When looking for a chainsaw, it is important to consider not only the price, but the quality of the machine. Some low price chainsaws, are poor quality, and are like a disposable razor, you use it a few times, and then it will no longer work. Repairing some of these machines will be uneconomical, so the only option is to replace it with a new model.
Other cheaper chainsaws are built to last, for example the Timberpro CS-5800 chainsaw is a priced at £89.99 and comes with a 2 year warranty, providing peace of mind that the machine will last, and spares are available for machines.

Would you prefer to buy a £60 machine, and replace it in 3 months, or spend an extra £30 for something that will last for years. When you want to use your machine, you should have the faith that the machine will start and run without any problems, whereas the cheap machines will be so hit and miss, it will end up costing you more in the long run in wasted time and replacing the machine.

See the Timberpro 58cc 20" Chainsaw here:  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Petrol-Chainsaw-58-cc-3-4HP-20-Saw-Blade-2-Chains-Bar-Cover-Bag-Tool-Kit-/281119737916?pt=UK_Home_Garden_GardenPowerTools_CA&hash=item41740ac83c

S
afety is also another important consideration, the cheaper chainsaws tend to have limited safety features that can be unreliable at best. Failure of the anti-vibration mounts is also a big problem, as they are designed to be a throw away machine, they are made to last a season, and sometimes they don't even last that long.

Buy cheap, and you will end up buying twice, and with a Chainsaw, can you really afford to scrimp on safety.

Support is also another big factor to consider. We offer full support and after sales advice for our customers, so any questions will be answered by an experienced user, familiar with all of our products, so we can always help you solve any problems.

The final thing to consider is spare parts - Chains, Bars and other consumable items will need replacing from time to time. The cheaper disposable machines tend to not have readily available spares, as the machines are not designed to last long enough for a bar to need replacing for example.

There are lots of things that need to be considered, so the main advice is not to only rely on price, but also on quality and longevity of the machine.
