Ran it for about 3 minutes. Feels loose and cheap. Insert joke here. However, I bought it to loan out or let apprentices learn. I own quality, but bought this to die a slow death in the hands of amateurs who ask to use my gear. Seems like it will fit the bill. Ask me next summer how it went. Lol

nice and easy to fit together does just what i wanted from a small saw

great saw for the price , i would say the screw that makes the chain tight could be better as it keeps slipping and cant always make the chain go tight , also the tool strop ring could do with being a bit bigger to fit tool strop.
apart from that good little saw

Excellent delivery and service from Timberpro.
I've done 5 days work with the saw before reviewing it. I have previous experience with other premium brand saws (at premium prices).
The saw was easy to assemble, and comes with 2 x chains for the 10" bar. Started second pull and runs well.
The 25:1 fuel mixture produces a bit of a smokey exhaust (my Stihl saw runs on 40:1) and I may push this to 30:1 in the future.
The tether/lanyard attachment point could be a weak point as it is a self tapping screw into a protruding bit of plastic case. It has held up fine so far, but I've added a bit of "back up" cord, just in case.
In use the On/Off switch is a little too easy to catch with a finger/thumb, especially when disengaging the chain brake, thus stopping the engine. This happens less frequently once you have done it a few times and become more aware of the issue.
The engine cuts out sometimes once the fuel tank gets to around a third full, it's just worth being aware of, and topping up fuel once it's about half full.
The chin has stretched on first week's use, but not significantly more than with a premium brand chain. The chain seems to hold it,s edge well, I haven't needed to sharpen it yet, so do not know how well it will sharpen and remain sharp.
The saw can struggle a little for power when pushed to, and beyond it's limit when cutting 10" < branches, but this is to be expected.
Overall, the saw performs well, it's a good starter ( 2 or 3 pulls from cold, 1 pull when warmed up) and has enough power. It's light enough and easy to use in all orientations. Good reliability in use with lots of stop/starts.
The saw is excellent value for money.

I bought one of these about a year ago and I use it most days at work, ( tree surgeon) everyone laughed at me when I produced this, with there stils and huskys but everything these more costly saws can do my timberpro can do too.
I've just bought one for the boss who said get me one pls and he's over the moon with it.
It performs very well and cuts down trees let alone branches. Only one concern is the chain tightner is plastic not metal but all of my saws have them and they've been fine.

This little saw is pretty nice. I was surprised by how much I actually liked it. Granted I have only used it for a few hours for 1 day, but it will keep up just fine. Shipping was absolutely mind blowingly fast.
There are only 3 critiques I have:
1. The brake spring was wayyy too tight, but from reading previous reviews I already knew that before purchasing. I might consider snipping one loop off the spring to adjust the brake to the appropriate tension.
2. The mount for the bar needs to be about 1mm "lower". This is either a design flaw or a machining flaw. As it is, the chain comes off the bar at a slight angle towards the sprocket. This hasn't been an issue yet, but if I were to ever change and use a slightly thicker bar, this would be a big issue.
3. I like the top handle of this saw, it is great to "one hand" it, but I would like to see a back handled option on this too!
All in all, this is a cool saw for the money and I would recommend it to anyone wanting an economical tiny limbing/climbing saw.

I love this saw, what an inexpensive solution, when so many top handle saws are so expensive. I pulled it out of the box, installed bar and chain (was not as hard as other reviews led to believe). Set tension, filled with oil, filled with fuel. Pushed primer ball 5x, two pulls with choke all the way out, pulled trigger once to set choke back in, the next pull we were off and running. It took a few minutes for the oil to spit out the end of the bar but it got there eventually. I would give this awesome saw 5 stars, however the down fall are, chain break is tough and feels flimsy, I have to reach closer to the attachment point ( which puts knuckles directly over the chain) to try and pull it where it was intended feels like the plastic is going to snap. Issue #2 is the lanyard attachment point. It looks good and solid until you pull off the cover and see it is only held to the saw with one short self tapping screw in a small piece of protruding plastic molded from the main body of the saw. Other then these easily remedied problems the saw performs well for my needs, I am no pro nor do I do this for a full time living, but I would recommend this saw to anyone looking for this style.
