I need a new chainsaw. Nothing huge, probably with a bar 350mm or so, to be used only occasionally on fallen trees. Given how hard it is to hire one without the formal qualifications, I'll need to buy one, probably secndhand and with a budget of £150. Can I expect to get anything decent for that money, or do I need to set aside a little more?
If getting off ebay, is there anything to watch out for? I'm assuming I'll get to see the thing before buying so can check that it runs ok.
I'm guessing opinion will be fairly evenly divided between Stihl and Husky - but is there a clear winner in the cheapo secondhand chainsaw market?
