I've seen a lot of advertisements lately (mostly in the press) for a 2.2kW
16"/18" electric chainsaw with tool-free SDS chain adjustment.
The chainsaw is sold under the brand names of Eckman and Kiam, and probably
quite a few others. At the moment it is priced at £76 - £79, which is £90
off what was probably an unrealistic retail price.
They look not unlike the Florabest range of garden tools that Lidl often
This link shows the chainsaw priced at £169.95, but it's on offer in today's
Daily Express at £79.95 with free postage.
This is the Kiam Sherwood version.
Some adverts claim the chainsaw has an 18" bar, others say 16". I believe
the actual useable bar length is 16", but the overall bar length is 18",
with 2" inside the machine casing.
Has anyone had any experience (good or bad) of these chainsaws?
