The best cheap chainsaws for home and garden

Now we have a saw that clearly resembles something ... Hmm, but its design clearly has a lot in common with a very decent "donor" - Komatsu-Zenoah G3700, and this is a good recommendation. How successful was the clone in practice?

The Oregon inscription proudly painted on the tire is good news - it promises the reliability of the saw unit, although the protective plastic on the tire still peels off quickly enough. The tire itself has a length of 35 cm, which is quite enough in domestic use. The chain has the most common pitch - 3/8 inches, there will be no problem finding a replacement.

The motor of the chainsaw is a small two-tactic with a volume that is a little less than 40 cubes. On the one hand, this gives little fuel consumption, on the other hand, the saw is clearly not for heavy work, for this 1.6 horsepower is clearly not enough. The gas tank is also small - 300 ml.

Although the handle of the chainsaw is made of fairly cheap and hard plastic, the vibration level on it is acceptable, and given that the saw is not intended for professional use, it will not tire in its average statistical mode of operation. There are no complaints about the operation of the chain brake.

Alas, the Chinese would not be themselves, do not need a tool in a little fine-tuning after purchase. In this case, we are talking about the carburetor - on many saws, it should immediately be readjusted. The casing was not very well made - sawdust quickly stuffed under it, interfering with the brakes and slowing down the chain itself. However, any tool after work is worth cleaning.

The best household chainsaws

The service life of such devices assumes that they will rarely be used - a maximum of an hour per day. They are not designed for cutting thick tree trunks, respectively, they have small power (up to 2 kW), engine size (about 40 cm ³) and weight. There are other external differences - the household saw is equipped with a 30-40 cm long tire, and safety chains are visible on the chain, which, although limiting the speed of work, reduce the return on the tool, minimizing the possible risks of using the tool.

This is the best chainsaw, if the main task of the tool is to "be in the wings" for cases when for economic needs it is necessary to cut small amounts of firewood from time to time, or to cut trees.




Makita EA 3202 S 40 B

Household saw with Easy-Start quick start system, vibration damping system and automatic lubrication system for important components.

- Cons Makita EA 3202 S 40 B

  1. Native gasoline hoses can jump off - it is treated by replacement.

  3. Non-standard chain installation - requires some skill.
  4. Inconvenient to cut the end - it is difficult to make an accurate cut.
  5. It is necessary to get used to the system of protection against the return stroke - with unaccustomed saw it can stall without the occurrence of an emergency situation.
  6. The drive sprocket is welded to the clutch drum - if you need to replace it, this increases the cost of repair.

A well-made tool for domestic tasks - cutting building materials and felling thin (up to 20-30 cm in diameter) trees. The low weight makes the saw more comfortable for work requiring mobility, for example, pruning.

Partner P340S

Under this brand, China produces Husqvarna chainsaws - one of the recognized leaders in the industry. The household tool is equipped with automatic chain lubrication, locking system for the return stroke and anti-vibration springs.

  3. Poor vibration protection. In addition to the impact on the hands, it affects the bolted connections of the handles - they have to be tightened periodically.
  4. The chain that comes in the kit, it is desirable to immediately replace.
  5. Often clogged air filter.
  6. In the complete set only a chain and a key for its tension.
  7. It is necessary to revise the oil supply hose to the chain - it can be transferred during assembly.

The manufacturer is positioned solely as a household tool for short work on the farm. Owners note that with proper use, the saw is able to serve for many years without any complaints.

Hitachi CS 33 EB

The “trick” of the model is the New Pure Fire system for reducing the force and amount of exhaust, which in addition reduces fuel consumption.

+ Pros Hitachi CS 33 EB

  1. The system is easy to start the engine - after running start up with the first or second throttle jerk.
  2. The light weight of 4.2 kg makes it comfortable to work even in uncomfortable places.

  5. The use of engine exhaust reduction technology is a contribution to the preservation of the environment and an additional reduction in vibration.
  6. The quality of components - many owners of this saw say that it has been working for them for 5-8 years.
  7. Balanced center of gravity.

- Cons Hitachi CS 33 EB

  1. The lack of Russian-language instructions - you need to look separately or understand yourself.
  2. If it heats up and stalls, then until it cools, it will not start.
  3. The air filter can pass fine dust into the carburetor. For treatment, it is necessary to additionally lubricate the gap between its halves.
  4. There is no manual fuel pumping - the airlock is removed for a long time at the very first start - in some cases it is necessary to turn the starter for 20-30 minutes.
  5. The chain is running around - you need to immediately purchase a worker.
  6. Special attention should be paid to the tension mechanism. Before adjustment, be sure to release the tire attachment - otherwise there is a high probability of breakage.
  7. Without additional adjustment, excessive oil consumption for chain lubrication.

Despite the "household" characteristics, due to its weight and reliability, this chainsaw will suit professionals as well as an addition to more powerful models.
