    I think maybe his last statement sums it all up.

    seems quite straight forward.

    He's raising a concern re a chainsaw on epay that does not have an inertia brake.

    I wandered over to ebay and had a look. there are 3 supposedly separate sellers, selling these death traps. Funnily enough, the blurbs are similar down to the spelling mistakes. Maybe a email to the respective Dept of Fair Trading or equivalent may be in order.

    Having no chain brake is probably not a concern if these saws are used in a milling (eg using an Alaskan type mill) situation.

    However, if you are silly enough to buy a non chain brake saw for "general" use then I'm guessing you probably shouldn't be using a chainsaw full stop.
    Cheers.

    The blurb for those saws claim they can achieve 13,500 rpm. Given that they appear to be a copy of circa early 1960's design saw I reckon they would be battling to get to half that.

    I wouldn't recommend using a cheap chainsaw on a chainsaw mill, the continuous loads involved in chainsaw milling are so high they stress quality machinery let alone cheap machinery.
    Chainsaw milling also voids the warranty on new saws so I wouldn't recommend using a new one either.

    The ideal type of saw is a newish Used quality saw just out of warranty or Older used quality saw
