Hyundai chainsaws: an overview
On the Russian market of household appliances, Korean chainsaws Hyundai are represented by five models. The reason for this phenomenon is that the manufacturer paid more attention not to the diversity of the range, but to the functionality and quality characteristics of its products.
Structurally, each model is focused on a certain area of work, so when choosing a chainsaw, it is important to determine the peculiarities of its future application. According to the performance characteristics Hyundai chainsaws are divided into two categories.
Range of application
Domestic saws are designed to mechanize sawing work in private households and country cottages.
Economical, easy to service and inexpensive to maintain, the tool is a complete:
- wood fuel harvesting;
- removal of land plots allocated for construction;
- caring for fruit trees and ornamental trees;
- harvesting wood for installation in the construction of log houses.
Performance characteristics of Hyundai brand household chainsaws
The line of household chainsaws includes three models of the classic layout, equipped with two-stroke ice and working on a standard mixture of high-octane gasoline and special engine oil.
The list of benefits includes:
- The Power Drive’s traction stability in all modes is provided by one of the best Walbro-brand carburetors in its category;
- Combination of compact size with easy access to internal devices and gas tank neck.
- The balance of the tool and the modern design of the body ensure a secure grip on the saw when working from different places;
- The presence of lightweight starters reduces the effort on the starter motor by nearly half;
- Additional convenience is created by the side placement of the chain tensioning mechanism.
Hyundai chainsaws are equipped with brand-name guide bars and sturdy, stable saw chains with a standard pitch of 3/8 inch.
A brief overview of the working properties of the domestic models of the plowsaw
Despite the small size, budget cost and simple series X360 in the design of the chainsaw has a two-speed engine rated at 2.2 hp. The cylinder displacement is 37.2 cc with an overhang to drive a 14-inch saw.
Technical equipment of the tool contributes to productive and safe work with a given service life. The saw weighs 4.6 kg and is equipped with advanced lighting, ignition, automatic saw chain lubrication and an emergency stop.
The model is equipped with a carburetor engine rated at 2.3 hp. The tool is designed for increased operating loads, that is why elements of semi-professional class chainsaws are used in the construction.
The advantages of this development:
- Operator comfort due to the optimal combination of drive power and weight of the tool as a whole;
- Reliability in everyday operation of the Japanese ignition systems and the tank from Walbro. The design includes the advantages of automatic control of quality and quantity of air-gasoline emulsion;
- Easy-Start system reduces starter resistance by an average of 30%.
- The efficiency of the saw’s cooling during operation is increased by the use of a metal sump of the engine and housing elements.
This model is equipped with a proprietary set of saws with an extended service life.
The Hyundai X410 Series chain saw completes the lineup of residential saws. The most powerful device in its class is equipped with a conventional internal combustion engine with a displacement of 40.1 cm3 and an output of 2.7 hp.
Despite the significant increase in traction parameters, the saw’s weight remained the same at around 4.6 kg. Unlike previous models, the X410 is equipped with a saw set from the famous Oregon brand. Possibilities of using the tool are expanded by extending the guide bar up to 40 cm.
The Hyundai 410 Series chainsaw is designed for long hours of work with minimal stops for refueling and cooling. The increased heat exchange is achieved by using a metal engine crankcase, increased area of the cylinder ribs u200bu200bt.
The saw differs from analogues of other brands:
- ergonomic configuration of the body and handles;
- comfortable positioning of the chain tensioner controls;
- Increased effectiveness of front brake for emergency stop.
Oil pump and lubrication system resources and durability of saw equipment are also increased.
Benefits of semi-professional chainsaws
The so-called Farmer models are designed for more intensive and longer cutting jobs with increased workload.
Powerful and handy tools can be used for felling wood, large-scale construction of wooden structures and maintenance of urban forested areas.
The design features of this category include:
- extensive use of wear-resistant coatings for piston group elements and loaded engine crank parts;
- low level of vibration and background noise;
- easy access to air intake filter and fuel and oil tank necks;
- Increased safety when carrying out heavy-duty jobs, thanks to the emergency stop mechanism of the saw chain.
Features of semi-professional chainsaws
Hyundai semi-professional chainsaw has a large power and torque reserve, which allows to perform sawing works in nominal conditions.
The introduction of agricultural saws with increased cylinder capacity is greatly facilitated by the presence of a booster pump and decompressor.
There are two models on the list, differing in drive power, performance and equipment.
The Hyundai farmer’s saw is on the list of models in high demand among consumers. The model is equipped with a branded carburetor engine with a displacement of 45 cm3 and 3.1 hp.
