Providing a reliable, powerful and efficient cutting experience, this entry-level petrol chainsaw from Hyundai is designed to perform to a consistently high standard in domestic, estate and semi-professional settings. If you’re looking for an affordable chainsaw which is easy to maintain and provides the latest safety features, you can’t go wrong with the HYC3816.

Equipped with a 16” (40cm) Oregon bar and chain, the HYC3816 chainsaw is more than capable of making quick work of challenging cutting tasks. Designed for domestic and estate use, this petrol chainsaw is ideal for logging and ground level tree and hedge work.

The recoil start, 38cc Hyundai engine which powers this chainsaw provides ample cutting power and is easy to start. Running on 2-stroke petrol, it provides great fuel economy and is cheap to run.

Designed with safety of the operator as a top priority, it features a safety brake which will protect you in the event in the event of a kick-back. Should the chainsaw be pushed backwards towards you, the safety brake will engage when your hand pushes against it. This stops the bar and chain immediately, making it much easier to get the chainsaw back under control without injury.

As well as being incredibly safe, the HYC3816 also features anti-vibration handles which results in a comfortable cutting experience. The lowered vibration design, weighing just 4.7kg, is a huge advantage if you plan on using this chainsaw for extended periods of time, reducing the amount of strain you will feel on your back and arms.

Maintenance of this model is also incredibly easy, and a file guide and tool kit are provided with the machine, as well as a bar and chain cover for times when the chainsaw is not in use. Regular servicing and correct chain sharpening will help ensure that it keeps delivering the excellence built-in as standard by Hyundai.
