problem with other cheap chainsaws when I was searching on Lazada.

 

If you don't have a lot of cutting, I would recommend a bow saw.  Available at any hardware store.

I have a bow saw and cut the trees for the most part already. It are plumerias that cut quite easy, but some places not easy to handle a bow saw because to narrow and bow saw get stuck.

 

Those trees are old and have lots of branches, and me lazy, hence the search for a cheap chainsaw.

a local person could do it ............ probably less than the cost of the saw ?

Agreed. Somchai would do it easily in a few hours for about 3-400 Baht.

Maybe Somchai in Nakhonowhere, but near Pattaya Somchai doesn't leave his hammock for that price

I notice that around 1700 - 1800 there are petrol driven chainsaws available, with hundreds of 5 star reviews.

 

Would a 2T chainsaw be a better choice for my job, as they make about 7500 RPM while the electric make only 400 RPM, or doesn't that matter?

For the extra money the gas powered one would be better? Unless you already have the many metres of extension cord already? 

 

But agreed if you are not a gear head and are not willing to tune the carburettor then yes go electric. Even it it means buying loads of extension cord.

Thanks I have the extension cord already, as I use it for the electric trimmer, and have outdoor electrical plugs on each wall of my house.

 

Does the RPM have anything to do with how fast it will cut?

 

The electric chainsaw Yorkshire tea linked to is quoted as 700 Watt, and however it seems to a very popular item, other chainsaws in the same price range are quoted as 2000 Watt.

 

Of course, with Lazada you never know which spec are correct as they just suck something out of their thumb, but what are your thoughts about the power.

 

Both the 700 and 2000 Watt saw are quoted at 400 Rpm.