Voluminous sawing work is ensured by the 18-inch bar and stable traction characteristics in all operating modes, minimal vibration and production noise, standard for the whole line.
The 550 ml and 260 ml fuel and oil tank capacities, respectively, extend operating time away from the base. The performance of the Hyundai X460 Series makes it suitable for felling and chopping wood over 300mm in diameter.
The small lineup is completed by the most powerful and productive saw Hyundai X560 series. The device can claim the status of a professional model in terms of power and ease of operation.
The features of the model expands through the completion of the engine capacity of 56 cm3 and a power of 4.1 hp The tool can work with unified saws up to 50 cm in length.
Advantages of the Hyundai X 560
- economical fuel and chain oil consumption;
- relatively small size, weight 5.2 kg;
- moderate housing dimensions;
- resistance to high operating loads.
advantages and disadvantages
All models of the brand are characterized by repairability, which allows owners to eliminate errors and make simple repairs at home.
- The design of the tensioning mechanism allows the chain and, if necessary, the entire saw headset to be replaced in the shortest possible time. The wide range of spare parts and consumables makes it easy to put a malfunctioning chainsaw into operation quickly.
- In everyday use, a domestic or yard saw Hyundai of any type can become quite a worthy addition to the toolbox, designed for the effective mechanization of a wide range of household and construction work.
- The usefulness of such an acquisition is evidenced by the positive feedback from users and utilities.
Analysis of the information received from the owners showed that there were no serious drawbacks in the design of the entire model range. However, for comparison, we offer you chain saws “Interskol”.
reviews of owners
From my own experience, I was convinced that the quality and durability of inexpensive Korean chainsaws is in no way inferior to the advertised products of more expensive European and Asian brands. The modern features of the Hyundai X 360 are modest and are complemented by the affordable price for a wide range of potential buyers, inexpensive maintenance and stability of the working parameters for the last 3 years with flawless operation. Alexander
For the full operation of imported chainsaws, many users lack technical culture. A large part of the damages and malfunctions are the inevitable consequences of improper maintenance, use of substitute fuel and oil, and excessive loads. After a year and a half of operation, I give my Hyundai X380 chain saw a well-deserved 4+. Nikolai

Reviews of Hyundai X360
No problems in 2 years of use.
Inconvenient oil flow adjustment
I suffered with a hacksaw to cut down deadwood in the old garden. My husband is rarely available in the village, so I bought myself. Were afraid that I even could not start … Started and sawed. It’s not that scary, but it’s easier than using a hacksaw. The instructions are clear.
Just bought, not yet assembled, problems started, saw the first design, I do not know, so I took off the cover for about five minutes to put back on, nothing happened, the clamp did not give up, began to look at the cover there clamp goes into the brake handle, in short, changed the position of the brake handle and a miracle happened ))
powerful, lightweight, ergonomic, good value for money
high oil consumption
Bought it yesterday at the hypermarket on sale for 4990. Been wanting to buy one for a long time. But it didn’t resist. Checked out the country today at work. Just piled up 3 birch trees – the wood comes straight from the neighboring abandoned land. Pulled up with a half a turn. Had to tighten the threshing nail a few times, but I think this is the initial grind, then it should pull less. On the hot also starts with the first jerk, but on the half-cold is not immediately, there will be a need to adjust. I am satisfied with the saw.
understandable engine work, well assembled
I do not know about everyone, but mine starts only when I completely release the gas (not the air damper, but full throttle).
Troubled all weekend – checked the spark plug cleavage, and dried it, and got into the cylinder. Well that’s it! Just that I didn’t dance around them. I was already desperate, brought it to the store, where the salesman without touching the air damper, pressed the gas and jerked – the saw grabbed immediately and started. How was it?
Powerful, lightweight and of course the price. South Korea
Often breaks the chain
Got it for 3999 on sale in St. Petersburg. Decided to try the Korean novelty because it’s not China. I had to choose between the partner P340s and this. My partner has nice looking plastic, but the engine is weaker, in general it did not work. Hyundai has cheaper plastic, but the engine is more powerful, I did not have to accelerate to the limit, so there is a reserve. The carburetor is there, easy start… (there is a description on the schematic). Saw shrubs up to 20 in diameter, wet (live) wood – like butter, downloaded as needed. 4 refueling, half an hour break and again, 4 hours sawing, more short. Before filling, stirred up the chain. Saw horizontally and vertically, all tiptop. Saw my first 4, before that I had an electric, not even worth comparing. Completely satisfied, all my expectations were met. Included: saw, oregon chain, universal wrench, round files for sharpening the chain, two covers (for the zipper and flap teeth) and the tool with the warranty.
