ive heard many of time people using the Etesia range of machines and wondered who they were well ive looked at there website, must say im not inmpressed with the overall look of the machines very simial colours to stihl's sister company Viking, and the pitures of there machines in action is, well leta just say not the best, I.E the brushcutter pictures look like two guys having a play in the garden and there chainsaw pic of the guy using a one handed chainsaw to cross cut logs ? as far as i am aware the use of such chainsaw on the ground is illegal due to the sheer danger of the kickback the chainsaw has. So all in all im not inpressed by the company and there products so would like to hear other people thought on the company and experiances with using there machiner.

Oh I have heard of Husky tools dont worry there! I've just not used or owned them... others have met my needs enough.
Perhaps you could arrange to trial an etesia from a dealer - you may find you like working with them, Although key here is everyone has their own preferences - I personally cant stand Hayters, but I've only ever trialed a few models so Thats just my opinion.
That you for the info i was after, david in regards to the etesia chainsaw it was a page of the actual Etesia website that i saw it mayby im looking at a different website ?
I find it strange that you have never heard or used Husqavarna equipment mayby its were i am from in north wales there are only a few makes of machinery were they have there own stores that sell there own product have after sales and services, for chainsaws its Stihl or Husqavarna for heavy duty strimmers and brushcutters its Stihl, for ride on mowers i use Toro, for my mowers i use Mountfield.
My personally preference for using these makes is not based on price its quality, durability, aftermarket services, same day spares availability and sound reputation, i will admit they cost the earth to buy but treat the machinery with care and they will last a long time, there are many smaller companies around but, one they dont last the distance, and you cant get the spares.
So when Etesia was mentioned by yourselves as a contender for a good machinery, if they would of fit my criteria for bying machinery i would understand i would buy one but they dont, and like i said ive never heard of them.
