Handy THPCS16 Petrol Chainsaw 400mm
It is important to read all instructions regarding petrol products. 4 Stroke engines require oil and some machines are supplied dry (No oil to start with). Running a 4 stroke petrol machine without oil will result in the engine seizing and is not covered under warranty.
2 Stroke engines will need to have a mix of oil in the petrol this is normally 1 part oil to 50 parts petrol but not always, again please read the instructions supplied with your machine. Petrol engines do require more maintenance than electric engines but if reguarly maintained they will normally give many years of use.
Always make sure your oil is topped up & your chain is tensioned correctly. This will ensure your chain life is extended & more importantly is operating safely.
Remember Chainsaws are dangerous. Do not attempt to use one if you have not fully read the instructions, are confident in the correct use & have adequate safety equipment & clothing.

great value and swift service.
Easy to use and i quickly pick up the operation of the chainsaw would recommend to others if they would like a cheap chainsaw
Starts really easily - first time usually. Has adequate power for small to medium logs but can labour on anything over 14 inches across - this is easily overcome with turning the log as go along. Comments in other reviews about build quality are valid and documentation is vague but if you want a chainsaw that is cheap and works ok this is for you.
This is a great little machine for garden maintenence.Following the instructions results in easy starting. My one complaint regards the users manual which cotains very sketchy instructions and diagrams that are barely discernable. I had problems locating the chain adjuster screw and still havnt found out how to regulate the chain oil supply. Apart from that it is good value for money.
Unfortunately this one came with a leaking fuel tank when on its side which i haven't reported yet as desperately needed to use it straight away and have been under severe attack at work and at home but will do this monday coming and try get a replacement. Have used it that way keeping it flat and works very well otherwise.
Starts second pull every time and after my previous saw, the pull is so easy it's barely believable! Wish i'd found this years ago. It tears through logs as a sharp new saw should. The instruction diagrams are ludicrously tiny so you need a magnifier but this is a minor quibble.
This was puchased as a replacement for my old stihl 16" saw. does everything the old one did at a third of the cost of a new stihl. The only 'missing' feature on the handy is a decompression button but that's something i was quite happy to do without to save £150! prompt delivery to southwest ireland - i'm impressed with the saw and the all tooled up service.
The chainsaw was purchased to cut down around 40 conifiers!! With 8 down, my husband said it is like cutting through butter!. the features and price were just what we were looking for. with a prompt delivery and the option to change delivery day, which really help us.
Overall a great value chainsaw. Ok a bit more clunky in operation and for basic servicing than the stihl i use at work but for general domestic use it is absolutely fine. Given the price it really is a bargain.
Difficult choke mechanism. Easy to start and use, runs well, cuts well and is a very useful tool for heavy pruning. only time will tell but to date am happy with it.
Bought this chainsaw based on the price and reports of reliability. i have cut up loads of firewood since receiving it and cant complain - it starts easily and cuts very well - plus the safety chain brake works very well early days but so far very positive for the price !!
Replacement as first died after 1.5 hours - choke control came away in my hand!
Purchased this chain saw after reading other reviews on this and other saws. the "handy" was the only one that received posative reviews. After using it, on light work, three times, it starts well, after a little perserverance the the first time, and cuts very well. only time will tell about it's "lasting ability", the choke mechanism may be it's weakness. Again problem with diagrams.
Really pleased with the service from tooled up, product arrived within days and when i was told it would. Ive used the chain saw for three days and have to say im very pleased with it. No problems srarting it either cold or warm, and pleased with the power and overall performance. As said in other reviews instruction diagrams could be better as it took me a while to find the tension screw but definately happy so far
Have only used the chainsaw a couple of times, but it works well so far.
Cutters on chain are a bit small. With sharpening they could quickly become too small. it is easy to start and runs well. it is light and easy to use.
Great budget chainsaw - good value for money and no frills. Just watch the petrol mixing instructions 25:1 not 50:1! I expect it will catch some people out.
Finally got round to using it last week. choke lever very hard to pull but started fine. Used on about 60m of trees without any problems. Choke lever broke away from carb so have returned to tooled-up. Very good returns procedure.
Arrived very quickly did not have to assemble it and started without any trouble. No oil measureing bottle though.
Works really well and is easy to use, starts easily and managed to cut lots of branches and 10 small trees with ease, excellent value for money
Top chainsaw,starts ist time cuts really really well, would recommend.
Starts easily and runs smoothly. Two-stroke engines of this size can often be difficult to start but i haven't had any problems with this. Very good!
Excellent value for money. Started almost immediately after prepping it with oil & fuel. Instructions could have been clearer with larger diagrams.
This little chain saw is an absolute gem i bought it from tooled up a few months ago for cutting up logs for my log burner. i've used it all through the winter nearly every day to cut what i needed for the fire and it has never let me down once. it does exactly what it says on the instructions and fires up after two or three pulls. the oregon chain and bar are top quality items and the chain is still sharp and i've only had to adjust the bar once so far. i have used it to cut up both hard and soft woods like pine oak and elm up to 12" in diameter with no trouble at all. i have had other chainsaws in the past which have given endless trouble starting and going quickly blunt but this one just keeps on and on. it has good safety features and i would recommend it without reservation.
Not bad for the money, but would prefer a larger engine. No fuel mixing bottle as stated only negative point. Delivery and service exellent.Good safty features.
Very good chainsaw does the job. Received very quickly ordered 2-30 pm on the door 8-30am next day. required a part to replace and that came again within one day.
Very light and compact for carrying, easy to start, good safety cut off feature, very powerful for its size. So impressed we bought two! Only negative point was instruction leaflet not up to date - stated free measuring bottle which was not included, however, handy did sent one as we had pointed out their mistake.
This is by far the best value for money we have found, the saw is light and easy to start, the size of the blade is perfect for cutting logs for a wood burning stove or trimming trees.
Started well,but after using third time would not start.Had to be exchanged.No problem there,well done.However after using the replacement about five times the recoil mechanism feel apart.I gave up on the thing! I took it apart to see what the problem was. A very poor build. Wasn't worth getting repaired. I'm afraid these machines are all face,made to look good but they are seductively cheep! My advice to everybody ,supplier and buyer is don't bother,waste of time and money.
