Bosch UniversalChain 35 Electric Chainsaw Review

Note: This product supersedes the Bosch AKE 40 electric chainsaw.

The Best Domestic Chainsaw?

The Bosch UniversalChain 35 is a powerful entry level chainsaw with a high performance 1800 W motor. With a full 40 cm bar, a high-quality Oregon chain that runs at a speed of 9 metres per second, and a weight of only 4.1 kg, this chainsaw is powerful yet light enough to facilitate ease of use around the garden. It offers optimum user safety with its effective kickback brake that has an instant reaction of less than 1 second. Safety is extremely important each time you use a chainsaw and in addition from having a kickback brake, this chainsaw model emits an audible signal to let you know if you’re tilting it at a potentially dangerous angle.

The huge gripping teeth on this efficient machine enable good leverage and precise cutting. Being made from a hardened steel the teeth also serve the very important function of working in conjunction with the kick-back brake to reduce the chances of the blade being forced back in your direction. At just 4.1 kg in weight, this is probably the best lightweight chainsaw on the market, it’s far less of a strain to carry and operate than the majority of other electric chainsaws, meaning you can concentrate on the task at hand rather than whether or not your arms will give out at a moments notice.
Its unique design makes this model durable  compared to other chainsaws as well as it providing you with an easy and comfortable cutting experience. The UniversalChain 35 is fully packed with power and it also features automatic lubrication complete with an oil cap filter to enable timely and clean lubrication that will ensure that the chainsaw stays in good working order for a longer period. The SDS system fitted in the chainsaw provides a fast and smooth tool-free chain changing and tensioning.
