"Bosch Chainsaw AKE 40-18 S"

I bought this chainsaw when a 10 metre tree fell across my garden fence. I chose Bosch because I have other products mady by this company and they have appeared well designed and reliable. The 1800 watt motor was more powerful then I had expected and the instructions were extremely good covering the safe use of the chainsaw. I am pleased I bought this model with 40cm blade and not the shorter version at 35 cm.
The chainsaw has 2 excellent safety devices, the first requires two buttons to be operated to avoid accidental starting or use by a child. the second is an anti kick back device which applies a brake to the chain if the chainsaw is thrown upwards in the process of cutting a tree or branch. I also like the fact that you do not need spanners or tools to tighten the chain, it has a built in tensioning device which is easy to use. It is also relatively quiet compared to some chainsaws I have heard.
I have cut my fallen tree into manageable pieces and I am looking forward to trimming some overhanging branches in the near future.
