Re: What was your first chain saw

B&Q Pro Line 36cc saw with an 18inch bar.... Bought it shortly after we we moved in our house so 2002 and its still running well. But its new home is the south of france with my dad, who loves it cause its dead easy to start and it just works. He knows its not going to stay like that for ever though!

Prior to that i used my dads Husky, dunno what it was but it sounded great till the bearings went suddenly and with style.

never get bored of cleaning your tools, if you start off doing it you carry on and a clean saw is a happy saw
Ask any saw
