This is my first chainsaw,so a bit apprehensive to begin with.I found the instruction a bit hard to follow but managed nonetheless.Some initial start-up problems but cleaning the plug sorted it.Does a great job in use.It handles well.Delighted with my new toy!
put together but pictures are dark but took my time
cut up a lot of old 4x4 no trouble would recommend both store and tool
keeping in mind for future needs
easy assembly, started 1st time, tick over needed adjusting, I adjusted the carb (didn't have my glasses ) just wouldn't start after that. Spoke to Glen.. Returned it he adjusted it and I'm waiting to get some logs to use it... Excellent from start to finish...
Not a problem at the moment cuts as it should good saw for the home.
We are very happy with this Chainsaw. It enables us to perform all the tasks we planned in the garden (cutting branches of trees - and medium size tree trunks).
Arrived on time and as described.
Assembly was a bit er.... fiddly and hit & miss.
The manuel was in Chinglish and was generic to all Raptor models, so was uncelar for the one I bought Raptor38 16"
Once I sorted it (the chain brake is *very* stiff to begin with) it is fine, and excellent value.
Chain adjustment is a bit of a hit & miss affair though.
unpacked the saw took a while to release the brake .Now working pruned some trees no problems .Easy to start, good saw for the money
The UK part of the manual had very dark pictures so i had to refer to the German portion. Once I found out most of the starting instructions were for a more advanced model it started well. Cutting up logs is a doddle with it.
Not bad bought this to replace a spear & Jackson saw ( Chinese ) apparently , gave me 3-4 years trouble free use . This seems identical but for the colour . Cut a pile of logs no problem but an Oregon bar and chain would be better. As others have said the pictures in the manual are much too dark. Not a stihl but not a stihl price either.
I can only echo what other reviewers have said - Glen's help and guidance was exceptional and without that sort of back-up, I'm afraid the frailties of the User Guide would be well and truly exposed! He spent almost an hour on the 'phone on the morning of the 5 March going through the problems I was experiencing in assembling the Raptor38 chainsaw (mainly to do with the inadequacies of the User Guide) and without that level of support, I guess I'd still be trying to work out how to fix the chain and bar!!
The saw works very well - and unusually for these beasts, my problem is not getting it started - but stopping it! The on/off button appears not to work! Perhaps a carburretor problem?
Item was as described, came as a kit, but the manual was fairly easy to understand. Good price and cut my walnut tree down and into logs no problem.
purchased mine late august and have given it loads of work.GREAT piece of kit. Only one minor thing was that the on/off switch is on when it should be off re the stick on label.
I bought this as a first machine and glad I did not pay to much as it is very plastic and does not seem to robust, done all the instructions with what I could see due to dark pictures, also model does not match up to pictures ie oil filler is in different position. Starting takes ages wether this is due to me or machine I do not know,but even when warm and you stop for while still hard to start, lots of smoke from exhaust but I hope this is due to me till I get mixture perfect, overall it does the job but when using feels a bit flimsy but like I said you get what you pay for, I think parts are all from china,
