Ryobi Chainsaw Giveaway and Review!

 

In our area wood heat is not just something for the occasional picturesque fire, but instead is used all the time to heat homes.  You will see massive piles of firewood stacked and ready for burning all over our town.  And people start preparing early!  Our next door neighbor already has five cords stacked and ready for next winter.

Ryobi 20 in. 46 cc Gas ChainsawSo when Ryobi offered to send me a brand new 20 in gas powered chain saw to review I was thrilled.  We use our wonderful little cook stove to heat our home in winter and also to cook and bake with so getting fire wood is very important.  And to get firewood you need a reliable chainsaw.

As soon as the chainsaw came in via fedex we tried it out. It came with its own hard case.   It was super easy to start and use. I myself was able to start it no problem. I love it and so does Hubby.  It is not difficult to control, isn't too heavy, and is just right for bucking firewood.  Also as far as price goes they are very reasonable for such a nice chainsaw.  I would recommend this to anyone!

As a bonus all Ryobi Outdoor Products purchased on or after JANUARY 1, 2009 are covered by a 3-year warranty.   

Not only that but Ryobi carries a huge amount of different tools, from power tools to painting tools.  And they are all covered by a three year warrenty!

  30. Oh boy - we could use so many other their wonderful products! Two items that really caught my eye and that would make my Honey/Hubby's life so much more pleasant as we learn to deal with THIS VERY VERY OLD HOUSE! (Especially as we are getting - and feeling - OLDER ourselves - all the time!

    So I would have to do some more extensive homework before I could decide which of the wonderful BLOWERS they carry - in particular the "Backpack" models - with some serious back injuries and two relatively recently replaced hips - he (we) could really use all the help we can get with "blowing: SNOW and LEAVES for started.

    A Power Washer like:

    wold be great too - as would any and all of the outdoor gardening tools!
