Pros and cons

According to our kettingzaag expert
  • With a bar length of 40cm, it's suitable for coarser sawing.
  • You can tension the chain without using tools.
  • You suffer less from vibrations during sawing, thanks to the vibration-damped handle.
  • Due to the lack of an oil level indicator, you can't see when it's time to top up the oil.

Description

With the Bosch UniversalChain 40 chainsaw, you can easily cut thick branches and tree trunks up to 40cm thick. This means you can collect enough firewood for warm and cozy winter days. Simply add a fire basket and marshmallows to complete the setting. The relatively large 250mm oil tank and efficient oil supply system ensure you won't have to refill the chain oil as quickly. You can't accidentally spill the oil on the handle, because the tank is located on the side. The soft handle ensures you'll work comfortably with the saw. In addition, you can easily adjust the tension on the saw chain without tools. The vibration-dampening handle reduces shocks while you're sawing. This way, you'll work more comfortably than with a chainsaw that doesn't have this.

super saw

  • Weight
  • Good in hand
  • Manual

In my opinion, the instructions for use could be made clearer, they should be read carefully and some drawings should also be clearer. The saw is easy to handle, due to its weight and the noise level is also fine. Assembling the chain is quite difficult and requires routine. The saw certainly meets my expectations, especially regarding safety and it is a saw that can be seen

Does what it was made for

  • Safe
  • Saws fine
  • Difficult to put chain around it

Never worked with a chainsaw before. Just asked for help putting the chain on, which is not easy. Because you have to keep tightening the chain afterwards (which I forgot), I had to put it around it several times. Have experience with it now but it remains difficult. It is quite heavy if you have to work overhead. Uses chainsaw oil. Cuts down fine trees up to 25 cm in diameter. Sorry about the short cord. Due to the safety trade, I don't think it is suitable for left-handers. Tightening is easy. Does what it has to do.

A discovery

  • Install chain

It is essential to read the manual before use with this chainsaw. Safety and correct operation are absolute prerequisites for correct use. Unfortunately, the instructions are not completely complete: eg image J is incomplete (references X-Z are missing). The pictures have also been hidden in the back without being able to unfold them. The installation of the chain is quite difficult. Applying to the sword is fine, but then the chain wheel must also be tensioned for a long time. And that only works after a few attempts. In fact, you're just short of a hand. Please note that the required saw chain tack oil is not included and an extension cord is missing in this version. Both are fundamental… Until now I had only occasionally worked with a chainsaw. This means that the cord takes some getting used to. Make sure this is over the shoulder. There are still a lot of trunks in the garden and some unwanted and dead trees also have to be cut down. In short, plenty to do. the 4.2 kg machine with a 1,800 W motor (chain speed 12 m/s) turns out to be an efficient and fast machine. Up to 35 cm thick, it goes on its way undisturbed. I am very positively surprised. Make sure you always position the claw stop correctly to avoid dangerous situations. Also do not saw thin branches because the machine could then shoot away. After a day's work, the logs are neatly ready to be split and some trees have also been sawn into pieces. A great saw that works surprisingly well. A wonderful result after a day's work. Cleaning is also easy. In short, a real must in its class.

great saw!

  • Powerful
  • Robust
  • tensioner of the chain

Given the length of the saw blade, this is a saw intended for smaller work and especially pruning. I used it to saw away a fallen tree of +_ 30 cm thick. Say the slightly heavier work. This went very well. The saw is very powerful and even amazing for a power saw. Never got stuck in the wood and it didn't sound like the saw was having any trouble with it. The saw is very light and manoeuvrable and in a difficult spot between vegetation I was able to work with it for a long time because of its low weight. The design and design is simple, compact and smooth. This is very nice maneuvering between branches and so you can easily reach everything. This is remarkably easier than many other saws that are often heavier and also more clunky in design. The color of most Bosch products and therefore also this saw are a kind of camouflage. I had to search between all the branches and vegetation before I had it back. The chain tensioner is of the plastic double ring type. I'm not a fan of that myself and I keep messing with it all the time. It does feel durable on this saw unlike other saws. The tensioning system is unfortunately on practically all chainsaws these days. This saw with quality bar and chain from Oragon will not disappoint. The chain must be properly tensioned and adjusted very frequently, given the shorter saw blade that makes sense, especially because I was sawing at odd angles on a slope, this puts a lot of strain on the chain. The plug has a handy retaining clip to prevent it from popping out. So although the saw appears simple, it is a well-thought-out and complete device that cannot go wrong with it and can take a beating. It seems to me to have been a good investment to choose this quality product with the previous experience of the cheaper saws in mind.
