What people write about on forums: reviews of owners
Ilya Larionov, 47, Tambov region:
I live in the countryside, there is no gas – I have to heat with wood. In the woods I carry a chainsaw, but at home I want to save some money. Immediately chose a powerful tool, because I often have to saw logs with a thickness of 70 centimeters or more. Model Daewoo DACS 2600E liked the appearance, good reviews and price. The first impression is: the saw is well assembled, the quality of plastic is at a high level, the tensioner without tools does not fail – the chain is securely fixed. I can easily cut and saw into small wedges an old acacia tree near the house, the chain is of high quality, the saw fits well in my hand, my back does not get tired.
Semyon Vatrushkin, 44, Nizhny Novgorod:
I am engaged in construction and repair of wooden structures. For a long time I wanted to buy an electric saw, so that it would be strong enough, not complicated and not too noisy. Went shopping, looked at the reviews and chose the model Daewoo Dacs 1800E. The reviews on Daewoo were good. The engine had enough power, it did not weigh much, and cut pretty fast. Of course, I did not do without the posts. After six months, there were noises in the plastic. It seems that all the screws and nuts are dressed, but rattling can still be heard. About the same time the power cable broke and had to be replaced. Although it should have happened sooner. First of all, it is short, and secondly, it is made of low-quality material.
Advantages: price, appearance, quality motor, quiet, lightweight;
Disadvantages: the plastic rattles on the body, poor quality power cord.

Eugene Kozyryatsky, 29, Kotonop
“I bought a Daewoo 2500E saw and decided to leave my generous positive review. Assembled everything as quickly as possible, the only thing is that immediately installed not the native chain that came with the kit, but Calm. I decided to test it on an old acacia tree. As a result, I got very excited and literally sawed 4 wooden cubes in 3 hours of work. I worked intermittently to keep the saw from overheating. The trunks were 30-0 cm in diameter, and some, in general, went to about 70. So, from the pluses, I can highlight the assembly, although it was made in China, ease of maintenance, smooth and smooth operation of the engine, high power.
Mikhail, 34, Zaporozhye
“I am a long-time chainsaw user and recently discovered Daewoo. I read a lot of reviews and started using a circular saw and a screwdriver. So I chose the Daewoo 2700E and am happy to write a review. What I liked about this particular model was the ease of assembly and chain tensioning. In total it took no more than five minutes. The engine runs great, I’ve cut different trees: apple trees, beech, walnut, acacia, you name it. The oil consumption is very moderate, the chain bars are great. But after some time I changed to a Calm chain and did not saw anything at all, but a godsend!
