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.

I have had several electric chain saws and this one seems to be the most powerful I have ever owned. The nice part was the associate who sold it to me offered a spare chain, in which I found was needed about three hours after I started cutting with the saw, due to the fact that I was cutting a hardwood tree. Very good saw.
This saw works great for lighter work. It is not made to fall trees but more for trimming and cutting branches. It is light and easy to operate for long periods. Just remember to check the bar oil regularly as being electric you won't run out of gas.
I purchased this chainsaw to cut down a 45' cottonwood tree and 25' desert willow. This product went above and beyond my expectations. Being a woman who does alot of gardening and home improvement projects, I have several tools, and this chainsaw is so easy for me who isnt extremely strong to handle. Definately recommend.

I bought this on sale via Sears Online. For the price I figured if it stayed togeather for two days of intense work it would be worth the price. It has seemed like the first two days were just the break-in period. This little gem has not only performed brilliantly, but even takled a couple of jobs I know it wasn't really designed for. I think the trick really is to let the saw run while cutting and not try to force it to cut. Of course this is true with all chain saws. Those teeth they put on a lot of saws to "grip" the work can really slow down cutting. A sharp well oiled and adjusted chain does much more good. I would reccomend this saw even if it wasn't on sale.

I have cut down several trees and cut the branches up to firewood size. This is very easy to use and will get the job done if you let the blade do the work. Don't force it through the tree. It isn't made to do that. But let the saw do the work and it will handle it. Don't expect the speed or power of a gas chainsaw. I have gas chainsaws, but get tired of pulling to start when in a tree. This is much easier.
