Just the right chain saw when you only need to do small jobs a couple of times a year around the yard and light enough to easily carry.No fuel to mix and starting problem of gas models are gone.
Sears (Craftsman) used to have heir own 14" saw, when mine wore out, I prayed that they still made it; however, they don't. This is the closest that was available. I used it several times, and for the small size, it worked better than expected!.
so far the chain saw has been perfect for all the small jobs I need done. It is usefull for cutting small brush, branches and wooden trim jobs around the house. It stores away easily and is helpful because it is light weight and not cumbersome to handle. I would not be able to use a larger chain saw because I personally would not be able to handle it especially when it would be running. As a woman who does things herself it is the only thing I could find that works for me. I would recommend it to anyone in my situation.
This is a good saw for light to medium duty around the yard. As the name implies it is good for trimming small limbs. It is light enough to operate one handed in most cases. While this saw is a bit slow for large cuts so If you have tree trunks to cut you regularly you will want to look at something bigger. This saw if good for a home owner who occasionally needs it for around the yard.
I have just used this to cut a evergreen bush and works just fine. I really cannot see this on really big trees. But for smaller jobs this is perfect. I just pulled it out of box, read the instructions and went to work.

Purchased this because I was tired of hard starting gas chainsaw. Have had gas powered chainsaws for 30+ years. Wanted this to cut small limbs and bushes. Was surprised at the power. Have cut cedar and pinion wood that I harvest and bring home. Liked this so much I purchased 18" for heavier cutting. Had large dead Sycamore tree in yard. Used 14" & 18" chain saws to cut clear to ground level. Great saw.

From a day of use, it seems to do the job quite well. It was very easy to cut down a few bushes quite quickly with this. We even cut a small tree whose trunk had a diameter of about 7-8 inches--it took less than a minute. But the chain came off after about 30 minutes of use and it took us a while to put it back.

I bought this to do some light tree trimming. Little did I know that this cuts through some major branches without a problem. It is good and sharp and the chain did not slip off like others, I have experienced.
I both this saw to replace a 15 year old Black & Decker pole saw. The saw is exactly the same as the B&D except the B&D was a 10" blade. This saw also attaches to my B&D pole although being 4" longer, I don't expect to use it as a pole trimmer. Assuming I get the same life out of this one as the B&D, this saw will well exceed my expectations. BTW, I used my 10" B&D for small as well as several big jobs and it worked like a champ!! :)
This chain saw was very reasonably priced, and I was quite surprised at the quality and ease of use with this saw. For the amount I paid, this was an extremely good buy! I am very satisfied by this purchase.

Great value for the price, great for small branches or logs to use as firewood for the campsite. I also used it on my bushes. Easy and lightweight to handle, and no need to have mixed gas laying around that you can't use in any other product.
I had a few small trees and limbs to clear in the back yard well within reach of an outlet, so rather than spend about the same $$ to rent a gas chain saw, I bought this one. I don't think it will last much longer than what I need it for, but it has done this job well and is hanging in the garage should its use be required again.
