I needed a saw to cut up a large fallen oak tree. I came across the Timberpro on line and wondered about the merits of a 20" bar chain saw for £79.99. So I sat down and read all 110 reviews, all of which were good or excellent! I looked at the cost of hiring @ £43.00 per day. If it lasts for 2 days work then it's worth it, so I bit the bullet and ordered one. It was ordered on the Friday and came on the following Monday. Reviews stated the manual was difficult to follow, but I had no problem putting it together and setting it up - only bit where there was no information was which way the dog teeth go - a look at another saw solved this. Reviews stated: pull choke out, pull starter cord 3 times, saw will fire - put choke in immediately, another 3 pulls and it will start on the 3rd pull. This is exactly what it did! Cutting the large oak was easy. The chain did need tensioning, but in my experience with a new chain this is normal. My only criticism, albeit at small one, is the saw doesn't like being used at an angle i.e. cuts out through fuel starvation. Looking into the tank the fuel supply pipe just flops around. Also it cuts out before a whole tank of fuel is used, but I simply top it up again. It is 'thirsty' on fuel, but then for occasional use this is no real problem. The build is very 'plasticy' and guards, covers etc are probably not that robust, so treat gently! All in all, for the price, a very good buy for occasional use for the amateur.

I have shopped around, for a chainsaw for about a month, after my chain saw that i had for about 5 years was acting up, I purchased that d saw at a large chain store, and it to was a great little chainsaw, until the gasoline started to raise havoc on the internal parts, I purchased my old saw for around the same price as this saw, I am quite impressed with the power of this saw for the price,if compared to my old saw this saw blows that saw away hands down there is no hesitation, no bogging down, there is just no comparing the two, this saw just, starts right up, does it job,(cutting in the cross and with the grain). I hope I can keep this saw for a long time .

Similar to some of the other reviews. I had been using branded saws and previous 2 seen over 30 years service. Was very doubtful about how an £80 saw would compare.
Fear not, for the money this can't be beaten. It is a quality product and cuts like a dream. Loads of power and in the week of having it cut about 400kg ash, 400kg elm and 250kg pine. All done like a hot knife through butter.
I would highly recommend this saw. Next day deliver too which was result after the last one packed up.... many thanks.

It was a little difficult to get started the first time, but once it was running it was great.

This is a fantastic buy. I received next day and easy to set up. I was a bit concerned about the reviews I had read saying it was hard to start but no problems at all in starting. First time use I cut an 18 inch diameter 30 foot larch tree down which made light work of both the felling and cutting afterwards. Wish I had bought one sooner.

Smashing product for the price. A bit tricky to start first time - there is no primer bulb - but great once going.

I'm not an expert on chainsaws or 2-stroke engines in general, so I did have some concerns that I might struggle with assembling and starting this saw, as others have reported.
Yes, the instructions are not very well written and the diagrams are not the best, but it really isn't difficult to put together. Yes, I had a few problems starting it - with hindsight I should have closed the choke a lot sooner than I did, but I got it going in the end and I've no problems starting it since.
It works well, cutting through the trees with ease and I am delighted that I decided to buy it. At the end of the day it's all about cost verses the amount of work you need the tool to do, and for me this one certainly struck the right balance.
For anyone looking to fell the odd tree or cutting up logs for the fire, I would certainly recommend this porduct.

I have owned three chainsaws before this one and the experience came in useful in setting up and early use. If you are new to chainsaws then the manual may confuse or disappoint and some YouTube research would seem like a very good idea. A good general introduction is provided here:
Don't expect your first attempts at starting to be necessarily easy-peasy. They are not. Remember this is a powerful machine with strong compression. Take great care to use the choke ONLY until the machine gives some indication that it may start (it gives a little kick) then push the choke button in. If you don't do this you are likely to flood the engine and seriously consider a bad review and return This would be a pity. You are well advised to hold the saw firmly to the ground and expect to fell some strong resistence to your pulling on the starter chord. I found the first few starts were best done with one foot on the handle plate and the other foot on the top of the black sleace of the wrap-over handle. In this way the saw couldn't budge as I used both hands to pull the starter. Another tip is not to over tightten the chain and to make sure it will move easily around the guide bar. Do this wearing a strong pair of gloves (engine OFF of course). The starting will get easier the more you use the machine.
How does it perform in operation?
Pretty well. I have had my saw for a few weeks now and in that time have cut down three trees - around 20 foot tall with a girth of 14 inches or so. I haver also spent several hours cutting firewood from the trunk and branches. The saw hasn't complained at all - although my back complains from time to time (old age approaches I'm affraid).
Would I recommend this saw?
Provided you are realistic in your expectations, spend some time and patience in getting used to it and don't expect it to last a lifetime then the answer is a definite YES. As a pretty good chinese copy of existing saw features it represents extrordinary value for money. My last saw cost more than five times as much - but it did last 12 years. The likely after sales service and spares is a consideration but I will be happy enough if the machine lasts beyond its guaratee period.
A final note.
This saw is no lightweight (which can be seen as a good thing) and If you expect to use a machine mainly for cutting logs and clearing branches then perhaps you should consider a 15" or 16" model - 20" takes a bit more care and management. Just a thought.
If you expect to use you saw
