Hey,

I need a cheap chainsaw for cleaning some parts of the garden.

I am not keen on an electric one as I might take it away with me sometimes, (or use it during loadshedding), Game has one for about R1300.00, (https://www.game.co.za/game-za/en/A.../Chainsaws-&-Blowers/CHAINSAW-45CC/p/00794821)

It is 45cc and seems to be what I am looking for.

It is a Stramm, and I never heard of that brand ... can anybody comment if it is good/bad/ok.
Again, I am not looking for professional grade stuff, just to cut a couple of branches a year at most, not clear out a council playground.

Thanks

Rather get Ryobi or a similar make. Stramm = Fragram afaik. Not designed to last.

Not chainsaw but still garden tools.
I bought Ryobi petrol lawn mower and weed eater through Mica Silver Lakes and got excellent service from them. Had both serviced and no issues what so ever.

Sure - better yet you get them on long poles for trimming branches and they're awesome.

Why not add a little more and get a Stihl? I got one with I think a 300mm blade that can vut up to 600mm diameter trees for about R1700.

Spares, blades, filters, oild whatever all available.

Before this I had a Wolf Chainsaw that was bigger and couldn't find a new blade anywhere

Wonder if the OP did take the chainsaw 'away' with him, and who never returned from the trip?

Well ... 6 months ago, when I asked the question, yes, I took one away with me. Everybody returned safe and sound.
