I have to say it's shameful how people come to the shop with saw in hand asking us to change the chain over, sometimes they haven't even bought it from us

Put it on backwards for them, an hopefully they will not return!

Yep - it would not bother me so much but when you get the 'mate I thought these Sugi bars were good? only had light use for 2 weeks and look at the state of it!'............. do you point out to folks that they haven't got a clue how to look after this part of their gear?

You could point out that blunt chains strain the power pack, wear the operator out and cost money by cutting slower = longer day !! K

This is a good thread, yeah name and shame as long as I ain’t on the list ? bar chain and sprockets are consumable items, it’s amazing how many people actually think they should last the life of the saw!

Rob do you stock a good range of the GB bars fir the common saws as I want to swap onto them as ours wear out ?
