Looks like a great chainsaw for the money. Noosa is still showing stock, Check your local may still be a few left.
Boating, camping, fishing…. And chainsawing?
For camping to chop wood for camp fire.
Boating, camping, fishing…. And hiding bodies in the bush…
Is that you Ivan?
I am dying laughing at this for some reason
You’ve never filleted a fish with a chainsaw?
As mick dundee says “Barramundi’s a bloody big fish!”
$60 at Osborne Park store. I am just back from the store VIP night event. Some other stuff is extra 80% off the discounted price.
extra 80% off the discounted price?
not for the chainsaw. something like UGG and rain jacket for $5 and more
Jacket $25 for me. Is there a code?
@Kanari: it is in store price.
Just to be picky, they’re generic uggs, not UGGs
Just went back to the store and bought one even I don’t need one
The Economy thanks you.
How did you find out about the VIP sale?
Dang. Not a single BCF close by with one.
$15 shipping is reasonable
As recommended by Ash Williams?
This is my boomstick!
I don’t even need a chainsaw but for $75 how could I not buy one?
The OzB way
Imagine driving down a country road one dark and stormy night. You stop as a tree has fallen over the road, blocking your path. You go to the boot of your car and whip out your Stanley chainsaw…
Tbh, I don’t think I can even change a car tyre. I actually have no idea what I will use my chainsaw for, but bargain!
I’m so retarded my step father took the jack out of my car and told me to just call NRMA 🙁
Time to put your big pants on
Heh. When my Dad starting teaching my how to drive one of the first things he did was make sure I knew how to change a tyre. Old skool stuff, for sure, but it’s surprising how many times I’ve had to do it. It’d be great if it was something they taught as part of driver education.
Can buy it because its cheap and put it in the shed next to the Fiskars axe I bought that was also cheap on OzBargain. Even if I dont have a single tree in my yard a bargain is a bargain 😁
Blows my mind you can get something with an internal combustion engine for 75$. Wonder if it can make a go cart or powered scooter!
Well before the drone took over the world of flying enthusiasts, most would have ripped out the IC engine to put in their flying aero models. Although, probably would need to be a big enough model to overcome the weight of the engine itself.
Just bought one. That’s livin’ OP
Yep, bought now ask questions later lol… Lucky, as it was only available at my closest store and none other nearby, and then checking back it’s no longer in stock at the local store I selected c&c at =D
Now that I’ve had a chance to do some quick homework, the part number (model) is SXPG23701 and it seems that this model is not really stocked at many other places, I’m guessing it’s old obsolete hence the BCF clearance?
The equivalent 37cc 2-stroke chainsaws in other brands are about $169-$229 (from Bunnings Homelite, Ryobi, Hyundai) – Very quick search.
Coming from an Ozito PXC 18V Pole Pruner, I dare say I won’t be disappointed in this $75 purchase. The Ozito one surprisingly did me very well with backyard jobs!
Fingers crossed this doesn’t get cancelled though!
Thanks for sharing your research. My only experience with chainsaw is as a volunteer with SES. I am now seeing units adopting battery powered saws. They are so much more convenient, and quieter too. Less mess in trying to fuel up and fill the bar oil in the middle of the night.
Didn’t need it. Bought it.
I can guarantee this will be a very frustrating user experience.
Don’t be fooled by the Stanley name. This is rebranded Chinese junk.
Parts will be next to impossible to source except for the bar, chain and spark plug.
If you did buy one please use all the safety gear. At a minimum that is hearing and face protection. These things are dangerous. If you have no idea what you are doing pay a pro to do it. No jokes – this think could change or end your life in seconds.
Source: I cut 20m3 of hardwood every autumn. I have used cheap sh!t like this and it’s false economy. I recommend mid range husqvarna or stihl.
If I could double vote this comment I would.
That’s my first thought with things like this. I’m amazed people buy Chinese engines for pumps etc. I’d rather find a secondhand B&S or Honda. One like this soon becomes landfill because you can’t find a simple $5 primer bulb. It’s really annoying too because I need one. At this price I probably could have resold it for $50 after using it for a week.
I wish people would demand quality, refuse to buy this garbage. They buy junk because it’s cheap, think they’re getting a bargain. A year later it doesn’t start because they didn’t know to drain the fuel before storing. Repair is going to cost more than a new one, so it goes to landfill. Meanwhile decent brands have to charge like wounded bulls due to fewer sales. They go out of business or have to switch to Chinese junk too.
Anyway would your recommendations remain the same for secondhand ones? I can repair most things, know how to make my own gaskets, service lawnmowers, etc but I haven’t touched a chainsaw for over 20 years. If you’re not sure, that’s ok. I need to be sure I get something parts are still available for. (If you know.)
