    A chainsaw is sure to reduce turn around time for woodfetching, but as it was mentioned before, trying to cut loose pieces of wood with a chainsaw or other handheld equipment might result in a woodfetching event with no return, ever.

    I ended up going for a cheapo entry level 45cc Ryobi chainsaw for R2k that had fairly decent reviews. I've already been able to help my parents get rid of a few large overhanging branches from a tree in their garden and managed to chop up a decently sized pile of braaiwood two days ago. It takes a bit of prepping to fasten the wingerd stompies down but then the saw just falls through them like a hot knife through butter. So far I'm very happy with the performance of the little machine.
    However, 2 days ago the throttle started sticking when released which is just about the most dangerous defect I can imagine on a chainsaw. Not the actual throttle trigger so I assumed it had something to do with the throttle cable connecting to the carb. However I did not want to mess with anything unnecessarily as the item is obviously under warranty. Instead I removed the clutch cover and cleaned the area out which was quite mucky with chain oil and wood dust. After that the chainsaw worked fine again.

    Is this normal? Can dirt around the clutch area cause this?
