3rd page down, should be Ok for those sensitive locations where the noise of a traditional chainsaw would be a nuisance!

We have been looking for a solution to the problem of a quiet chainsaw and wonder how good these are. Has anyone tried one and is there a UK distributor?

Is this a joke or is there really such a thing as a manual winding chainsaw? Not very good with tools so if its a joke you had me going.

Beware - I got one of those "50-FT GARDEN HOSE / EXTENSION CORD COMBO" not realising that (i) it's no good on UK 3-pin mains power outlets without an adapter and (ii) I measured my garden in metres :-(

Not sure about these things but wouldn't it be a bit dangerous having a wet power cable? You might get a shock. ?

I had one of those hose/leads but the water kept coming out then getting sucked back in again. It happened really fast, maybe as much as 50 times a second. i think i must have bought the alternating current version.
