Get saw-ted for a camping trip
With the Easter long weekend just three weeks away, it’s time to start planning your camping trip to make sure you’ve got everything you need for a weekend in the wild.
Power equipment superstore Motosapien has everything you need when it comes to chainsaws, including expert advice and great deals.
Until the end of the month, outdoor enthusiasts can save $100 on the Husqvarna 236E – the ideal camping chainsaw.
Powered by Husqvarna’s allnew X-Torq technology, the 236E provides more power with less fuel consumption and less emissions, which means up to 60 per cent less pollution than other chainsaws.
Other notable features of the 236E include its tool-less tensioning system and SmartStart function, which reduces resistance in the starter cord by up to 40 per cent, enabling you to start your machine quickly with minimum effort.
Motosapien director Matt Kiesey-Calding says the 236E is perfect for cutting firewood, hobby work, and lighter cutting work around the home, such as pruning.
“It’s light, easy to start and operate, powerful and, like all Husqvarna products, reliable.”
In the unlikely event that something does goes wrong with your chainsaw while out in the bush, there’s no need to worry as parts are easy to source, he said.
Even remote destinations with only small towns, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find someone to repair your chainsaw or that has parts for it.
Try not to go any bigger than a 16 inch or you’ll be hitting the dirt with the bar;
Carry a maintenance kit with a chainsaw file, extra spark plug, socket and wrench, and possibly a slot screwdriver;
Invest in a second chain – it’s easier to put on a second chain rather than sharpening the old one.
Husqvarna replacement chains are available at Motosapien from $35.
“When researching camping chainsaws on the web, Husqvarna is easily the most commonly recommended brand,” Matt says.
“People just love how easy it is to start and that they know they can depend on it because of its reliability.”
If you already have a chainsaw, take it in to Motosapien for a service so you can be sure that your product is running in top form.
If you don’t have one, check out Motosapien’s range of products and pick up a Husqvarna 236E for $299 – $100 off the regular retail price.
