At this price why not get a well known brand like Stihl or husqavarna?
Well, for starters, you’re going to spend a lot more for a comparable Stihl saw ($400+). Also, Tanaka has a great reputation.
If Tanaka has a good reputation, Husqavarna has a GREAT reputation. A comparable Husqavarna will cost about $50 more than the Chinese-made Tanaka listed here.
“Rear Handle Chain Saw” — are there a lot of chain saws that aren’t rear handle??? Maybe you hold them at the front where the chain is??
The new Husqvarna stuff is okay, not great. They started selling through mass merchants and, as the prices dropped, so did quality.
I don’t know where you’re looking, but the equivalent Husky saw (which, I’d argue isn’t a commercial saw and not as good) is $400.
This is a very nice commercial-grade saw at a decent price. If I was looking, I’d definitely pick one up.
Bought one last year…have had no issues at all…have cut 4-5 large trees and have cut 6 -7 cords of wood. Great saw and runs great it has one of the best warranty on the engine compared to any other saws…read the reviews…I also have a 14" Tanaka…perfect!!
Husqvarna homeowner stuff is built in the U.S.
Pro-saws are Sweden.
Semi-pro saws I’m not sure.
I have a Husqvarna riding mower. 24hp/48inch cut. Nice machine. One of few made with a steel hood. Even John Deere has gone cheap. Plastic hood. I’m kind of fond of stihl saws myself.
I wish I was in the market for a new chainsaw, because I would jump on this deal without thinking twice. This model can honestly hold its own against any Stihl (which I consider to be the cream of the crop) or other pricier chainsaws. Can’t go wrong here y’all!
I bought the Hitachi Version of this Saw back in 2013. I believe these saws are the same. So from my personal experience id say this saw is an awesome saw. I’ve used it for felling at least 15 trees never any issues that weren’t user initiated. Runs smooth always starts first or second pull. That being said I payed considerably less for my hitachi and that included a gas can. None the less Awesome SAW
My dad had a Stihl that was always in the shop, never ran worth a crap. I got a Husqvarna 340 and it has been an awesome saw. That being said, Tanaka has a great reputation, and I’d likely pick this one up if I needed one right now.
Get a grip!
