Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rabbit72 Outstanding Tool!
I bought the Black and Decker rechargeable hedge trimmer earlier and wanted a second battery. Rather than just get a battery, I decided to get another tool with the same battery. This saw does an amazing job for its small size. I really put it through some tough jobs with some small trees I cut down, more than was recommended by the saw's specs. Having more than one battery is a must... larger limbs will eat up the power quickly when sawing large limbs into firewood sized logs. It is lightweight but powerful and tough. We nicknamed it the "Little Wonder" for all the tough jobs it handled so far! Great Purchase!

The BEST features were light-weigh (lift it with 2 fingers), quiet, and the 8" cut capability. I can cut most of the storm-fall that the pruners won't cut, just leaving just the trunks for the big guys. No pull-cord start and no leash (power cord), directions for set-up and use were clear and easy to understand, I feel like an old pro, and the safety features give me confidence. Am looking around now for more projects - maybe some arboreal sculpture?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jlove9865 Exactly what I expected!! Love it!!
I received my chainsaw and my son put it together for me with ease. I probably could have done it myself. It works with great ease and I was concerned about the battery life after reading other reviews, but quite happy with the battery power it lasted far beyond my expectations. Granted I was cutting small limbs and trees down, but was able to get quite a bit done. It will cut larger limbs and trees but it takes a little longer and uses up the battery faster. Lightweight and easy to use, great price.

Instructions to assemble were not the easiest to figure out. Had a difficult time tightening the chain. Both my husband and I have used it with great success.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weekender Great for small jobs but terrible battery
I've been wanting a chain saw for years but my husband refused (since his friend almost cut off his arm using one). Thanks to our landscaper who recommended a small, battery operated one, we finally bought this one and love it. Really quiet and just what we wanted for smaller jobs - trimming branches, removing small weed trees, etc. Very sharp and effective, lightweight. Two negatives - should come with some starter oil and the battery runs out after about 5-6 cuts! Really frustrating - and it takes hours to re-charge. It is perfect for our occasional use - now I can't get it away from him!

Amazed at what i can acvomplish with this. Lightweight and easy to use. Battery life is good but a spare would make a workday longer. I borrowed one to see if my 65 year old female body could handle it and couldnt stop. Fortunately i had lots of pruning and trimming to do. Worked so well i bought my own!

After contemplating whether to bur a gas powered or battery decided to go with this one which is adequate. It definitely has limited capabilities but is fine for cutting branches of 5" to 7" in diameter (and that may be pushing it) beyond that not recommended. The up side is battery powered, easy to start, clean and does its job ... I hope to get some mileage out of these lithium batteries (you need more than one as they drain pretty quick) which is the one area of concern. The B&D lithium batteries are not always dependable ... but so far so good!
