I would suggest to put additional jackstand or spare wheel as a backup in any case the liftjack fails/ fall down. just a safety measure
Made a video to show how QuickJack lifts since you asked. The bar in the middle of the jack is the mechanical lock that keeps the jack upright even without hydraulic pressure.

how do you release the lock? Just lift each side individually? This is electrically actuated? Nice

To lower the jack, first step is raise the jacking frame to the highest position to release the mechanical lock. Then manually pull the bar up on each side to reset the locking cam (silver piece at the end). From there just lower down the jack.

The frames are lifted using hydraulic pressure provided by an electric hydraulic pump powered by a 12V battery (car battery will do)

Same brand of chainsaw as mine.
Mine already making money after bringing down 4 trees.
You dont have to push it back and forth like a normal saw. Let the weight of the saw do the job or pivot it using the metal claw thing.
With Chinese saw, u need to make sure the oiler works or u will burn the chain. These chinese saw is as powerful as the ori one and is worth the money for DIY guy.
From experience, using normal 2T is better than expensive 2T as engine felt more happy when being revved.
I changed my bar to 18inch with Oregon chain but still keep the ori chain and bar.

You probably shouldn't be showing how fast you were going which is obviously above the legal limit anywhere in KL. If anyone was a dick and reported you to PDRM, they'd be able to use this as proof and issue a saman.

Yes buddy totally agree with you. For the price I was also amazed with the performance felt as good as a branded one. I too got back value on my investment. Prior to this I hired people to cut down they charged RM700. Now I have a free chainsaw.

The problem I had was that the chain was blunt therefore I need to put more pressure and move forward and backward to cut the palm trunk. Also mine somehow the chain tensioner the bolt thread got stripped, I think I over tighten haha. Overall no regrets purchasing it.

Yup I have tried to be careful by censoring out my car number plate. So even if I go over the limit not easy to trace. Sure they can check through my face but it is easier for police to catch people just on the road lol.

check your oil pump. I increased to almost max flow as we are not expert and does not know how hard some trees are.I Learn that the hard way when cutting a rambutan tree to smaller pieces after the tree was struck by lightning. Burnt the chain, after that oil pump fail.

Parts are cheap and available online.

Just like car engine but smaller scale.

If cant start check for spark..Most of the time fuel is ok due to design of the carb which does not hold fuel. If no spark then change the coil. If got spark then check fuel supply where it only got fuel screw for idle and high rev.

If chain runs at idle then check clutch. Clutch spring is worn out.

If cant full throttle despite pushing the throttle to the max then check carb linkage.

Always check chain oil level to prevent damage to chain and bar. Its like checking engine oil level on our car engine.

Now got fuel injected saw and battery powered saw.

Best part is change of engine block does not require Puspakom inspection and JPJ approval..hahah
