q: Hi I am looking for a light weight chain saw for pruning one that can be held with one hand? cheers

q: Hi, do you need to mix the oil/fuel manually or does the oil dispenser do this ie you just add fuel?
a: You'll need to pre-mix the fuel, it comes with a handy measuring cannister for this. The oil fill you might have noticed is for the automatic bar-oiler.

I bought this for a bit of climbing and pruning which it worked very well for. Top handle and shoulder strap made it easy to climb and cut with. I have ended up cutting some fairly thick stuff that the saw had no problems with. This is only the second saw I've used. Last one was a liffle jonserd that was great.

Meets my needs and exceeded my expectations. I use it primarily for trimming posts, small tree branches and shrubbery. It is light and easy to maneuver. Use it to it's limitations will ensure it will last me awhile.

Bought this little beauty for around the house tree trimming etc. After a few cuts I found myself really putting it through it paces. She really surprised me and stood up to the bigger jobs. Full bar depth cutting of dry wood no problems. Starts easy and super economical both on purchase and running. Highly recommended.

Awesome little chainsaw

I bought this just to do some tidying up around home and to save me getting my big chainsaw out for small jobs. It took a little bit of fine tuning of the carb to get it going 100% but I am seriously impressed with the throttle response and overall power of this product

Small "Flash" chainsaw

Like others I bought this to do some branch trimming that I would otherwise have had to do by struggling with a handsaw or paying an aboriculturalist to do. The saw hasn't had much work yet but cuts well and is nice an light making it easy to handle. It does however have a fair amount of vibration it. Given its low price it is a good deal.

Perfect climbing saw.

Light and easy to use, wife bought for me to do couple odd jobs. It has worked very hard so far. Will get another one after it dies. Shoulder strap needs reconfiguring before use.

Drew Otago

good piece of gear

over 3 years ago


Bought this saw to help take down an overgrown douglas fir. I figured if it died after that then its stil cheaper than getting professionals in. Saw was perfect for climbing and lopping branches, made light work of the tree. Quite powerful for a 25cc saw and started first pop every time. Tree was down and saw still going fine so lopped up the tree into firewood, took about 5 tanks of fuel and I was working the little thing pretty hard but it took it in its stride. Then set it to work on clearing scrub on the property and its still going strong with no signs of anything going wrong at all.

Good cheap chainsaw

over 3 years ago


I use this saw for pruning and limbing up tree in our large garden. It is well priced, light, and handy. Starts well. Minor design matters are. The chain oil adjuster is hard to find (instructions deficient on this). Allen key to remove front cover is, in my opinion, a design flaw.

This little chainsaw is great it has worked very hard in the month we have had it. Is light and easy to handle. Only problem we've found is when the chain comes off it is quite fiddle to get at.

Flash chainsaw review

over 3 years ago


Haven't done enough work with it to really know how this will pan out in the long run. Putting the bar and chain on is more fiddly than other saws I've used. Starts ok so far and has sufficient power for the bar supplied. Has the appearance of being made to a price but that is what you would expect.

Gutsy small Chainsaw

over 4 years ago


I bought the saw about a month ago and have used it several times. Starts easily and runs well. It's main benefit is its light weight compared with the power. I have 4 other larger Chainsaws and this one is excellent for its purpose.

Was put to work clearing a fence line cutting totara, macrocarpa & pine branches, with the extra win of gathering firewood as we went. Light enough not to be cumbersome.
