A while back, a friend of mine who is an arborist, gave me some logs. He also gave me some advice - “Cry once buy once”. Meaning, buy the expensive tool once, cry over the price, then move on. He was right.
I asked for advice on chainsaws a while back. I ended up cheaping out and getting a Worx branded one. That was a huge mistake. After maybe 20 hours of use, the plastic gear in the inside is completely stripped. And of course, they don’t offer replacement parts.
I should have listened to my friend. I should have listened to you. Now I know.
Buy once, cry once.