My neighbour restored a big ass stihl (can’t recall model number) that was around 15 years old. He was able to source new parts. It runs like a champ and I had the privilege of putting the 22″ bar through a dead fallen yellow box. Cut through with ease but at around 8kg was too heavy for my use.
066 or 088 by the sounds of it, beast of a saw either one.
None of them are actually ever going to use it.
20m3 every year?
Pretty sure that would last us near on 10 years
Good for protection against home invasion, all you need to do is turn it out and intruders will turn around and run away.
Good luck turning it on. Just hope the intruders give you 30 minutes notice and come with some spare knuckle skin.
Or go one better and fire up a chainsaw app on your phone when they break in
$67.50 with suncorp rewards 10% gift card
I can not speak to the quality of this product, I will however, guarantee my housemate will sh1t his pants the morning after this arrives!!
You also need to get a leatherface mask to complete the effect
BCF also stock balaclavas, and gumboots for the cleanup.
A a backpack and live near a forest
@Mosher: Now to decide between a Jason mask or Hawaiian shirt? hmmm…. Both!
Great for taking to the office
I do a lot of chainsawing. After a while, this thing will become a bitch to start and it will be hard to maintain.
If you want hassle free cutting, get a 36V Stihl – the lightsabre of chainsaws.
And how much is that Stihl?
Many times more than the Stanley, but as I learnt as an apprentice electrician – always buy the best tools you can afford.
Buy once, cry once – I love a bargain but cheap tools are a false economy for sure.
Sure. There is also a balance between usage and budget. Maybe for professional arborist, you need the best chainsaw, but for DIY occasional use you have to consider if it is worth spending that money.
@edfoo: For occasional use, just hire one.
@R4: That’s definitely another option too.
Saw this chainsaw this evening in store though I don’t need a chainsaw and went back home saw this deal and then I went back to the store and bought one. Now I have to find out where and how to use it. 🙂
You can come down to my place and chop of some trees. Have shit load i wanna get rid off. I’ll pay you $75.
Bought one for the apartment, thanks OP.
So many candidates here for the OzBargain Darwin Awards.
Yeah. They don’t consider buying it earlier until they see someone post this as a deal here. Flock of sheeps.
A mate of mine bought this recently for double the price.
He chopped about 30 yakkas and 5 big trees, ran like a dream, it tackled everything we throw at it. The big trees struggled a bit at the trunk, but for the money especially $75 it’s a no brainer
Take a look at the the ONE STAR verified reviews. Full of serious design flaws that make them effectively useless and dangerous. Don’t waste your money folks. This is not a bargain, it’s a waste of your time:
Honestly, if you don’t need this don’t buy it – using a chainsaw without knowing how to use one properly will easily mean you’ll be ozbargaining hand or limb surgery
Not to mention for small jobs you are better off using electric stuff
And now the 36V battery saws are as good as, if not better, than petrol.
If you plan on chopping trees and an amateur please go on YouTube and search for: tree cutting fails. It will make you think twice.
Me and my friend were amateurs we managed to cut 5 big trees and 30 yakkas with no issue. If you don’t have any common sense best to get professionals. If you do have common sense you’ll be fine
Thanks… that was entertaining!
Mmmm tempting as the mother in law is visiting next week!
I also need a shovel as well
I think you should have bowed out at the previous funny comment, lol.
Not cheap considering on ebay you can get a better saw for $100 with a 16 to 20 inch saw. Bought one for 99 and 3 years later still runs like a dream.
Ive used cheap and expensive chainsaws, my fav right now is 36V makita. Cheap petrol ones often have poor air filters and get ruined when cutting trees off at ground level as this kicks up dust which it sucks in. Having said that I couldnt help myself and bought one. When it fails ill reuse the bar/chain on one of my good saws.
Reading the comments from @field1985, those who got the best deal would be those who couldn’t find stock. Not voting, not because it is not a great deal. But a unsafe chainsaw in an inexperienced hand can potential cause a lot of harm.
This is 2-stroke, so that means you must mix unleaded petrol with 2-stroke oil. Not difficult but just another step and product to buy for the process of refuelling. You either mix this in a separate can or bottle, or mix it in the fuel tank and shake it.
If you don’t mix oil you will burn the engine.
2-stroke also produces more emissions and you can really smell it when operating.
Three actually. You will need bar oil to run the chain too.
@yellowfever, Wonder why would some neg you. Fixed.
$75 and it even comes with metal bumper spikes, nice. No doubt it will be poor quality but I think if someone wants a casual saw for the odd job or a camping saw then this would do the job and at 37cc for a 14″ bar it’s pretty powerful, all though for a little bit more I’d lookout for some of those occasional electric saw bargains.
Bit of a step up from my Stanley knife.
Thanks OP just bought 3. One for each kid!
Have cancelled my order…will wait for a good deal on battery saw.
Just bought couple for Personal protection..
Thanks OP my Texas Chainsaw Massacre cosplay is complete now