price, weight, ergonomics
No branded accessories like the Stihl, there is everything from clothing to various accessories
Bought in a hypermarket for 4990, immediately took the oil and extra Chain. The next day I got a canister for mixing the working mixture. And the hour had come. I filled up, checked the chain tension, pumped Primer and then followed the instructions. To my surprise, it started on the first try. The ems were not adjusted, the spark plug also has the correct gap from the factory. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to use it for its intended purpose, as I was doing this action in the parking lot, and there was nothing to see. But I will try it in the near future and will take a video on occasion. Reviews of not working out of the box or a rush or bad luck. You can find out more about the specs on the manufacturer’s website. Purpose gardening, hiking, zombie fighting, although in this case you have to wear the tire longer

Reviews of the Hyundai X410
Excellent starting, powerful engine 2.7 hp, easy to use, economical engine, chain with 57 limbs, no vibrations when working – really very convenient.
More expensive than analogues, but still Hyundai
I bought it and don’t regret it. I used to buy another company and the engine was breaking down in winter, so much so that a trip to the countryside could be ruined. With this one I hope all will be well, the price is 2 times the price of the analogue, but so far the saw is very satisfied. Made for people. For all the ergonomics and the position is the same tank. Yes and a powerful, sharp chain does well. But it’s actually still new, so it’s probably fine.

Reviews about the Hyundai X380
Value for money
Last season I decided to buy a new chainsaw, since the old one was almost ruined. The choice fell on Hyundai X 380. I can say that not once have I regretted the purchase of this chainsaw. It runs very quietly compared to the old one, has rubberized handles and good vibration protection, which makes it easier to work. All in all, I’m completely satisfied. And thanks to Klondike for the quick delivery!
I love this product, it’s light weight. Vibration damper with a spring 3. Settings: carburetor, summer/winter mode, amount of oil per chain. 4. All screws secured, tested at the factory. 5. Instructions in Russian (no errors). 6. ANFFER, FISHER AND FILTER. 7. Inertial chain brake.
1. Starting the saw – oh yeah! It’s a whole song, sneezes, cranks and then stalls. The only way is to pull the starter and quickly start from the degas (did not have time to pull again). 2. idle is not stable, periodically stalls – a little tilt up and down – jerk – stop. Can’t get any rise at idle at all. 3. Loose muffler seating on the working cylinder, leaks under the standing bolts at the attachment point. 4. Filter with cloth that is not trustworthy, fine dust can be overlooked. 5. No oil and fuel stand window (very practical with the 180th Stihl’e) 6. Mounting – China.
Made of high quality components – probably will last longer. Chinese failed to adjust the operator properly, may stop when tipping or win a ride if there are problems with idling. Most likely will need additional adjustment at the service center. Bought for 6500 rubles at a discount, not worth more.
Immediately found 4 production errors – does not idle, often goes out, broke the return spring of the starter knob, candle with false distance. The service center openly admitted that Hyundai makes low quality garden tools.
Bought it and immediately brought it in for service because it wouldn’t hold idle speed. If you give the gas, it often stalls. The running gear is disgusting. Eats oil like alcohol vodka. Service said Hyundai makes only good cars, and garden tools not so much. The starter handle return spring also broke when I took it out for repair.

Reviews about the Hyundai X560
Powerful, the price compared to the well-known brands, excellent detailed instructions.
Chinese performance. If Hyundai makes their car with the same quality, I would think hard before buying. The air filter is made in such a way that sawdust is constantly flying into the engine. There are no normal gaskets. I recommend being careful and washing the air filter every day as instructed! Tried to tighten the nut, plastic broke, quality is like China. Ordered a new one that promised and was gone. Maybe I forgot to answer, glued the nut on, so far it works. The saw is purely domestic, requiring a very sensitive and attentive attitude. The constant loosening of the chain tension smoothes it out, it seems to be under tension, and the chain is regularly cancelled. This phenomenon is not seen in other saws.
Every year we cut 10-15 m3 of firewood. We use Hyundai X560 for the second season. We also have an echo saw and a partner with small tires. Usually all 3 saws are on the billets. Of all the echo saws the most enjoyable and not a problem. The only saw that doesn’t blow work in extreme heat. The gasoline ones don’t want to do on the others. Hyundai X560 was taken under big tribes. If there is no need to often saw thick trees, it is not worth buying, the same sounder is no less productive. Electricity in large trunks is usually enough. Doubts about durability, I would definitely not recommend it for regular work.
